The Hi-Line Antique Farmers held their 11th annual antique tractor pull, show and drive on June 25th during Bertrand Days. Sixteen drivers and riders started the day off with a 15 mile antique tractor drive poker run organized by Allen Samuelson. Ralph Stehl had the winning hand with three aces. Second place went to Virginia Kipp, and in third place was Gene Samuelson.
At 1 p.m., exhibitors had the opportunity to parade some of the 33 antique tractors on display in front of the grandstand. Following the parade, Sarah Pelton, daughter of Nye and Christy Pelton, sang our national anthem. Monte Gregg was the first puller of the afternoon and made a full pull in the the 3000# stock class with his Minneapolis Moline model BF. There were 30 hooks to the sled in the stock division, 6 hooks in the open class division, and 1 hook in the exhibition class for a total of 37 hooks. Five teams participated the the Bohemian tractor pull with Sam Siekman’s team turning in the fastest time of 13.85 seconds. Edgar Estrada’s team posted a time of 14.15 for second place. Jake Gregg’s team earned third place with a time of 16.7.
