Mitas Joins Pro Pulling League as Presenting Sponsor of Super Modified Tractor Division; Pre-commit Competitors Announced

Sellersburg, IN (May 18, 2023) – Mitas, a producer of agricultural, material handling, construction, and two-wheeler tires, joins Pro Pulling League in 2023 as the presenting sponsor of the Super Modified Tractor Division.

“Mitas is deeply involved in the sport of pulling and it’s one of the few tire producers worldwide offering competition-level tires exclusively for this sport – PowerPull 01. Their sponsorship is an awesome addition to the Pro Pulling League marketing partners,” offered Johnathan Mears, Pro Pulling League Chief Competition Officer. “Beyond their financial support of the Super Modified Tractor division, Mitas will award a set of PowerPull 01 30.5L-32 tires to the 2023 points champion of the Super Modified Tractor class as well as a set of PowerPull 01 24.5-32 tires to the 2023 points champion in Pro Stock Tractor presented by Lemke Motorsports.”

With this outstanding new partnership comes a change in the guard in the class. With Ricky Long (2022 points champion) and his brother Keith (second place in points) stepping away from the class, it opens the door for the entire thirteen tractor-field to make a title run. Two former PPL champs, Bill Leischner and Wayne Sullivan, look to return to the top spot but eleven other entries stand in their way.

The pre-commits include:
4 Aces Dave Walsh Mauston, WI Pratt Whitney JFTD12 Turbines
Dirtslinger Bill & Jed Leischner Weldon, IL Brad Anderson Engines
Dirtslinger Too Shannon Leischner & Murl Kimmel Weldon, IL BAE/Veney
