This weekend, the Battle of the Bluegrass Pulling Series (BOB Series) will be at the Hardin County Fairgrounds in Elizabethtown, Kentucky for it’s 1st Annual Spring Sizzle Pull. “With the success of our championship pull in Elizabethtown Pull for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Awareness this past fall, fans were asking why not a spring pull in E-Town, so we have put together a great show for everyone this weekend,” said BOB Series CEO Tom McConnell. “We have seven classes of pulling vehicles to showcase to fans, and there is something for everyone this weekend, May 25 in E-Town.”
The pull will take place Saturday, May 25 at 7pm at the Hardin County Fairgrounds, in Elizabethtown, KY. Classes to run include Work Stock Diesel Trucks (2.5), Pro Street Diesel Trucks (2.6), Light Limited Super Stock Tractors, Pro Farm Tractors, Hot Farm Tractors, Super Stock 2WD Trucks, and new this year, the Modified 4WD Trucks. “It has been over 10 years since the fans in E-Town have seen the Modified 4WD Trucks, and we look for a great turnout of these Mountain Motors, fuel injected monsters,” said McConnell.
For the first time in 2013, fans will be able to taste the foods of the BOB Series’ newest sponsors; MoonPie and BUBBA burger. “The food booths will be grilling BUBBA burger hamburgers, and BUBBA burger Bratwurst. Then for dessert, MoonPies will be available to take care of your sweet tooth,” said McConnell. “A lot of people don’t realize all the different flavors and varieties that MoonPie and BUBBA burger have, so in E-Town fans can taste them all."

Lagrange, Kentucky is the Next Stop for the Battle of the Bluegrass
This Saturday, May 11, the Battle of the Bluegrass Pulling Series (BOB Series) will be in LaGrange, Kentucky. “Lagrange is one of those pulls that fans and pullers do not want to miss. Fans always see a good show, and pullers always want to claim their bragging rights to a win in LaGrange,” said BOB Series CEO Tom McConnell. “Pulling has been going on in LaGrange since the 1970’s, and it is known for being one of the best tracks in the state.”
One of the reasons for the great track in LaGrange is the work that goes into building the track and the team that puts it together. “Wayne Kincaid and his crew work untold hours to make sure that the track is the best it can be,” said McConnell. “Kincaid and his crew have been building the tracks in LaGrange since the early 1980s and they know how to work the dirt so that pullers can use all the horsepower they can make. LaGrange is definitely a power track”.
The pull in LaGrange will take place this Saturday, May 11, at 7:30pm EST. Classes to run include the Light Limited Super Stock Tractors, Light Pro Stock/Super Farm Tractors, Hot Farm Tractors, Work Stock Diesel Trucks, Pro Street Diesel Trucks, and new this year, the Pro Street Semis.
LaGrange is also a hotbed of pullers. Many top pullers from the BOB Series are from Oldham County. “Oldham County has always had a lot of top notch and legendary pullers. Names like Kincaid, Powells and many others have been on the top both regional and nationwide,” said McConnell. “Some of the top name BOB Series Pullers include Kenny and Brad Powell, who pull in the Light Limited Super Stock Class. Kenny Webb and Allen Powell are also in the top of their class in the Hot Farm class. The fans always come out to LaGrange to cheer on their hometown pullers.”
