Josh Peek, Pueblo, Colo.
Josh Peek is a proven winner, a six-time qualifier to the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo and five-time competitor in this invitation-only Timed Event Championship.
Just two years removed from the title he earned in this arena, the Colorado cowboy has earned $87,000 in his four previous trips to this majestic rodeo palace. Sure, $58,000 came with his 2010 title, but the other $29,000 proves he is a contender every time he nods his head.
Last March, he left the Lazy E Arena with a $7,500 check for finishing fifth in the average. Still, he had a solid 2011 campaign in the PRCA, where he won 13 rodeo titles, eight of which were all-around championships. But he didn’t get to play for the biggest pay in ProRodeo, the NFR. In 2009, he won the all-around title in Las Vegas, finishing fifth in the average in both tie-down roping and steer wrestling.
He’d like to return to ProRodeo’s grand finale, but he’s got some other business to tend to first. The 32-year-old cowboy would like to have his name listed among the greats in the game, whether it’s in the ProRodeo Hall of Fame or as a multiple winner of the Timed Event.
The latter can be accomplished this weekend. That’s just one of the many reasons the 25 runs made in this arena will be magical.
