Tractor pull event to help support Lindsay FFA

— The sixth annual Lindsay Truck & Tractor Pull is set for 7 p.m., Friday and Saturday, June 6 and 7 at 2228 FM 1199 near Lindsay.

The popular event helps support Lindsay Future Farmers of America (FFA) and other Lindsay youth organizations.

“A hundred percent of the concession proceeds will go to the Lindsay FFA and Lindsay youth groups,” organizer Doug Voth said.

According to the National Tractor Puller’s Association, tractor pulling is a competitive motor sport in which modified farm tractors, modified tractors or trucks drag a metal sled along a prescribed course. The sled contains a box filled with weight that is mechanically winched forward as the sled progresses along the course.

“It’s really good family fun,” Voth said. “People come up to me and say, ‘I remember my dad bringing me to tractor pulls’ and now they’re bringing their kids.”

Safety is also a high priority at the event, Voth added.

In addition to the tractor pull competition, Friday night’s show will also feature fireworks and a concert by the Bois D’Arcs Band beginning around 10:30 p.m.

The event will also include a “pedal car pull” for children and a chance for guests to meet Ron Methvin from the History Channel series “Swamp People.”

The John D. Hale Band will perform following Saturday’s tractor pull.

The Lindsay pulls are sanctioned by the Outlaw Truck & Tractor Pulling Association and the Texas Truck and Tractor Pulling Association (TTTPA).

Tickets are $20 for adults and $5 for children six to 15. Children five and under are admitted free.
