Tractor Skills Details

  • We plan on featuring a complete event:

    • 2-wheel implement course

    • 4-wheel implement course

    • Short safety knowledge test

    • Tractor inspection

  • This serves as a qualifying local event for those interested in the MN State Fair Tractor Driving Contest

  • Student eligibility requirements align with MN State Fair rules

  • We will feature a division for students and a division for adults to test their skills.  Adults are exempt from the test and inspection.

  • Course layout details align as much as possible with the MN State Fair event.  Our grounds are somewhat hilly, adding an interesting twist!

Please email Jim Mesik at (or call 952-467-7145) in advance if possible so we know how many competitors to expect.  You can also email or call with any questions you may have.
