Who has the best pulling all terrain vehicle? Find out Thursday night, July 26 at 7:00 p.m. as the DeKalb County Fair presents for the first time the "ATV-Mini Rods-and Outlaws" pulling event at the T.C. McMillen Arena.
Jeff McMillen of the DeKalb County Fair Board said this event will include classes for local people to enter and the winners will not only take home awards, but have bragging rights for a whole year. "I really want to stress that this event was added for the local people. We have all these people around here who have four wheelers. They have side by sides, Polaris Rangers, Yamaha's, and all the other brands. They're always bragging about who has the best pulling four wheeler or side by side. We're going to give you the opportunity to have the bragging rights for the year at the DeKalb County Fair on Thursday night, July 26," said McMillen.

"We're going to have eight stock classes for 4x4's. This is just ATV's. They will be zero to 300 cc and 301 cc and up. Then we'll go to four wheel drives from zero to 300 cc, 301 to 500 cc, 501 to 700 cc, and 701 cc and up. There is a weight limit on them. Check the flyers to see what the weight limits are. We will also have one modified class where you can bring anything and race it whether it has headers or whatever, you can pull with it. We'll have one class of the side by sides. We're not going to split them into cc's we'll just run one class of the side by sides. Then classes 9-14 are a mini-rod class and an outlaw class. The outlaw class supposedly has motorcycle motors on them," he said.
