Battle of the Bluegrass heads to Shelbyville, KY
The fall season is right around the corner signaling that the cooler weather is soon to be on it’s way, but competition in the Battle of the Bluegrass continues to heat up as the countdown begins leading up to the National Championships. “These last few months of the pulling season, teams can’t afford to make many mistakes. Their vehicles must be in top working order, and drivers are looking to gain even just a little edge on the competition. Sometimes that means pushing their engines just a little too hard… it’s all or nothing to some of these drivers.” Commented BOB Series CEO Tom McConnell.
Pulling has always been popular in Shelbyville, KY with events taking place since the 1950’s at the local Shelby Co. Fairgrounds. The fairgrounds is also home to one of the largest horse shows in Kentucky.
The pull will begin at 7PM on Saturday, August 20 and feature Light Limited Super Stock, Hot Farm, and 12,000lb Farm Stock Tractors along with Super Stoc 2WD, Work Stock and Pro Street Diesel Trucks.

Bullitt County Fairgrounds in Shepherdsville, KY This Weekend
This Saturday, August 13, the Battle of the Bluegrass returns to one of the most popular stops on the schedule. “The pull brings in a huge crowd to watch drivers compete on one of the fastest track on the circuit. The track actually runs downhill, allowing for drivers to just fly down the track. Shepherdsville always runs a great show and since there is usually a very large crowd, be sure to make it there early to get a good seat,” commented BOB Series CEO Tom McConnell.
The pulling season is in it’s last few months of competition, which means that the pullers have to work extra hard to maintain their lead or move up in the points race. Competition continues to be fierce and now more than ever the drivers must dig in and give it all they’ve got.
The pull in Shepherdsville will start at 7PM and feature Light Limited and Outlaw Super Stock Tractors, Super Stock 2WD Trucks, Work Stock and Pro Street Diesel Trucks, and the always popular Pro Street Semis.
Camera crews will be on site filming for “Hooked On Dirt”, the only reality show to center around the sport of pulling, to air fall of 2016.

This weekend the Battle of the Bluegrass Series (BOB Series) heads to the Montgomery County Fair in Mt. Sterling, KY. “This track is favored by pullers as one of the best tracks on the schedule. It’s one of the shorter tracks, but it’s also one of the least forgiving. Pullers and their vehicles must be at the top of their game to claim a victory,” said BOB Series CEO Tom McConnell. “Because this is such a tough track, it’s anybody’s game and more often than not, it’s the underdog that takes the prize by digging in and pushing their vehicle to it’s limits. It’s going to be a great show you don’t want to miss!”
The two-day event begins Friday, August 5th and runs through Saturday August 6th. Friday’s classes include local and antique tractors, Light Limited Super Stock and Pro Farm tractors as well as Street Diesel Trucks.
Saturday’s classes include Pro Farm and Outlaw Super Stock Tractors along with Pro Street Diesel (2.6) Trucks and the ever popular Pro Street Semis.
