Lane would draw for pulling order as is procedure during the LSGTPA events, and selected positions in the middle of the pack. Piloting both his 'Texas T-Rex' tractor, and his 'Twisted Kitty' machine, Lane would pull double duty in the LSGTPA Youth Class.
In the opening round, Lane would test the sticky black land track aboard his 'Texas T-Rex' tractor first. A great first hook would have 'T-Rex' just four feet behind the leader, when Lane boarded his 'Twisted Kitty' machine, and took over the lead in the first round.
Increasing moisture setup on the track in the second round, as the sun went down on a cooling Blue Ridge evening, would increase the available traction for the pullers. Lane decided to make a gearing adjustment, to try to stay ahead of the changing track conditions. The move worked very well, as the 'Twisted Kitty' would again lay down a round leading pull, and the 'T-Rex' was able to hold onto a third place podium finish, with the next best pull in the round.
Lane will tighten the bolts and top off the tanks to prepare for the next LSGTPA event, scheduled for October 7th. A feature event of the Farmersville Old Time Saturday celebration, the pull is scheduled for a 12 noon start at Rike Street Park in Farmersville.
