The Speedo DirtSlinger pulled at the National Farm Machinery Show Tractor Pull on the opening night (Wednesday). Hopes were high for the kickoff to 2013, but unfortunately a good pull pull wasn't in the cards.
The DirtSlinger started down the track strong but it was short-lived. The rear passenger side engine seemed to give out, and Bill was left with a pull of only 138.00 feet. It was later discovered that an electrical glitch shut the engine off, so luckily the repairs won't be too costly.
