Green County tractor attracts bests in pulling circuit
MONROE - Having been named Pull of the Year for six years by the Badger State Tractor Pull Association, the Green County Fall National (GCFN)Truck and Tractor Pull will again play host to some of the most talented and recognized names in the tractor and truck pulling circuit.
GCFN will draw pullers from over 10 states to the Green County Fairgrounds in Monroe from noon to about 7 p.m., Sept. 23. This event has become very popular not only for the extreme competition in a nationally favored sport, but also because the GCFN is a non-profit charitable organization that donates all proceeds back to the community.
GCFN welcomes back Madison County who will be playing from 8 p.m. to midnight, rain or shine. In case of rain for the tractor pull, tickets purchased will be honored in 2018.
More than 120 tractors and trucks are expected at the event to provide great pulling excitement.
Truck and tractor classes include Limited Pro Stock, Super Semis, Super Farm, Pro Stocks, 466 Hot Farm, Light Limited Super Stock, Unlimited Alcohol SS, 640 Pro Farm, TWD Mod Truck and 540 Limited Pro Stock.
Free parking is provided as well as camping on the grounds. There will be a $10 charge for pit area parking. No carry ins will be allowed.
Those attending will have a chance to purchase GCFN can coozies with all proceeds going to Christina Foley, 37 year old Monroe mom battling stage 3 cancer.
Ticket price of $15 will include the pull, band admission and a chance to win more than 40 prizes valued at over $10,000. Tickets purchased the day of the pull will not be entered in the drawing and the band will be an additional $5.
