Lane Duncan and his 'Texas T-Rex' Team traveled to the blackland track of Blue Ridge, Texas for the Bill Halter Memorial Tractor Pull.  The team unloaded and setup camp with family and friends, and enjoyed a great opening ceremony, featuring Bailey Melvin presenting the National Anthem.  After the call for the Youth Class, we discovered a fuel leak on the tractor, resulting in an all-hands-on-deck thrash.  Within a few minutes, we had the problem solved and had Lane and his tractor across the scales at exactly 950 pounds, ready to pull.  Lane had a decent pull in the first session, of 138', which placed him third.  We held pace with the leaders and finished in the third spot for the evening...not bad considering the competition !

Thanks to all of our friends and family, some of whom we put to work, for your support !!!  It was great to have our 'Uncle Larry' King (previous owner of the T-Rex) and aunt Donna with us.  And as always, we rely heavily on Nannie and PawPaw as our pit crew.  Congratulations to Bailey Melvin on her National Anthem performance !  We expect to hear more of this young singer in the future !  We will be preparing for the next event in Bartlett, Texas coming up September 15th, so stay tuned.
