With the sweepstakes getting ready to kick off, most of the ground issues that plagued barrel racers the first two days have been worked out. Even more, most have managed to figure out how to land the Congress’s infamous first barrel. The second go of the sweeps saw some of the fastest runs of the week, with it seemed like nearly everybody landing somewhere in the 15s. After a bad fall in the first go, Ohio’s Kelly Pitts clocked 15.4 to make it to the short go. Pennsylvania’s Shana Simmons time of 15.3 also held her in place for the finals from the first go. Stay tuned for finals updates!
