Bone Twister Takes Hardest-Working Puller Award in Cloverdale

HWP 2015During the first-ever C Bar C NTPA Winter Nationals, Travis Schlabach of Marengo, Iowa captured the title of “Hardest-Working Puller.” Sponsored by Shell Rotella and O’Reilly Auto Parts, the award was earned by the competitor that pulled the greatest combined distance over the two nights of competition among the three divisions.

After Friday’s Session One, Schlabach’s “Bone Twister” Diesel Super Stock was in third place by two and a half feet, trailing fellow class winners Rick Campbell (“Soup Line Express” Pro Stock) and Renee Theobald (“Pretty Wicked” Two Wheel Drive). With a strong Saturday pass, Schlabach finished over five feet in front of the Petro team’s “Runnin’ Block” (the Session Two TWD class winner) and vaulted into first, sweeping the weekend in the process.

Schlabach was awarded a $1,000 bonus from Shell Rotella and O’Reilly Auto Parts as the prize. Notably, all three divisions that participated in the Winter Nationals were represented in the top three of the HWP standings after both sessions.
