Carbon County Rubber Check Race prepares for inaugural season at Encampment rodeo grounds

It's a crazy race with horsepower on four legs, four wheels and a wheelbarrow.

The inaugural Carbon County Rubber Check Race will take place at Encampment -Riverside Lions Club Rodeo Arena on Saturday, June 29.

Samantha Buffington, event organizer, said this is a relay race with a challenge.

“It is a ranch relay which consists of four teams,” Buffington said. “The goal is to get the batton across the finish line as fast as possible. There are two horse riders with a rider on a four-wheeler and a guy pushing a wheelbarrow. These contestants must do it in under two minutes, so it's fast.”
