It's a well-known fact that most people prefer to watch competition pulling trucks perform on the track than garden pulling tractors because most people can relate to trucks more than garden tractors. Therefore, we're (the Miller family) planning to include several new mini-truck pulling classes (Chevy S-10, Ford Ranger, Dodge Dakota, etc.) along with our usual garden pulling tractor classes. This line up of quality entertainment should definitely help the this association acquire a lot more quality pull-sites in Missouri because pulling trucks are money-makers for the county fairs, they draw a lot more spectators and a huge audience, while garden pulling tractors (along with small wheel mini-rods) are more or less "fill-in" entertainment that draw less spectators and a small audience, and the garden tractors make very little money for the fairs, if any at all. The spectators/audience for garden pulling tractors (and small wheel mini-rods) consist mainly of friends and family members of the pullers, members of the pulling association/club, and pullers watching other pullers compete on the track. This is based on proven fact! Not bragging or exaggerating, just stating a well known fact.

So as part of the Hot Rod Garden Tractor and Mini Truck Pullers Association, in an effort to provide more high quality and exciting entertainment at the pulls in Missouri, we'd like to include, in addition with the usual garden pulling tractor classes, two new compact/mini pulling truck classes, a 2,900 lb. and 3,800 lb. Pro Street 2WD truck class with a V8 engine and DOT / 31-15.50x15 lug tires, and perhaps a "new concept/hybrid" 2,900 lb. 4WD truck class with a 4 cylinder or V6 engine and 26-12.00x12 lug tires. It's a proven fact that garden pulling tractors alone (and sometimes with small wheel mini-rods) don't attract that big of a public spectator audience at the pulls. Pulling trucks, on the other hand, have always attracted a huge public spectator audience at all pulls because most people can relate to trucks than garden tractors. These additional classes of mini trucks may be included in the rules and at all pulls. The mini pulling trucks will be the main event. Check out our YouTube channel to see the 2,900 lb. 4WD pulling trucks (and garden pulling tractors) in action. Website Coming Soon - Learn what it takes to build a 2,900 lb. 4WD pulling truck. I'm gathering the parts to construct my own medium size self-propelled pulling sled that can handle these mini pulling trucks. These pulling trucks will be discussed, decided on and voted-in by pullers who attend the meeting at a later date to be determined. We will still use our own garden tractor sled for use of the garden pulling tractor and small wheel mini-rod classes at all pulls, too. Although we still like the garden pulling tractors and small wheel mini-rods and have nothing against these pulling vehicles, we think there's more to life than just pulling garden tractors and small wheel mini-rods. Thinking in ways of using the greatest gift this country has to offer: free enterprise, competition, the American way!


The HRGTPA is a member-owned, family-friendly event association with a private-owned self-propelled pulling sled, weighing scale, precision measuring equipment. Additional classes will be made for tractors from other associations, and the other association's sanctioning rules for the additional class(es) will be adopted by the HRGTPA.

Providing honest, quality entertainment the entire family of participants and spectators can enjoy. Within this association, all pullers will be treated fair and equal, with no corruption, no cheating, and no favoritism of any kind to any puller! Pullers always have a pleasant and relaxing atmosphere at all HRGTPA's events. When the pullers/participants have a good time and feel relaxed at the HRGTPA pulls, that's what professionalism is all about. (It's also a well-known and undeniable fact that the HRGTPA has the best pulling sled in the state of Missouri!)

FYI - Pullers are not required to pay yearly membership dues before voting changes in the HRGTPA rules. Pullers can vote changes in the rules, and if the finalized rules (and the amount of scheduled pulls) are favorable and acceptable to you, then please pay your yearly membership dues, and your entry fees at the pulls, pull your tractors and have fun. (We're not like certain other pulling associations that require pullers to pay their membership dues before they're allowed to vote changes in their rules. Then if the rules aren't in the puller's favor, and/or if the association don't have many pulls, the association has the puller's money and all the puller have are some undesirable rules to pull under and very few pulls to attend.)

HRGTPA provides $1,000,000 spectator liability insurance at all approved sanctioned pulls. Click here to read and print-out our insurance policy.

The Hot Rod Garden Tractor and Mini Truck Pullers Association and "Track Master" (the official pulling sled of the HRGTPA), are sponsored solely by A-1 Miller's Performance Enterprises, in connection with Brian Miller's Garden Tractor Pulling Tips & Tricks web sites.

Coming Soon - Detailed Illustrated Plans on How to Construct a Professional Pull-Back Garden Tractor Pulling Sled, and a Motorized/Self-Propelled Garden Tractor Pulling Sled. FYI - My professionally-built motorized/self-propelled pulling sled, Track Master, is the only one I've ever built and I got it right the first time, with very few changes that had to be made to it. I guess I'm just one of those kind of guys that knows what he's doing. Pullers really like pulling my sled, too. They say it's the best sled they've ever pulled. (Not bragging, just stating a fact.)
