That Famous Preston Night Rodeo is shaping up to another grand event with another locally sponsored sheep versus kid event, an award winning announcer and a specialty act that brings down the house wherever he goes.
Ron Keller Tire is sponsoring the Muttin Bustin again this year. Signups will be Saturday, July 19, at Ron Keller Tires starting at 8 a.m. There will need to be one parent per one child who wants to ride. Requirements are that the child must be three-six years old and weigh less than 50 pounds.
Keller’s has sponsored the event for 25 years.
Wayne Brooks, the PRCA 2005, 2010 and 2014 Announcer of the Year and the caller at the 2013 National Finals Rodeo, will be behind the microphone at That Famous Preston Night Rodeo this year. Rodeo Committee member Kris Beckstead said he was selected because he is the best of the best in the rodeo industry.
“Brooks is the kind of caliber we want at our rodeo. He’s at the top in the industry,” Beckstead said. “And more important, he’s heard about our rodeo and is excited to come to Preston.”
He has an impressive resume of announcing big time rodeos from as far south as Tucson, Ariz. and as far north as the famed Calgary Stampede in Canada.
Brooks brings a fresh enthusiasm to rodeos across the country. Like many other top announcers, Brooks started out as a cowboy at a rodeo and worked his way to the top of his field.
The rodeo committee also selected Troy Lerwill as the specialty act for this year’s rodeo. They have been watching Lerwill for several years and finally were able to sit down with him and sign him for That Famous Preston Night Rodeo.
