TOMAH, Wis. -

One of the most recognized truck and tractor pulls in the nation kicks off in our backyard.

The annual Budweiser Dairyland Super National Truck and Tractor pull is taking place this weekend in Tomah.

Thousands of spectators are expected to take in the sights, as hundreds of competitors from across the globe are putting their engines into high gear for the various competitions.

There's even a team competing from the Netherlands. "In 2010, we left over here with a whole team and a truck and a tractor and we had a lot of fun then, and after three years, we were struggling back home, because here is more competition," said Dert Dengerenk.

In the event's 39 years, it's won "Best in the Nation" 19 times.
