Once again Welcome to the Home of Pedal Tractor Pulling in the Missouri Basin. We are known for holding pulls from Mott ND to Columbia MO and from Grand Island NE to the Mississippi River and Beyond in each direction.
The home of Kayla Myers 2008 10 year old National Champion and two time third place finisher; and 2010 International 11 year old Runner up and two time third place finisher. Women's winner at the National Pedal Pull twice "15" & "17".
We are featured at several events through out the Midwest. Missouri State Fair; National Farm Toy Show; Pulls in Metro Omaha, and Greater Kansas City; Northeast Missouri Regional Fair; Sioux County Iowa; Westfair in Council Bluffs IA; Numerous county fairs such as: Adams, Ringgold, Union, Mills,Westfair, in Iowa and Atchison in Missouri.
We are continuing to make every effort to have a sanctioned pull in every county in Southwest Iowa. We have every border county Wayne to Fremont. Also Clarke, Union, Mills, Pottawatomie, Adams, and Adair. Then of course the pulls in Sioux and Delaware/Dubuque. We have picked 15 counties to focus on and are in 12.

We still get more requests than we can handle and are happy to help arrange pullers if we can not. We are not a wham bam group. We are very organized and hopefully smooth group. We feature as much of our family as possible. On the other hand we are no longer bringing the girls to every event as they are both in college and taking very involved degrees, while working a great number of hours at the Council Bluffs IA, Cracker Barrel Country Store. Make sure to say hi to them if you drop in during your travels through the Lake Manawa area on I-29 & I-80. Kendra pursues Early Childhood Education w/ Special Education, while Kayla continues toward a double major in Mathematics, and a Minor in Business Administration. We are proud that they will continue to give to children and families in the future.
So Now, we must assume no help other than Ken, and he can not do it all himself, although he tries.
There for all our events are expected to provide 3-4 helpers for the sled and tractors, as well as ribbons and possibly paperwork at the table.
We seriously considered stopping because of the health issues, but our event sponsors said they could help us, if we could continue. And we love the kids and families we see. So we continue on with the understanding of more than enough help. Just like Ken's back he could be fine for a pull, but then be down for the following ones, and we can not afford that so if the help is not there to keep him off the sled and tractor during the pull we can not come back, period.
We are blessed to be one of the best groups in the nation. That comes with more requests than dates. We will do our best to continue to have as many pulls as any single unit group in the country.
Our original Southwest Iowa goal was to have a sanctioned pull in every county. We currently have one in 11 of 15 counties and hope to get the other 4 soon. This should give every child in Southwest Iowa a legitimate chance for State and National.
We are excited by the metropolitan interest and growing pulls in Omaha/Council Bluffs, Greater Kansas City and St. Joseph MO.
Thank you to all who want to have events for Children and Families, Myers Pedal Tractor Pulls is going to be there for you as long as we can.

Questions often come up. What is a Pedal Tractor Pull? What is Sanctioning? and You can go to a National?
Let us say we hope we answer the last question with the page "Path to Nationals"
Sanctioning is being able to qualify children for the next level of competition
A Pedal Pull is the greatest character building, healthy, most entertaining, and full of sportsmanship activity for kids.
We have grown to the point we have to be more selective in which pulls we can except. We must have help in scheduling, helpers, and fees on time. We have a proud, though still short history. Doing Pulls from Mott, ND to Columbia MO and from Grand Island NE to Albany IL. We have overcome many obstacles to make this happen. We are proud of our eastern brothers who started and have grown quickly across Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky and Pennsylvania.

Thanks to the support and sponsorships of many outstanding states, counties, communities, companies, and individuals, we have grown beyond any forecast in the beginning. We have limited our number of pulls by keeping the family together, yet now our girls are becoming more and more in demand in numerous fields, so Willo and I or just me will be covering more pulls. Our health requires the help we ask for and must expect. We simply can not do pulls if help requested is not provided. We will be forced to drop pulls not providing as much help as asked for. We ask for 2-3 persons per sled and 2 additional if 2 lanes are used. So one sled 2-4 helpers, and two sleds 5-6 helpers. There should be a plan for one to help at the table in any case, on the chance I am on my own. Thanks.
Why don't we go to all the state pulls. Well in some cases we are covering pulls for the ones doing state and sometimes we are not needed or invited. Putting on the Missouri State is a wonderful experience and draining, so if the other states are fine, so are we. We will see you at Nationals.
God Bless our Fans for all your prayers!!
Cancers nor diabetes will hold us back from helping children and families. Great things happen when you care about children and families more than who is the biggest or makes real money. The Lord has cared for us so we can help his children through this activity.
The pink tractor in our line up is to support
women's cancer research.
I can hardly wait for someone to say they something about pink being their idea, and just for the record orange is the color of Leukemia. Health care is important, support proper health care for everyone. Until you have $125,000 a year in health cost, for drugs alone, every year and can not buy insurance you don't really understand.
