BEMIDJI, Minn. - Local bus drivers ranked well in Minnesota's Statewide Bus "Roadeo."

The contest was held last Saturday in Bemidji. Regional roadeo winners from around the state competed against each other in exercises testing skill and accuracy in bus driving.

Metrobus's Ken Rakke and Jabin Scepurek placed first and second in the Large Bus category, respectively, and dial-a-ride driver Todd DeZurik placed third in the small bus division.

Rakke will now represent Minnesota in the International Bus Roadeo in Indianapolis next May.
