Las Vegas Motor
Speedway is 15 miles north of the Thomas & Mack
Center, but it may as well be home to the top 15
barrel racers in the world.
On Saturday night during the third go-round at the
Wrangler National Finals Rodeo, the sport's speedsters
put on quite a show in front of more than 17,000
people on hand to witness ProRodeo's grand finale.
The fastest of them all was a familiar face, Sherry
Cervi, a 13-time qualifier who owns two world championships.
Aboard MP Meter My Hay, her 8-year-old palomino
mare, Cervi circled the cloverleaf pattern in 13.65
seconds to win the round and collect a $17,512 paycheck.
"She felt good tonight," Cervi said of
Stingray. "Definitely we've made improvement
from the first run."
The tandem that worked so well throughout the regular
season finished off the pace Thursday night, posting
a 14.30-second run. Cervi entered the championship
No. 1 in the world standings with $182,676. Combined
with her sixth-place finish Friday night, Cervi
moved her 2010 earnings to $200,188. She is only
$14,843 away from being the first $2 million barrel
"She was focused tonight," Cervi said
of Stingray. "That's the one thing about her
is sometimes she starts acting like she's on a trail
ride. I've run her for two years now, but she'll
act like an inexperienced horse. She just happened
to do it at the NFR."
There were a plethora of quality runs, with five
of the top six ladies finishing their runs in less
than 14 seconds. Only Christina Richman of Glendora,
Calif., and Brenda Mays of Terrebonne, Ore., earned
money - they split sixth place with 14.06s.
But world champions reigned Saturday night. Lindsay
Sears, the 2008 World Champion from Nanton, Alberta,
finished second with a 13.75 aboard Sugar Moon Express,
a 10-year-old sorrel mare known as Martha. That
was worth $13,840. Jill Moody of Letcher, S.D. was
third with 13.83, followed by Kelli Tolbert of Hooper,
Utah, at 13.84 and Sydni Blanchard of Albuquerque,
N.M., at 13.96.
Through the speed that would be quite fitting on
the speedway, Cervi and Stingray put on a blistering
show. Cervi also extended her lead over Sears by
"Anytime you can win a round at the NFR it's
just awesome," Cervi said.
