CHARLESTOWN, Indiana (April 10th, 2019)The kickoff event for the 2019 Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League Champions Tour is just a few weeks away with the Rudy's Spring Opener in Julian, North Carolina, creating a stir for pulling action.  The roster of pullers that pre-commit each season also draws much hype and prognostication as fans wonder "who's on the list?"

Starting tomorrow, Thursday, April 11th,  the Champions Tour pre-committed list will be released in two groups; The seven tractor divisions will be released first tomorrow, followed by the four truck classes on Friday, April 12th.   

Not to leave anyone overwhelmed with anticipation we'll give you some short bits of information about each class.   In the Unlimited Super Stock class, Team Chizek with Terry and Josh Blackbourn look to defend their places at the top of the class wheeling the Armed and Dangerous-themed tractors. Twelve other competitors have also signed up for action, looking to push the duo from Wisconsin to the limit.

Nick Skaar, Shaun Boyd, and Justin Johnson return to Super Farm competition defending yet another title on the Screamin Norwegian CaseIH.  Among the 17 other entries in the class there are new names with storied success looking to nab a spot at the top of the class in 2019...but who are they?

Gaining the most ground in terms of entries is the Super Modified Tractor class with 14 total competitors on the pre-commit roster.  Greg Boyd with the Green Streak Unlimited will have his hands full defending his 2018 title as many familiar foes return, joined by a host of "new" names that can simply be described as "legendary."

Roy Metz and the Get-R-Done Deere had a tremendous Championship season in 2018 and will defend his title in the ARP Lightweight Super Stock division against 17 other entrants in the class.  The roster has a mix of familiar faces and new ones also, with some past competitors returning to battle in 2019; the clash for this title should be tremendous!

The legend of Don Masterson continues in 2019 as he defends his FASS Pro Stock title on the Tinker Toy Deere.  This year Don will be sharing seat time with Dennis Miller, no stranger to the seat of the big green machine based in Grandview, Indiana.  Twenty-three pullers from seven states make up the pre-committed roster, each one capable of the win in the Pro Pulling League's most powerful diesel division. 

The Mini-Rod class has thirteen entrants set to entertain in one of pulling's most exciting classes.  Richard Peters and the Buckeye Special defend their 2018 title, squaring off with a host of Champions Tour regulars and some new faces as well.

Be sure to check back here at early and often tomorrow April 11th for the list of tractor competitors, with the truck list coming your way on the 12th!
