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.
