of the Illini Pullers team talk to public at the Engineering Open House
in Champaign this past spring. The team had the tractor on display for
the public to see and ask questions about the tractor and the club.
This year, Illini Pullers will build
their ninth tractor for the 12th annual ASABE ¼ scale
competition, held May 28 to May 31, 2009, in Peoria, Illinois.
The 2008-2009 Illini Pullers have high
expectations for the year after numerous years of being close to the
top. Last year’s performance built upon a long line of success
including two other top five performances and numerous other awards
including the X-team championship.
