The Fergus Truck Show, with great anticipation, is pleased to announce that USA Pulling Inc. is coming to Canada! North America's Largest Truck Show will present the USA Pulling 'Xtreme Power Pulling Series' on July 22 and 23 at the 21st annual event.

Fergus Truck Show, President Wayne Billings said "WOW! When we decided to improve the quality of the Truck Pulls at the Show, I never expected to go to this 'Xtreme'. The caliber of these Trucks and Tractors are far greater than anything we've had at previous Shows."

The Fergus Truck Show is currently negotiating the rental of an additional 20 acres of land adjacent to the truck show home to accommodate the "Xtreme Power Pulling Series". In addition plans are under way to relocate the Pull Track and to improve the spectator viewing. Mr Billings stated "with the proposed track relocation and the grandstand seating the fans will be in total awe"!

Competitive pulling isn't just watched, it's experienced! Sight! Sound! Action! As 12,000 horsepower Trucks head for the finish line 300 feet down a specially prepared track. The competitors of the pulling muscle can weigh up to 20,000 pounds. Their wheels may churn up the track at 150 miles per hour and they can lug 60,000 pounds across a football field in 12 seconds flat!

USA Pulling Inc., Operations Director, Kurt Johnson commented "It is great to have the USA Pulling Inc. 'Xtreme Power Pulling Series' pulling on Canadian soil. I can't think of a better venue to start our Canadian expansion than at the Fergus Truck Show, North America's largest Truck Show."
