The summer heat continues, and so does the Battle of the Bluegrass Summer Shootout. The final weeks of July will take the Battle of the Bluegrass (BoB Series) to Franklin and Osgood, IN and Harrodsburg, KY.
On Wednesday, July 20, in Franklin IN, the BoB Series will feature Light Limited Super Stock and Pro Farm Tractors along with Pro Street Diesel & Super Stock 2WD Trucks and Pro Street Semis.
In the Pro Street Semis class, Darrel Fannin and Steve Lutmer continue to battle it out for the points lead. Darrel is holding on to the lead with Steve chasing him down at only 4 points separation. Competion continues to be fierce this year and anything can still happen.
Saturday, July 23, Harrodsburg, KY will host Light Limited Super Stock and Pro Farm Tractors again along with two classes of Super Stock 4WD Trucks.
Royce McGowan won both Elizabethtown and Independence, KY and currently maintains his solid lead in the Pro Farm Tractors point standings. Pro Farm Tractors also pull at all three upcoming events, so we’ll see if Instigator can stay on top!
The Light Limited Super Stock class is currently led by Lindsay Moore and his “Old Rags”, after his wins this past weekend in Elizabethtown and Independence, KY. Kenny Powel and his “Out 4 Revenge” are right at his heels. Since the Light Limited Super Stocks compete at all three upcoming events, we’ll have to wait and see if Moore can keep ahold of his lead.
The series then heads back to Osgood, IN on Tuesday, July 26. Featured classes for this event include Light Limited Super Stock, Hot Farm and Pro Farm Tractors along with Work Stock and Pro Street Diesel Trucks.
Austin White and Cody Hardesty are battling it out for the points lead in the Work Stock (2.5) Diesel Trucks class. Austin is currently maintaining a 10-point lead on Cody.
In the Pro Street Diesel (2.6/3.0) Diesel class, Clint Corwin maintains his points lead by 20 points with Grady Perry following close behind. At Osgood, we’ll see who ends up on top.
