Kelly MarshallEvents, National Farm Machinery Show

More than 70,000 fans agree, there’s nothing like the annual Championship Tractor Pull at the National Farm Machinery Show. Coming next week, February 15-18 at the Kentucky Exposition Center, the event will showcase the nation’s top drivers competing for more than $200,000 in prizes. The competitor to beat– last year’s Grand Champion Mendi Nelson. She’s the second woman to ever win the title and she’s upping the ante, hoping to be the first woman to win back-to-back championships.

The National Farm Machinery Show is the largest indoor show in the country, and the Championship Tractor Pull isn’t the only attraction. Tyne Morgan will be taping a live “U.S. Farm Report” market roundtable on February 16th at 2:30 and free seminars with topics ranging from the market to weather strategies are scheduled the 15-17th. Admission is free and the event is open to the public from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
