Drawing for meet-and-greet with George Strait and KIOTI MECHRON UTV to benefit Military Warriors Support Foundation

SAN ANTONIO, T.X.— February 23, 2016—KIOTI Tractor, a division of Daedong-USA, Inc., has teamed up with longtime KIOTI dealer, Hill Country Tractor to sponsor the 34th Annual George Strait Team Roping Classic on March 11-12 in San Antonio. The event, which originally started as a small family roping gathering in 1982, has grown to attract more than 1,300 ropers from across the nation as the largest open team-roping event in the country.


As the official tractor sponsor, KIOTI and Hill Country launched a month-long promotion for a chance to win a KIOTI MECHRON® 2200PS UTV and a meet-and-greet with the “King of Country Music” himself, George Strait.
