BROWNSTOWN, IN – September 16, 2019 – (Motor Sports NewsWire) – After an exceptionally competitive 2019 season, the Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League is ready to achieve its own “full pull” as the end line of the Champions Tour awaits. On Saturday, September 21, the Greene County Fairgrounds in Waynesburg, Pennsylvania, will welcome the finest tractors and trucks in the country for the Lucas Oil Mega Pull, which will provide one final showcase of pulling power for four divisions.
The Lucas Oil Mega Pull will feature the final round of action for Optima Batteries Super Modified 2WD Trucks, Mini Rods, Unlimited Super Stock Tractors, and ARP Super Stock Diesel Trucks. The championships are still on the line for each of these divisions, which have seen an array of winners in addition to some truly impressive performances.
The Champions Tour has crisscrossed the heart of the country since late April, where a total of 10 classes have provided tractor pulling fans across the U.S. with the highest level of pulling performance from the world’s finest vehicles and most talented drivers. Titles will be decided and champions will be crowned when these four classes converge on the Greene County Fairgrounds.
The OPTIMA Batteries Super Modified 2WD Trucks class has seen a total of six different winners thus far in 2019, and the championship looks like it will come down to a head-to-head battle between Southwind Dental and Sweet Revenge. Currently, just a handful of points separate these two trucks, but Southwind Dental’s consistency this season has been the difference-maker thus far. Despite having just one win, Southwind Dental has overcome the class-leading three victories by Sweet Revenge. While one of these two trucks are poised to capture the crown at season’s end, Big Ed Red, with his one win, is in position to take advantage of any missteps, sitting less than 20 points out of the lead.
Mini Rods has been arguably the most competitive class in the Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League, where four different winners have emerged over the course of four events. The top two tractors in the division, Buckeye Special and Bob Cat Jr, are separated by a small margin, while both Show No Mercy and Have No Mercy also sit within striking distance. Fittingly, these are the four winners thus far in 2019, and the only thing separating Buckeye Special from its challengers has been impressive consistency. However, given how competitive this class has been, it’s still anyone’s guess as to who will claim the championship.
The Unlimited Super Stock Tractors class has seen Armed & Dangerous International Threat make its presence felt by taking four wins this season. Those triumphs have allowed the tractor to open up a comfortable margin over the field in the championship, where Considered Armed & Dangerous HD and Extremely Armed & Dangerous have served as the primary rivals, which all come from the same stable of Mike Chizek. While this championship is by no means over, Armed & Dangerous International Threat has put serious pressure on its rivals to step up over the course of the season’s stretch run.
On the flip side, the ARP Super Stock Diesel Trucks is far from being decided as the budding rivalry between Scheid Diesel and Against the Grain is sure to continue. While Scheid Diesel has been the best performer in the division, earning four wins, Against the Grain has been right there every step of the way, including a win of its own. Just a few points sit between these trucks, while many others in the division have also made their presence felt with a total of four winners this season. This may end up being one of the tightest championship battles in all of the Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League, which should make for a stellar final event in Pennsylvania.
While the vehicles and drivers have put on a show for the fans week in and week out throughout 2019, the series sponsors of the Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League have served arguably the most important role in the championship. Significant support has come from GEICO and General Tire, who have been invaluable partners to the sport, while K&N Filters, OPTIMA Batteries, Rhino Ag, STEEL-IT, and Super Clean have all played an integral role in making each event a success. Additionally, GoPro and SRI Performance have been tremendous assets to the world’s premier tractor pulling league. Collectively, the Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League would not be able to achieve the level of success it does without the support of these sponsors, and the contributions from each of these companies has helped provide the most competitive and memorable season for the series to date.
A big thank you to all of our 2019 Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League Sponsors
