Lane Duncan has been preparing the Texas T-Rex tractor for a 2012 return to LSGTPA pulling competition, and when the season begins, will be pulling in HD ! In 2010, the team captured on-board footage, using a Kodak digital camera with video capability. The team then acquired the GoPro video equipment for the 2011 season and captured on-board video aboard the tractor as well as the LSGTPA sled. The team will again utilize the GoPro equipment for onboard video in 2012, and has now added a pair of High Definition video cameras for filming the pulls from the finish line and trackside locations ! As we learn and improve the GoPro filming from onboard, we hope to be able to add the trackside videos of each pass to the same video posting. In this way, competitors and fans will be able to view a pull from multiple camera angles !!
We will be posting our videos of the Texas T-Rex action on our TeamTxTrex YouTube channel (see link), and will also post the LSGTPA pulling action from other tractors on the new LSGTPApulling YouTube channel. Be sure and check out these video channels and add them to your favorites !!
Rumor has it, that the first pull is already scheduled for April 21 in East Tawakoni. The event will be held in conjunction with a chili cookoff near Lake Tawakoni !
tentative pull dates are being confirmed, and appear as follows:
March 17 Test and Tune
April 21 East Tawakoni, Tx (Lake Tawakoni chili cookoff)
May 5 Bonham, Tx (Heritage Days festival)
June 8, 9 Greenville, Tx (Hunt County Fair)
