Mini tractor and truck pulling enthusiasts from across the Midwest gathered at the Iowa State Fair on Sunday, Aug. 13, for the 2017 Micro-Mini Tractor Pull competition.


The micro-mini tractors and trucks originate from an Ertl-type tractor or Tonka-style truck, fitted with a model airplane or remote control engine. The tractor or truck is also equipped with a driveline and special pulling tires.


Todd Coulter, of Story City, placed second in the 4 Pound 2-Wheel Drive competition.
