Wylie Student Scores Tractor Pulling Championship Title

Davis Intermediate student Lane Duncan, has been crowned the 2016 Youth Class Champion, by the Lone Star Garden Tractor Pullers Association.  Duncan competes in the LSGTPA tractor pulling Youth Class, which includes competitors through 14 years of age. 

The LSGTPA pulling events feature modified garden tractors, which compete on a 200' pulling track.  Events are held throughout the state, and attract competitors from all over the country.  Ten classes of pulling machines compete at each event, and can draw 40 to 50 pulling teams.  Each tractor will attempt to pull an 8500 pound transfer sled, in two rounds of competition, with the winners determined by the distances pulled on the dirt track. 

Lane Duncan piloted two tractors in 2016, scoring a one-two finish to secure the top two spots for his team.  Duncan wheeled his #88  'Twisted Kitty' tractor to the top spot, and finished runner-up aboard his  #83 'Texas T-Rex' machine to secure his 2016 Championship title.
