Ohio State Benefit Pull
Ohio State Benefit Pull Canceled; Southern IL Showdown Features All-New Track

CHARLESTOWN, Indiana (May 29th, 2019) - For yet another weekend, weather has been an issue for the Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League to kick off the 2019 pulling season. This weekend's scheduled Champions Tour event, The Ohio State Benefit Pull at the fabled Ambassador Park in Fort Recovery, Ohio has been canceled due to wet conditions at the facility and the chance for more rain, hampering efforts in getting the grounds in good shape for the weekend.

The weekend is not a total washout for pulling however; On Saturday June 1st The Holzhauer/Lutz Agency Southern Illinois Showdown at The Track at Holzhauer in Nashville, Illinois is a go with a collection of classes from the Champion Seed Western Series and the Ag Protect 1 Midwest Region.

85 Limited Pro Stock Tractors, Light Pro Stock Tractors, Lightweight Super Stock Tractors, and Pro Modified 4WD Trucks will be running in competition for Western Series points only. Contestants in the 95 Limited Pro Stock Tractor will compete for Western Series and Midwest Region Points.

Champion Seed Western Series Director Klint Tucker commented "we are looking forward to this weekend at The Track at Holzhauer; the promoter has done a fantastic job in making the event more fan and puller-friendly with a new track and an upgraded pit area. We welcome fans and pullers for a great show there this weekend."

Gates open at the facility at 12pm CDT with first hook at 7pm CDT. The track is conveniently located just off Interstate 64 in Nashville, Illinois. Make plans to be there!
