Races through the course

Glenford’s Kyle Speakman flies over the final ramp, during the Rough Truck and Car Contest at the Perry County Fair last year. He finished the first round of the course in 30 seconds. The arena was packed on the third night at the Perry County Fair July 18 as attendees crowded in to watch the Rough Truck and Car Contest.

NEW LEXINGTON — Sports are in a break right now, but some farming sports are taking place as the Perry County Fairgrounds.

The Lumberjack show is scheduled to preform each night at 9 p.m. for guests to watch the thrills and chills of chainsaw carving and axe chopping.

Tonight, the fairgrounds will roar after the Lumberjack show with the Rough Truck and Car Contest echoing the engine rumbles in the Arena.

Tomorrow, at 6 p.m., smoke will engulf the air as the Garden Tractor Transfer Pull and ATV Pull take over the Arena area in contest to see who can pull the heaviest equipment the farthest.

Friday will consist of an early sporting event, the Barnyard Olympics, occurring at 1 p.m. in the Horse Arena.

The Kiddie and Senior Calf Scramble will have its competition later on in the day at 6 p.m. in the Arena.

Drag Racing will follow an hour later, leading up to another Lumberjack show.

Before the fair winds down, another tractor pull comes to the Arena, but an antique one to see if the old ones still have what it takes for competition.

At 6 p.m., a Truck and Tractor Pull will blow out eardrums as they roar to see who will take the win in their competition.

Once fair week draws to a close, which only means one thing; football season is coming closer.
