(April 19, 2015) — Like many stops on the PRCA circuit, the Walker County Fair & Rodeo in Huntsville earlier this month had a strong Erath County flare.
Stephenville cowboy Trent Walls won the tie-down roping and $2,313, while brothers Sterling and Jacobs Crawley were at the top of the saddle bronc riding. Sterling won with an 81-point ride on Stace Smith Pro Rodeo’s “Hickock,” pocketing $1,086, while Jacobs tied for second with 79 points, earning $707.
Former Tarleton cowboy Richmond Champion scored 84 points in Huntsville to place second in the bareback riding for $799.
Erath County cowgirl Kelly Allen had the fastest ride in the barrel race, completing the course in 17.14 seconds to win $1,357. Allen also won last weekend’s CC5D barrel race at Lone Star Arena, riding Charge My Corona to a blistering 15.018, the fastest of 673 rides in the event. She has the fastest CC5D run of the year so far, yet was only 45-thousandths of a second faster than Kim Randle, who placed second last weekend with a time of 15.063 aboard Lil Red Tornado.
Note: The Flash Today will have a story later this week featuring barrel racer Kelly Allen and the CC5D event at Lone Star Arena.
