  1. We have received out new ‘tractor’ champions shirts for 2019. These shirts feature five different divisions of USA-EAST Tractors each of which excelled in the previous season. These shirts are $20.00 are will be available in all sizes – youth to triple – for the first hook of the season on May 25 at Trumbull County. Thanks to Brock Johnson for the great photos used on the shirts. Source
  2. Gregg “Whitey” Refalko and Kevin Haas from Sarver in Butler County have jumped into the semi truck pulling world in a big way with the purchase of a very stout 1989 Mack with a solid E9 Mack V-8 for power. Long standing fans of the old Pro Stock Semi division (before USA-EAST) will remember the truck as owned and operated by the Rocco Brothers from Apollo, Pennsylvania. Whitey and Kevin are now prepping the truck for the first hook of the PA POSSE season at Expo Speedway at the Trumbull County Fairgrounds in Cortland, Ohio on Saturday, May 25. Both the Big Rigs and the Posse will start thei
  3. Gregg (‘Whitey’) Refalko from Natrona Heights, PA and Kevin Haas from Sarver have acquired a new and powerful 1989 Mack with a E9 Mack V-8 under the hood. Fans will remember this truck from the old Pro Stock Semi days even before USA-EAST existed. It was owned by the Rocco Brothers from Apollo and was maintained by former Big Rigs champion, Mark Riggle. This was one of the top single charger PS Semis of that time. The truck is being prepped for the opening leg of the PA POSSE class on May 25 at Expo Speedway at the Trumbull County Fairgrounds. BOTH the Big Rigs and the Posse will open th
  4. Word out of Knox School Road near East Rochester, Ohio is that the former Lindsey Rose “Malice” Allis Chalmers has a new home for 2019. Jason Pitts from the Les Pitts team has purchased the strong running Classic Super Stock from the John Rose team. The younger Pitts previously acquired the ‘Lil’ Red Cockshutt Hot Rod V-8 from Wilber Cogan a year ago and appears to be putting together his own pulling team in the suburbs of Minerva.

  5. A BIG night at the NTPA Shipshewana National invite for 3.0 Diesel 4×4 Trucks for our USA-EAST 2018 Champion as “Causin’ Trouble” and John Humpe IV took a huge win vs. a stellar field of competitors. The Chevy/Duramax from Bloomingdale, Ohio was back on DOT rubber under NTPA rules and the truck performed flawlessly. The field will get another shot at Humpe tomorrow night at the indoor event in Indiana. File Photos by Brock. Source
  6. More news from the Keystone Nationals …. “Tragic Magic” the 1977 Ford that was the USA-EAST Champion has been sold!!! Jeff Mitchell from Salem, Ohio has sold the truck and his business (JM Pool Builders) and he and his wife have moved to North Carolina. His son, Justin, is still living in Columbiana County. Reports are that the truck is being completely re-done by the new Ohio based owners and will return to the USA-EAST Super Street GAS 4×4 class in 2019 with a new body and a new name.

  7. RJ and Brady talked to Art Forrest (“Red Fever II”) while at the Keystone Nationals in Harrisburg this week-end. Forrest is the former USA-EAST Champion in this class. Well into his seventies, Art has announced his retirement from the Hot Farm Tractor division and will now serve as crew chief for his son Randy (‘Buckin’ Binder’ – SF) and for the new IH Hot Farm tractor that his former crew chief Dave Walters from New Bethlehem will campaign in 2019. This video shows one of Art’s big wins at Lisbon, Ohio that was filmed by Brandon johnson. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iRv-zS49A84 Hot Fa

  9. Three super farm tractors that have joined with the USA-EAST combo LP/SF division for 2019 were in the top five in the 9300lb. class at the Keystone Nationals tonight in Harrisburg. A big congrats to Brad McFarland from New Wilmington, PA on his first ever win with his brand new John Deere. Second went to Dan Park’s “Saturday Night Hooker” with Jeff Solley driving and fifth place was taken by “Deere Friend” and Tim Pugliese. File photos by Brock Johnson. Source
  10. The USA-EAST Hot Rod V-8 Tractors will enjoy a tremendous $5000 point fund in 2019 thanks to a series of generous sponsors: Ponderosa Steakhouse of Carrollton; Cen.Pe.Co. Lubricants; Leppo Rents; Bee-Mac Trucking; Normandy Sea and Steak of Minerva; Hubner Chevrolet; Razor Rents and Guess Motors. This sanctioned division has thirteen hooks (11/Ohio and 2/PA) this season. The first hook is on Friday, June 7 at the Bunker Hill ‘Shoot Out’ in Beloit, Ohio. Brock got these pictures a year ago.

  11. “A Rood Awakening Revisted” has moved down the road a couple of miles for the 2019 season. The V-8 Mack has been purchased by the Guilitto Trucking Team of Ravenna, Ohio after spending the past five years in the Sanders’ Excavating garage. According to Joe Guilitto the truck will be co-driven by Joe’s son, Vinnie, and by crew chief Wayne. No decision on the name for the truck has been made at this time. The Mack is ready to debut for the new ownership team on May 25 at the EXPO Speedway at the Trumbull County Fairgrounds – the season opener for the Big Rigs. File photos by Brock Johnson.
  12. It sure does look like the Fred Sanders Team is getting ready for the start of the Big Rigs Series. This is very impressive. That is the “Silver Bullet” with the new single charger QXK-19 Cummins prepared for action. May 25 at Trumbull County Fairgrounds in Cortland, OH is the date to circle on your calendar. Source
  13. Congrats go out to Greg Young from Carrollton, Ohio and his 3.0 Dodge named the ‘Patriot”. Greg who works closely with Hunter Snyder took both sessions of the 3.0 division at the Eaton Indoor Pull in Eaton, Ohio with a pair of super runs. The truck is registered for points with the USA-EAST series for 2019. First 3.0 hook is at the EXPO Pull at the Trumbull County Fairgrounds on Saturday, May 25. Good Luck, Greg. File photo by Brock.

  14. It is with sadness that we mark the passing of Pat Counter from Kennedy, New York. Pat was 66 years old at the time of his death which was after a two year battle with cancer. Pat owned PM Counter Trucking, a log hauling business in the southern tier and campaigned with the Big Rigs Series with a 1985 Mack Superliner that as called “Just Pocket Change”. The truck sported flames at the stacks just like the Mack of JR Collins. Today the pulling truck is owned by Antrim Diesel and is called “Maximum Force”. Our sympathies to the extended family of Pat Counter. Source
  15. Two former USA-EAST “Smoker Series” champions fared quite well at the just completed NFMS event in Lousville, KY. Both qualified for Saturdays ‘Finals’ with the ‘Bootlegger’ of Jason Svonavek finishing fifth and Russ Hildenbrand’s “Loose Cannon” got ninth place. Congrats to these two strong running Deere Pro Stocks from south western Pennsylvania. File photos by Brock. Source
