Do you love TRACTOR PULLING as much as we do? Check out our event schedule to see when we'll be in your neck of the woods, and support local tractor pullers from Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and beyond. We love what we do and it shows!
The Shenandoah Valley Tractor Pullers Association was organized in 1990 by combining three stock tractor pulling clubs; Valley Pullers, Tri-County Pullers and Sledco. In 1994, SVTPA joined the National Garden Tractor Pullers Association which helped to unify rules and safety regulations Nationwide. The club moved to the American Tractor Pulling Association in the late 90's and is now associated with the Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League.
Svtpa holds about 12 - 16 pulling events each season for non-profit organizations engaged in fund raising efforts including the State Fair of Virginia and several other county fairs. While we primarily hold pulls across Virginia, we do occasionally venture into Maryland, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and North Carolina.
Our club considers garden tractor pulling to be a family-oriented sport, with pullers as young as 8 years old. Our goal is to have clean, competitive fun while while promoting the sport, with safety always in mind. we love to put on a great show for our supporters and offer a variety of classes from Stock, Modified, Motorcycle and V8 tractors. The SVTPA owned sled "The Hammer" is licensed, inspected and insured by the North American Sled Owners Association to provide the safest environment possible for all.
All dates and times are tentative and can be changed at any time. Please check back often to keep up to date!
