The King of Rodeo is Canadian
Nick Market of Windsor, Ontario, beat four other finalists to win the title of Case Rodeo Series North American Champion. Along with the title, Mr. Market was awarded the grand prize - a 50th Anniversary limited-edition Case 580 Super M Series 2 loader/backhoe.
From a field of 4200 operators from across the United States and Canada, Nick Market joined top five finalists Jeff Coble, Dennis Drake, Corey Jessen and Tim Reynolds on March 11 at CONEXPO-CON/AGG for the Championship competition.
"Nick is a superb loader/backhoe operator - the best of the best in North America," said Jim Hughes, brand marketing manager, Case Construction Equipment, and manager of the Case Rodeo Series. "Even under the pressure of some stiff competition and hundreds of spectators watching him, Nick never wavered. That's the sign of a true champion."
An equipment operator with Sherway Contracting in Windsor, Nick Market led the pack of finalists with a score of 340,37. He has been operating loader/backhoes for nearly 30 years and won the Case rodeo event held at Kucera Farm Supply in Alinston, Ontario.
"The skills demonstrated by the 77 loader/backhoe operators were impressive," said Jim Hughes, "We crowned Nick Market as the Case Rodeo Series North American Champion, but we also honor all 77 local rodeo winners for their expertise."
The rodeo completes Case's year-long celebration of the 50th anniversary of the first factory-integrated tractor loader/backhoe manufactured by Case.
