Rene and Orbit Damon AKA Obie are a long time pair in the barrel racing community. They are one of the teams that always work together every time they enter the arena. In May Rene and Obie turned it up a notch and lit up the arena with to make the Top 3 and qualify for the BOTB.
I remember Clea and I sitting at Becky’s trailer listening to see who got in that day and when we heard Rene’s name we were grinning from ear to ear! Congrats Rene and Obie and you too Scott, we know how proud you are of them!
We hope you enjoy the race and the show and thank you for being apart of this special weekend. Love having you!
