AUGUSTA, GA - Those who boogie over to the Bad Boy Buggies booth at the Country Music Association (CMA) Music Festival in Nashville, Tenn., June 7-10 will have the opportunity to meet the stars of the popular SWAMP PEOPLE™ television series and Michael Waddell's Bone Collector TV show, and a chance to win a new Ambush™ utility vehicle.
The Bad Boy Buggies booth will be located at The Buckle, on Broadway between First Avenue and Fourth Avenue. Booth appearance times:
Troy, Jacob and Chase Landry from the SWAMP PEOPLE ™ television series-June 7 and 8, 11 a.m.-1 p.m. and 3 p.m.-5 p.m.
Bruce Mitchell from the SWAMP PEOPLE ™ television series-June 9 and 10, 11 a.m.-1 p.m. and 3 p.m.-5 p.m.
Michael Waddell and his Bone Collector buddies Travis "T-Bone" Turner and Nick Mundt-June 9 and 10, 1 p.m.-2 p.m.
While chatting with the stars, booth visitors can enter a drawing for an Ambush vehicle, which has a manufacturer's suggested retail price of $13,999. With the Ambush and its pioneering technology, hunters and other outdoor enthusiasts no longer have to choose between the silent, odorless operation of an electric vehicle or the extended range offered by a gas powertrain.
The Ambush features both a 48-volt electric drivetrain and a 16 hp, 480cc V-Twin gas engine, either of which can operate the vehicle independently in two-wheel-drive operation, or which can be operated in tandem for four-wheel-drive power. With a range of up to 100 miles, the Ambush offers the avid hunter a solution for longer hunting excursions where both extended range and low-noise, odorless operation are necessary for a successful hunt.
"We invite hunters and other utility vehicle fans at the CMA Music Festival to check out our new Ambush," said Eric Bondy, vice president of the consumer value stream for Bad Boy Buggies. "See if you agree that it is the ultimate vehicle for hunters seeking range and power combined with low-noise, zero-emissions operation required to sneak up on a trophy kill."
Available this summer, the vehicle provides three separate operating modes: rear-wheel-drive 2WD gas, front-wheel-drive 2WD electric, and 4WD with both gas and electric powertrains engaged. Operators can shift from gas to electric mode "on the fly" using a simple control integrated into the vehicle's keyswitch.
An onboard computer coordinates the operation of the Ambush's dual powertrains, ensuring that the gas and electric systems work together for maximum power and efficiency and making control easy for the driver. A momentary boost switch offers immediate 4WD operation at the push of a button to power through the trail's deepest ruts and eddies.
