Windsor hosted its first tractor-truck pull on Sunday, raising thousands of dollars for the Windsor-Essex United Way in the process.
It was a great day to be outside, and the Ram Tough Truck Pull for United Way made for some great outdoor entertainment.
The Chrysler Foundation and United Way partnerd to hold the pull, during which participants had to tow a trailer loaded with pickup trucks.
Hundreds were out to prove their strength with each team fighting for the shortest time to pull 75,000 pounds worth of trucks 50 metres down the road.
In the end, winner LiUNA Local 625 set a time of 56.87 seconds and took home the 'Guts, Glory, Ram' Cup and other prizes.
More than $20,000 dollars was raised for a united Way initiative that aims to build stronger and safer neighbourhoods.
