These trucks have 650 cubic inch naturally aspirated engines that are capable of making in the neighborhood of 1500 horsepower. The bodies and power-trains on these trucks are mostly all aftermarket parts. Many trucks have custom fiberglass bodies and tube frames. Several of our trucks compete on the big stage, the National Tractor Pullers Association (NTPA website), and can be seen on RFD-TV Tuesdays at 6:30PM Eastern Time (check the RFD-TV schedule).
Mike Omps has been pulling since pulling it was featured on the television back in the 1980s. Mike has pulled every major venue throughout the United States. Back then it was family member/crewmate Willie Omps pushing him to go to pulls here and there. Now with daughter Kelsey Omps alongside friend Jimmy Moritz, they continue to travel the states putting the Ford up in the pack any time they sign up. Mike's reward for 2021 is consistently placing above a bunch of big names in the Modified 4x4 world. This championship signifies a return of Ford power to the top of a Chevy-dominated class.
Mike employs power from the late Sunny Leonard and his truly World-class Hemispherical engines. Congrats to Mike, crew, and everyone at Sonny's on this pulling season. Mike takes the title back to Winchester, Virginia the birthplace of Modified 4x4 Truck Pulling!
