[ARCHIVED] Southeast Tourism Society selects Southern Invitational as a ‘STS Top 20 Event'


Southeast Tourism Society has named Southern Invitational Truck and Tractor Pull one of the STS Top 20 Events in the Southeast for February 2018. This is a first time nomination for the event that has a long history in Murfreesboro. 

The Truck and Tractor pull has been taking place at the Tennessee Miller Coliseum since 2006. The event is produced by Southern Motorsports Promotions as an invitation only pull. In 2018, competitors traveled from Wisconsin and New York to participate in this great event. The local attendance for this indoor tractor pull is always outstanding and the community certainly sees an influx of visitors during the annual event. 

"We are thrilled to see the Truck and Tractor Pull recognized," says Barbara Wolke, Senior Vice President of the Rutherford County Convention and Visitors Bureau. "We are thankful that this event is held right here in the heart of Tennessee and look forward to many more years of great competitors visiting from around the country." 

"The Top 20 Festival and Event Program is celebrating 34 years of spotlighting the best festivals and events in the Southeast. Our goal is to provide well-deserved accolades for the dedicated event organizers and additional media exposure for their events," said Monica Smith, president and CEO of the Southeast Tourism Society. "The Southeast offers so many unique, year-round, opportunities for attendees to create memories and support an industry that is an economic generator for its community."
