The All-Alaskan Racing Pigs are a team of eight athletes who race four-at-a-time around a 100-foot, sawdust-covered track. Each show consists of three rounds of racing, with the championship race pitting the four fastest racers from the earlier races in the show. There is also one surprise feature before the championship race. The pigs run flat track and hurdles, and take their breaks in the luxurious, air-conditioned "Piggy Penthouse". When the heat gets too much, the two-legged crew members take refuge from the sun by joining the racers in their comfortable home on wheels. The All-Alaskan Racing Pigs are licensed and routinely inspected by USDA animal welfare representatives.

The tractor is one trick ride, but can it really pull all that weight? What you can't see is the special heavy-duty gearing underneath the tractors. The only gear is low, low, low. And that is how a ten-year old pulls the distance with two hundred pounds in the sled. This is one mean machine, and the kids all get to drive it! Just for ages 4-12, pedal tractor competitors race side-by-side down a 30-foot track.

The older you are the more weight you begin with. If you "pull out", going the full 30-feet, you earn another run in the next round-this time with twice the weight! Everyone keeps going until the weight finally brings them to a halt. Every competitor goes home with a custom prize ribbon and a certificate with the weight and distance pulled. Every run gives mom and dad a great photo opportunity, or pose for a special shot by the race crew after the competition.
