Mt. Sterling and it’s Power Track are the Next Stop for the BOB Series
This Friday and Saturday, July 31 and August 1, the Howes Lube/Battle of the Bluegrass Series (BOB Series) is headed to the Montgomery County Fair in Mt. Sterling, KY. “This is one of the best tracks on the BOB Series. It is a short track, only 300 plus feet, but it takes horsepower and good driving to claim a victory here,” commented BOB Series CEO Tom McConnell. “Usually, somebody wins that is an underdog, and they usually win it by being able to get the power into the ground and then just hold on! This is one great place to watch a pull.”
The pull in Mt. Sterling will take place this Friday and Saturday, July 31 and August 1, at 7pm EST. For a complete listing of classes, please go to the BOB Series website and click under schedule.

Summer Surge Begins; Five Pulls in Six Days for the Battle of the Bluegrass
The Howes Lube/Battle of the Bluegrass Pulling Series (BOB Series) goes into it’s summer surge of events, as the BOB Series will sanction six events in five days, starting this Friday in Independence, KY. “With all the rain the region has received, everyone is glad that we can finally get out on the tracks and finally do some pulling,” said BOB Series CEO Tom McConnell. “This is the time of the year where not just the weather is hot, but the action on the track is even hotter, as drivers gain points in their quest to become a Howes Lube/BOB Series Champion.”
The pulling this week will kick off for two days in Independence, KY, on Friday and Saturday July 17-18. The pull in Independence will feature a special program for Pro Farm Tractors, as the driver who pulls the longest combined distance for both days will receive an extra $1000 for the Dexter Lafollotte Memorial Pull. “We do this in honor of our Father, Dexter Lafollette, who besides being a long time puller, was on the tractor pull committee at the Kenton County Fair for many years, and helped to grow this event into one of the larger pulls in the region,” commented Justin Lafollete. Also on Saturday Night, July 18, the BOB Series heads to Harrordsburg, KY.
After taking Sunday off, the BOB Series heads north to the Johnson County Fair in Franklin, IN. This is one of the larger fairs in the state of Indiana, and the BOB Series always draws a good crowd of pullers and fans to this large event. Also at this event, on Tuesday July 21, is the Innovative Machine Light Limited Super Stock Shoot Out, with Innovative Machine putting up $1,000 to the winner. “We feel that this is a great way to get our name out there, as well as to promote the class and get as many LLSS to Franklin as possible,” commented Mike Thomas of Innovative Machine.
