With half the season completed for the Texas Truck and Tractor Pullers Association, there is still time to follow the local sod kickers to the finish line and see them compete in the championship pull in San Antonio.
There is nothing nasty about Yorktown’s Glenn Treybig as he competes in the limited modified class with ‘Mr. McNasty. Treybig missed four competition events so far and still managed to stay in fifth place. His best pull was in Columbus at 304.07 feet on the second day earning him fourth place. However, each place has different soils, compactness, and altitude. Treybig took second place with a pull of 283.11 in Reisel so anything can happen. Keep watching ‘Mr. McNasty’ as he inches forward.
Nordheim’s favorite, Clint Metting competes in the hot farm tractor with two tractors; Bull Frogg and Bull Dozzin Deere. Metting nearly takes each meet by storm with ‘Bull Frogg’ but in recent meets ‘Revvelation’ driven by a student, John Link of Herford, is hot on his tail with some surprise pulls. ‘Red Warrior Express’ driven by Randall Brockman of Blue Ridge, is on the tailgate only 23 points behind first place. The ‘Bull Frogg’ is in first with 152 points and ‘Bull Dozzin Deere’ is in third with 133 points. Revvelation is in second with 148 points. There is still a lot of pulling and this year Metting has some real competition.
Cuero’s own, Thomas Watson competes in the pro modified tractor class with ‘Circuit Overload.’ Watson has been on a roller coaster in finishing no lower than eighth place with this large class of competitors. With two second place finishes and one first place finish at Priddy he holds third place overall with 166 points, just 21 points shy of first place. Right on his tail is ‘Texas Peacemaker’ Mark Dempsy of Tolar with 165 points.
The next TTTPA is July 18, 19 at Nutty Jerry’s Outdoor Arena in Winnie. Call 409-296-2406 for details and ticket prices.
