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 amazing 40 points.
The "Rampage" team has been extremely successful through the years, earning a Regional National title, two Bowling Green rings and 15 Grand National wins in addition to their back to back Grand National Championships. This fatherson team works very well together on the farm and on the track.
