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.
Bill Balderson and this Altered Farm class are familiar. Bill and his International called "Retirement Checks" won 4 out of 11 possible tries. It also took another shiny red tractor to really force him to get it in gear. There are several tractors running hard, that are all capable of winning. The 2023 championship might not come as easy for Bill, but it isn't 2023 yet. So, congrats Bill on your 2022 season.
Congrats to Bill, Wayne, family, and crew on their Altered Farm championship title.
