As the Howes Lube/Battle of the Bluegrass Pulling Series (BOB Series) passes the halfway point through the 2014 season, the BOB Series is proud to announce the drivers who are in the programs. “Faygo is putting up $1,000, which will be given away at the 2014 Awards Banquet at Belterra Casino Resort. In order to qualify, you must have made a full pull in any class and competed in the pull off. At the Awards Banquet, those who are in attendance will have their names entered in a drawing, and if your name is drawn, you will get a $1,000 compliments of Faygo Soda,” said BOB Series CEO Tom McConnell. “This is a great way for people to know about Faygo and even better for the driver that takes home an extra $1,000 that night.”

Though not leading the points, Clint Corwin is leading the way with the Rip It Up the Dirt program, having pulled a total distance in 2014 of 5208.28 feet!

Additionally, Rip It Energy Fuel, the Official Energy Drink of the Howes Lube/BOB Series, is putting up $500 to the Work Stock Diesel Trucks and another $500 to the Pro Street Diesel Truck class. This special program,

the Rip It Up the Dirt, will give the award to the drivers in each Diesel Truck class that has the longest combined distance for the 2014 season. “This competition is really unique in that the driver who is leading the points may not necessarily have the longest distance, so this will be interesting to watch for the remainder of the season,” commented McConnell.

The Howes Lube/Battle of the Bluegrass Pulling Series (BOB Series) makes its annual stop at one of the most popular events in the entire season, this Saturday, August 9 at the Bullitt County Fairgrounds in Shepherdsville, Kentucky. “The pull in Shepherdsville, Kentucky is always a favorite for the fans and pullers. 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 sloped downhill. If you have never been to a pull, this is the event to come too, as seven of the top classes in the Howes Lube/BOB Series will be in competition this Saturday Night.”

Shepherdsville, Kentucky is also the place where point standings start to become very important, as Shepherdsville is a little past the halfway point in the Howes Lube/BOB Series points standings. “This year is the Road To Belterra, meaning that the Annual Awards Banquet will take place at Belterra Casino Resort, and gaining the most points you can gives the drivers a chance at becoming one of the elite pullers who can claim that they are a Howes Lube Champion,” commented McConnell. “The points battles are really tight in some classes, so a win at Shepherdsville is really important for those who are on the road to Belterra.”

The pull in Shepherdsville will kick off this Saturday at 7pm EST at the Bullitt County Fairgrounds. Classes to run include the ever popular in Shepherdsville, the Pro Street Semis, Work Stock Diesel Trucks, Pro Street Diesel Trucks (2.6), Light Limited Super Stock Tractors, Hot Farm Tractors, Super Stock 2WD Trucks, and Outlaw Super Stock Tractors.
