Over the years of the Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League's Champions Tour, few competitors have been more consistent then Bill Leischner and his Sassy powered Speedco Dirtslinger.  After missing out on a three peat in 2011, the Weldon, Illinois native came into the 2012 season with a passion to reclaim the title back in the insanely competitive E-3 Sparkplug Modified Tractor Class.  Having won several championships throughout his career, Leischner knows what it takes to be in front when the dust settles in September.  The vision for success starts at the top with Bill but truly comes to fruition with the help and support of the amazing team that hits the road week in and week out on the circuit.
