Local business sponsors were Knight’s Automotive, Bumper to Bumper, H&W Automotive, 160 Pit Stop, Ultimate Auto Group, Main Street Muffler, Dustin’s Body Shop, JD’s Automotive Services and Kustom Paint & Body.

The truck pull held Saturday night at the Gainesville Saddle Club grounds is believed to have attracted the largest crowd in the club's history, club president Monty Hambelton told the Times Monday. 

Fifty-five trucks entered the competition staged by WW Promotions, and 750 people paid the $10 admission fee. Each competing truck had two people, adding another 110 attendees to the total. 

Hambelton also joked that as many as 100 people "probably sneaked in" without paying. He said the club hopes to host another truck pull in the future, perhaps in the spring.
