Trucks and Tractors Battle It Out August 11-12 in Lexington
Decatur, Ala. (July 5, 2023) – The high octane action and thunder of big trucks and tractors are back at Lexington Motorsports Park with the annual Lexington Truck and Tractor Pull August 11-12, 2023. The public is invited to witness two nights of exciting tractor and truck pulling, dirt throwin’ action.
Sanctioned by the Mid-South Pullers Association, the Lexington Truck and Tractor Pull brings loud powerful engines along with a whole lot of excitement to North Alabama each year. There are seven 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 known as the world's most powerful motorsport due to the multi-engine modified tractor pullers and is the only motorsport where victory is measured by distance.
Plenty of food will be available from the concession stand including the famous Lexington tractor pull hamburgers and there will be a beer garden for guests 21 years and older.
Action is set to begin at 7 p.m. Aug. 11 and 6 p.m. Aug. 12 and everyone is encouraged to bring a lawn chair. 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
In 2019, the town of Lexington (Ala.) announced the return of its popular Lexington Truck and Tractor Pull. 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 2019 Lexington Truck and Tractor Pull was voted Pull of the Year by the Mid-South Pullers Association.
The Lexington Motorsports Park is located at 123 McQuire Lane in Lexington, Ala.
