For The Record: Oakley City

by Matt Naber | Jul 04, 2018

Centrally located in most of the Cowboy Christmas action is the Oakley Independence Day Rodeo in Oakley City, Utah. Since 1984, this rodeo has played an increasingly significant role in the PRCA's hottest time of the season. 

Oakley Cityhas hosted some of the biggest names in the PRCA, but only the best cowboys leave their mark in the Oakley City record book. Cowboys will have from July 4-7 to win their share of the prize money and possibly top one of Oakley City’s records. 

Oakley City’s biggest payout was $176,640 in 2016. 

Trevor Brazile set the Oakley City record for most money won in all-around with $4,195 between tie-down roping and team roping in 2017. 

Bareback rider Steven Peebles set the Oakley City record of 88 points in 2011. 

Steer wrestler Dean Gorsuch set the Oakley City record of 3.3 seconds in 2006. 

Three sets of team ropers share the Oakley City record of 4.1 seconds. Kaleb Driggers and Junior Nogueira, and John Alley and Clark Adcock set the record in 2016. Then in 2017, Charly Crawford and Joseph Harrison tied the record. 

Oakley City’s saddle bronc riding record is a bit unusual. Billy Etbauer’s 89-point ride is the only record set before the rodeo moved to its current facility in 2005. Since moving, the highest-scored saddle bronc riding score is 88 points, which was set by Scott Miller (2010), Bryan Martinat (2013) and Zeke Thurston (2015). 

Both Marcos Costa and Matt Shiozawa hold the Oakley City tie-down roping record of 6.8 seconds, set in 2016. 

Barrel racer Kelly Larson set the Oakley City record of 14.86 second in 2012. 

Bull rider Scottie Knapp set the Oakley City record of 93 points in 2014.
