Charlestown, IN (July 28, 2020) – With adversity there often comes opportunity, and opportunity has arisen for pullers and pulling fans alike with the Illinois State Championship Pull in Freeport, Illinois on August 7th and 8th at the Stephenson County Fairgrounds.
The weekend kicks off with an antique tractor pull hosted by the Community Antique Tractor Pullers on Friday the 7th, leading into a full day of action on Saturday the 8th. Pulling on Saturday starts off with Illini State Pullers competition at 1pm CT. The evening session, beginning at 6pm CT, offers four tractor classes under Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League sanctioning. Those divisions include Pro Farm/Hot Farm, Light Limited Super Stock, Super Farm, and Super Stock/Pro Stock.
Event promoter Mark Colberg, owner of the sponsoring Colberg Hi-Performance Tractor Repair, offered: “with the cancellation of the Stephenson County Fair and the Midwest Summer Nationals we wanted to put on a pull to give our community an opportunity for entertainment and something to look forward to. Proceeds from this pull will go to help our efforts for the 2021 Midwest Summer Nationals. We’ll also have fireworks following the show on Saturday night for fans and pullers to enjoy as well.”
