I prefer the shorter tracks, it makes the pull go quicker.

This is one of the big reasons I'm pushing for a shorter track.

I doubt shortening the track 50 feet will save any measureable amount of fuel. If you are tractor puller I don't think you are overly concerned about saving fuel in the first place.

Abandi if you want to save time tell the club that jumping 500 pounds from class to class isn't a way to save time, this would help more than cutting 50 feet off the track, everyone else does a 1000 pounds

Amen,500 lb weight difference,1000 lb difference makes it hard for some tractors to make even 2 classes say a tractor weighs 5000lb can"t make 4500lb so pulls 5500lb works good has 500 to move around,next classs is 6500lb not enough HP to pull that class so you are helping him to decide to just stay home rather than pull one time where he has a chance and have to pay a hook fee for a class where he has no chance

At the fair pulls around here, we start at 4,500, add 1,000 for 5,500, and then add 1,500 for 7,000. I personally like a 200-250' track for pace tractors to keep things moving.
