The eyes of the competitive truck and tractor pulling world focus on the Audrain County Fairgrounds in Mexico Saturday, June 14.

The Mexico Young Farmers host its 9th annual Truck & Tractor Pull Saturday. Gates open at 5:30 p.m., with the pull starting at 7 p.m.

This pull is sanctioned by major truck and tractor pulling organizations in Missouri and Illinois. The pull features custom built truck and tractors competing for prizes and points that will figure in a championship to be decided at the end of the pulling season.

The event is a fund raiser for the Mexico Young Farmers, as they fund scholarships for deserving Audrain County high school students.
