More about the Tractor Driving Contest

Although tractors are primarily used in farm settings, the Tractor Driving Contest draws many contestants living in urban environments. Each contestant must take a written exam as well as demonstrate tractor safety and operation. The contest is designed to be a practical demonstration and an attempt has been made to simulate actual farm operating conditions. Join the fun and come on out to encourage these young people as they attempt to outdo one another in their tractor driving skills.
