2013-14 Season

The 2013-14 season will kick off at the 2013 NATPA Summer Pull, which will be held in Mendon, Illinois at the Adams County Fairgrounds. The pull will take place on Saturday, July 6, 2013 at 8:30am.  All tractors must go thru tech as this begins the new season. On Friday July 5th, we will start teching tractors and have a "test and tune" pull Friday afternoon or early evening, with food available. 

Hotel information will be posted soon, as well as other misc information.  The fairgrounds is just north of Quincy, Illinois on the east side of the interstate.  Physical address of the fairgrounds is--- 1020 East 1250th Street Mendon, IL 62351.  Any questions, call Brad Begeman 217-242-4634

Hotels-Mention NATPA tractor pull when booking.  Hotel rooms in Quincy are very booked that weekend due to a large swim meet, so get your room reserved ASAP.

Just like last year, you must notify Curtis Rink by the Monday after Lincoln, NE pull what two classes you are declaring for points.  If you have not declared by 3-26-13, we will automatically declare your two lightest classes you pulled in this season.  His email is cksrink@sbcglobal.net

 

NEW HOOKING POINT RULE---many sleds have been told by their insurance companies that to remain "insured" they need to always use their "big hook".  This bigger hook is for NTPA, PPL, etc. type tractors.  This is being forced upon the sleds and thus upon NATPA and its pullers.  Your hooking point (hole) needs to be a minimum 3.25 inches long, 3 inches wide, 1 inch thick, and a maximum of 1-1.25 inches of material from the back of the hole to end of the drawbar (this allows the hook to fit freely).  Make sure your drawbar is compliant.  The board will be adding this correctiion to the general rules.

 

--RPM Monitors for Div 4/5 tractors--

** UPDATE--Div4/5 tractors should have a 3 prong female 110 outlet style plug in on back of tractor for the RPM recorder to plug into.  Wire your kit from Scheid Diesel up to the female 100 outlet.

ONLY USE ONE MAGNET ON YOUR RPM KIT (they send 2, but use only one)

To purchase an RPM monitor device for your tractor, call Scheid Diesel at 1-800-669-1934, and ask for Mike.  He is the contact person for NATPA on this.  They will ship the device to you; approximate cost is $49.55, plus shipping.

You are allowed one event without this.....the second event you attend without it, no points or distance will be recorded.  These devices will mount on your tractor and record the highest reading your engine hits going down the track.

NATPA will have 2 boxes at all events for your tractor to plug in to (ex: when kill switch is being hooked up, this will be hooked up also)
