Let the tractor games begin


Steve Kampf and Junior Scott keep the time and scores of Roger Dickman’s barrel push time. Dickman operates a 1948 8N Ford Tractor and performed well in the barrel push, finishing in less than 30 seconds. “I’ve been on a tractor for a long time,” Dickman said. “A little luck helps, too.”


Stephanie Gilbert, of Smithton, turns her 1944 Farmall left after giving up on her barrel push. Participants must push a barrel with one wheel and curve it out of the gate. “I would have been there another 30 minutes!” she said.


Stephanie Gilbert shoots toward a barrel in the tractor basketball event at the Tractor Operator Competitions at the Missouri State Fair. It was a breezy afternoon, and each participant failed to score a basket on their first and second runs. Miles Wolfe, event superintendent, moved the barrel closer for the third heat.


Miles Wolfe, event superintendent, explains the rules to the low-gear tractor race participants. Drivers were told to ride as slow as possible, and the slowest time wins the race. “You can ride the brakes,” Wolfe said. “You can do everything except get out and push the tractor.”
