CENTREVILLE — The Pedal Pull drew nearly 100 com­peti­tors at the 2017 Queen Anne’s County Fair Tues­day evening, Aug. 8. Kids, di­vided by age, took turns see­ing how far they could pedal a trac­tor pulling a weighted sled in the main show ring while friends and fam­ily mem­bers cheered them on.

Par­tic­i­pants ranged in age from 4 to 15. The 8- and 9-year-olds cat­e­gory gar­nered the most en­tries with 24. The size of the pedal trac­tor and the amount of weight on the sled in­creased with each age group, with the 14- and 15-year-olds pulling 210 pounds.

An­nouncer Tommy Higgs ex­plained how the com­pe­ti­tion worked and in­vited sup­port­ers to come up and cheer on their com­peti­tor. He cheered on ev­ery par­tic­i­pant, en­cour­ag­ing them to go “just one more” time around with the ped­als.

Win­ners re­ceived cash prizes: first, $15; sec­ond, $10; and third, $5. Each com­peti­tor re­ceived a piece of candy. The pull lasted al­most two and a half hours. Win­ners are listed be­low. 4- and 5-year-olds First place: Chase Higgs Sec­ond place: Ka­cie Os­born Third place: Bai­ley Brown 6- and 7-year-olds First place: Shawn Ste­wart Sec­ond place: Pey­ton Dill Third place: Lan­den Os­born 8- and 9-year-olds First place: Ja­cob Clough Sec­ond place: Travis Turner Third place: Bryson Gue 10- and 11-year-olds First place: Law­son LaClair Sec­ond place: Dy­lan Dean Third place: Dulin Clark 12- and 13-year-olds First place: Daniel King Sec­ond place: Emily Gun­ther Third place: Tucker Brown 14- and 15-year-olds First place: Au­drey Kar­baum Sec­ond place: Eric Smith Third place: Adam Boyles
