Recognizing those who made the Championship Tractor Pull the best pull in the country and created a community of committed fans. View the list here.
The Championship Tractor Pull is proud to have best-in-class announcers. The 2023 event includes: Dan Mayer (lead announcer), Leslie Mears, Miles Krieger, and Dave Bennett (standby).
The Championship Tractor Pull was so popular in its first year that 15 drivers signed up to compete in the inaugural pull before it was officially established.
Today the pull remains a counterpart to the much larger NFMS, but the CTP has since transformed into a premiere event of its own. Each year, a short list of pullers etch their names in history as they become part of an elite group of drivers earning a national championship title. With more than 75,000 fans packing Freedom Hall to experience five pulse-pounding performances in four days, the nation’s oldest indoor tractor pull has a vivid history to share with its loyal supporters.
Hall of Champions
In 1993, the Championship Tractor Pull's competitive format was restructured, establishing a Finals round on the last evening of the pull. Many fine drivers have since carved their names into Championship Tractor Pull history on those Saturday nights as they fought their way to the prestigious title of "Grand Champion."
The cumulative results listed below tell the whole story. It is extremely difficult — though not impossible — to repeat as a Championship Tractor Pull Grand Champion. It seems that only time will tell who the next trophy winners will be.
