Weather Forces Cancellation of Watson Diesel Michigan Nationals

CHARLESTOWN, Indiana (June 20th, 2019) - Mother Nature has won the battle once again this week, forcing the cancellation of the Watson Diesel Michigan Nationals in Marshall, Michigan, slated for June 21st and 22nd.

Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League Co-director Kristi Asher commented, "the track and grounds at the Calhoun County Fairgrounds in Marshall are already saturated with water standing in many places. With the chance of more rain for the weekend it is unfortunate that the event must be canceled. We, like many of you, are hoping for better weather in the coming days for not only pullers and pulling fans but those also affected by flooding across the Midwest."

The Champions Tour is scheduled to return to action now the weekend of July 5th and 6th, with the Wagler Diesel Competition in Lyons, Indiana on the 5th and the Southern Illinois Summer Heat in Fairfield, Illinois on the 6th.
