2020 Ohio State Benefit Pull cancelled!

The Ohio State Benefit Pull in Fort Recovery, Ohio, the USA which was usually planned for the 5th and 6th of June 2020 is cancelled due to the lack of clarity and communication from the State. Due to the current health situation, the organizers of the Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League Champions Tour opener received no permits to operate the event.

Here is the official statement of the organizers:

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.
