Truck & Tractor Pulls

An event in Luxton will bring Sooke people into the mix

This coming weekend, big truck enthusiasts can get out to Luxton to watch this popular motorsport.

Truck and tractor pulling requires stock and modified trucks and tractors to pull a mechanical weight transfer machine, known as a “sled” along a 200 foot track.

The winner is the competitor who pulls the sled the furthest. If the sled  is pulled past the 200 foot mark it is considered a fair pull. If more than one competitor makes a full pull, the sled is reset) higher gear, more weight) until a winner is declared.

The sled consists of a wight box with a six foot diameter fir 10 feet long,  weighing 9,000 pounds, that moves from the rear of the sled to the front by a system of gear boxes.

The Truck & Tractor Pull is presented by the Morningside Group and takes place Saturday and Sunday, September 12 and 213 at the Luxton Fall Fair. The pulls start at 11 a.m. both days.

Come and see the tire change challenge, teeter-tooter challenges and the excavator challenge, all things to make small boys and big men excited. There are also truck pull classes and hidden pull distance prizes.
