Our plan for the weekend was to attend the Formula DRIFT Championship at the Irwindale Speedway and the Pro Rodeo at Industry Hills Expo Center. When we arrived at the Speedway on Saturday night, there was a huge sign saying that the event was sold out and since we didn’t buy tickets in advance, I guess we’ll just have to wait until next year.
Luckily, we were able to attend the Pro Rodeo and I was very excited since I had only seen something like this on TV. When I think rodeo, I think bull riding. But there was so much more to it with events like bareback bronc & saddle bronc riding, steer wrestling, team roping, and barrel racing. There were also performances from the Norco Equestrian Drill Team and a master trick rope artist. It was terribly hot that day that I was very happy that the arena was covered.
