As the Howes Lube/Battle of the Bluegrass Pulling Series (BOB Series) continues through its season, two major events will take place this week, at two of the most renowned pulling facilities in the United States. “The next two events are all about bragging rights. Every puller wants to put on their resume that they won in Brandenburg and Owensboro, so this week will determine who gets those bragging rights,” said BOB Series CEO Tom McConnell. “Both facilities are known for having what many say are the best tracks in America and the crowds are among the largest anywhere.”

The pull in Brandenburg, Kentucky will take place this Tuesday, July 22 at the Meade County Fair, starting at 7pm EST. The Brandenburg pull will feature a special commentator, Bob Bob DomineDomine, formerly of WAVE TV 3(NBC) out of Louisville. “Bob has never been to a pull, but I have been on his show several times talking about pulling, and he has really gotten interested in not just the action on the track, but with the culture about the sport,” commented McConnell. “This will be a real treat to announce this event with one of the great sports broadcasters.”

The pull in Owensboro will take place on July 25 and 26 at the Daviess County Fairgrounds, just outside of Philpot, KY. “This event has a long history of pulling, and it is the only event where the Howes Lube/BOB Series utilizes a two track system, that results in an endless stream of pulling action,” commented McConnell. “The track conditions require a lot of horsepower, and many pullers say that the Owensboro track is the fastest that they have ever pulled on.” Additionally, the pull on Saturday night will be filmed for several NBC Sports broadcasts, which will air later this year.

The Howes Lube/Battle of the Bluegrass returns to Kentucky this weekend, this Friday and Saturday, July 18 and 19, at the Kenton County Fair in Independence, KY. “The Kenton County Fair is one of the larger events that the BOB Series sanctions, as the pits get full and fans fill the hill side to catch all the pulling action,” said BOB Series CEO Tom McConnell. “The track is a very aggressive clay and horsepower is always needed in Independence.”

Kenton County and the surrounding area is home to many of the top pullers in the Howes Lube/BOB Series. “Pullers like Gary Spegal, Aaron Lafollette, Justin Lafollette, Kyle Ruby, AJ and Ryan Fulks, Brent and Ethan Moore, and many more will be in action trying to claim a victory close to home. A victory in Independence gives the winner some really good bragging rights at future events, as it takes a good vehicle and an even better driver to chalk up a win in Kenton County.”
The pull in Independence, KY will take place this Friday and Saturday, with most of the classes that the BOB Series sanctions will be in action. For a complete listing of classes each night, please click here.

The Howes Lube/Battle of the Bluegrass Pulling Series (BOB Series) journeys back into Indiana this week and beyond, as starting on Thursday, July 10, the BOB Series will host six pulls in six days. “This is the time of the year where fans and pullers see a lot of changes happen in the point standings and results. This is the time of the year, where the heat outside can boil over into the drivers, as the competition gets tough to maintain their vehicles in what is a pulling marathon,” said BOB Series CEO Tom McConnell. “The question remains, as to which drivers will survive the pulling marathon, that lies ahead.”

The BOB Series will kick off its pulling adventure, this Thursday night, July 10 in Elizabethtown, KY, and also in North Vernon, IN. Then on Friday, July 11, the BOB Series will be Madison, IN., followed by Charlestown, IN. on Saturday July 12, and then taking off on Sunday, with Monday and Tuesday night in Franklin, IN.
