Flundra Cashes in on May Long

REDDING, California — It’s been a couple years since Dustin Flundra has qualified for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. After a win at the Redding Rodeo and a tie for third at the Wrangler Champion’s Challenge concluding the weekend, Flundra is inside the top 15.

Putting together the $4,621 from the rodeo with the $1,600 for the split of third (with Luke Butterfield) at the Champion’s Challenge, it added over $6,000 to his season earnings taking him up to 14th in PRCA’s World Standings.

That now gives us two saddle bronc riders inside the top 15 as Tyrel Larsen hold steady in the eighth spot with $27,000 on the year. Sam Kelts and Luke Butterfield are 22nd and 28th respectively.

Kyle Bowers is on a mission this year, from what I can see his focus is on winning another Canadian Championship and getting himself back to the NFR as well. Bowers won the Las Vegas Helldorado Days Rodeo with an 83 on a Flying U bucking horse with no name but the number -707, sounds like a lucky one for Vegas. For his efforts, Bowers earned $2,938 pushing his season earnings to over $15,000 moving him to the 18th spot in the world standings.

Luke Creasy made a ton of miles and picked up checks at Luxton, Vegas, Redding and also in Vernon, TX. The largest one was for $640 in Redding and they all totalled $1,393. Creasy now has a season total of nearly $20,000 and he sits in the 12th spot in the world. Jake Vold hold strong in 9th place with $24,713 on the year. Orin Larsen, Clint Laye and Kody Lamb all sit inside the top 25.

Timed event specialist and reigning Canadian High Point Champion Morgan Grant won checks in both events totaling $3,828 ($2,614-TD, $1,214-SW) between Vegas, Redding and Ramona. Grant tied for eighth in the Tie Down in Vegas; won money in both a round and the aggregate in the Tie Down in Redding and picked up checks in both events in Ramona.

Fellow Steer Wrestler Clayton Moore earned a check worth $759 in Redding. Moore’s artwork was featured on this year’s poster for the 96th Falkland Stampede. The Pouce Coupe, BC cowboy currently sits 23rd in the PRCA’s World Standings. Matthew Mousseau is 39th while Curtis Cassidy is 43rd and 2013 NFR Qualifier Straws Milan is now 47th.

Deb Guelly rounded out our Canadian placing contestants south of the 49th. Guelly placed fourth in Redding for a check worth $1,939, she also picked up $586 in Luxton for a similar fourth place finish.
