Spring Nationals opens pulling season
The "Crop Doctor" IH 1066 tractor owned and driven by Jon Silsby of Union City, Michigan was able to gain the first place finish in the 9300 pound Super Farm Class at the 2021 NTPA Spring Nationals Truck & Tractor Pull held March 19 and 20th.
The two day event, presented by the National Tractor Pullers Association was held at the Michiana Events Center (MEC) near Shipshewana, Indiana and became the first event of the 2021 pulling season as a result of the cancelation of the Winter Nationals event scheduled for January 8 and 9 in Cloverdale, Indiana.
Silsby's class win resulted from his out distancing second place tractor "Press On" driven by Lee Butts of Fairgrove, MI by less than a foot on the 300 foot long indoor pulling tractor. Details on other classes and results at the NTPA Spring Nationals Pull can be found online at www.NTPA.com.
