Live from Las Vegas NFR 2011 Round 9 Results Round 10 Draw
Las Vegas, NV: We are less than an hour from when the first gate cracks at the NFR tonight. There are just two performances left to decide this years PRCA World Champions. JW Harris has been outstanding. I was able to tape an interview with he an Rick Thompson of TalkRodeo.com last night. He is on a mission. I’m not sure if I have ever seen anyone talk about goals as seriously with as much confidence as he did last night. He outright said he wanted to beat Donny Gay’s record of 8 World Bull Riding titles he also wants to win 6 in a row to beat Jim Shoulder’s record of 6 in a row.
I don’t think that I’ve ever heard anyone else talk about goals as lofty as JW’s. The way he stated them as well I absolutely believe he someday may beat both records. I am interested to talk to more of the bull riders about their goals to see what their focus is and if anyone else thinks they could pull of such a feat or if it’s even something that they want to do.
Lindsay Sears is now in the drivers seat of the barrel racing here at the NFR. She’s got the lead in the average by over 2 full seconds and two clean runs will make it tough for either Brittany Pozzi or Sheri Cervi to catch her.
The saddle bronc riding looks very interesting as well. It’s coming down to Taos Muncy and Jesse Wright. They are one and two in the average and the World Standings as well. This is when the Average payout comes into play big time.
