Texas T-Rex Team Takes a Win in Thornton

Lane Duncan piloted his 'Texas T-Rex' tractor to two great hooks in Thornton, to take the win in the LSGTPA Youth Class on Saturday.  Lane was the recipient of the 'high card' which put his machine in the first slot to pull in his class.  With the Youth Class pullers the first class, Lane was the very first tractor out of the gate at the Thornton Rodeo Arena event.  After a malfunction with the sled on the first attempt, Lane had to remain calm and managed a great pull on the first official pass down the track.

Lane returned for his second pass, and improved on the first performance to secure the victory.  Near record temperatures during the event, had the tractors and pullers alike feeling the heat, as the thermometer was well over the century mark and track temperatures soared over 120 degrees.  The Duncan Motorsports crew and 'Texas T-Rex' team were thrilled with the win, and hope to further improve on the performance.
