There is an NADM sanctioned pull this Saturday at the Utah State Fair in Salt Lake City. Registration opens early, and closes at 12pm pull starts at 2pm. Don't be late, because they are are very picky about closing registration on time. It should be a good show, hope to see everyone able to make it show up, and make this the best show yet.:rockwoot: For info on the pull go to United Truck and Tractor Pullers
(http://www.unitedpullers.net) or PM me and I will do the best I can to get you any info needed.

From the looks of the video's, was this a short loose track with a heavy sled?

it had to be set heavy, or some of the guys would have been trying to take it to the barn...like in years past. It is a very loose track, and always has been. Its a fun event even though it is not a 300ft track. 250 is right about at the gate. Would have been nice to have you out here Scott. How did your pull turn out?

Cool, maybe next I can get out there :)

My hook at Redding wasn't good, left the hole to low on RPM's thought it would light and it did at approx 280' I should have gotten out of it and re-started, damn operator error :(

Here is my vid I broke a rear axle shaft, 18-20 sec into the vid you can see it pull me to the right so 3 wheel drive didnt work so well on a loose track with a tight sled, but it was a great turn out with close to 50 diesel trucks hooked YouTube - Matt Moon 09 SLC pull (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aHCUmeUREJ8&feature=player_profilepage#t=21)

Dude, that's a pretty decent hook for three wheels :) looks like a decent crowd as well.

the crowd at the utah state fair is always big. you pay one admission fee at the main gates and that gets you anywhere you want to go in the fair. the people down there love to see the diesels pull.

You broke an axle Matt? That sucks dude. I could of swore both sides were digging, me and a buddy were looking at the ruts from Santrol and another set, I guess from your 1st pull knowing now. At least you have awhile to fix it.

I didnt even realize I broke it untill I got home and pulled it into the garage and it didnt squeel the tires pulling in. I actually dont know when it broke but remeber it pulling me over to the right all of the sudden. After watching the vid it sure looks like thats when it broke ? I am surprised they lasted all season to tell you the truth.

Have you had a chance to check it out yet? Did it break on the end of the axle or farther inside by the splines? Post some pics up if you can.

I also wonder if the other side will have any twist in it from all the pulls it's been through.

With the season over I have run out of ambition to work on it. I will probably wait until my shop is done to tear into it since I have no room in my house garage, but I will let you know what I find and post a pic in a few weeks.
