Rob Miller of Clay City guns his 1952 Oliver 77 during the Antique Tractor Pull at the Clay County 4-H Fair Wednesday.

The event, in its second year at the fair, featured around 20 antique tractors (produced in 1957 or earlier) pulling weights approaching four tons, according to organizer Kevin Silvers.

Silvers pointed out that many of the tractors have been tweaked for use in the event.

"Some of these aren't quite what they were when they were plowing back in 1950," he said. "They've been juiced a tad."
