Tina Grady Barbaccia | July 11, 2011
As part of the Case Triple Threat Rodeo Competition for 2011, Case distributor Trekker is hosting rodeos at four of its branches.
The competitions are at Tampa on July 15, West Palm Beach on Aug. 19, Miami on Sept. 16, and Orlando on Oct. 14. Heavy equipment operators are competing at Case dealerships throughout the U.S. this year to vie for a chance to win a new Case compact track loader and a Ram truck during the North American Triple Threat Rodeo Championship Event at the 2012 World of Concrete tradeshow.
The winner of each local rodeo will be awarded a trip for two to the championship in Las
Vegas, January 2012, plus $500 cash and a commemorative Triple Threat Rodeo belt buckle.
“We are looking forward to the rodeos,” says Ronald Miller, vice president of Trekker Tractor. “These events give local equipment operators a chance to show off the skills they hone every day on the job in competitions that will involve Case loader backhoes, wheel loaders and skid steers.”
Second and third place winners at each rodeo will receive $250 and $100, respectively, a
commemorative Triple Threat Rodeo belt buckle, and a chance to become one of five wildcard entries in the championship event. All participants receive a Case Triple Threat Rodeo hat and T-shirt.
Entrants may compete individually or in teams of two and can only compete in one Triple Threat
Rodeo at one dealership location.
