In 2017, that margin refused to budge beyond a single marker. Kieck's daughter Bethany, 56, also died last October after an illness.Down a point entering Wellington, Ohio's Friday Night Spectacular after a seesaw battle with Josh Blackbourn's "International Threat" (-1) in Greenville, the drama was intensified when those two contending tractors---along with their respective teammates "GALOT" (-13) and "Extremely Armed & Dangerous" (-4) ---qualified for a pull-off.
