A tradition of the Hamilton County 4-H Fair, the antique tractor pull was held July 21 at the pull strip on the southeast edge of the fairgrounds in Noblesville.
The host, the Central Indiana Antique Tractor & Engine Association, focused its the antique tractor pull on Ella Whistler, the student survivor of the May 25 shooting at West Middle School, naming the evening “Pulling for Ella.”
Whistler’s dad, Cory, who also emceed the event, is a longtime member of the nonprofit that works to preserve agricultural heritage in the area.
Other members of the club worked the event, carrying buckets to collect money to benefit Whistler and her family. All profits from pull, including registration fees of drivers, also were donated.
