CEAT Sponsors Junior Rodeo Competitors Charly and Chaney Sellers

CEAT Specialty Tires is a proud sponsor of rodeo. We have met so many nice, hardworking families in this sport over the past three years.

We are especially proud to sponsor junior competitors, the future of the sport, and are thrilled to welcome sisters Charly and Chaney Sellers of Waurika, OK, to the CEAT team.

The Sellers girls, daughters of Jay and Christy Sellers, have been riding horses for most of their young lives and are very dedicated to the sport.

Charly is a high school freshman. She runs barrels, ties goats and is in breakaway. Like so many junior rodeo competitors, she excels in many areas. Charly plays basketball, is active in FFA, and serves on the livestock judging team. Despite all these activities, she’s also on the academic honor roll.

Her rodeo accomplishments include:

  • 2020 Junior High National Qualifier, barrel racing
  • 2020 Top 15, OKJRHSRA goat tying
  • 2021 Top 15, OKJRHSRA, ribbon roping, goats, barrel racing
  • 2021 BBR World Finals Youth barrel champion
  • 2022 Top 15, OKJRHSRA,  goat tying, ribbon roping, breakaway

Chaney is a 7th grader. She runs barrels, ties goats, competes in breakaway and does ribbon roping. She is a middle school cheerleader, plays basketball, is on the livestock judging team in 4-H, and is on the academic honor roll like her sister.

Chaney’s rodeo achievements include:  2019 MRCA Reserve All-around champion, 2019 MRCA goat tying champion and 2021 OKJHSRA Top 15 in goat tying.

CEAT Specialty Tires is the “Official Ag Tire Sponsor and Exclusive Category Event and Broadcast Partner” of the World Champions Rodeo Alliance (WCRA), Women’s Rodeo World Championship (WRWC) and the National High School Rodeo Association (NHSRA).

“I come from a farming family, so I know that equipment buying decisions including farm tires are not taken lightly,” said Ryan Loethen, president of CEAT Specialty Tires. “The wrong decision on tires can really set you back, and on the flip side, having the right tires for the equipment and operating conditions can significantly contribute to profitability. With these sponsorships, CEAT hopes to connect with the farmers and ranchers that comprise the backbone of the rodeo community and help them make the right decisions when it comes to their tire needs.

Loethen added, “We are especially pleased to sponsor outstanding young competitors like Charly and Chaney Sellers who represent everything great about this great sport!”
