In cooperation with Masters Entertainment Group, Sopwith Motorsports Television Productions will provide production support and personnel for NBCSN's coverage of the Howes Lubricator Battle of the Bluegrass (BOB) Pulling Series this weekend in Elizabethtown, KY.
The Elizabethtown event is the final stop on the 2014 calendar, with champions to be named in seven divisions of truck and tractor pulling. Pro Street Diesel Trucks, Super Stock Trucks and several other major divisions will be in action at the Hardin County Fairgrounds beginning at 6 pm on Saturday night.
The BOB Series Championship pull is a fund raiser for the Susan G Komen Breast Cancer Awareness Foundation. "Last year we were able to raise over $17,000 for breast cancer awareness and we hope to beat that this year," said promoter Tim Hornback. "We have fans and drivers coming from several states and we welcome everyone to come out and enjoy the festivities."
"We were involved in this series back in 2006 and 2007," said Stephen Cox of Sopwith Motorsports. "It will be good to see some of the teams that we've fallen out of touch with. Sopwith has always been a motorsports company, and that spans far more than just auto racing. We've done motorcycle racing, motocross, air shows, tractor and truck pulls, classic car events and a lot more. If it has an engine, it is our speciality. After a summer of short track racing and classic car auctions, this will be a fun change."
The event will be televised on Sunday, December 7 at 10 pm Eastern on NBCSN.
