LSGTPA Tractor Pulling Teams Prepare for De Leon Peach and Melon Festival Pull

The LSGTPA tractor pulling teams are preparing for the upcoming DeLeon Peach and Melon Festival pull, scheduled for Saturday, August 9.  The action will commence at 11am, with our National Anthem presentation by Paige Williams, during opening ceremonies.  The track is located, at 195 W. Almante Avenue (DeLeon, Tx 76444).  

Several teams have used the two month break in the summer schedule, to make changes and improvements on their tractors.  Among those teams working during the break, are the crew of the Mean Green Pulling Team.  These guys have taken their tractor completely apart, for a mid-season rebuild, and will be looking to make a great return at the DeLeon Peach and Melon Festival event !

The LSGTPA 2014 Schedule is loaded with fast and furious pulling action, during the second half of the year.  The remaining schedule will include two pulls in August, and will close out with a five-in-a-row marathon, of back to back pulling action in September and October !
