Being innovative is just part of the brand at Pete Carr Pro Rodeo, and the Dallas-based livestock producer is taking another step in that direction with the 2017 Pete Carr Pro Rodeo Big Truckin' Series.

Contestants in each of the nine rodeo events -- bareback riding, steer wrestling, heading, heeling, saddle bronc riding, tie-down roping, barrel racing, bull riding and steer roping-- will be part of the 13-event series of Carr rodeos, beginning with the Parker County Sheriff's Posse Frontier Days and PRCA Rodeo, which is took place last week in Weatherford, Texas.
 

Contestants who earn money at our rodeos from Weatherford to Hempstead (Texas) have a chance to win their respective events in the series," owner Pete Carr said, noting that the final rodeo of the series is set for Oct. 5-7. "The event winners at the end of the series will win a Rtic cooler and will get to draw for a RAM 1500 pickup.
 
The cooler presentation and pickup drawing will take place Saturday, Oct. 14, at the Rusk County PRCA Rodeo in Henderson, Texas.
 
"We're going to keep track of the standings on our website, PeteCarrProRodeo.com," Carr said.
 
"I'm pretty excited about this series and what it means for the contestants and those rodeo committees. We have a lot of great rodeo committees we're involved with each year, and I think it's great they will be part of the series."
 
Dollars equal points, so the contestants in each discipline with the most money won during the series will earn the Rtci coolers and the opportunity to be on site in Henderson for the pickup drawing.
