I loaded up my Chevy Traverse with my Canon camera equipment and headed north to Henry, IL to photograph the Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League Champions Tour event. This was the 15th annual Truck & Tractor Pulls competition held at the Marshall-Putnam Fairgrounds. The grandstands were jam packed with over 5,800+ loud and energetic fans and they were not disappointed by all of the drivers who showed off their expensive big boy toys. Included in the gallery is a photo of the beautiful Lauran this years reigning Miss Marshall-Putnam Fair and Ethan & Evan who help work the back gate with their Grandpa Bud McAllister.

The Kankakee Bishop McNamara Irish (35-0) took advantage of two second-inning errors to beat the Tremont Turks (29-1), 8-2 in the IHSA Class 2A state title game on Sunday afternoon at EastSide Centre before over 1,200 fans. The lady Irish made the most of its two-out at-bats, getting half of its eight hits in a row with two outs. Successive singles by Caitlyn Delong (2-for-3, two RBIs), Alee Rashenskas (2-for-4, two RBIs), Bailee Porter (2-for-4) and Meghan Gill scored runs. Senior Jaelen Hull (28-0) scattered three hits including singles to Kennedy Runyon and Jill Runyon, had three strikeouts, and walked none. The Turks Kali Sanders hit a long home run to left centerfield with Tanner Garey on first for her seventh home of the year. Despite down 5-2, Tremont pitcher Jaycee Craver retired 12 in a row from the last out in the second to the sixth’s first two outs. The sophomore (22-1) struck out six, walked one, and gave up eight hits.

Shot’s from walking around the fairgrounds this past weekend at The 89th annual Marshall-Putnam Fair. It brought back fond memories from when I was youngster. There were numerous things to see including Ag Displays, Antique Farm Equipment, Entertainment, Culinary & Textile Exhibits, Stump Carving, Livestock Judging and much more. I took a few snaps while walking around prior to photographing the America’s Pull Truck & Tractor Champions Tour.
