Crank Up, a show with engines, tractors and much else, has been in Pepperell every summer since 1975. Kim Spaulding, left, was one of the founders. His granddaughter and her husband, Christine and Joshua Thompson, organize the event that draws aficionados from New England and New York. The Thompson's sons, Michael on left and Nathan, really want to drive that big, red tractor.
