Tractor or truck pulling is known as the “world’s heaviest motorsport.”The goal is for the strongest machine to be driven by the best driver.
A number of tractor-powered farm trucks and tractors can pull a heavy metal dragsled over a distance. The tractor/truck that covers the longest distance in the fastest time wins.
It’s so simple, right?
Well, at Lorah’s Truck and Tractor Pulls in Walnutport, Pennsylvania, it goes beyond just the pulls. The farm hosts pulls, junk car races, truck drag-racing, and demolition derbies.
Some real Pennsylvania country sh*t.
This past Saturday, Lorah’s farm hosted a truck drag. Competitors were split into two categories— gas and diesel.
The vast majority of racers drove trucks. One racer entered a tractor, however. But it wasn’t just any tractor.
The man brought his riding mower. Strapped with a 1100cc Suzuki engine, what might be the world’s-fastest lawnmower absolutely dusted its competition.
Everything about this move was amazing. This man showed up at a truck racing event with a lawnmower. Nobody thought he would win.
If he was smart, he wouldn’t even lead onto the custom engine. Just putting around in the dirt, slowly pulling up to the starting line and then BOOM— absolutely ZOOMING out of the gates.
To get a better idea of what a truck drag normally looks like, here is another video from Lorah’s.
If anyone has any information about Saturday’s results please let me know. Did the mower win?
