WPI Board of Directors

Roger Wysong - President

WysongRoger Wysong is the owner of AP Productions (www.approduction.net), the studio from which NTPA Championship Pulling on RFD-TV originates. But longtime fans remember Roger's name from his days aboard the "Sting" modified mini, and competitors know him best as the man behind Midwest Wheel, his aluminum fab shop in Lewisburg, Ohio.

Roger and sons Rusty and Ryan got their start in the a/v business from their work producing services and programs for their church. Today, Roger and his dedicated crew film some of the NTPA's top events for inclusion in 26 episodes per TV season.

Dale Quamme - Vice President

DQDale Quamme was elected in 2020 to a three-year term on the WPI Executive Board, but his continuing service to the Association as a technical official and regional director goes back decades. A devoted garden tractor puller, Dale founded the National Garden Tractor Pullers Association in 1994 as an affiliate of the NTPA to bring structure to competition within that sport's various divisions. Later on, he was instrumental in the development of NTPA's rollcage standards that have, over the succeeding 20-plus years, protected countless drivers from serious injury.

Dale, his wife Donna, and their four children---Kelly, Kim, Kyle, and Kevin---have all been involved in truck and tractor pulling as competitors or support staff. Dale and Donna reside in Rosemount, Minnesota.
