A wonderful Tribute to Frank Macko was done at the Wyoming Pull on August 29th.
Participating in the tribute was his family, Delta employees along with the SWOTPA Family and over 1000 tractor pull fans.
The tribute started out with a moment of silence in Frank’s honour followed by John MacTavish, long time announcer of SWOTPA, who spoke of special memories of Frank over the years in tractor pulling and how important ‘Family” was to Frank.
A heart-felt thank you followed from Frank’s son, Mike, on behalf of the Macko family. Red balloons representing his IH 666 tractor, Freight Train, was released into the sky with not a dry eye in the place.
This was then followed by one last pass down the track for the IH 666, Freight Train, driven by Doug Stutt, one of Freight Train’s mechanics, who pulled 318 feet – FULL PULL MACKO.
The name ‘Freight Train’ will now be retired.
One lone balloon came back and circled the grounds as if Frank was saying ‘see ya later’.
Goodbye Frank – you will certainly be missed
