Columbus, Ohio—Welcome, competitors and fans, to the 53rd championship season of the National Tractor Pullers Association!
The St. Joseph County Grange Fair Pull on Friday and Saturday, September 22-23 is the collaborative effort of the NTPA and the St. Joseph County Grange of Centreville, Michigan. Conducted at the grange fairgrounds in Centreville, the two-session event will star five Regional National divisions and one state-level division, with each session beginning at 7 p.m.
NTPA Championship Pulling brings together skilled competitors, dynamic machines, and ardent fans for outrageous displays of horsepower at fairgrounds and festivals across the United States. Specialized tractors, trucks, and dragsters tow a heavy metal sled along a straight, dirt track as the sled’s resistance increases. Within a class of similar vehicles, the one that pulls the sled the farthest is the winner. Pullers spend long nights traveling, wrenching, and tuning to put on the best show and take their best shot at prize money and season championships.
Scheduled to appear both nights at the 2023 St. Joseph County Grange Fair Pull are Super Farm Tractors and Modified Minis. Also hooking on Friday are Four-Wheel-Drive Trucks and multi-engine Modifieds. Arriving Saturday are Two-Wheel-Drive Trucks. All will compete for championships in the NTPA’s Region II (Minis and Modifieds: II-Northwest) and qualification to appear at the Enderle Pull-Off. As the event will occur after the 2023 Enderle, points will count toward the divisions’ appearances at the 37th annual on Saturday, September 14, 2024 in Urbana, Ohio.
Saturday’s session will additionally feature a Wolverine Pullers Super Stock Combo class. The Wolverine Pullers are the NTPA member state organization in Michigan.
