2000 North Branch, MI ATPA Grand American Jordan Lustik Silver Bullet. The tractor clearly needs no introduction. This night would not be their's up against 20 other alky supers (yeah, been a minute since that happened, eh?). It would be a successful season nonetheless with a 3rd place finish in the ATPA and a National Championship Win in the NTPA.
1994 Armada Fair Dave Valentine Part Time AC D21 SS. Dave ran this Heavy Super for a handful of seasons on the MI state circuits. By the mid '90s the tractor has moved south in the state into the hands of the Diubles who renamed it Pumpkin Gone Mad. Thsi past winter it was once again for sale, but we have not heard if it has moved or not. The sale of the tractor was not the end of Dave in pulling. His daughter is married to Kenny Measel and he was involved in their efforts with Minig For Dollars. These days, you'll still find Dave at events, usually int he pits of the Capozzo's Cruel Intentions Super Farm.
Tonight for your enjoyment it's NTPA RN2 from Arcola, IN 1997 featuring SS, FWD, MOD, & TWD. Enjoy, be patient, and be safe.
1995 Enderle Pull-Off Tony Martin on the Terminator qualified as the RNIII champion and came out here in the last hook of the Pull-Off and took the win back to Iowa.
Tonight we're kicking it back to 1974 & 1975 with some film footage of Super Stocks that came my way thanks to Greg Lussetto. Do not adjust your speakers, there's no sound.
1992 Enderle Pull-Off Steve Olson from Iowa was in with the Miller High Life Express and was the defending champion of the event. He would come up short on this day. This pulling truck is frequently confused with the Penske-built replica owned by the metro-Detroit Miller beer distributor that is seen all over the tri-county area during the summer months.
UPDATE: The replica is now for sale on Facebook!
WTF is what Jim Bosch seems to be asking up there. Some nights a track serves up a curveball. Back in 2002 at Saline, MI the dirt was in the middle between a temper tantrum and hold-my-beer-and-watch-this. On this night, some of the best FWD pullers the world has ever seen could do nothing more than a basketball impression. I haven't seen anything like it confined to just one class at session before or since.
1997 NFMS and The Blagrave Bros take a tour of Freedom Hall with Red Horse.
You're bored, watch it. Dave Snyder has a pretty intense barbeque with The Legend...
