Charlestown, IN (May 3rd, 2021) – Sunday, May 2nd, 2021 the world of tractor pulling lost an icon the Super Stock class, Lyle Hull of Waupun, Wisconsin. Hull’s career in Super Stock competition spanned across six decades pulling on the state and national level, a trailblazer carrying the banner for alcohol-fueled Minneapolis-Molines for the entirety of his career.
Lyle began his career in the late Seventies wheeling a lightweight Super Stock Minneapolis-Moline 5-Star named “Northern Star.” In the mid-Eighties he switched to a G1000 Minneapolis-Moline for Heavy Super Stock competition, running that tractor until the late Nineties. After a decade-plus hiatus Hull returned to the seat of his family’s component G1000 for competition on the Champions Tour in Unlimited Super Stock. From 2014 to 2019 Lyle finished in the top ten in the points standings in Unlimited Super with a third place in points in 2016. 2016 would also find Hull recording his first Champions Tour win at Saluda, South Carolina; his other win in the class came in 2017 at Hamburg, New York.
The Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League family offers their sincerest condolences to the Hull family in their time of loss; at press time funeral arrangements have not been made.
