10,000 lb. “HOT FARM” TRACTORS
This class is one of the new classes with USA-EAST. Tractors running in the ‘Hot Farm’ division are really the "souped up" version of farm tractors, but they run very much like their Super Farm cousins. The 2013 season was the coming out season for the class that showcased a number of very strong tractors and actually brought a field of seventeen of the machines out to a pull this summer.
‘Hot Farm’ tractors may also be tractors that are still used on the farm, but very few from this category wish to test out the strong fields of tractors at USA-EAST pulls.
For whatever reason most the heavy hitters in the class all hail from the same area in northern Lawrence County, Pennsylvania. Jeff McConnell, from Volant was the 2013 USA-EAST Champion with “Old Red” a strong running International 1466 that won more events that anyone else this summer.
The runner-up was the oldest driver in the class. Art Forrest, who has been pulling for many years got his “Red Fever II” IH 1066 into second place. Forrest comes from Sligo in Clarion County, Pennsylvania.
