Lagrange, Kentucky, Next Stop on the Road to Belterra
As the Howes Lube/Battle of the Bluegrass Series (BOB Series) heads into the final events for 2014, Lagrange, Kentucky will be a pressure point for many of the top drivers, in their quest for a championship. “2014 is the Road to Belterra, as our annual awards banquet will take place at Belterra, and that is where our Howes Lube/BOB Series champions will be crowned,” said BOB Series CEO Tom McConnell. “A lot of things can happen between now and Elizabethtown, so every driver will be focused in gaining as many points as possible.”
The points battles in some classes may already be set, but in Hot Farm it is a battle between Lamary and Levi Thomas, and their ‘Wives Competition’ and Lagrange native, Allen Powell and his ‘Case of Chaos’. The pull in Shepherdsville gave an even larger lead to the Thomas team, as they won the event, and Allen Powell went out of bounds, so you can bet Powell will have his game on when he hits the track in Lagrange this Saturday.”
The pull in Lagrange will take place this Saturday at the Oldham County Fairgrounds in Lagrange, at 7:30pm. Classes to run include Hot Farm Tractors, 11,000 and 13,000 Farm Stock Tractors, Light Limited Super Stock Tractors, Work Stock Diesel Trucks and Pro Street Diesel Trucks.

The location is great for everyone, just off I-65, and the fans are known for cheering on their favorites and staying to the end,” said BOB Series CEO Tom McConnell. “Shepherdsville has the fastest track in the state, with drivers getting a free ride at the takeoff, as the track is slightly slopped downhill.

Such top pullers as “The Brothers Keeper”, “Dil-A-Gaf”, “Just Wastin’ Time”, “Case of Chaos”, along with the winningest puller of all, Jerry Sipes. Also the Semis will be there, which is always a crowd favorite in Shepherdsville.”
The Howes Lube/Battle of the Bluegrass Series has several major food and beverage companies that they work with, many of which will have their foods available at the concession stands. “Where else can you go and eat a Bubba-burger, a Brownings Country Ham sandwich, a MoonPie and wash it all down with a Faygo soda! Plus you get that great smell of diesel smoke to go with it, and all the diesel smoke you want, you can take home with you!”
