T-Rex Team Wraps Up Season In Rockdale

Lane Duncan wrapped up the 2015 LSGTPA tractor pulling season for the Texas T-Rex Team in Rockdale,  Texas, during the Rockdale Fair & Rodeo Tractor Pull.  Lane pulled double duty, as the young driver piloted both his 'Texas T-Rex' tractor for his Duncan Motorsports Team, and the 'Yes Deere' tractor for the Mean Green Pulling Team camp.

Lane drove to a RunnerUp finish aboard his 'Texas T-Rex' tractor, and was able to place the 'Yes Deere' tractor in the top five, while substituting for Mason Hovind, earning 2015 Championship Points for both teams.

The event was a great pull, with lots of fans enjoying the excitement.  The event was contested on the historic Rockdale Horse Race Track.  Enloe Museum staff provided very cool trophies for the LSGTPA Youth Class drivers, which included a glass capsule of the historic race track surface !

Lane Duncan scored runnerup hardware, aboard his 'Texas T-Rex', during the LSGTPA season finale in Rockdale, Texas.

Duncan and his team will now prepare the 'Texas T-Rex' for a Christmas parade appearance or two, and will continue working on the second tractor to prepare for a two tractor assault in 2016.

Texas T-Rex Team Ready To Roll In Rockdale

Lane Duncan and his 'Texas T-Rex' are ready to roll to Rockdale, for the upcoming LSGTPA tractor pulling event at the Rockdale Fair & Rodeo.  The event has a 12noon start time, and is contested on the historic Rockdale Fair Grounds horse racing track.

Duncan and team hope to rebound from a fourth place finish at the Help-A-Child Benefit Pull in Sulphur Springs.  The 'Texas T-Rex' found the sand-clay mix track at the Parker Auction Complex, a little too slick for its liking.  The track surface was watered down, prior to first round action, and Lane and his 'T-Rex' tractor found a slick spot on the track.  The first round ended with the team in third place.   After discussing tactics, Lane elected to go for the win rather than a safe run, so the team line up along the left side of the track, hoping to find fresh and dry track.  Lane made a great run, walking the edge until nearing the end of track, where the 'T-Rex' made a quick move to the side lines.  Knowing he needed a Full Pull to secure the win, Lane stayed on the throttle until the 'T-Rex' crossed either the finish line or the side line....which ended up being the side line on this night !

The team had a great time with friends, fans and family at the Help-A-Child Benefit, and are already looking forward to returning in 2016 !
