WHAT IS TRUCK PULLING?Truck pulling is a fine mixture of horsepower, traction, and chassis setup on a 2 WD or 4 WD vehicle that is attached by a heavy chain to a weight transfer sled. The idea is that in the start of the 200' pull, the weight (any where from 14,000 LBS - 50,000 LBS) is over the wheels and axles of the transfer sled while the flat steel plate is comparatively un weighted.
The further your truck pulls the sled, the more the weight sled transfers the weight box forward, from over the axles to the steel plate. By the end of the track, even the most powerful trucks will be stopped cold by extremely large force of drag created by the awesome amount of weight bearing down upon the plate.
Some trucks will break under the pressure, and you may witness drive-shafts and axles twisting into scrap metal as man and machine go to war, just to see who can get the best hook!
It is adrenaline, testosterone, and excitement. It is a sport that can engulf the entire family, and offer fun and excitement that can be rivaled by very few.
The Cumberland County Fair Association is pleased to once again present this thrilling event at the 2017 Fair.
Bring your truck to the Fair, see if it has what it takes to be the champion.
