Tractors, NASCAR style
It’s NASCAR, but for tractors.
That’s how Cody Shay of Shannon City described his tractor pulling hobby.
“They have antique tractor pulls, where they pull out the old ones. We’re way different than that,” Shay said. “We’re a lot more horsepower, for one, so we’re spinning tires and blowing lots of smoke. Everything’s way overdone. … It’s like comparing NASCAR to the car you pulled in here. ... There’s lots more to it. Our deal is way more sophisticated."
