Truck tuggin' began over 20 years ago! The first truck tug of wars involved two single light bulbs (placed 100 ft apart), a 30 ft cable (with a red rag hanging down in the center), and trucks ready to tug. Things have progressed a little over the past 20 years and now this is a full blown motor sport activity that the entire family can enjoy! The whole purpose is to still hook 2 trucks bumper-to-bumper on a white line, flip the lights, and watch them go at it for 30 seconds. The winner is the competitor who pulls the other truck the farthest after time is up.
In 2005, we started the "Kentucky Truck Tuggers, Inc." (KTT INC.) which is an organized club with members and officers. KTT tugs all over the state of Kentucky at county fairs, festivals, and exhibitions.
We have three classes:
"The Light but Tough 4200 lb. Four Wheel Drives"
"The Standing Tall 5500 lb. Two Wheel Drives"
"The Big Boys 6000 lb. Four Wheel Drives"
Participants are required to become a member of KTT and must abide by the rules set by the club. They can win prize money and trophies throughout the year and the top points trucks in each class are rewarded at the end of each season at our annual banquet .
KTT thanks all those participants and fans who make this sport successful!
