Highbaughs have pulling in the blood

For the Highbaughs, tractor pulling isn’t just a hobby. It’s a lifestyle.

David Highbaugh was runner-up at the Kentucky Invitational Truck and Tractor Pull on Jan. 2. Although runner-up is a prestigious placement, the veteran puller had won the pull in 2013 and 2014.

David and his father, Lanny, are both from LaRue County and have been pulling competitively since 2004. For Lanny, this is his second go-round in the scene, as he also competed in the 1970s pulling four-wheel-drive trucks.
