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.

Vaughn Bauer - Vice President

BauerVaughnVaughn was elected to a three-year term beginning in 2022. He is the founder and president of Bauer Built Manufacturing of Paton, Iowa, which began in 1982 as a small machine, welding, and paint shop based in a garage. Vaughn's design of a folding planter for road travel caught the attention of John Deere, with whom he partnered for 10 years in the construction of the DB Series. Bauer Built Manufacturing reopened in a new 200,000-sq. ft. facility in 2015, a complex that was further expanded in 2020 and presently employs about 80.

Bauer Built's "Ironman" weight transfers, which are called upon to regulate such contests as Tomah, Chapel Hill, and Bowling Green, have been routinely honored with the NTPA's Sled of the Year Award.

Vaughn and his wife Lori reside in Paton.

Dale Quamme - Secretary

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.
