Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League
Corona, CA- The 2012 Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League is preparing to make its first “full pull” of the nationwide Champions Tour’s 32-event season, debuting at the April 27th-28th Saluda Young Farmers Spring Pull in Saluda, SC.
This year, the hard-fought points battle will be waged at tracks across the country including six new venues that have been added to the 2012 schedule. The competitors in all classes will be fighting for every possible point available during the season to put them in position to take the title heading into the September 15th, Canidae Natural Pet Food Pro Pulling National Finals presented by Speedco Truck Lube and Tires at the Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, MO.
This season fans will enjoy the largest nationwide television coverage package in the history of the sport. Leading the way in national broadcasts is MATV, which will become the permanent home for the Pro Pulling League every Sunday this year at 4:00pm and 7:00pm EST, followed by NBC Sports with 4 one-hour airings, while CBS and CBS Sports will both also present an hour of intense Pro Pulling competition.
The increased live attendance, bolstered by the addition of this season’s 6 new premiere venues, now spanning 12 states and the greatly expanded 2012 television coverage would not be possible without the support of our dedicated sponsorship partners: General Tire, GEICO, E3 Spark Plugs, Speedco, Canidae, PureFlow AirDog, Optima Batteries, Magnaflow and PAC Racing Springs.
