Texas T-Rex Team Returns To Roots At Enloe Christmas Parade

Lane Duncan and his 'Texas T-Rex' LSGTPA Youth Class pulling tractor returned to Enloe, Texas to participate in the annual Enloe Christmas Parade in 2015.  Enloe is the 'hometown' of the ' Texas T-Rex', as this is the community that the 1972 Sears Super Suburban garden tractor was retired.  The tractor served the community up until it was finally parked after years of service.  The owner of the tractor, Larry King, learned of the plans to compete in LSGTPA tractor pulling that Lane and father Jeff Duncan were working on.  'Uncle' Larry then offered up the garden tractor, as a donation to the project in 2008.  After a complete disassembly and rebuild of the tractor, and modifications to transform and prepare the machine for LSGTPA tractor pulling, the team made their debut in 2010. 

Each year, the 'Texas T-Rex' team participates in events in Enloe and the surrounding area of Delta County, and enjoys visiting with those who have supported the team since day one !
