Old tractor rodeo

Tuesday, October 2, 2012

Bob Brown of Trenton, Nebraska, tries a second time to back his tractor and trailer around -- not over -- a barrel in the backing contest of the first-ever Stratton, Nebraska, Days antique tractor rodeo Saturday morning. Bill Ellis of Bartley, Nebraska, kept a close eye on his egg throughout a circle track designed with speed bumps, and Jesse Sis of Atwood, Kansas, hit a bulls-eye with a horse shoe tossed from his 930 Case during a figure-eight barrel pattern. About a dozen tractors and drivers participated in the fun, also competing in a chain drag, slow race and obstacle course. Coordinators plan a repeat next year.
