Yeah I pulled the Amish sled lol .. What about the Home cooking in the 8200# class??

That poor boy thinks he did something... Hell I could have made a full pull too if the weight box didn't move until 3/4 track...

No the Kid with the White Dodge Flat bed . The Red Dodge was built to pull.

The First puller in the Class. Hee pulled the first time about 150' and turned it down, then immediatley pulled it out the gate.

yeah, it was ****ty to say the least. that local dodge is NOT AS TOUGH AS HE THINKS IT IS. i pulled the same blue sled ("kentucky outlaw") peice of **** back on memorial day, and it was well past 300ft. i guarantee if the sled operator would have used the same "gearing" for everyone else as he did for the white dodge, that nearly everyone there would have pulled it outta the park. the red dodge would have pulled it to the farriswheel. as i said in another post, if anyone went there because of me tellin them about it, IM SORRY! i wouldnt have told anyone if i knew they were planning on cheating. and the sled-op nearly got his *** kicked, that was one of the better parts of the pull IMO.

i talked with the sponsor. according to him, next year WILL BE DIFFERENT! the options he told me about: 1) there will be a different sled in operation. 2) there wont be a truck pull at the fair. 3) he/wildcat chevrolet will not be the sponsor at the fair. now, just gotta wait till next year to find out whats gonna happen.

i suppose all in all, it could have very well been an "accident" and he actually messed up with the gearing. but i personally dont believe it, everyone in the crowd seen it (someone had it on video), and the sled-op made himself look like an ***.

anyhow after all the DQ's were said and done. Ashley Wilson with the red dodge won that class. so, congrats to him for a job well done.

from where i was at, the ol boy had the full weight of the sled on his back at about the 200ft mark. from there, he pulled to 340 something. absolutely NO-ONE else there could have outpulled that guy, no matter what.

truth be known, i'd say that was prolly his actual pulling distance. i believe he was pulling the same "sled gearing" as you and everyone else on that particular pull. then the re-hook with a different sled-gear for a full pull.

Dude don't worry about it you didn't know. I agree it would have been a good night to see him get smacked around ..especially after his begaining speach about how everyone there was a cheater.

that was randy caldwell. owner of western ky door. he was prolly drunk, and it was also his first pull. that same truck actually won last year (with my cousin driving it). he has bought 18 new trucks from wildcat within the last year, when he gets to number 24, his next one will be free!
