2018 Quyon Tractor and Truck Pull adds show & shine, kids’ fun

The 2018 Quyon Tractor and Truck Pull saw the sidelines packed as folks took the roaring engines, spewing dirt and the occasional sputtering of fumes. Pictured, Stan Davis, driving Bad Neighbor, pulls the sled nearly 260 ft.

As engines launched farm-grade machinery down a dirt track, kicking dust and spewing dark clouds, all the while hauling an enormous weight, there was no missing the return of an annual event to Quyon.
Between the sounds of revving motors, crowds, trailers and 80 modified vehicles it brings, the 2018 Quyon Tractor and Truck Pull decided it needed to do a little more, by offering more fun for kids, plus the enthusiasts of two-wheeled machines.
With the addition of two new add-ons to the day, a motorcycle show and shine as well as inflatable structures for children, the afternoon sought to bring in more visitors, according to Kerry-Lynn Campbell, one of the organizers. As the day continues to grow in popularity, they’re always looking at how they can improve, she added.
