Western Sports Weekly: Chuck Schmidt Overcoming Obstacles

Western Sports Weekly: Chuck Schmidt Overcoming Obstacles

November 19, 2015

NASHVILLE, Tenn (RFDTV) Chuck Schmidt knows all about overcoming obstacles and defying the odds. The Keldron, South Dakota cowboy qualified for his first National Finals in 2011 and nearly made it again in 2012, but wound up two spots out. He still pressed on spending most of 2013 on the road hunting down another trip to Las Vegas. Unfortunately, his dream was crushed once again that August in Alberta, Canada.

This year Schmidt has accomplished his goal, and with his large amount of determination he may be the man to beat. Schmidt finished the 2015 regular season ranked ninth in the world standings due to big wins such as Austin, Texas and the Cody Stampede. He also qualified for RFD-TV’s The American back in February. 

Schmidt’s earnings are now up to nearly $85,000, but we’re expecting to see him win a lot more by the end of December.
