In 2019 we’ll travel again to the legendary tractor pulling contests in Louisville. Last year Louisville celebrated it’s 50th anniversary. Reason enough to pay a visit to the Top-3 winning teams of last year. We’ll visit the Super Stock Alcohol Tractors, Armed & Dangerous (Terry and Josh Blackbourn took the first and the second position!), the Twisted Deere Team (3th place at the Super Farm Tractor Finals), the Modified Tractor of Lucas Oil Racing team (2nd place), the sensational Tinker Toy winner of the Pro Stock pulling games and the Legacy, where Team Schramek took the second place in the Super Stock division. For people who want to see a bit more of Amerika, we offer a beautiful USA tour, with visits to the Caterpillar factory, the biggest truck-stop in the world and we drive about 500 km’s along the famous Route 66.
