My brother Bill Rockefeller originally got me interested in tractor pulling. He had pulled Super Stocks for 16 years before I started in 1986. This picture of him & his JD 4010 SS is from a news paper article in 1976.

This is a picture of the twin allison Policy Peddler the first time it was rolled out of the shop!
When I switched to Chevy's I had used a Engler gear box. Specifically I had purchased the one from Fred Freeman's Mean Mistreater, which Kenny Angel had purchased. Toward the end of the first year the gears had broken so I had the box re-build. The next year I won the points race her in NY with ESP. That winter I was re-building the tractor getting ready for Louisville. A couple weeks before going I had the gear box out and decided to have the gears magna-fluxed "just in case" even though I knew the gears were only a year old. There were several cracked teeth. I was not sure why I continued to have a problem with "that" gear box, I knew I did not want it to continue so I called SCS and Mike Sage built the current gear box I have with the engines facing forward
