WATCH - How tractor pulling used to be

It was a celebration over the weekend of 60 years of Tractor Pulling at the Wyoming Fair and included a demonstration of how things used to go.  The predecessor the mechanized skids, people used to stand 10 feet apart on the track and jump on until the tractor ran out of power.  In the bigger classes they would drive a small tractor on the skid for added weight.  Take a look:
