LAS VEGAS - Trevor Brazille has done it again. The Texas native who has dominated rodeo for more than a decade took home his 10th all-around title in 11 years at the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas. Brazille has a lead of over $130,000 over the second place Bareback Rider Bobby Mote. Even if Brazille doesn't earn a single penny for the rest of the week, and Mote wins every single go-round, Brazille would still end up with more winnings.
This is Brazille's 17th gold buckle, a new record and has solidified himself as one of the best of all-time. His seventh straight all-around gold buckle is also a new record, surpassing legends Tom Feguson and Tom Murray.
On the local level, Belgrade's Beau Clark, a former football player for Montana State, sits in 5th place in the average in Steer Wrestling. Clark's best performance of the week so far was in the 4th round when he earned 3rd place finish after his 3.7 second takedown.
The NFR continues all this week and into the weekend down in Las Vegas.
