Kyle Crow, of Eads, surprised everyone at the Kiowa County Fair last year when he accepted a challenge to ride a wild horse in the Bronc-Riding competition. He managed to stay on for the required 8 seconds! This year, Crow has started out riding the broncs again, as he won the first round on Friday night in Las Animas. Crow says he’s going to compete in other local rodeos through the rest of this summer season.
Justin Lenox of Eads, Colorado ventured over to Syracuse, Kansas to compete in front of a packed arena in the Hamilton County Demolition Derby on July 23, 2016. Lenox has spent the past year building his car to get it competition-ready, and all that work became worth it on this night. Lenox's car was a 1977 Lincoln Continental. He was drawn into heat one along with six other competitors and had good luck driving well to qualify for the full size car feature directly out of the heat, instead of having to go through a consolation heat.
