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.

Spent a hot and humid Saturday in Henry, IL with my best friend and professional photographer Rodney McClanahan shooting the Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League Champions Tour event. This is the 13th annual truck & tractor pulls competition at the Marshall-Putnam Fairgrounds. The grandstands were jam packed with over 5,600 loud and energetic fans and they were not disappointed in the evenings competitors.

After losing the Missouri-Illinois Dodge Dealers 250 200 yards from the finish line at Gateway International Raceway in July, it was fitting that Brad Keselowski drove his No. 22 Penske Racing Dodge to Victory Lane on Saturday in the 5-Hour ENERGY 250. He swapped the race lead with teammate and event polesitter Justin Allgaier late in the race, but was able to pull ahead in the final six-lap stretch after a late-race caution. Allgaier, a native of Riverton, IL and a area fan favorite, finished third, while former Camping World Truck Series champion Mike Bliss took runner-up honors. Jason Leffler and three-time GIR NASCAR Nationwide Series winner Carl Edwards rounded out the top five. Despite the final straightaway bump from Edwards during the race here in July, Keselowski said in Victory Lane that he had moved on. “I try not to hold grudges. I try not to think of that and just focus on our next race. That was key about winning today. You can’t panic about what happened in the last race. You have to move forward and move on with your life. Our team did that today.”

Allgaier won the pole with a speed of 135.131 mph, circling the 1.25-mile in 33.301 seconds earlier in the day and appeared to be the class of the field during the 200-lap race. A call on pit road for four tires after the sixth and final caution, however, doomed the No. 12 Dodge team’s chances for a victory in the final NASCAR event at Gateway.
