Duncan Debuts With Win At Delta County Fair

Lane Duncan pulled double duty at the Delta County Fair in Cooper, Texas, piloting two tractors in the LSGTPA Youth Class competition.  Duncan made his LSGTPA competition debut aboard his 'Twisted Kitty' tractor, with a Full Pull on the initial pass for the machine.  He would hold onto first place, and put the tractor on top of the field for the win, at the first event of the LSGTPA 2016 season.  Duncan would also pilot his 'Texas T-Rex' tractor at the event, scoring a fourth place finish after two early shutoff passes, to avoid going out of bounds.

The slightly longer wheel base on the 'Twisted Kitty' entry, seemed to like the very sticky, Rocky Young Construction prepared track at the Delta County Fair.  Plenty of traction, seemed to favor the 'Twisted Kitty', as the tractor was built with a lower center of gravity.  The 'Texas T-Rex' is a little shorter wheel base, and the weight sits a little higher, which causes some handling issues on certain tracks.  The team plans to lower some of the weight on the 'T-Rex', to keep the front end down on the tracks with more traction.

We were honored to have Shawna Spangler stop by and perform our National Anthem for event !  So excited to have Shawna as part of the show, and she did an amazing job of singing !

Lane Duncan presented Shawna Spangler with an honorary trophy, for her outstanding National Anthem performance.  The trophies were provided on behalf of the Enloe Museum, and were constructed by the Enloe Museum staff for the Youth Class competitors.

We were also honored to have Steve Mack, with Racers For Christ, stop by to visit and present our opening prayer for the event.  Racers For Christ is a national organization that supports motorsports, and is entering the second year with association with our Lone Star Garden Tractor Pullers Association.  So proud to have that organization as part of the events in 2016 !

We loaded both tractors with nothing broken !  So, we will be performing routing maintenance on both, to prepare for the Hunt County Fair double header, on April 22, 23.  Events are scheduled for a 6pm start time, on Friday and Saturday nights in Greenville, Texas.

Mark your calendars for the double header at Greenville, during the Hunt County Fair !!
