2020 Redneck Rodeo Rules:

First and Foremost - this is for FUN. 

This is the 1st time this has been done - remember that.  We aren’t sure how this is going to go but we are having fun putting it together for you.

All Vehicles must have a NAME (one that we can announce to grandstand audience)

  • Does not have to be on the vehicle just something that can be announced when running the course.(just like in rodeo).

  • Cars
  • Trucks
  • All must have only 4 wheels, enclosed doors and roof
  • (NO side by sides or 4-wheelers)
  • We have the right to refuse ANYONE from doing this event if we feel it is unsafe for you to participate with the vehicle you brought in.
  • The vehicle doing the event can be used multiple times, but EACH DRIVER must pay an entry fee.
  • All Vehicles must have a number on the Driver's Side - this can be in the window or on the car. (Get the white shoe polish out - that will work.)
  • Everyone under 18 must have a parent present to sign a consent form at the pit gate day of the event. You may drive with a "school permit" but your parent must sign the consent and be in the pits with you during the event.

  • Payout is 50% of the Entry Fees -  so more cars and trucks = more money we pay out - just like in barrel racing.
  • (WE HAVE ADDED MONEY!  So payout will be even more!)
