Our friends at Judge Pulling Team are off to a great start in the Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League! Currently, they are tied for 3rd place in points after 2 events. One of which included their first Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League Champions tour win since 2012.
"The Judge Pulling Team went to work in the off-season to better understand their tractor and how to get the power to the ground," said team member Darrick Barga. "Going through our own data and talking with other individuals involved in the sport of truck and tractor pulling, we put together a plan. It starts with the setup. Having clean cut tires for each run, preventive maintenance, air pressure in tires, spotting the sled, and track conditions. We have control over most of the variables but one the most important, the track, we don't. We have to use it the way it is. When we go to the track, it is imperative that the tractor is ready to preform at its best."
As the season progresses, the Judge Pulling Team will look to stay near the top of the standings.
"So far, we like the results we are getting from the changes we have made. We have put some good runs on track to get our 1st Lucas Oil PPL Champions Tour win since 2012. And 2 - Top 3 finishes out of 4 events. We will continue to work hard to keep The iON Judge Next Generation on top and in the points race. It won't be easy as there are a lot of tough competitors in the modified class," Barga noted.
All American Clothing Co. is proud to see the Barga Boys and their Judge Pulling Team doing good (and looking good in USA made) as they chase a championship this season. Keep up the good work guys!
