Joe Giulitto from Ravenna, Ohio thought that his 2018 season was going to start a month ago in Michigan, but his engine showed signs of metal shavings in the oil pan and had to be torn down and put back together again. He made a test run at the Bunker Hill Shoot Out in Beloit, Ohio a week ago and then brought the CAT-powered Peterbilt out to Jefferson County, Pennsylvania for the second leg of the Big Rigs Pulling Series.
‘Sneeky Pete’ was up to the task on the awesome power track in Brookville as the big machine pulled the 42000 lb. sled to over 350’ on Saturday night.
The reigning champion in the Big Rigs Series, Jerry Hairhoger from New Galilee, PA was second with a great pass on the floating finish line track. His “Jerry-Atricks” Kenworth with CAT power had taken the win a Mercer Raceway Park just three weeks before.
Third went to Rusty Bagley from Salisbury, Vermont with “Twisted Kitty” another Kenworth with single charger CAT power under the hood.
