New Holland, PA – June 28, 2007 (AgNewsWire) – The one-of-a-kind New Holland compact tractor autographed by more than two dozen celebrities who competed in the popular “Michael Peterson/New Holland Celebrity Tractor Race” during the 2006 CMA Music Festival Fan Fair in Nashville is now owned by Kyle Wilson, Agro Equipment Co., Uvalde, TX. Wilson was the online auction winner for this first celebrity tractor.
Wilson likes the idea of working with a star like Michael Peterson. “I think that’s a fantastic idea. I think it’s wonderful that New Holland has teamed up with country music. That’s what most of our customers relate to and sends a very positive message out to the community of New Holland’s commitment.”
Proceeds from the auction will benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and Habitat for Humanity, the charity selected by 2006 Celebrity Tractor Race winner, country music artist Wade Hayes, who also autographed the tractor.
