Your 2017 Guymon Pioneer Days Rodeo champion took some time to visit with us after her awesome win in Guymon where she pocketed a little over $5,000. Tracy successfully started off the 2017 rodeo year with winning the average at the Prairie Circuit Finals and continued on to the Ram National Circuit Finals in Kissimmee where she won the first round. Here are a few questions to get to know Tracy!
Hometown: Nowata, OK
What horses do you travel with?
DJG Madison and her barn name is Dolly Jo
What is your greatest accomplishment?
My son, Tyler Nowlin. Then it would be that I've been to IPRA finals 14 times, the first time when I was 13. I have been to the Prairie Circuit Finals 7 times, and winning the average this year was a dream come true, and also winning the first round at the D Ram Finals.
What's your favorite rodeo and why?
Pretty Prairie, KS. I have won it on 2 different horses and was first buckle I won in WPRA.
How do you prepare for different arenas?
I just look at the set up see how to run at the first barrel.
What thoughts are going through your head before going in the alley?
To just try to do my 3 step going into the barrel and not get in her way.
What is the hardest thing about rodeoing?
Being gone from home.
Favorite place to eat on the road?
I really don't have one just whereever my mom or Ty want to eat.
Least favorite place? No fish!
What buckle do you wear?
I wear 2 different buckles; my brother's IPRA World Champion 1988, he won it on Pacman. I loved that horse. And also a Lucky Dog Barrel Racing buckle that I won last year for the average.
What was it like to win Guymon?
The win at Guymon was cool because I won the All Around at Jr Rodeo when I was 11, and I haven't been again until this weekend. That was my first saddle I won so made it cool that I won it this year. And my son has always been in school so we couldn't go.
I would like to thank my family, Rosie Bradley, and Rachel Ganzkow for PHT Products.
Tracy is currently sitting 23rd in the WPRA world standings with $21,257.25 won and only competing at 13 rodeos. We wish you the best at the upcoming rodeos!
