NTPA, Bowling Green, Ohio’s NTPC Extend Sanctioning Agreement Through 2026

Columbus, Ohio—The National Tractor Pullers Association and the Northwestern Ohio Tractor Pullers Association, promoters of the National Tractor Pulling Championships in Bowling Green, Ohio, will continue their relationship for three additional seasons.

Dates for the next four editions, always the third full Thursday-Saturday in August, are August 17-19, 2023; August 15-17, 2024; August 21-23, 2025; and August 20-22, 2026. Conducted at the Wood County Fairgrounds since their inception in 1967, the National Tractor Pulling Championships will welcome 13 Grand National divisions in 2023. The Bowling Green winner’s circle will recognize this season’s GN champions in Super Stock Open, Doctor Preload Super Semi, and Light Modified as well as top finishers in the Hot Shot’s Secret Challenge.

“BG is the singular event in which every fan in the stands with pulling dreams wants to compete,” remarked Gregg Randall, the NTPA’s Executive Director. “The NWOTPA has created an atmosphere like no other across our circuit, and a top finish or even a triumph on either of those twin tracks is a career-defining achievement.”

“We are excited that the NTPC will continue its prominent place on our Grand National Circuit for years to come.”
