About Us

Northern KY Truck Tuggers Association

Tug of war first originated by five guys from Kentucky that held their first truck tug at the Kenton Co. Fair grounds in 1986. The sport started with two single light bulbs (placed 100 ft apart), a 30 ft cable (with a red rag hanging down in the center), and their trucks to tug, you hook two trucks back to back with the cable, a flag man at each door helping you line up on the chalk line down the center of the track, then telling you to watch your light. When the light changes you "GO" and tug for 30 seconds. The winner is the guy that moved the rag on his side of the line
       Thereafter the Grant Co. Fair in KY tried this sport with about 20 trucks ready to tug. Each year the sport has grown bigger and bigger. In 1994 Warsaw, KY held their first tug of war. By 1999 we had  30+ trucks competing and many of those participants decided that the rules needed to be consistent at all events for everyone's safety and enjoyment.

       That is when we became the "Northern Kentucky Truck Tuggers Association"  (NKTTA).   In November of 2000 we held another meeting with a lawyer to become a non-profit family-oriented club. Membership dues and charging the event location for us as a club to put on an event were two procedures established at this meeting as well.  We now keep points on each truck and have an annual picnic at the end of the season to give awards.  We also do Benefit pulls for different organizations if you would like for us to do one for you please give us a call and we will be glad to help you out,  you can contact us at 859-576-7380

     We have three classes:
4x4 4200 lb.
4x4 6000 lb.
2 Wheel Drive 5500 lb.

 The club tugs all over Kentucky, Ohio, and Indiana. We have also had two indoor tug of wars.
         Thanks to all that make this sport successful!
