GREENVILLE--The Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League is proud to sanction the 5th Annual Ohio State Championship Pull presented by Bayer Crop Science on June 23 at the Great Darke County Fairgrounds in Greenville. Proceeds from this pull are donated to JDRF for all kids diagnosed with juvenile diabetes.
Gates open at 3:30 p.m. to the grandstand and pits, with the pull starting at 6:30pm. Visitors are encouraged to take the opportunity to see these awesome machines up close and talk to the drivers.
Currently slated for the fifth annual event are five PPL classes on two pulling tracks, including the E3 Super Modified tractors, MAC Trailer Unlimited Super Stocks, Optima Batteries 2WD Trucks, Premier Crop Insurance Pro Stocks and the Air Dog Hot Rod Semis.
For a third year in a row a Kiddie Tractor Pull will be held, starting at 4 p.m., for ages 4-10, with signups in front of the grandstands.
The Barga Family has been involved in tractor pulling for nearly 50 years and is very excited for another great tractor & truck pull at their new location the Great Darke County Fairgrounds. The benefit pull will continue its partnership with Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation of Greater Dayton (JDRF) by donating a portion of the proceeds to JDRF. The Barga Family has three children in one family who are diagnosed with juvenile diabetes.
“We truly believe this event is good for Darke County and most importantly JDRF,” said Ron Barga. “Thus far we have donated over $40,000 to Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, which we couldn’t have done without the support of everyone involved.”
The Barga Family greatly appreciates the large response from the local businesses that chose to help support this pull in 2012.
