Standings August 16, 2018 and Added Money at Finals Next Week

August 23, 2018 is Carbondale Wild West Rodeo Finals for 2018. It’s been a great season and many of the events and the All Around are turning out to be nail biters. There are a couple events that the current leader cannot be dethroned. This is in the Bull Riding with Quinton Hayden leading the ranks, Ronnie Will has the Barrel Racing all sewn up, and Haley Mazurek is your buckle winner in the Junior Barrels. We will have both hide racing and ranch broncs at the final rodeo.

Join us next week to cheer on the contestants for the final rodeo of the season and watch the cowboys and cowgirls receive their event buckles, the All Around Award saddle, Scholarship announcements and the Trent Goscha Sportsmanship Award.

Thanks to the generosity of Tom Bailey at Iron Rose Ranch, there will also be added money of $500 in #8 Team Roping, $500 in the #11 Team Roping, and $250 in Jr. Breakaway and $250 Jr. Barrels. Tom has been a tremendous supporter of the rodeo and we are truly grateful for all he has done to help make the Carbondale Wild West Rodeo the long-standing success that it is.

There is also $1,200 carry over money in the bull riding from when no one has ridden.

For the results from August 16th of all the events see the Results posting in the news articles.
