One of five planned events by the Lincoln Economic Development Association as part of Industry Appreciation Month, the Forklift Rodeo is a crowd favorite. Thirteen men and one woman representing thirteen industries throughout Lincoln County, competed for the title of Grand Champion. Hosted by RSI and sponsored by Vesco Toyotalift, the bracketed competition resulted in three men and one woman competing for the top three positions. In the end, it was Jim Weaver with the Timken Company who finished the race first with a record time for the day of less than two minutes. Ramsey Magness with HOF Textiles was first runner-up and Mike Nichols with Lucky Country finished third. Honorable mention is extended to Alexa McClenon, with Active Concepts, who finished in the top four.
