Duncan Team Battles At Bonham

Lane Duncan and his Duncan Motorsports Team rolled into Bonham, Texas for the Battle At Bonham LSGTPA tractor pull, held at Powder Creek Park.  The team returned to Bonham, having scored a win on the track during their previous visit.

With July temperatures hovering around the century mark, the track temperature was over 115 degrees, but moisture underneath the surface, provided for tricky pulling conditions.  Lane and crew unloaded both the 'Texas T-Rex' and the 'Twisted Kitty' tractors, rolling on Firestone tires for the event.  With the tricky and inconsistent surface of the 200' track, data on the new tires for the 'Twisted Kitty' would end up inconclusive.

Lane would pilot the 'Texas T-Rex' to a 155' pull in the opening round, good for a third place position.  The 'Twisted Kitty' dug in at the 111' mark in the first round.  Round two, both tractors improved, with the 'Texas T-Rex' pulling down the middle and posting a 156' pull.  Lane piloted the 'Twisted Kitty' downtrack on a better line in the second round, posting at 165' pull.    On the day, Lane would place his 'Texas T-Rex' in the runnerup spot, with 'Twisted Kitty' improving to a fourth place finish.

The team had hoped for another win and runnerup, but with challenging track conditions, a little more luck would have been necessary to improve the finish  on this day !  The team will now prepare for the two day pull at the Lindsay Truck & Tractor Pull on July 22 and 23.
