The team has a lot of work ahead, in a short amount of time, to prepare both tractors. The team has enlisted assistance from several fabulous companies, that have helped to provide products for which to assemble the 1969 Sears Suburban 12. ARP has awarded the team a supply of bolts, which will be used to assemble the tractor and engine. ARP products have been used on the 'Texas T-Rex' tractor since 2010, and have performed flawlessly. The team is excited to have ARP's continued support with the new tractor !
North Texas Speed & Machine has agreed to work with the Duncan Motorsports team, to provide machine shop services on the tractor engines. The shop has provided block machine work and crankshaft work for the Briggs Stratton engine. Fulton's Metal & Hardware has always made time to assist with our fabrication projects, and this year is no exception. Fulton's has assisted with and provided for much of the special fabrication materials, which can be seen on both the 'Texas T-Rex' and 'Twisted Kitty' tractors.
As the team prepares for the 2015 LSGTPA pulling season, we would like to thank these companies and all of the others, that are involved in supporting our tractor pulling efforts ! We are going to try and acknowledge with highlights, as the season goes on, the assistance we have received from these groups and individuals....so stay tuned !! Thanks again guys and gals....we appreciate your support !!
