Although admission to Tractor & Truck Pull entertainment comes with a price, it was free-for-all at the Butterfield Summer Sizzler!

Usually costing around $20 a ticket for admission, the Sizzler Tractor & Truck Pull was free-for-all in Butterfield on July 6th. Beginning at 5 p.m., the Pull entertained families for over four hours.

Participants came from Iowa, South Dakota, and all over Minnesota to go up against sleds, The Vault and Iron Bull.

The most anticipated class was the 9500# Hot Farm (RPM Series) as pullers competed to win a $3000 prize.

As for the trucks, engines were pushed to their limits, the announcer could “smell the transmission,” and a puller was left with a broken truck shaft.
