The ninth annual Antique Tractor Pull that was held in Upper Stewiacke, Nova Scotia, featured a group of participants that ranged in both age and area to which they call home, according to the Truro Daily News.

Logan Chaplin, a 16-year-old resident of Upper Stewiacke, entered the event for the second year in the 4,000-pound class. He operated a 1948 John Deere M tractor and was able to finish in second place for the tractor pull.

"It's a lot of fun, especially when you get to beat the older guys," Chaplin told the news source. "You weigh the tractor with yourself on it, and then add weights to it to get it up to that weight class."

Chaplin first learned about the agricultural industry and tractor pulling from his grandfather, as the Upper Stewiacke resident has been driving the farm equipment since he was only five years old, according to the Daily News.

The event was organized by the Upper Stewiacke Volunteer Fire Department and was free to local children who wished to view the antique tractors, reported 99.5 FM Cat Country.
