Dale 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.
