postheadericon Great action so far in Claremore

We’ve had two days of competition at the Will Rogers Stampede, and we’ve seen possibly the second fastest barrel racing run in the 67-year history of the Claremore, Okla., rodeo – Wrangler National  Finals Rodeo qualifier Christy Loflin posted a time of 16.99 seconds on Thursday morning; reserve world champion Carlee Pierce posted a 16.96 in 2011 to set the arena record.

Pierce is in Claremore and will run tonight. She is the two-time reigning Will Rogers Stampede champion.

We’ve had a lot of fast runs in the timed events, and we’re just kickstarting this Carr Pro Rodeo/Pete Carr’s Classic Pro Rodeo production. Tonight, Bill Tutor will get his chance to ride the great horse Dirty Jacket, the runner-up reserve world champion bareback horse in 2012. We’ll also see a lot of great NFR-caliber animals perform over final two performances, set for 7:45 p.m. Saturday-Sunday.

But you can get a glimpse of the goings-on in the behind-the-scenes photos from the first two days. Click on the photo below, and you’ll see them.
