Inside Line Promotions – KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (Sept. 10, 2019) – It looks like David and Janet Esteb have finally found the gremlins that have plagued the SawBlade.com backed pulling team.
The fix gave the team immediate results during a Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League Champions Tour event at Chillhowee Park last Friday and Saturday.
On Friday, David Esteb drove Eat’n Dollars/Alky Edition to a pull of 216.27 feet. Cody Haney of Athens, Ala., took first with a pull of 281.08 feet.
“Friday started off strong, front end off the ground, running strong, but the engine shut off at 200 feet,” Janet Esteb said. “We ended up 10th out of 11 tractors. We stayed up late checking things out, talking to other pullers and the next morning we were draining the fuel tank and found the baffle in the fuel tank had broken the welds and was floating around and cutting off the fuel going down the track.”
“We took it out and ran it Saturday night and came in fifth out of 11 tractors. I guess we found our gremlin. It’s on to Wheatland (Mo.) for our last Champions Tour pull on Friday.”
With the fueling issues fixed Saturday, Esteb had a good pull of 299.86 feet, good for a fifth-place finish. Haney once again took top honors with a pull of 321.53 feet.
The final Light Super Stock Division pull for the Champions Tour is Friday at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo.
