CEN­TRE­VILLE — The Pedal Pull drew more than 60 com­peti­tors at the 2018 Queen Anne’s County Fair Tues­day evening, Aug. 7. 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 13. There was no 14- and 15-year-olds class this year. The 6- and 7-yearolds class gar­nered the most en­tries. The size of the pedal trac­tor and the amount of weight on the sled in­creased with each age group.

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. The key, he said, is to pedal straight and fast and get up some speed be­fore the weight reaches the top of the sled.

In the 8- and 9-year-olds class, Travis Turner and Ja­cob Clough tied for first place and had to com­pete in a run-off, where more weight was added to the sled bring­ing it to 100 pounds. Travis won the tie breaker and took first; Ja­cob got sec­ond.

Lo­ra­lye LaClair of Queen Anne cel­e­brated her 8th birth­day at the fair Tues­day night. While she didn’t fin­ish in the top three in her new age class, Higgs lead the crowd in singing ‘Happy Birth­day” to her be­fore she made her run.

Win­ners re­ceived cash prizes: first, $15; sec­ond, $10; and third, $5. Each 4- and 5-year-olds First place: Jack­son Clough

Sec­ond place: Luke Turner Third place: Brett Pow­ell 6- and 7-year-olds First place: Lan­den Os­born
