NYTPA Event Wednesday in the Grandstand
The NYTPA event on Wednesday at 7 p.m. at the Saratoga County Fair features Super Stock Tractors and 2-Wheel Drive Trucks.
The Two-Wheel Drive class is considered the funny cars of pulling. These wheel standers run with fiberglass S-10 Chevy bodies, Dodge Dakotas, Ford Super duties and 23 Ford T-buckets. You name it and they are running it.
They are producing upwards of 2,500 horsepower, from after market engines such as a Keith Black Hemi and the Fontana Arias to more common BBF and BBC engines from Fords and Chevys. They are allowed up to 575 cubic inches and can use superchargers or turbos burning methanol for fuel. These machines all use slipper clutches with a gearbox. They have Rockwell rear ends with planetary gears. The Dick Cepeck tires can produce wheel speeds up to 80 mph. The maximum weight of the vehicle is 6,200 pounds and are allowed 15 feet from center of rear axle to furthest point forward of the cab and weight box.
The Super Stock tractor class allows four different types of tractors in the same class. Weights and regulations make this class very competitive. Super Stocks weigh 8,500 lbs and are limited to three turbo stages and 30.5 x 32 tires. The alcohol Super Stocks limit is 504 cid and weigh in at 7,500 lbs.
