Our History

Pullings Roots Run Deep in Winchester Virginia:  The year was 1974.  Four Wheel Drive Truck Pulling was born.

In Winchester Virginia in 1974, Hylton Clark and his FFA Chapter were trying to decide on a fund raiser.  Two of his students had been to the PA Farm Show, in Harrisonburg PA to a Tractor Pull.  They asked if the chapter could put on a pull but instead of tractors they wanted to pull their 4X4 trucks.  They built a sled that they named "Big Bertha" and with the help of Bob Smith, they held their first pull at the Stonewall Ruritan Grounds on Rt 11 North of Winchester and 4X4 Truck Pulling was born.
Winchester became know as the Four Wheel Drive Pulling Capital of the World as others joined the ranks.  Six of the original Winchester pullers formed the Shenandoah Valley Pullers Association.  They were Hylton Clark running his 1966 Chevrolet, "Dixie Digger" that later became the "Snap-on Cheverolet", Mike Omps running his "Green Machine", Willie Omps running "Bits N Peices" that later became the "Inforce", Diehl Wilson "The Virginian", Bob Minnick "Boar Hog", that later became "Small Change" and Bob Smith "Three Bears".  Hylton Clark, Mike Omps, with daughter Kelsey Omps driving are the only remaining active pullers from the original Winchester 6.
