Lone Star Garden Tractor Pullers Association teams rolled into Blue Ridge, Texas for the eighth stop of the LSGTPA 2017 Championship Series.  Teams from across the state converged on the blackland prairie town, to battle for class titles in two rounds of exciting tractor pulling action. 

Originally named Pull 'N Tug until 1860, Blue Ridge is home to the 16th Texas Cavalry, the Blue Ridge Tigers, and Cattlemans CafĂ©.  The blackland prairie surface made for a very tricky track surface for the LSGTPA pull and tug competition, as pulling teams found plenty of traction during the opening round.  The very well prepared track had sufficient moisture, to provide a very sticky surface, which allowed pullers to put down as much power as they could, with some wild results.

Opening the show would be the LSGTPA Youth Class competitors.  Lane Duncan would pilot his 'Twisted Kitty' into the top spot with the victory.  Brandon Stewart would steer the 'Yes Deere' tractor to the runnerup position, with Lane Duncan wheeling his 'Texas T-Rex' tractor onto the podium in third.  Jared Stephan would ride his 'Iron Head' machine into the fourth place position for the Moody Pulling Team.  Rinn Mayberry would debut his new tractor, pulling to a top five finish.  Kaden Wilbur would post a sixth place finish aboard his 'Ugly Duckling' tractor, with Noah Moody pulling to a seventh place finish.  Seth Wilbur would post an eighth place finish in a very tough field of Youth Class pullers.


In OEM Stock Class, Kody Langham would take the victory for the Longhorn Express Pulling Team.  Claude Lewis would wheel his 'Old Yeller' tractor into the runnerup position, with Steve McCarley posting a third place podium finish.


In Hot Stock Class, Madison Bowerman would use two great passes to place her 'Instigator' tractor in the top spot.  John Aufdenkamp would wheel his Outlaw Pulling Team entry into the runnerup position, less than four feet behind the leader.  Aidan Hovind would pilot his 'Yes Deere' tractor into the third place position for the Mean Green Pulling Team camp.  Kody Langham would place his Bonham Service Center entry into the fourth place position on the night. 


Stock Diesel Class action would see Patrick Bramlett taking the title, aboard his 'Warthog' machine.  The A-10 Thunderbolt themed tractor would use a Full Pull in the final round, to seal the win.  Aidan Hovind would place his 'Buck Shot' diesel tractor, into the runnerup position in the smoker class.  In Big Stock, Patrick Bramlett would double up on the night, placing his 'A Muck' tractor in the top spot.  Jerry Toland would wheel his 'Triple Deuce' machine into the runnerup spot, with Kody Langham working his way into the third place podium position for the BSC Team.  John Aufdenkamp would place his Outlaw Pulling Team entry in fourth. 



The Stock Altered Class title would be taken by Michael Mayberry, aboard his high winding 'Pulling For Peanuts' tractor from Seguin, Texas.  In Outlaw Class competition, Paul Smith would take the class title aboard his 'Texan' tractor, from Morgans Point Resort.  Steve Pierce would take the runnerup spot, aboard his 'Buzzards Roost' machine, after suffering driveline breakage in the opening round.  Steve Hovind would debut his new 'Bad Idea' turbo diesel machine, posting a third place podium finish in the class. 


The Mini Rod Class put on a great show, with Jerry Toland taking the win aboard his 'Shinin Time' machine.  Colby Crowe would pilot his 'Weekend Warrior' tractor to the runnerup position, with two great passes on the sticky track.  David Houchen would place his 'Back In The Day' machine on the podium in third.  Sarah Crowe would wheel her turbocharged,  '99% Moody' machine, to a fourth place finish.



Super Rod Class tractors would close out a great show, with Ken Langham Sr. taking the crown aboard his 'Psycho' tractor, using two wild passes to seal the deal.  Steve McCarley made two consistent pulls to combine for the runnerup honors aboard his 'Scat Cat' machine.  Ken Langham, Jr. would score a Full Pull aboard his 'Sneaky Snake' tractor, on a great final round pull, to post a third place podium finish.  Randell Moody would place his 'Ridge Runner' tractor in fourth place for the Moody Pulling Team.  Stetson Bowerman would debut a new Chevrolet LS powered tractor, with drive train issues limiting the team to a top five finish.  John Kiemele would take a wild ride out of bounds on the tricky track surface, with the boundary infraction resulting in a DQ and a sixth place posting for his 'Dodge This' tractor. 



LSGTPA teams will check the bolts and top off the tanks in preparation for the next event, to be contested during the Old Time Saturday celebration in Farmersville, Texas on October 7th.  Visit www.lsgtpa.com for event details.

Battle At Bonham - Heritage Day Festival LSGTPA Tractor Pull Results

Battle At Bonham LSGTPA Pulling Results
by LSGTPA

Bailey Inglish constructed Fort Inglish in 1837,  to serve early settlers near the fork of Powder Creek and Bois d'Arc Creek, in present day Fannin County.  As the community grew, the town was known as Bois d' Arc.  By 1844, the towns name was changed to Bonham, in honor of James Butler Bonham.  As the 1880's rolled around, so did the Texas Pacific Railroad and the Bonham Cotton Mill industry. 


By the early 1900's, the Powder Creek Park area was a booming industrial complex.  Texas & Pacific Railroad operated a machine shop and round house facility alongside the Powder Creek, and the Bonham Cotton Mill complex operated twenty-four hours a day.  Steam engine power shook the ground next to the Bonham Depot for more than 50 years.  Most days, the Powder Creek Park is now a peaceful place.  But, on Saturday during the Bonham Heritage Day Festival, the ground would shake again as the Lone Star Garden Tractor Pullers Association teams would roll into Powder Creek Park, for the 'Battle At Bonham'. 


A two hundred foot track alongside the historic Texas & Pacific Railroad bed, just a stones throw from the old roundhouse and across from the Fannin County Museum, would be prepared for the pulling teams from across the state.  Drivers and machines would battle for class titles, in two rounds of LSGTPA tractor pulling action.  Award winning McKinney High School choir member Bailey Melvin, would deliver an outstanding National Anthem performance to start the show.


The LSGTPA Youth Class competitors would take to the track first, with Tatom Robinson wheeling his 'Little Digger' tractor to his first event win.  Cody Doyle would pilot 'Old Yeller' into the runnerup spot.  Lane Duncan would power his 'Texas T-Rex' into the third place podium position, and would wheel his 'Twisted Kitty' tractor to a fourth place finish for the Duncan Motorsports team.  Jared Stephan would steer his 'Iron Head' tractor to a top five finish for the Moody Pulling Team, and would serve as a hired gun aboard the 'Yes Deere' tractor, to score a sixth place finish for the Mean Green Pulling Team entry.


Stock Class would be paced by Claude Lewis, aboard his 'Old Yeller' machine.  Wade Robinson would score a second place finish in the class, with James Helfferich placing third on the podium.  In Hot Stock Class competition, home town favorite Kody Langham would take the victory, aboard the Longhorn Express Pulling Team entry.  John Aufdenkamp would pilot his 'Rusteze' entry to a runnerup finish, with Aidan Hovind wheeling his 'Yes Deere' machine to a third place finish.  Madison Pellerin would drive her awesome looking 'Instigator' machine, to a fourth place scoring.


In Stock Diesel, Aidan Hovind would wheel his 'Buckshot' entry into the top spot, with Ken Langham Jr. taking the runnerup position.  Gary Bramlett would pilot the 'Warthog' tractor onto the podium in third place.  Big Stock Class would see John Aufdenkamp taking the victory for the Outlaw Pulling Team.  Jerry Toland would steer his 'Triple Deuce' entry into the runnerup spot, with Gary Bramlett running his 'A Muck' tractor into the third place slot.  Jeff Robinson would ride the 'Texas Thunder' tractor to a fourth place finish on a couple of wild rides, and James Helfferich would work his way to a top five finish on the day. 


In Outlaw Class competition, Paul Smith would take the class title aboard his high winding 'Texan' tractor.  In Mini Rod Class action, Jerry Toland would wheel his alcohol injected, 'Shinin Time' tractor, into the top spot. Colby Crowe would work his 'Weekend Warrior' tractor to a runnerup finish.  David Houchen would manage a podium finish aboard his 'Back In The Day' tractor, scoring the third place position.  Steve Hovind would roll coal aboard the turbocharged diesel, '99% Moody' machine, to score a fourth place finish.  Paul Smith would return with his 'Texan' tractor, to score a top five finish in the class.


Super Rod Class tractors would close the show, with Ken Langham using a final round Full Pull aboard his Ford powered 'Sneaky Snake', to secure the class title and the first win aboard the new tractor. The driving tandem of Ken Langham, Sr. and Kolby Langham would pilot the 'Psycho' tractor to an opening round Full Pull, to secure the top two positions in the class for the Longhorn Express Pulling Team.  John Kiemele would wheel his 'Dodge This' machine into the third place position, after a wild ride in the first round resulted in an out of bounds disqualification.  Randell Moody would wheel his 'Ridge Runner' machine into the fourth place position, for the Moody Pulling Team.


The LSGTPA teams will prepare for a double header event in Lindsay, Texas on July 21st and 22nd.  Event details and pulling information can be found at www.lsgtpa.com.
