(Words and Photos by David Whealon) Well, we’re back on our yearly stop for the “Southern Showdown” at the NC State Fair with some of the best NTPA/ UPOC pullers in the country showing up for their final exhibition of the 2023 season. The four-session, three-day event was packed slam full with competitors pulling in ten classes with two chances at the hook of go or blow nonstop action. Unfortunately Mother Nature made an appearance for the Saturday afternoon session and the schedule was modified to accommodate all the classes.
For some pullers it’s probably a good thing that they have all winter to pick up the busted parts and pieces and do what every racer is committed to do in the long offseason……get stronger for the next upcoming season. This show did not fail to disappoint any of the diehard pullin’ fans that took a break from all the excessive revelry that they experience while attending “The Fair”.
The State Fair is the perfect venue to attract new fans and give public recognition to an awesome form of motorsport that it so legitimately deserves.
