Finley’s annual Modified Tractor Pull is revving into town this Saturday, and so are first time competitors Ray Pritchard and Damian Cairns.
Pritchard and Cairns are die hard tractor pull fans, and now they have their own ‘‘big boys toy’’ to play with.
With Pritchard at the wheel the team is looking to take it home in front of a bumper local crowd on Saturday night.
Pritchard recently purchased Bare Knuckles and is looking forward to his first competition in his hometown.
The pair will compete in the open mini modified section and are hoping to do better than last time they competed.
The Bare Knuckles team has secured some generous sponsorship and would like to thank Dempsters Seeds in Berrigan and Flippas Auto Electrical in Finley for their support.
Pritchard would also like to make a special thanks to Gordon Yelland, who has been instrumental in getting the team going.
Bare Knuckles runs on a jet engine and has over 1200 horse power. The machine originally migrated to Australia from America more than 10 years ago.
Action at Finley’s tractor pull begins from 5pm on Saturday and will run late into the night. Gates will be open from 3pm and spectators are encouraged to bring a chair.
Entry is a gold coin for children under 16 years-old, $20 for over 16s and $50 for a family.
Catering and bar facilities are available on site. The event is stricly no BYO and no glass.
