The Badger State Tractor Pullers classes compete during the summer of 2011.   

Badger State Tractor Pullers (BSTP) will be pulling to help find cures for children with cancer and other life-threatening diseases at the12th annual American Family Children’s Hospital benefit pull. The night of pulling offers engine revin' excitement as pullers take to the track at 6 p.m. on Saturday, June 8 in Prairie du Sac to kick off the 40th year of BSTP.

Bring the entire family to watch the state’s leading tractor pullers entertain at the Sauk Prairie FFA Alumni Park, located under the eagle water tower in the Prairie du Sac Industrial Park.

In the spirit of giving, all pullers of the Badger State Tractor Pullers Association will donate their entire purse earnings, along with admissions, raffle, food and beverage from the evening totaling $40,000 to American Family Children’s Hospital of Madison.

Jude to help find cures for children with cancer." says Greg Elsing, president of BSTP Association. "Last year we made our largest donation of $40,000 to children’s hospital and our goal is to do the same this year."
