Members of Penn College’s Automotive Living-Learning Community attended the Keystone National Truck and Tractor Pull event at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg on Saturday. “Only one person had been to a similar event before, so, for the rest of us, it was a new experience,” said Eric D. Pruden, automotive instructor and LLC faculty liaison. “Lots of horsepower and driving skill was on display and not too much parts breakage. Everyone had a good time!” From left are applied management student Daniel W. DeShong, of Cochranville; and collision repair technology majors Christianna L. Andryski, of Harrisburg, Brittany A. Frey, of Forksville, and Genevieve M. Kelly, of Beverly, Massachusetts.
