TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV)– Thursday evening was one of the most anticipated events of the Vigo County Fair.

The annual Truck and Tractor Pull was one of the most attended events this week. The tractors and trucks pulled weighted sleds that could weigh as much as 45,000 pounds. Winners of the pull could win up to $2,000.

Competitor Tyler Hamilton said it’s something everyone needs to experience.

“Once the sun goes down it’s always a good time and something different you know? Not everybody sees this and even if you don’t ever wanna come back again, it’s something you need to see at least once,” Hamilton said.

The Vigo County Fair wraps up on July 16.
