Lane was a sixth-grader when he took home first prize in the Youth Division of the 2018 National Farm Toy Show.
He came in second at the 2019 National Farm Toy Show in the Youth Division of the small scale contest. He has also exhibited and won display contests at the Lafayette Farm Toy Show and the Gateway Mid-America Toy Show in St. Louis, Mo.
In 2018, Lances display featured an Iowa farm scene with a beef cattle lot and a corn field being harvested. An Allis-Chalmers MFD tractor can be spotted in the field pulling a John Deere grain cart, transferring corn into a Parker gravity wagon pulled by an IH 86 Series tractor with MFD as well. In the nearby farmyard, a Ford grain truck is dumping corn into an auger leading to the grain bin.
