Hothem Roars to the Top of MAVTV Unlimited Super Stock Class

Charlestown, Indiana (October 28, 2016) - The weekend of divisional meetings for the Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League begins today at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Indianapolis, Indiana and leads into a full day of meetings tomorrow as well. Tomorrow night, the class discussions are put aside for a moment of remembrance and spotlight cast upon the Champions of the Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League.

Today we focus on the last of points winners on the Champions Tour, and it is indeed a case of “last but certainly not least.” Jeff Hothem and his NAPA/Carlyle Tools Fully Loaded John Deere had already taken center stage as the 2015 PPL Puller of the Year in Indy and in 2016 added a MAVTV Unlimited Super Stock Tractor Championship to his growing resume’ of accomplishments. Jeff scored an impressive three wins in the 2016 season that were buoyed by thirteen top five finishes. Hothem held off the charge of Aaron Hull and his effort piloting the Taking Care of Business John Deere of Joe Kwiatkowski, who finished twelve points back for the season.

Next week we’ll have a recap of the awards that are yet-to-be-announced, including Puller of the Year, Pull of the Year, Melba King Scholarship award winners, and the revered PPL Lifetime Achievement award. Following those accolade announcements will be a spotlight on the points champions in the Ag Protect 1 Silver Series, Wagler Competition Products Mid West Region, and the Prairie Brand Seeds Western Series.
