There’s going to be a rumble this weekend at the pulling track inside Four Oaks Farm Park.
Beginning this evening at 7, the park will host a lawn tractor and modified mini tractor pull. Dozens of participants will compete to see who can move a heavy sled the greatest distance.
But the fun doesn’t stop there — on Saturday at noon, antique farm tractors, “hot” modified tractors and gas and diesel trucks will compete in pulling the massive sled. A kiddie pull — featuring pint-sized tractor enthusiasts (ages 4-8) will also be held.
In addition to the competitions, an auction is scheduled for Saturday and concessions will also be available. The event is hosted by the Carolina Antique Tractor Pulling Association.
“We’ve been doing this for the past 10 years,” said organizer Eddie Jones, who sets up the weekend event each year with fellow pulling enthusiast, Jim Best. “We just wanted to help people in need. We give all the money away,” he added.
This year’s event proceeds will go toward helping Four Oaks Boy Scout Troop 60 go to summer camp.
Admission for Saturday’s event is $8 for adults and $3 for children 12 and younger (pre-school ages get in free). The Four Oaks Pulling Track is located at 659 Tettersville Road, Four Oaks. For more information, contact Mr. Jones at 919-669-4809 or Mr. Best at 919-796-2775. Courtesy The Daily Record
