Tractor Pulls.....Grand Nationls
We went to Columbus this weekend for the Grand Nationals of Kiddie Tractor pulling. It was held at the Ohio Convention Center at the Power Show Ohio. Cheyanne qualified at 8 separate pulls this year, Diesel qualified at 1. No trophy's to report, but Cheyanne did an amazing job...her personal best, I think! If Diesel would stop watching the mechanics of the tractor and sled as he is pedaling it down the track, he would probably do a lot better! LOL! He doesn't seem to want to focus on what he is doing, he just checks out the equipment behind him!
On Saturday, they both pulled in the Ohio State Pull. Neither one did too great as far as rankings. On Sunday, Diesel pulled in the Open Class pull with 160 pounds in the sled. He went 11 feet, 9 inches. He ended up 33/39. Cheyanne pulled in the National pull, trying to get one of 10 really cool trophy's. She pulled a full pull (along with 24 others) with 200 pounds in the sled. In the pull-off, she pulled 300 pounds 14 feet, 8 inches. her ranking was 23/41. Not bad for one of only a few girls! She was so excited when she realized she pulled a 'daddy' in her sled! (Shawn told her that it was like pulling him! 300 pounds=one of daddy) She thought that was cool. Anyways, it's the end of the pulling year now, and Cheyanne has added 8 trophy's to her collection. She was more excited about her new John Deere hat with flames that Daddy bought her than anything!
