2022 Time Change - Gates Open at 4:00PM - Pull Begins at 6:00PM
The 2nd Annual Jay Fuqua/Don Head Memorial Benefit Pull and the 5th Annual PPL Southern Nationals was held August 31, 2019. The Memorial Benefit Pull was established in memory of two long-time Robertson Countians, Jay Fuqua and Don Head, both men who lost their lives to cancer.
To raise money for the American Cancer Society in their memory, the PPL Southern Nationals, and the Fuqua/Head Memorial Benefit Pull merged into one massive night of fun and action at the Robertson County Fairgrounds.
During the 2018 event, two granite plaques honoring Don and Jay were placed at the starting line and now rest in a Memorial Garden at the East end of the grandstands. This year the event raised $15,000 which was presented to the American Cancer Society/Sarah Cannon Fund.
A special thanks to the Robertson County Fair Association, for Donating the use of the Fairgrounds for the week of the event and to all our sponsors who made the event possible.
