In 2019, the town of Lexington (Ala.) announced the return of its popular Lexington Truck and Tractor Pull at the Lexington Motorsports Park. The event was last held in 2008 and received attention from ESPN and a mention in Vogue magazine on its list of unusual places to meet men.
The Lexington Truck and Tractor Pull is a Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League event sanctioned by Mid-South Pullers Association and will have six exciting sanctioned classes each night with the stock gas trucks pulling on Friday night and stock diesel trucks pulling Saturday night after the sanctioned classes are complete. Truck and tractor pulling is the only motorsport where victory is measured by distance and is known as the world's most powerful motorsport, due to the multi-engined modified tractor pullers.
Action is set to begin at 7 p.m. both nights. Admission is $15 for 13 years old and older, $10 for children 6 to 12 years old and free admission for 5 years old and younger. Proceeds benefit the Lexington Volunteer Fire Department.
