Charlestown, IN (September 15th, 2021) – As we close in on the finale of the 2021 Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League season at the Pro Pulling Nationals in Wheatland, Missouri, the battle for class supremacy rages on across multiple classes. The Lucas Oil Mega Pull at the Greene County Fair in Waynesburg, Pennsylvania on Saturday September 18th is the final battleground for three of the four classes before Wheatland, heightening the intensity of competition ever further for this single-session event.
The Summit Racing Mini-Rod class appears to be a two-tractor race with the Green Streak-Black of Austin Boyd in the lead with a slim 8-point advantage on the Sawed-Off machine of Grayson Shelton. Shelton’s brother Reese stands 43 points out of first place on the Cuttin Up machine headed into the hook in Waynesburg.
Russ Nichols stands atop the standings of the Optima Batteries Super Modified Two Wheel Drive Truck division in the Ford Ranger-bodied One The Edge. On his heels are pullers from multi-truck team efforts that mathematically have a chance to challenge him-Chad Mayhill and the 2 Timin Ford Ranger out of the Petro Motorsports stable and defending class champion Bethany Nelson in the Sweet Revenge Chevy. Nelson’s Midnight Motorsports teammate Jeremy Nelson stands in fourth place heading into Waynesburg and seeks to shake up the order as well in his pursuit of the top spot.
Unlimited Super Stock Tractor competition has been a duel of the fuels from start to finish. Josh Blackbourn sits atop the class on the Armed and Dangerous-HD CaseIH from the Chizek stable with his father Terry Blackbourn in second on the Extremely Armed and Dangerous CaseIH. Stirring the mix is Colin Ross in third place on the diesel-powered Triple Bypass McCormick with a mathematical shot still at the title. Josh sits in fourth place on the International Threat CaseIH with potential shake up the order as well at the Lucas Oil Mega Pull.
It's a well worn term to describe what’s happening in ARP Super Stock Diesel Truck, but it’s true: it’s a Battle Royale for the finish with multiple trucks capable of picking up the 2021 points title. As the last hook for the class this season, the top five trucks are separated by fourteen points with Erik Stacey and the SmokinYa HD Chevrolet in first place and the last pull in the class deciding the champion. With that tight of a gap between the top five, the competitive spirit will be intense in Waynesburg Saturday night.
The exciting action in Waynesburg kicks off at 7pm EDT with gates open at 4pm. Admission is $25 per person; more information on the event can be found at www.greenecountyfair.org
