Tough Luck in Louisvillle

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.
