Bingham wins Dodge City Xtreme

Twisted Rodeo - Wed, 07/30/2014 - 00:02

DODGE CITY, Kan. – Tim Bingham is on pace to qualify for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo for the first time in his young career.

On Tuesday night, Bingham took another step closer by claiming the championship at the inaugural Dodge City Roundup Xtreme Bulls at Roundup Arena. The Honeyville, Utah, cowboy pocketed $5,261 on Tuesday night, pushing his season earnings to $56,363. Just as importantly, he moved up one spot to seventh in the world standings.

“I’ve been in a similar position before, but not nearly what I am here,” said Bingham, who finished 20th in the 2012 standings, just five spots out of qualifying for the NFR, the sport’s year-end championship. “It’s pretty much a dream coming true before your eyes, and it’s not even finished yet.”

Bingham won the first round with an 86-point ride on Frontier Rodeo’s Centerfold, earning more than $1,500 for that. He then came back in the final round with an 85.5 on Frontier’s Swamp Dog; he finished second in the round behind Jordan Spears, who posted the highest marked ride of the night with an 89 on Frontier’s Kojack. Bingham’s two ride total of 171.5 was eight and a half points better than Spears, who had a 74 in the opening round.

“You have to be consistent enough to back up your first ride,” said Bingham, who has victories this season in Spanish Fork, Utah; Clovis, Calif.; San Francisco; Sisters, Ore.; Salt Lake City and Elizabeth, Colo. “That’s where I’ve been struggling. I can get my first ones rode, but I struggle in the short round. Finally I got a short-round bull covered and won.”

The Xtreme Bulls tour is a part of the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association. Money won not only counts toward the Xtreme Bulls standings but also the bull riding world standings. His Dodge City winnings will move Bingham from 48th to 23rd. He is in good position to qualify for the Xtreme Bulls Finals, which will take place Labor Day weekend in Ellensburg, Wash.

The bigger picture is the NFR qualification and a shot at the elusive world championship. Bingham knows he must follow a simple cliché of taking advantage of every ride and every opportunity, but he’s placed himself in great position heading into the final two months of the season.

He is scheduled to compete again Friday night during the third performance of the Dodge City Roundup Rodeo. A good showing later this week could make all the difference, and he has a pretty good track record in southwest Kansas.

“I’ve only ever been on one bull here and rode it, but I missed the short round,” he said, referring to Sunday night’s championship, which features the top 12 contestants from the preliminary rounds that take place Wednesday-Saturday. “I was one for one here, so now I’m three for three.”

It all adds up quite well inside Roundup Arena.
