Nick Market beat out four other finalists in the Case North American Rodeo Series Championship to earn the title of “Best Loader / Backhoe Operator in North America.” Market was also awarded the grand prize for his achievement, a 50th Anniversary limited edition Case 580 Super M Series 2 loader/backhoe valued at nearly $120,000.
Market, an equipment operator with Sherqy Contracting of Windsor, Ontario, was one of 4,200 contestants throughout the United States and Canada to compete in the North American Case Rodeo Series.
“Nick is a superb loader/backhoe operator – the best of the best in North America,” says Jim Hughes, brand marketing manager, Case Construction Equipment, and manager of the Case Rodeo Series. “Even under the pressure of some stiff competition and hundreds of spectators watching him, Nick never wavered. That’s the sign of a true champion.”
