Bill Leischner

Charlestown, Indiana (October 23, 2017) - In the world of modified tractor pulling there are few names who demonstrate the consistency and longevity of the 2017 E3 Spark Plugs Super Modified Tractor Champion, Bill Leischner and the Ram Mounts Dirtslinger. A multi-time champion in the class, Leischner will be honored this weekend at the prestigious Hyatt Regency Hotel in Indianapolis, Indiana on October 28th during the Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League Champions Banquet, standing among his peers that are of legendary status as well.

This year’s race to the Championship was one of the closest ever; Eight different pullers claimed victory in the fourteen scheduled events. Leischner’s title run was made possible with nine top-five finishes to his credit with two wins in that set of podium recognitions. Just behind Leischner was the Stewart family’s Protect the Harvest Down and Dirty who mounted a late-season charge to the top but fell 12 points short of the title. Third place went to the Green Streak Unlimited of Greg Boyd who led the points early on and remained in the hunt all season long.

Congratulations to Bill Leischner on his 2017 E3 Spark Plugs Super Modified Tractor Championship!
