The Battle of the Bluegrass Pulling Series (BOB Series) event Saturday at the Madison County Fairgrounds will raise funds for Habitat for Humanity of Madison and Clark Counties.
The pull, which starts at 5 p.m., will have classes for every type of fan, said Tom McConnell, who heads the BOB Series.
“We will have diesel trucks and diesel tractors, light-weight, super-stock, alcohol-burning tractors; and four-wheel drive trucks that make more noise that a 747 jet taking off,” he said.
“We expect over 100 pulling teams coming from five states to be competing at this event,” McConnell said. “This will be the largest pulling event Richmond has ever seen.”
The pull will feature two tracks, one for the BOB Series and one for Antique Tractors. The antique event begins at 5 p.m. with the BOB Series beginning at 7 p.m.
“This pull will give fans a look at the latest and greatest technology in horsepower, while being able to take a look back in time to where pulling started,” McConnell said.
“We are very excited about the chance for one of our events to benefit Habitat for Humanity,” the organizer said
“A lot of people in this area are in need of housing, and Habitat for Humanity is taking care of these needs. Proceeds from this weekend’s event will go to benefit those in need and this is a great way to give back to the community.”
Habitat For Humanity is a Christian ministry founded on the belief that every human has the right to a safe, decent and affordable place to live.
