  • Raw power.
    That's the only way to describe the Four Wheel Drive Truck Pull event at the Wayne County Fair.
    This year, the event is slated for 7 p.m., Tuesday, Aug. 6 at the main grandstands. General admission to the fair will allow you to see this fan favorite event.
    Leeward Construction is the main event sponsor for 2013.
    "There will be a full house," said Jim Fox, entertainment chairman of the Wayne County Fair Board, noting the popularity of the event.
    There are four classes of trucks which can be entered in the competition. All entries use gasoline engines.
    There is the 7,000 pound stock class and the 6,500 pound working stock class. In both of those events, the vehicles have to be street legal, said Fox.
    The other two classes are quite different.
    Those are the 6,500 pound super street gas class and the 6,200 pound modified class.
    In those events, drivers are required to have helmet, kill switches and more in order to comply with safety regulations.
    Like all pulling events, a sled is hooked up to each vehicle and the weight moves forward as it goes down the track.
    A full pull is 300 feet, said Fox.
    He said there will likely be 50 or 60 trucks entered in the competition.
    Popular with the fans is the modified divisions, which feature trucks that produce 500 horsepower or better.
    A lot of those entrants come from out of the town, said Fox. Some of them travel the circuit in the region which features these classes of trucks.
