Sertoma Truck Pull will offer plenty of fun

Staff reports

The track looks good at the Douglas County Fairground, where the biggest-ever annual Pro-Am Super Truck Pull is ready to roll Saturday, Aug. 26. More than 40 modified muscle trucks and tractors will compete under the flags of two separate sanctioning bodies in an event staged by Carson Valley Sertoma, keeping the whole evening alive with the roar of engines and crowds.

Club President Pat Cardinal, accompanied by Event Chairman Denny Hogan, recently accepted the keys to a new Chevy S10 pickup from Sertoman Rob Hellwinkel of Gardnerville’s C.O.D. Motors.

A lucky drawing winner will get a chance to kick the soccer ball into the S10’s bed and take it home if the ball stays in.

Gates open at 3 p.m., rain or shine, and tickets sold at the gate will be $10 for adults and $5 for youngsters. Events begin at 4 p.m. with a kiddies’ pedal-pull -and the metal just keeps getting heavier as the night rolls on with food and beverages for the whole family.

Proceeds go to charity, said Bob Cutts, Carson Valley Sertoma publicity chair.
