I never actually competed, but jimbuick and @NomZ both have competed in strongman.
Train harder than you ever have before and don't injure yourself when you should be deloading! (Guilty of the latter)

Have you trained on the implements?

The DL is easy enough to train, the log press is weird.
Closest thing would actually probably be incline bench.
You have to create a very large shelf to press off of for it, which requires a significant arch in the back. It also removes a lot of leg drive because of the hips already being in triple extension.
Also, stabilizing at the top is rough when they get heavy. I passed out doing it last Wednesday, best advice I can give is do it fast and take small breaths at the top. Holding the breath for IAP is a killer when trying to stabilize.

My training is:
DL/Conditioning/Bench/Squat/Rest/Strongman (OHP, Load, and Medley)/Rest
I placed 3rd at my first, so you never know.
Idk how much prep time you have, but I would practice the events at varying intensities a few times a week. I vary the intensity of my B/S/D between RE/DE/ME and vary the individual events on Saturday the same way, based on planes of movement (press/load/carry+drag).
