The Kiddie Tractor Pull drew approximately 70 entrants Monday, Aug. 6, at the Moniteau County Fair, where each competitor pedaled with hopes of achieving the best pull in their weight division.

Entrants competed in four weight divisions: 0-49 lbs., 50-75 lbs., 76-100 lbs., and over 100 lbs. The top three finishers (with the longest pulls) in each division were presented trophies.

Event coordinator Chuck Inglish said attendance was good at this year's Kiddie Tractor Pull and the extreme heat relented, which made for a pleasant evening for all who attended.
