A solid pull during the event this past Saturday.

Around 2,500 people enjoyed watching 120 pullers at the 12th Annual Mexico Young Farmers Truck and Tractor Pull on Saturday, June 10 at the Audrain County 4-H Fairgrounds.
Pullers in the nine classes entertained the crowd throughout the evening on two tracks from the XCaliber Pulling and The Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League.
The Audrain County Cattlemen worked hard to feed the crowd as they ran out of beef at around 11:45 p.m. Concessions were also served by the Mexico FFA.
The event raised around $10,000 for the scholarship fundraiser.
Promotional funding for the event was provided by the Mexico Tourism Tax.
