Devon Harris of Logansport, Indiana, defeated nine others in a two-round shootoff to collect the grand prize in the Bill and Lee Ann Martin $100,000 Challenge at the Grand American Saturday, Aug. 14.

Harris broke 50 straight in shootoff to edge fellow back-fencer Denis L. Bringelson from New Raymer, Colorado, by two. Harris secured his place in the Challenge by breaking 99 in the Grand American Handicap on the final day of the tournament.

The other seven shooters who earned spots in the Challenge during the Grandís nine handicap events were Marvin Beumer of Augusta, Missouri; Tim Reed of Bath, South Dakota; Richard Kaysa, San Antonio, Texas; Leo Harrison III, New London, Missouri; Craig Blank, Xenia, Ohio; Steven Huber, Orwigsburg, Pennsylvania; and Steven Jennings, Attica, New York. Steve Stedman of East Palestine, Ohio, was the wild-card participant, chosen at random right before the Challenge shootoff was to begin.

The $100,000 Challenge was set up earlier this year through a cash donation from trapshooting enthusiasts and benefactors Bill and Lee Ann Martin of Vernal, Utah. During the presentation ceremony, the Martins made a surprise announcement that the other nine participants in the Challenge would each receive a check for $5,000. The Martins have already pledged $300,000 in prize money for next yearís tournament.
