Film crew has plenty of drama from DeMoss brothers in Dodge City

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO – A crew from Committee Films of Minneapolis has been following the DeMoss brothers since mid-June, hoping to sell a reality series about life on the rodeo road to the National Geographic Network or the History Channel.

They might want to change directions here and approach TNT, the We Know Drama folks.

Heith DeMoss has soared from 15th to fourth since the film crew showed up, and elder brother Cody has come all the way back from knee surgery to the top ranks of saddle bronc riding in less than two months.

For the second week in a row, Cody DeMoss didn’t just win a Wrangler Million Dollar Tour rodeo presented by Justin Boots, he made history in the process, at the Dodge City (KS) Roundup, Aug. 4-8.

He followed his arena-record 91-point ride at Cheyenne (WY) Frontier Days with an arena-record 92-pointer in the short go at Dodge City on Frontier Rodeo’s Medicine Woman. Heith DeMoss was second in the round and in the average (172-169).

“That is cool,” Cody DeMoss told the Dodge City Daily Globe. “Me and him – one and two – that’s a dream. He is one of the best bronc riders in the world. He is turning into a bronc rider. It is an honor to ride with him.”

Cody DeMoss was something of a longshot for the win going into the short round with an 80, the lowest score of those who qualified.

The $3,705 he earned for the win, along with another win at Iowa’s Championship Rodeo in Sidney, moved Cody DeMoss from 23rd to 21st place in the PRCA World Standings.

It makes a seventh appearance at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo suddenly a very real possibility, especially given that he has soared to 10th in the Wrangler Million Dollar Tour Standings and is a sure thing for the Justin Boots Playoffs.

Chad Masters and Jade Corkill won no rounds of the team roping, but were steady enough to win three-head average with a total time of 16.8 seconds. The $4,987 they earned at Dodge City helped move Masters to within about $3,000 of Turtle Powell for the lead among team roping headers. Corkill cut Cory Petska’s lead in the heeling standings from more than $14,000 to exactly $7,000 in one week.

The other champions at Dodge City were all-around cowboy Timber Moore ($8,177), bareback rider Wes Stevenson (171 points on two head), steer wrestler Olin Hannum (12.5 seconds on three head), tie-down roper Jerome Schneeberger (27.0 seconds on three head), barrel racer Jolene Montgomery (51.30 seconds on three runs) and bull rider Seth Glause (175 points on two head).
