Bob has been involved in truck and tractor pulling since 1972 when his brother in law built a Modified tractor that competed on the state and local levels. During the years of competition with this tractor, Bob and others involved, decided to build a pulling sled. Their sled was used on the state and local level and was also used as a backup sled for TNT pulling events which took them to pulls on a National level. This group also had equipment needed to promote their own pulling events.
Bob has been a member of the Big Knob Grange Fairboard for 10+ years and his responsibility was the securing and operation of all track events.
Bob has been a certified ATPA Tech and track official for 5+ years. For the past 10+ years he has contracted his services and fellow workers to Full Pull Productions thru his company Trackside Services. Bob terminated his services to Full Pull in October 2005.
In November 2005, Bob and Rusty were approached by Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League to sanction pulling events in Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia for the PPL. With the combined experience of these three individuals they decided to form Power Pulling Productions, LLC to promote pulling events.
