Michigan farmer Stan Warda of Berrien Springs drove the 9,300-pound Super Farm tractor Hammerin’ Hank "into the sand pile" for a full pull.
It earned him the championship trophy for that division Feb. 16 during the National Farm Machinery Show 51st Anniversary Championship Tractor Pull at Freedom Hall in Louisville, Ky.
Warda made it into the championship by earning a third-place finish Feb. 13 in his earlier pull round. Overall, Warda's tractor outpulled 23 other entries in the 9,300-pound Super Farm division of the event, which was held over four days during the 2019 NFMS.
CELEBRATION: Stan Warda is pictured celebrating with members of his family. At left is Tommy Jackso, representing pull sponsor Syngenta, and Joe Goggins (holding trophy with Warda), who is a Kentucky State Fair Board member.
