LiquiTube Becomes Official Tire Sealant of the Battle of the Bluegrass
The Battle of the Bluegrass Pulling Series (BOB Series) is proud to announce that LiquiTube is now the Official Tire Sealant of the BOB Series. “LiquiTube is the #1 selling premium tire sealant in the United States and is exported to over 118 countries worldwide. This company is the leader in its industry and we are very excited to be working with them,” said BOB Series CEO Tom McConnell.
LiquiTube was founded in 1990, and its unique formula is like no other tire sealant. “LiquiTube coats the inside of the tires and wheels to keep to air filled tires properly inflated for the life of the tire,” said LiquiTube COO Lyndon Forby. “LiquiTube will extend the life of your tire, increase your fuel economy, will eliminate tire repair costs, reduce tire damage from blowouts, as well as extending the retreadability of tire casings. Just think of the man hours saved by not having to repair tires.”
LiquiTube will be attending several pulls this year with the BOB Series. Many people have seen their displays at the National Farm Machinery Show and other major agricultural and heavy industry shows. The key display features a tire that has LiquiTube inside the tire and then people can push a nail into the tire and see for themselves that the tire does not go flat. “We plan on bringing this display to many events so that the pullers and fans can see how well LiquiTube works,” commented Forby. “We are always looking for new dealers and customers, so please give us a call if you would like more information about buying or selling the product.”
