BOWMAN -- Abe Dillman's dominance in the Badlands Circuit has been widespread this year. The Grassy Butte bull rider is already beginning to see some carry over into the 2013 season after winning the Bowman County Rodeo last weekend.

Dillman had an 84-point ride on J Bar J Rodeo's Charlie Sheen to win the rodeo, which counts toward next year's Badlands Circuit standings. He will take a sizeable lead into the Badlands Circuit Finals on Oct. 4-7 in Minot.

The Bowman County Rodeo did count toward the 2012 world standings, however, and a handful of contestants took advantage of the money on the line.

Troy Crowser of Whitewood, S.D., had an 84 on Julia in the saddle bronc riding to beat Clay Schaeffer of Dickinson, who had an 82. Though he won $1,655 for the ride, Crowser still sits 19th in the world standings after the weekend, which is about $9,300 short of the No. 15 rider Isaac Diaz.

The top 15 contestants in each event qualify for December's National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas.

Jet Price of Buffalo, S.D., had the highest-scoring roughstock ride with an 87 on Outcast.

Dickinson's Sheldon Portwine won the average in the steer wrestling with a combined 8.9 seconds on two head. Portwine, who was second in the first round with a 4-second turn, takes the lead into the Badlands Circuit Finals.
