Spotlight Shines on Hart's Diesel Silver Series Pre-Commit Pullers

Sellersburg, IN (May 18, 2023) – Coming off a busy weekend at The Puller's Championship at the Track at Holzhauers and a return visit to that venue in Nashville, Illinois for the Southern Illinois Showdown presented by the Lutz Agency on June 2nd and 3rd, we highlight the Hart's Diesel Silver Series pre-commit pullers across three classes.
