The Steel City Pullers host truck and tractor pulls throughout the summer at the West Alexander Fairgrounds in West Alexander, Pennsylvania. Pulls begin in May and end in October. Classes range from street stock gas to smoke belching diesels to "Run What Ya Brung" in the truck divisions. Tractor classes range from speed limit pulling for the close to stock tractors to the Open RPM, roll-cage equipped hot farm tractors. All tractors and trucks are welcome to participate. There are no restrictions in terms of when the machines were manufactured. Tractors built in the 1930s, such as the Farmall M, are prevalent at the track just as much as more modern tractors like the International 1066, John Deere 4430 and even the occasional Allis-Chalmers D-21.
Mother Nature claimed another pulling victim by causing a rain-out for our July 19 pull. Our next event is our two-day pull Aug. 23-24. August 23 is just like a regular pull, same time and everything, but the next day's festivities begin at noon instead of 2 p.m. in order to give the working guys a little more time to recuperate.
