By Whitney Grunder - bio | email

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE)- A different kind of rodeo took place Saturday. Instead of bull riding, this rodeo was all about bus riding.

Bus drivers from Lufkin, Tyler and Nacogdoches competed for the best time and performance on an obstacle course set up in the Lufkin High School stadium parking lot.

Drivers demonstrated parallel parking, student pick up, and procedure stops.

Three winners from three divisions, conventional, transit, and special needs will move on to the State Competition in June.
