K.C. Jones, Burlington, Wyo.
In his career, K.C. Jones has received the highest acclaim from the entity he respects the most: his fellow cowboys.
Jones has earned the praise, sitting as one of the most versatile cowboys to have ever traveled down the rodeo trail. He’s won the Timed Event Championship four times and stands as one of the favorites every March when the best all-around cowboys come inside the Lazy E Arena in one of the most rugged tests in the business.
This weekend marks the first of two trips Jones will make to central Oklahoma this month – the tie-down roping average champion at the Ram Mountain States Circuit Finals Rodeo, he earned the right to compete at the Ram National Circuit Finals Rodeo, set for March 29-April 1 at State Fair Arena in Oklahoma City.
That is more evidence that the 44-year-old Wyoming cowboy is competing at a high level. With his experience, he can make a lot of things happen in a short amount of time, which is what the challenge of the Timed Event is all about. He’s conquered it more than most, having earned $388,500 over the years in this competition.
Last year a rarity occurred: Jones failed to earn a paycheck at the Lazy E. Look for him to make up for it this weekend.
