Duncan Places on Podium at Powder Creek Park

Lane Duncan was able to place his familiar 'Texas T-Rex' tractor on the podium during the 'Battle At Bonham' LSGTPA event, held in conjunction with the Bonham Heritage Day celebration in Bonham, Texas.  Lane wheeled his little red tractor into the third place position, with two good pulls in the LSGTPA Youth Class.



Lane also managed a top five finish aboard his 'Twisted Kitty' tractor, with a great Full Pull during the first round.  During a second round pull, the 2016 Championship winning tractor seemed to have suffered a rare drive train issue, which affected the machine at about half track. 




Lane and the Duncan Motorsports team will freshen up both tractors prior to the next LSGTPA event, which will be contested during the Lindsay Truck & Tractor Pull on July 21st and 22nd, near Gainesville, Texas.

Duncan Pulls To Paydirt in Greenville at Hunt County Fair

Lane Duncan turned in a great performance during the Hunt County Fair LSGTPA tractor pull in Greenville, Texas, during the opening weekend event of the fair.  Duncan was able to pilot his 'Twisted Kitty' machine to a win and a runnerup, during the Friday and Saturday night double header.  Lane would also pilot his 'Texas T-Rex' tractor to a third place podium finish, posting top five finishes aboard both tractors each night.



The LSGTPA event featured performing artist Victoria Leigh with an outstanding National Anthem performance on both nights.  Lane would finish second in the Crawford-Smith Bonus Bounty, missing the top spot by just inches.  The 'Bonus Bounty' prize would award the best finish of both nights combined, during the weekend double header. 


Lane Duncan and the entire Duncan Motorsports team would like to thank everyone involved in organizing the event, and to all of those who support his LSGTPA pulling efforts !

Duncan Pulls To Top Five Finish at Delta County Fair

Lane Duncan and his Duncan Motorsports team rolled into Cooper, Texas, with their duo of LSGTPA Youth Class pulling tractors, to do battle with teams from across the state at the Delta County Livestock Show & Fair Pull.  The Lone Star Garden Tractor Pullers Association teams were a feature event of the fair, at the Harmon Park Pulling Track in Cooper. 


Rocky and Gus Young of RY Construction prepared a great pulling track surface, on the beautiful hillside track at the historic Harmon Park.  Mikayla Stuart performed the National Anthem for the event, during opening ceremonies. 


Lane would pilot both his 'Texas T-Rex' and 'Twisted Kitty' tractors to opening round Full Pulls, on the 200 foot track.  On the second round, the track surface had begun to dry out in the sun and wind,  and was a little more challenging.  Lane would hang onto a third and fourth place position, for a top five finish on both tractors. 





Lane and crew would use an off weekend, to freshen up the tires on both tractors.  The 'Texas T-Rex' will be spinning Firestone tires at the next event at the Hunt County Fair in Greenville.  The 'Twisted Kitty' will be rolling on Hy Run tires, with a steeper lug angle for Greenville.  The Hunt County Fair event will be a double header, with pulls on Friday and Saturday nights, of April 21 and 22.

Duncan Team Whitewright Report

Well, the 2017 LSGTPA tractor pulling season is off to a start, not exactly as we had hoped for, but we are rolling nonetheless.  Our season opener appearance in Whitewright, during the Whitewright Truck & Tractor Pull, did not go as planned.  We did however, have a great time, and were excited to have been a part of a great pulling show for the fans.


Recent rains in the area, had provided for a somewhat tricky track surface for our team.  Lane would pilot both his 'Texas T-Rex' and the 'Twisted Kitty' in the LSGTPA Youth Class, and would wheel both machines in fine fashion.  First round found us catching ruts with both tractors, preventing us from making optimum passes.  Sometimes, a little luck is needed on tough track surfaces, and we somehow managed to avoid good luck with both machines ! 


Second round, we were moved to a different track, on the multiple track arena floor.  The track surface was better, but was a little stickier than what we would have liked.  The track was a hard packed clay, but was an extremely rough surface.  Our tractors perform best, on a fine sand and clay mix.  Both tractors were balanced pretty good, but our tire package may have been a little off.  We will add that info to our notebook !


After second round, we found the 'Twisted Kitty' had a needle hang open in the carburetor, causing the engine cylinder to fluid with fuel and hydraulic the engine.  Once back at the shop, we drained the fuel and oil, cleaned the carburetor, and filled the engine with fresh Rotella, Lucas Oil, and VP Race Fuel fluids.  So, both machines are now fresh and ready for the Delta County Livestock Show & Fair Pull on Saturday, April 8th. 



We are hoping for a better performance in Cooper !  We are excited to be back on the track and pulling again, with the LSGTPA teams in 2017 !
