-A A +A
By Melissa Blankenship

The New Castle Lions Club held its 8th annual Truck and Tractor Pull this past weekend. Although poor track conditions resulted in a cancellation Friday night, Saturday night’s pull went off without a hitch. Pullers from nine states made the trip to the fairgrounds to compete in the Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League sanctioned event. The event’s coordinator, Justin Atchison, was quick to point out all those who contributed to the effort, including the New Castle Lions Club members, Nate Buckler, Steve Davie, Camie Hagan and Michael Douglas.
