What are you doing in your normal life?
Kevin Campbell: I am the owner of Chaos Fabrication LLC. A business that specialized in truck & tractor parts & fabrication. We do everything from CNC machines to make parts to an engine dyno & test track/sled for testing. What do you like to do in your free time, except Tractor Pulling?
Kevin Campbell: Outside of pulling/work, I enjoy time with my daughter and also rebuild/refurbish CNC & construction equipment. What do you like about Tractor Pulling?
Kevin Campbell: I have always liked the possibility to try new things within the sport. Competition is nice but the challenge of something new is exciting for me. What was your first Tractor Pulling event?
Kevin Campbell: I started at a local level with an antique Farmall tractor when I was 14 and could not give it up. What is your favorite Event / Pulling track?
Kevin Campbell: The event that stands out to me is the Beachpull in Putten (NL). It was my introduction to European pulling and a great start to a lot of great friendships. When and where do you have driven a Pulling Tractor for the first time?
Kevin Campbell: 1st time was locally on my first antique tractor. 1st time pulling an alky tractor testing on our home track. 1st time pulling an alky tractor on the national level was Bowling Green, Ohio (USA). What was your biggest success?
Kevin Campbell: 2012 NTPA Grand National Champion and 7 wins that year. Which Pulling classes do you like too?
Kevin Campbell: Obviously the light and heavy super stock classes but otherwise light pro stock. What was your biggest disappointment?
Kevin Campbell: I can't say that I'm disappointed by much in pulling but missing the National Farm Machinery Show because of breakage from testing would be the biggest disappointment. Which things must be changed in the future of the Tractor Pulling sport?
Kevin Campbell: Better exposure to people who do not normally see any tractor pulling to be able to grow the sport will take getting others and especially children involved What are your plans for the future in Tractor Pulling?
We work at it daily with what we do work-wise. Currently, we have a super stock diesel truck we run for testing and development of products. What was for you the most important moment in the sport?
Kevin Campbell: I don't think there has been any one thing overly important moment in pulling for me. Some of my best times pulling were getting to experience with friends. One of them was 2013  when I was able to stay in Holland for about a month and really be able to experience how others enjoy the sport. What was your favorite Pulling Tractor project in the workshop during a winter?
Kevin Campbell: We work on so many that narrowing it down is difficult But I am looking forward to engine durability testing we have coming up this winter for super stock diesel 6.7 Cummins mothers and light pro IH engines. Something you want to say? 
Kevin Campbell: This year makes 24 years in the sport and the best part is there is always something new to learn. The evolution of completion in the classes makes it interesting to see how far things get pushed. It was very interesting to see that things you thought were at their limits a few years ago is passed by and onto a new level. Thank you for your time and good luck for the furture!
