12,000LB Altered Farm Tractors
These tractors are anything but farm tractors. They must weigh in at 12,000 pounds as the name implies. An engine maximum size of 466 Cubic inch, with a 2 percent allowance for a maximum of 475 Cubic inches. Tire size will be 20.8 X 38 with with top cut only on cleat and no alterations to the front edge of cleat.
It feels like Bill Balderson had won this class 401 times before. Probably not, but his 401K goes to this "Retirement Checks" named International Harvester. Bill has been a long time puller with Dragon Motorsports and his patience pays off as he edged Tommy Eppard and his Snortin' Horse Ford by a total of 2 points.
Congrats to Bill, Wayne, family, and crew on their Altered Farm championship title.
