Purity Oilfield Services will sponsor the first annual Truck Rodeo tomorrow at the Purity Yard grounds in Williston, North Dakota. Gates open at 9 AM, and the action starts at 11 AM. The competition itself consists of three events, and the winner will be awarded $1000 cash and a champion belt buckle. Second and third place prizes will also be awarded, $500 and $250 respectively. All proceeds from the event go to local charities including Williston schools, Veterans of Foreign Wars, Ekhert Boys Home, and Future Farmers of America.
In addition to the competition itself, other activities planned for the day include free t-shirts, musical entertainment, inflatables and games for kids, a dunking booth, and lots of free food. Several companies will have big service trucks to view, inside and out, so those who normally only see oilfield equipment from afar can get up close and view the big trucks. Williston Mayor Howard Klug will speak between 10:30 and 11:30 AM.
“The whole idea is to give back to the community,” said Purity Oilfield Services Director of Safety Rick Rodgers. He said they wanted to thank the people who have helped make their business grow and gain success over the past two years. “We’ve seen amazing growth. In the last year, we’ve grown from 12 vehicles and 30 people working here to 140 employees and 80 vehicles.”
Purity Oilfield Services home office is located in Williston, North Dakota. The company provides rental items, trucking services, water solutions, and more. Oilfield services seems to be the part of the operations that doesn’t get much glory, but without these guys, the job wouldn’t get done. “We do everything from oil well servicing to frac tank cleaning. We’re an integral part of oil operations.”
