NBHA MT5 Summer Update 2016


We had a great turnout for the 2016 Glacier Barrel Bash with a total of 586 races between the Friday night warm up race and the 2-go’s on Saturday including the Open, Youth & Senior classes.  We paid out a little over $18,960.00 & awarded about $3500.00 in awards. Full results can be found on the Results page.

The Target race winners were:
1st place Ireland Root with a .001 time difference, winning a M2 Sharin Hall Pro Series Saddle, which was donated by River Bend Ranch & BNI Barrel productions.

2nd, 3rd & 4th resulted in a 3-way tie between Carissa Stoner, Mandy Miessner & Crystal Dale with a .003 time difference, awards were a matching Breast collar/headstall set, an Ariat jacket (donated by Murdoch of Kalispell) & a NBHA vest.

5th place winner was Jessi Edwards with a .006 time difference, winning a painted skull, donated by Paige Leavitt.

6th place winner was Sunny Rae Haskins with a .020 time difference; she was awarded a Montana Silversmith bracelet.

Thank you to everyone who either made a donation or secured a sponsor for the Bash, it takes a lot of work to produce this race.  Shout out to everyone who rallied around to find workers!  Thank you to the office staff Nancy Howell, Jill Carpenter, Tammy Jo Carpenter, & Wendy McCaffree and to Lyle Potts for announcing for us again on Saturday. Thank you to Jenny Johnson and Michelle Luckow for handling the In gate and Taylor & Tannah Jakeway for handling the Out gate.  Thank you Megan Tutvedt for helping with the Time Onlys on Friday and being available to help out wherever I needed her to.


We have gotten off to a good start for our 2016 race season, but there is a lot of racing left with a possible 13 sanctioned MT 5 NBHA races.  Remember there are still 3 double  headers left, all 3 of the Fast & Furious series races June 25th, July 10th & September 24th are MT5 co-sanctioned along with The Glacier Chaser July 16th-17th (entrys due July 8th) and the 2nd Annual Western Ranch Rodeo barrel race. Reminder you must enter 4 Montana NBHA races to qualify for the Montana NBHA State Finals which will be held in Great Falls September 30th-October 2nd.  You must enter 8 NBHA MT5 races to qualify for a jacket at year end.  I hope everyone has a great but safe summer, see you all down the road.
