The VERY best part of the tractor pull - this wife really supported her husband's pulling. She did the same thing last year and every time he pulls! It is a riot to watch her. Less

Danny and Kevin Schmucker added another John Deere to the stable as they began to chase a second consecutive championship. In addition to "Rampage" that they won with in 2011, they officially added the "Git Er Done" Deere to their team. Danny drove "Rampage" with Kevin campaigning "Git Er Done" for the majority of the hooks. The team backed up their initial success with another championship in their second full season on the Grand National circuit. Danny put "Rampage" into the points lead coming out of the first event in Tomah, Wis. and held it for the rest of the season. He said, "It's not a sprint, it's a marathon. You don't have to win them all, you just have to do well at all of them." The team struggled in Jerseyville, Ill., finishing last and third from last. The points lead was down to one point over the Lemkes but they had 10 days before the next hook in Dubuque, Iowa. The Schmuckers used this opportunity to work on a few little things on both tractors and it definitely had a positive influence. Danny won the next hook in Dubuque with "Rampage," and Kevin won aboard "Git Er Done" on Saturday in Ionia, Mich. The tractors were both consistent for the remainder of the season. Danny earned one victory and five second place finishes and never finished outside of the top 10 all season. "Rampage" was the only tractor to finish in the top five both days in Bowling Green, Ohio. They were able to build on the lead each and every weekend and eventually won the title by an ... Less

The "Armed & Dangerous" team fields two Light Super Stocks, "Considered Armed & Dangerous" and "Armed & Dangerous Excessive Force." This is the third consecutive Championship in this class for "A&D Excessive Force." This part of the team consists of owner Mike Chizek and driver Brian Korth. They felt that the brand new "Considered A&D" "was the tractor to beat this year but it wasn't dialed in at the beginning of the season." This tractor finished second in the end of season points race. Tim Peissig won the first session of the season in Tomah, Wis. with "The Bomb." Brian Korth won the second hook in Tomah to take the points lead, a lead he would not relinquish for the rest of the season. He came out on top at the next hook in Georgetown, Ohio as well. Mike Happe put "Red Menace" in first place the following night in Georgetown. Kevin Lynn earned a victory with the "504 Rocket" on Friday night in New Hampton, Iowa. Brandon Phillips won with "Insanity" during the second session. Marcus Wettleson won the first night in Brandenburg, Ky. Korth won the last five hooks of the season, one in Brandenburg and the final hook of the season in Jefferson City, Mo. with "A&D Excessive Force." These were sandwiched around three wins for "Considered A&D." They won more than half of the hooks on the Grand National schedule. The team said the most challenging point of the season was in New Hampton, Iowa. "We always seem to struggle at that track." The highlight of the season was sweeping ... Less

The Diesel Super Stock points race this year was an epic battle between two distinguished champions, Brian Shramek, the five-time defending champion with the "Young Blood" Agco DT 225 and Esdon Lehn, 11-time Grand National Champion, with the "Red Line Fever" International 1486. During the early season, several tractors were within a handful of points of the lead. During the first 11 hooks of the season, there were eight different winners. Jody Ross won twice with "Resurrected Red Neck," Steve Burge twice with "Lock-N-Load," Esdon Lehn once each with "RLF" and "RLF Lite" and then a split between those two tractors. Mike Beck's "High Tech Red Neck," Brandon Hunt's "Liv'n A Dream," David Siefert's "Renegade Deere," and Jim Schaendorf's "Radical Red" all took victories early in the season as well. Following the pull in Ionia, Mich., Lehn took his first lead with "RLF" by one point over "Young Blood." Lehn won in Mount Sterling, Ill. with "RLF Lite" but maintained the points lead with "RLF." Dennis Shramek earned the first win of the year for the "Young Blood" team in Salem, Ill. Lehn won the next hook in Napoleon, Ohio to take a threepoint lead. Brian Shramek swept both hooks in Bowling Green, Ohio to take a one-point lead over "RLF." Lehn came up big when it mattered most by winning both hooks in Jefferson City, Mo. to retake the points lead. He was ahead of Shramek by five points with three hooks left. Shramek finished fourth while Lehn finished seventh aboard "RLF" with ... Less

The M202A1 FLASH (Flame Assault Shoulder Weapon) is an American rocket launcher, designed to replace the World War II-vintage flamethrowers that remained the military's standard incendiary devices well into the 1960s. The M202 is based on the prototype XM191 napalm rocket launcher that saw extensive testing in the Vietnam War.nnThe M202A1 features four tubes that can load 66 mm incendiary rockets. The M74 rockets are equipped with M235 warheads, containing approximately 1.34 pounds (0.61 kg) of an incendiary agent. The substance, often mistaken for napalm, is in fact thickened pyrophoric agent (TPA).nnTPA is triethylaluminum (TEA) thickened with polyisobutylene. TEA, a organometallic compound, is pyrophoric and burns spontaneously at temperatures of 1200°C (2192°F) when exposed to air. It burns "white hot" because of the aluminum, much hotter than gasoline or napalm. The light and heat emission is very intense and can produce skin burns from some (close) distance without direct contact with flame, by thermal radiation alone.nnAs the caliber is shared with the contemporary M72 LAW RPG, it would have been theoretically possible to fire HEAT anti-tank rockets in lieu of the incendiary payload, and the XM191 was in fact capable of this. In the event, no such round was ever developed for the M202.nnThe weapon is meant to be fired from the right shoulder, and can be fired from either a standing, crouching, or prone position. It has a trigger mode to facilitate firing all four rockets at once, not just one at a time. After firing, it can be reloaded with a clip housing four rockets.nnThe M202A1 was issued as needed, generally one per rifle platoon. As with most RPGs, no dedicated gunners were trained, the weapon instead being carried in addition to the rifleman's standard weapon. While vastly more lightweight than the M2 flamethrower it replaced, the weapon was still bulky to use and the ammunition suffered from reliability problems. As a result, the weapon had mostly been relegated to storage by the mid-1980s, even though it nominally remains a part of the US Army arsenal. Less
