The WPRA barrel racers turned up the heat on Wednesday night, July19, with Kassie Mowry of Dublin, Texas, and Stevi Hillman, of Weatherford, Texas, finished 1-2 in time of 17.04 and 17.07, respectively. Both are hoping to get a share of the $50,000 to close the gap on No. 1 Tiany Schuster, who just won the Calgary Stampede and set a new WPRA regular season earnings record. Schuster was in the spotlight on Thursday night, July 20 were she punched her ticket to the finals round.

Having already smashed the WPRA regular season earnings record, Schuster continues to add to that total. She took top honors on Thursday night stopping the clock in 17.17 seconds to add another $3,200. More importantly she will be back on Monday to try and snag that $50,000 check that will be awarded to the winner. Times and scores from previous rounds will not carry forward so everyone starts with a clean slate on Monday. Ari-Anna Flynn will try to steal the show on Monday after taking second on the second night with 17.25 second run.
