The Iowa State Fair has been offering Tractor Pulling on the Fairgrounds since 1990. Tractor pulling is a competitive motor sport in which modified farm tractors, or modified tractors drag a metal sled containing a box filled with weight along a course. The tractor that pulls the sled the farthest distance is declared the winner. Known as “the world’s heaviest motorsport,” the goal of tractor pulling is to determine the strongest machine and the best driver.
