The engines roar at the Nebraska State Fair Tractor Pull. In the competition, tractors pull a heavy sled along a track and offer progressively greater resistance as the competition heats up! Although the vehicles produce a great deal of noise and smoke and throw dirt everywhere, they don't actually travel very far. Pull categories include Limited Pro Stock Tractor, Super Farm Tractors, Light Super Stock Tractor, Pro Stock Tractors, Modified 4WD pickups, and Modified Tractors.
Adult Ticket $10; Child (6-12) $4; Children 5 years and under are FREE.
