In 2010, the Truck and Tractor pull was started by Danny Starkey and Dewey Weber to enhance the Loda Good Ole Days – an annual, summer, town-wide, weekend, get-together. The Loda Good Ole Days had a parade, a “Little Miss & Mr.” pageant, a mud volleyball tournament, and outdoor activities for kids.
The Loda Truck and Tractor Pull committee decided to add more excitement to the Good Ole Days by adding the pulls to the Good Ole Days. The Truck and Tractor Pull was an instant hit and has been a community favorite since day one! It has helped bring many new visitors to the Loda Good Ole Days and has brought the community closer together each year.
