There were a couple of spills and plenty of thrills as the Harvey County Fair ran off the inaugural ATV Rodeo on Monday night. While the event didn't feature quite the same amount of fireworks as the Demolition Derby held in the arena the night prior, competitors in the rodeo (divided into two age divisions for each type of vehicle) provided their fair share of electric moments in the two types of featured ATV/Motocross races, pole and barrel.

Right away, the head-to-head competition delivered as Sam Unruh and James Baldwin were neck-and-neck in the second championship heat of the night for 14 and over Motocross pole racing. Those two also battled it out for the championship in 14-plus Motocross barrel racing, with Baldwin coming out victorious both times.

Ivan Gutierrez and Caleb Schimdt followed with their own tight championship race in the 13 and under ATV pole races, while Jon Nordstedt got in a rhythm and never slowed down on his way to the title in the 14-plus ATV division, despite the all-out-efforts of Jordan Nice (who took a tumble in the pit area during the semifinals).

In barrel racing, the intricacies of the event proved treacherous for some, but James Baldwin and Chris Altum (13U Motocross) both repeated as champions, while Toby Spreier bested Gutierrez in the 13U ATV division. It was a race Gutierrez could've won, but his actions in that final did earn him the sportsmanship award of the night (and an extra $20). Taking the final title of the night was Matt Jarrell in the 14-plus ATV barrel races.
