Cole George with his championship trophy and his tractor, Orange & Dangerous

In the spring of 2014, Cole George asked his granddad (David), "what are you going to do with that old tractor down there in the weeds?" Cole's question was met with his granddad's own question, "what are you wanting to do with it?"

Cole's answer, "I'm going to build me a Pulling Tractor!"

Cole cleaned out a spot in the back of Granddad's shop and went to work. Cole and his dad (Kevin) spent many hours in Granddad's shop, cutting, welding and grinding and many hours on the road gathering parts and ideas. Their good friend and neighbor Kim Young took that old beat up sheet metal and put a shine on it.

All the while Cole honed his driving skills on Granddad's old 200 Allis Chalmers.

The only thing that was lacking was a name. Cole's dream needed a name. So the question was posed at Grandma's dinner table: What will we name it? After a few terrible ideas, Grandma goes to the refrigerator and pulls a picture Cole had drawn when he was 10 years old from the door. He had named the picture "Orange & Dangerous."

After a tough 2015 season, Orange & Dangerous went back into Granddad's shop. With more hard work 2016 finally brought success. Cole won MTPA 2016 11,000-pound Hot Farm Points Champion along with his first invite to The 2017 Southern Invitational Truck and Tractor Pull in Murfreesboro. Cole made respectable runs but fell short of winning the championship.

The 2017 season brought a second MTPA Points Title along with an invite to the 2018 Southern Invitational in Murfreesboro. There were 17 tractors in the preliminaries Saturday afternoon. Cole made the finals by less than 4 inches. Adjustments were made to Orange & Dangerous and it's driver, as always, was ready. Cole drew first pull, Orange & Dangerous did its job and Cole was flawless from the seat. Six tractors pulled and came short, and Cole had his Southern Invitational Truck and Tractor Pull Championship.
