Last Day For NFMS

LouisvilleDispatch_NFMS17_0841Today is the last day for the annual National Farm Machinery Show.  Visitors will have one final chance to see the newest and most advance equipment for all their agricultural needs before they are gone from the Kentucky Exposition Center.  Whether you are large commercial farmer or a home gardener, there will be something of interest for everyone.  With over 800 exhibitors, a crafts and gift market, and the Championship Tractor Pull, the event is expecting up to 300,000 attendees throughout the course of the show.

The final day of Championship Tractor Pull will feature two events including the 1:00 PM matinée and the 7:30 PM championship finals.  Each event is expected to last approximately three hours.  Drivers in the afternoon competition will test their machines in the classes for 7,500lb. 4×4 Super Stock Diesel Trucks, 6,400lb. Lightweight Super Stock Alcohol Tractors, and 10,200lb. Pro Stock Tractors.  The evening heats include Modified Tractors, Super Farm Tractors, 2WD Super Modified Trucks, Super Stock and Alcohol Tractors, and the massive 10,200lb. Pro Stock Tractor class.

Last night, visitors were treated to a down-to-the-wire performance as three Pro Stock tractors made a full pull of the weight sled to result in a head to head pull-off to determine the winner.  The competition is exciting and the event is loud so be sure to bring your ear protection.  This is a separate event from the admission-free Farm Machinery Show and tickets must be purchased ahead of time.  Pricing starts at $20 for the afternoon event and $25 for the evening event.  As with most events at the KY Exposition Center, parking is $8 per car.  Do not miss out on one of larger shows that comes Louisville.
