Welcome to the Battle of the Bluegrass Pulling Series
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.

The Battle of the Bluegrass Pulling Series Is Excited To Welcome Jeffrey Machine Onboard as Presenting Sponsor of the Series
Jeffrey Machine was started in 1977 as a machine, tool, and die shop by Frank Sager. Frank, a machinist and metal fabricator with many years of experience, passed the family trade on to his son, Jeffrey Sager, who took great interest in the auger market.

Jeffrey Machine has developed into a state of the art Light and Medium Duty Augers, and Foundation Drilling Tool manufacturer, in addition to a full line general machine shop providing fabricated steel products and many types of hard surface welding.

Jeffrey paused from his busy day to show off one of the lathe that started it all 40 years ago. This lathe was given to him by his father and has been used to grow Jeffrey Machine into the largest privately owned auger company in the world.
“Jeffrey Machine wants to grow it’s Light and Medium Duty Auger business. The largest demographic of pulling fans, drivers and promoters come from rural America,” commented Tom McConnell, CEO of the BOB Series. “Many of these folks work in farming or construction industries that have a need for the quality augers and tools that Jeffrey Machine supplies, which means they are a perfect fit for our team!” Jeffrey Machine will be on display at the 2017 National Farm Machinery Show.
