Welcome to the 2017 Rivers Point Tractor Pulling Association.
Everything is looking good for the pull. See you there.
Weather permitting our first makeup pull is Sunday, Oct 8. Spread the word. We know this is short notice. Also, We know their is rain in the forecast so if the weather is rainy check the rainout line before you head to the pull to make sure it is on. We will post updates as necessary.
We still have 2 makeup pulls to try and get in. Check back periodically to see if we have posted them. You can also watch our Facebook page and will post on Yesterday’s Tractors.
We have 5 announcements for 2017.
The 2017 Pull Dates are set. We are splitting the first pull into 2 days again this year. May 6th (3000#-4500#), May 7th (4500# & up), May 21st, June 18th, July 2 Makeup, July 16th, August 20th and Sept 17th.
We have updated the rules. Please look over all of the rules but the main change is the new rule 26. No excessive wheel cutting/cutouts.
We have changed the Max Tire Size in All Divisions except Div 0. We are now using a formula to determine the max size. (Tire Width X 2) + Tire Diameter. This way we can quickly determine the calculated number for any size rim and tire width. We have also changed Div 1 and Div Top Cut to have a Max Tire Size Calculation of 69 (15.5×38) for all weight classes.
We added a new division. We call it Division 5 – Nostalgic Pro Stock. 1970 and older, No Turbo’s, No V8’s, 8mph. Check out the Divisions page for all the information.
Registration for all weight classes 3750 and under ends at 9:40. Registration is open in all classes 4000# and up until the previous weight class begins pulling. For example, you can register for the any 5000# class in any division until the first tractor pulls in the 4500# class of any division. I know guys like to come up and try to get in that next class, but our pulls are getting longer and we need to keep things moving. This is so that we can get everyone registered, get the pull started on time and keep the pull moving at the best pace we can.
DON’T FORGET WE CUT OFF REGISTRATION BELOW 4000 AT 9:40 SO WE CAN TRY TO START THE PULL ON TIME.
HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE.
Our 2017 pull dates are:
May 6 (3000#-4500#) & May 7 (4500# and up), May 21, June 18, July 16, August 20, Sept 17.
We can’t wait to see you in 2017 so come out and have some fun.
Also remember that we need your help at the pull. We can’t do it without your help.
At almost every pull we have to beg for help. Please step up and do what you can.
Don’t forget our start time is 10am.
In an effort to get started on time please try to get signed up by 9:30.
We will cut off registration for 3000, 3250, 3500 and 3750 classes at 9:40.
Thanks for your help with this.
