Oquawka Tractor Pull, Success

The 5th Annual West Central FFA Truck and Tractor Pull was held in Oquawka, on July 3rd, 2015.

WOW. What a turnout we had! It was our biggest crowd to date! A lot of work, from a lot of amazing people went into this event helping to make it the huge success it was.

We sold out of food (over 2200 sandwiches and over 100 cases of pop/water to be exact), raffle tickets, t shirts, koozies, etc. - which was very much appreciated!

The pullers put on an awesome show! We could not have dreamed of a better turnout for this event and we are looking forward to seeing you all back next year!
