“During the winter off-season, pullers have been getting their vehicles set up for another competitive season,” said BOB Series CEO Tom McConnell, “It was a close points race for many teams last year and they will have to put forth some trial and error in order to grab onto an early points lead.”
Lindsey and Allen Moore and their “Old Rags” were first Light Limited Super Stock team running a diesel tractor to win the Battle of the Bluegrass Championship last year. They’ll be out to get an early lead this year to try and hold on to their title.

In Memory of Puller Joe Wilson
It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of Joe Wilson. Joe drove in the Hot Street 4×4 Small Block class with the BOB Series and was from Harrodsburg, Kentucky. Joe was a true legend in the sport, starting his pulling career when truck pulling began. He was a two-time TNT Super Stock 4WD World Champion, with one of his wins taking place in the Houston Astrodome. Joe was a true gentleman and a great ambassador for the sport of truck pulling. He will truly be missed.
