Duncan Wheels Texas T-Rex to Runner-Up Finish

Lane Duncan wheeled his 'Texas T-Rex' tractor, with new wheels, to a second place finish at the Hunt County Fair LSGTPA tractor pull.  The Duncan Motorsports team chose the Greenville track to debut a new wheel and tire package on the Youth Class pulling tractor.  Searching for a better 'soft' track combination, the team ran a set of Firestone Flotation 23 series tires and Douglas aluminum wheels.  Replacing the steel wheels front and back, combined with a different sidewall on the rear tires, changed the balance of the tractor somewhat, so the team was a little off on the setup for Friday nights pull, and placed fifth in the field.  After relocating some weight Saturday, the team rebounded nicely with a better setup, to finish in the Runner-Up spot, in the Enloe Museum Youth Class.
