May 7, 2020 Update:

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the cancellation of Ohio State Benefit Pull scheduled for June 5 & 6, 2020.  We held a meeting on May 6 to discuss our next move(s).  Due to food supply shortage we would not be able to purchase enough food for our event.  And it does not make sense to pull food from the shelves that our fans and supporters need to feed their families.  Due to the lack of clarity and communication from the State we have not received permits needed to operate our event.  We do appreciate all the fans, sponsors, and competitors that showed us their support the past month.  We will hold the Benefit Raffle on Saturday, August 1, 2020 at 8 p.m. during the Fort Recovery Grand Nationals tractor pull.  Go to OhioStatePull.com/tickets/  to purchase Raffle Tickets and see prizes.  We wish everyone a safe summer and hope next year we can enjoy this motorsport we all love, June 4 & 5, 2021.

2019 Rain Out but with help from our tremendous sponsors and Raffle we were able to donate $23,000 this past year to JDRF Southwest Ohio. That puts the total donations over $100,000 in 12 years! A Huge Thank You to all our sponsors and fans that have helped us reach this milestone.

We will see you June 4 – 5, 2021

The Barga Family wants to thank all of the sponsors, fans, pullers, volunteers, Ambassador Club, and Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League for their support for our event.  It takes a lot of people, effort, and communication to put this event together and at times it is tough but it is worth every hour of sleep lost.  We hope everyone enjoyed themselves and will continue to support us as we strive for a bigger and better tomorrow for those living with Type 1 Diabetes.


We are proud to partner with the Ambassador Club, with its rich pulling
history and professional facility. The club formed in 1971 and land was purchased for the community park. Since then they have helped with many community events. A tractor pull has taken place since 1973 with the Fort Recovery Grand Nationals every July.

Ambassador Park with 6 classes to complete on 2 tracks. 4 Champions Tour classes; Super Modified Tractors, Super Stock Diesel Trucks, Unlimited Alcohol Super Tractors, and Mini Rods.
