Duncan Pulls Out Win At Bill Halter Memorial Tractor Pull

LSGTPA teams rolled into Blue Ridge, Texas for two rounds of tractor pulling action.  Area rains had the blackland track damp underneath the hard top surface, which provided areas of great traction and a few slick spots.  Lane Duncan and his team unloaded two tractors for Youth Class competition, with the 'Texas T-Rex' pulling in the number three spot, followed by the 'Twisted Kitty' in the number five spot.

First round aboard the 'Texas T-Rex' seemed to find the team in the middle of the pack, lugging the motor just a little until the loose dirt on top allowed the wheels to spin.  Lane opened with a great pull aboard 'Twisted Kitty', to pace the field.  In the second round, the team elected to choose a lower gear, to allow the engine to pull easier on the sticky track, but the tractor pulled a little too far to the right side of the track, and found a slick spot which ended the run.  Lane took the 'Twisted Kitty' straight down the middle on a decent pull, to secure the top spot for the night.

The night ended with a First Place finish for the 'Twisted Kitty' tractor, and a Sixth Place scoring for the 'Texas T-Rex'.  Both tractors loaded up under their own power, which is always a win !!

Our next event will be at the Old Town Festival in Bartlett, Texas, on September 17th !
