The rodeo ring in Spanish Fork, Utah, was full of antique tractors and used farm equipment for an annual event that took place as a celebration of the area's agricultural history, according to the Provo Daily Herald.

More than a dozen tractors, mostly John Deere models, circled the dirt track prior to the tractor pull event. The only requirement for the tractors was that they had to be vintage 1960 or older versions, reported the news source.

The tractors pulled the massive sleds around the course while onlookers were treated to fare of local food and music as part of the agricultural celebration that drew visitors from area towns to the Spanish Fork location, according to the Herald.

Though the drivers all took pride in their machines and the performance of these vehicles, the competition was friendly and there were smiles all around, reported the news source.

The Utah County Fair is held as a free event for local residents, as there is a rodeo, demolition derby, bull riding and various musical performances along with the tractor event, according to the Fair website.
