10,000LB Super Pro Farm Tractors
These Diesel Tractors must weigh in at 10,000 pounds. This used to be the old 11,000 Super Pro Farm class, but it was decided that more tractors would participate at that requirement. These behemoths have a 540 cubic inch engine limit. They can have Intercoolers and water injection is also allowed. They are allowed 1 turbo charger with 3.0" inlet. They must have a rollbar for protection. The maximum tire width is 24.5" and rim diameter is maximum 38".
Several of these tractors flex their muscle on other stages such as the Keystone Winter Nationals (website).
Thurman Munford Sr went back to back winning points in 2016 and 2017 in the Super Pro Farm class. Thurman started out the year in winning fashion and carried it the whole year through. You could tell early he had his weight dialed in, tractor balance was darn near perfect all year. He said in an interview after a big win in Harrisonburg, "Those cowboys like to ride a bull for 8 seconds, I ride one for 20!" His personality is as big as the art work on his tractor. The tractor got a huge upgrade for 2017 with chrome wheels, clean rails, and other details you will have walk around to really appreciate. Next time you come to the track check out this vehicle a living history of pulling and enjoy a conversation with the driver as well.
Congrats to Thurman, Junior, family and crew for the good work on the Mechanical Bull in 2017.
