LOUISVILLE, Ken. (June 22, 2014) – The Howes Lube/Battle of the Bluegrass Pulling Series (BOB Series) makes it first journey north of Kentucky this weekend, June 27-28 to the Ripley County Fairgrounds in Osgood, Indiana. “This promises to be one of the largest events we have sanctioned in the Hoosier state, with NBC Sports coming to film the pull on Saturday night,” said BOB Series CEO Tom McConnell.

“This event will feature all the classes the BOB Series has to offer, as well as giving fans a chance to visit one of the largest Antique Tractor and Agricultural Heritage Shows in the State of Indiana.” The event is being sponsored locally by Southern Indiana REMC and Ripley County Tourism.

The F.A.R.M. Club is a non-profit organization that stands for Farm & Antique Related Machinery. The group is focused on the collecting, restoration, exhibiting, and preservation of the farming lifestyle. “The F.A.R.M. Club wishes to preserve the heritage and knowledge of the agricultural lifestyle that could be lost if it is not taken care of, and that has resulted in our Annual Show in Osgood” said Chuck Heck, one of the Innovative Machine is putting up a $1,000 Bounty on Jerry Sipes and his “Family Driven” LLSS to the first puller or the first two pullers that can beat Jerry Sipes two weeks in a row. They started the Bounty this past weekend in Williamstown, where the Sipes team won yet another victory. Innovative Machine sponsors the “Till the Money Runs Out” 570 Cockshutt, which is sure to be a crowd favorite this weekend among all the Antique tractor fans.
