The Edmonson County Lions Club Fair brought good times Sept. 14 and Sept. 15 to all the residents with the return of the KTPA Truck and Tractor Pull on Friday night and the much-anticipated Demolition Derby on Saturday night.
The truck and tractor pull had been taken off the schedule in the past due to low attendance, but the drivers came out to show their stuff in three sanctioned classes this year. The attendance was still low but the club is hoping that next year there will be a bigger showing from the community.
The three classes were the 6000 LT Hot Farm Tractor class, the 2.3 Diesel Truck class, the Super Modified 4WD Truck class and one unsanctioned class which a local Tyler Wells of Brownsville competed in and received second place with his truck “Next of Kin”.
Saturday night the stands were full along with any space that was available for a chair, back of a truck or just sitting on the ground with people from all over the area watching the Demolition Derby. The cars lined up to hit each other in all-out battle royal. From mini cars to full size there was no stopping the participants from crashing into each other to see who would still be moving at the end.
