The F.A.R.M. Club Welcomes The Battle of Bluegrass To Osgood, Indiana
The Howes Lube/Battle of the Bluegrass Pulling Series(BOB Series) makes it first journey north of Kentucky this weekend, June 26-27 to the Ripley County Fairgrounds in Osgood, Indiana. “Last year we set a record for the largest crowd ever in Osgood and we hope to do it again,” said BOB Series CEO Tom McConnell. “NBC Sports will be filming the pull on Saturday night and due to the size of the event we will start early at 5pm on Saturday. This event will feature all the classes the BOB Series has to offer, as well as giving fans a chance to visit one of the largest Antique Tractor and Agricultural Heritage Shows in the State of Indiana,” commented McConnell. “The event is being sponsored locally by Southern Indiana REMC and Ripley County Tourism.”
The F.A.R.M. Club is a non-profit organization that stands for Farm & Antique Related Machinery. The group is focused on the collecting, restoration, exhibiting, and preservation of the farming lifestyle. “The F.A.R.M. Club wishes to preserve the heritage and knowledge of the agricultural lifestyle that could be lost if it is not taken care of, and that has resulted in our Annual Show in Osgood,” said Chuck Heck, one of the Directors of the F.A.R.M. Club. The show features Antique Tractors, Stationary Hay Baling, Steam Engines, Corn Shredding, Sawmill and Planer, Working Blacksmiths, Tractor Games, Homemakers Demonstrations, crafts, flea markets, as well as a Pedal Pull that is being sponsored by MoonPie. “MoonPie will make sure every kid gets to taste a MoonPie when they enter the pull,” commented McConnell.
The Howes Lube/Battle of the Bluegrass Pulling Series will be hosting two days of pulling, June 26 and June 27 at the Ripley County Fairgrounds during the show, with the pull starting at 7pm on Friday and 5pm on Saturday. The pull will feature all the classes the BOB Series has to offer including the Light Limited Super Stock Tractors, Outlaw Super Stock Tractors, Diesel Trucks, Two Wheel Drive Trucks and for the first time ever in Osgood, Semis.

3rd Annual Waco Volunteer Fire Department Pull This Saturday in Richmond
This coming Saturday, June 20, in Richmond, Kentucky, the Howes Lube Battle of the Bluegrass Pulling Series (BOB Series) returns to the Madison County Fairgrounds in Richmond, KY. This year, for the first time, fans will be treated to double the horsepower, as this event will feature two tracks. “The pull in Richmond has grown to the point to where we had to add another track to get the pull in, so this year, we have given the fans what they wanted…more pulling action on two tracks,” commented BOB Series CEO Tom McConnell. “This is the biggest fund raiser for the year for the Waco Volunteer Fire Department, so we hope everyone can come out and enjoy the show.”
At one time, Richmond, Kentucky was the home to several Grand National pulls back in the early and mid 1970’s. Since the BOB Series teamed up with the Waco Volunteer Fire Department, things have been growing very quickly to bring the Richmond event back to its glory days. “The Golden Days of Pulling has returned to Richmond. With the advent of two sleds and two tracks, we will be able to offer more classes, and non-stop pulling action all night this Saturday at the fairgrounds,” commented Waco Fire Department Spokesman, Jason Rawlings.
The pull in Richmond will take place this Saturday, June 20 at the Madison County Fairgrounds at 7pm EST. Classes to run include Work Stock Diesel Trucks (2.5), Pro Street Diesel Trucks (2.6), Pro Street Semis, Light Limited Super Stock Tractors, Hot Farm Tractors, Pro Farm Tractors, Outlaw Super Stock Tractors, Super Stock 2WD Trucks and Super Street 4×4 Big Blocks.

For the past eight years, the Danville-Boyle County Fair in Danville, KY, has been the home of the Bluegrass Nationals, and this weekend, June 12-13, will be a huge event. “Last year the pullers and fans were treated to what many called was the best event of 2014, and we plan on trying to keep the reputation of this event going in the right direction,” said BOB Series CEO Tom McConnell. “NBC Sports will be returning to film the event on Saturday night, so fans are encouraged to make signs to get on the cameras as well.”
The pull in Danville, which features most of the classes the BOB Series runs, also includes a special event this weekend for the Light Limited Super Stock Tractor Class. “The pull in Danville is a part of the national tour for LLSS tractors, so drivers from across the country that have never been in Danville will be there to make up a huge class of LLSS,” said McConnell. “We are expecting LLSS to come from KY, IN, OH, NY, MI, WI, TN and many other states. This event is do not miss for all pulling fans.”
