2015 Banquet

      • 9/6/15 – Just a reminder, the MPA will be looking for people interested to be on the board for the Association. There are three positions open on the board. They are President, Secretary & Treasurer. There may be various class rep positions as well. If you are interested, please contact one of the board members. These positions are a great way to get involved with the organization and have a say in the running of the organization. Generally the board meets once a month in the off season to discuss issues, changes, rules & operation of the Association. Each board member (except the President) and class reps get one vote when the board votes on any issue/change. Again, please contact a board member if you are interested or if you have questions on what the position involves. Thanks.

      • 4/18/15 – Just a reminder that the Test and Tune is less than a month away. The test-n-tune will be in Radcliffe Iowa at noon on May 16th. Hope to see you all there.

Over the winter the rules were changed to require all pullers (except the Entry Level Gas & Diesel) to wear a fire suit (one piece or jacket & pants) and helmet. This is for the drivers safety as well as consistency between the classes. This is the 3rd pull of the season and we have had some leniency so far.

We apologize for not being able to run the heavy classes and appreciate everyone’s patience. Elkhart turned out to be a great show for the spectators. We look forward to going back.

      • State Center was eventually rained out. There were many that showed up, but ultimately we were unable to pull. For everyone that showed up, they will receive 10 points for both the heavy and the light classes. Thanks to all that showed up. See you all in Manson on Friday night.

The payout is sent via our bill pay service. So you will receive a check from our bank in the mail in approximately 3-5 days. Make sure you don’t throw it out with the junk mail. It will have a clear window that shows your name and address on the front of the check. Thanks to all that made it out to Cambridge. It was a good start to the season.

These are for off the street “stock” type trucks. This is meant to be an entry level class. If the MPA board feels any truck in the entry level class is performing at a level of a current MPA class, they will be asked to move up. There is also a new “Open” class. This will have trucks of various levels and tractors competing with each other. It should be a fun class.
      • The 2014 membership forms are also posted. Please note that associate members are now $60 vs. the $25. However, with this change comes a change in our contracts. Now all members, both associate and full, plus one will get into the pulls free.
