CHARLESTOWN, Indiana (April 30th, 2019) - This past weekend the pulling family lost one of their own while in attendance at the Rudy's Diesel Spring Opener in Julian, Carolina.

Shawn Embt, a crew member for the Back in Black and Just 4 Fun Super Farm pulling teams from New York, passed away suddenly after the first session of pulling at Piedmont Dragway Friday evening.

Shawn is survived by two daughters (Paytin and Korryn Embt) and a host of other family members. Funeral arrangements were unavailable at press time.

Our thoughts and condolences go out to the Embt family as well as the pulling family Shawn leaves behind.
