LAS VEGAS -- JoJo LeMond and reigning World Champion Heeler Randon Adams stopped the clock at the Thomas & Mack Center in 3.4 seconds to lower the PRCA team roping world record by one-tenth of a second in Round 9 of the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. That record lasted all of five minutes.
Five runs later, reigning World Champion Header Chad Masters and Jade Corkill thrilled the 17,484 fans in attendance with a blistering 3.3-second run to snatch away the world record and solidify their positions atop a highly competitive team roping heap in the race for world titles. The win moved Masters and Corkill to eighth place in the Wrangler NFR average and boosted their season earnings by $17,139 apiece.
Masters leads the heading standings with $167,004, with Luke Brown in second place with $146,079, and Corkill leads the heeling world standings $157,532-$140,311 over Michael Jones. It was the first round victory of the 10-day event for Masters and Corkill, who set PRCA regular-season earnings records for their event this year.
"I can't believe it," Corkill said of the world-record run. "I've seen most of the 3.5s that held the record, and I didn't think it could get any faster. And then to see JoJo and Randon's run, I sure didn't think it could ever get faster than that, let alone just five or six teams later. I knew we were fast, but I didn't dare think we were that fast. No matter what happens tomorrow, this has been the greatest year I could ever imagine having. It means everything to me to hold those records, and after having something like that happen tonight, if it's meant to happen, it's going to happen."
Masters and Corkill will have to contend with Wrangler NFR average leaders Brown and Martin Lucero, who stand second and sixth, respectively, in the world standings, as well as the teams of LeMond/Adams (sixth and fifth in the world, fourth in the average), David Key/Rich Skelton (third and fourth in the world, sixth in the average) and Nick Sartain/Kollin VonAhn (fifth and fourth in the world, second in the average).
"I just know we had to win tonight, and we'll need to win more tomorrow to have a chance for the title," Masters said. "I'm sure we'll have to win another round tomorrow to have a shot. I just hope we don't have to be nearly that fast again."
J.W. Harris, who suffered a broken right (riding) hand in the second round, has not earned a check at this year's Wrangler NFR, but with Corey Navarre and Kanin Asay both bucking off their Round 9 draws, he clinched his second consecutive gold buckle. Harris, of May, Texas, attempted to ride Rosser Rodeo's Hawaiian Ivory in the ninth performance, but was bucked off. His $219,275 in earnings is far enough ahead of Navarre ($149,010) and Asay ($143,864) to make Harris the first back-to-back world champion bull rider since Blue Stone won consecutive gold buckles in 2001 and 2002.
"Heck, I’m living a dream," said Harris, who will not ride in Round 10 and will have surgery to repair his broken hand in the offseason. "This is something you want to do from the time you are a kid – is to win as many gold buckles as you can. I actually wasn’t too worried. If they caught me, they caught me. They have this thing every year. I’m still young, so I have to keep a positive attitude about it. This is bull riding, it happens. It’s all the hard work throughout the year. It just proves that rodeo is 365 days a year. You have to go all year, and I did give myself a cushion in case something did happen I would be all right."
Harris is the first bull rider to win a world title without a qualified ride at the Wrangler NFR since Freckles Brown in 1962 and is the first titlist to earn a gold buckle without earning money at the national finals since Bill Nelson in 1971.
"I hoped I could keep my hand closed," Harris said of his Round 9 ride. "At the time, they had a chance to catch me, I thought. I had to try to do something. I kept my hand closed that was for darn sure, but I just couldn’t stay on him."
Cody Hancock, the 2000 world champion, won the round with an 89.5-point ride on Lancaster & Pickett's Balistic, but was knocked unconscious when the bull's horn struck the side of his head as the whistle blew. He was carted out of the arena on a body board and taken to a Las Vegas hospital. He was conscious and responsive before leaving the Thomas & Mack Center, and it was announced he had suffered a concussion.
Bobby Welsh leads the Wrangler NFR average standings with 398.5 points on five head, while Asay (341 points/four head) and Navarre (320/four) are also in the average hunt.
Trevor Brazile will have to wait another day to officially secure his record-tying seventh all-around gold buckle. Josh Peek remained mathematically alive in the race for the world title by earning $7,280 in the steer wrestling to Brazile's $1,382 in the tie-down roping. Brazile, of Decatur, Texas, has earned $326,046 to Peek's $210,789, and Peek needs to win both the steer wrestling and tie-down roping in Round 10, and have a number of other factors fall into place to give him both average titles and a chance at the gold buckle.
The buzz saw that is Bobby Mote kept buzzing in Round 9. The Culver, Ore., cowboy won for the third time in the last four rounds to put himself in the driver's seat for his third world title thanks to an 86.5-point ride on Calgary Stampede's Coconut Roll. That was 1.5 points better than the score of Kaycee Feild and kept Mote in the lead in the Wrangler NFR average race.
PRCA World Standings leader Clint Cannon finished out of the money with a 78.5-point ride, and his 10th place average standing heading into the final round won't be enough to hold off Mote without some help. Cannon leads the world standings with $266,585, with Mote in second with $249,125. Mote is excited to be eight seconds away from another gold buckle a year after he finished second to Justin McDaniel for the world championship.
"That’s definitely what has been on my mind all year and all of last year," said Mote, who has earned an event-best $78,786 in Las Vegas. "Last year, I had a chance and made a mistake, so I’ve had 365 days to think about it. I just have to treat tomorrow just like any other day. As easy as that sounds, I’m sure it won’t be that easy. I’m just going to have to go out, get a good spur out, make a good ride and let everything take care of itself."
Mote credited good draws and health for propelling him to his current hot streak.
"I’ve been blessed, and I can’t say it any other way because you’ve got the Top 15 best guys in rodeo here and the top horses, and there’s a lot of variables," Mote said. "To be able to come to the NFR is a great thing in and of itself, but to win go-rounds here is a quite a feat itself. To get to win (multiple rounds) like this, I can’t take much credit for it. I’ve had the opportunities and have been healthy enough to take advantage of them, so I’m having fun."
The two-man race for the steer wrestling world title got a considerable amount tighter in Round 9. Reigning and two-time World Champion Luke Branquinho finished second in the round with a 3.5-second run -- Casey McMillen won the round in 3.3 seconds -- to close the gap to less than $900 between himself and 2005 World Champion Lee Graves. Branquinho, of Los Alamos, Calif., earned $13,546 for second place, while Graves' 3.8-second time was good enough for a tie for third place and a $7,280 check.
Heading into the final round, Graves leads the PRCA World Standings with $196,849, and Branquinho is nipping at his heels with $196,039. That $810 difference will be resolved, one way or another, in Round 10, as Branquinho leads the Wrangler NFR average with a 37.5-second total time and Graves ranks third in 41.6 seconds. Branquinho has earned an event-best $83,486 at this year's Wrangler NFR, while Graves has added $76,275 to his season earnings in Las Vegas.
McMillen's has placed in each of the last three rounds and earned his first round victory of the 2009 Wrangler NFR.
"It feels awesome," McMillen, of Craig, Colo., said of earning his first career Wrangler NFR round win. "It feels awesome. I've been here for three years now, and it's always been a dream. Obviously, I'd like a gold buckle, but you want to come here and win go-rounds and have a good Finals, and I've never really done that. It took getting on Gunner - a new horse (to me), but he's been here a lot -- and ever since I've been on him, I've been placing and tonight I won the round. He just gives you that extra little advantage.
"The steer I had tonight, they hadn't really gotten a good start on him. They'd been a little off the barrier, and they've run him out there and been 6.3 and 5.1. I didn't really know what to expect with the steer, but with that horse giving you a go right there so you can take care of business, it makes any steer good."
If Wrangler NFR rookie Jesse Kruse is going to win his first world title, he's going to have to earn it the hard way in Round 10. Kruse, of Great Falls, Mont., was bucked off Beutler & Son Rodeo's Drop Out, while 2006 Wrangler NFR average champ J.J. Elshere won the round and $17,139 to move into second place in the PRCA World Standings. Kruse leads the standings with $169,309 and is fifth in the Wrangler NFR average, while Elshere stands second in the world standings ($153,068) and fourth in the Wrangler NFR average race.
Elshere's win, which was his third round victory of the 10-day event, came via an 86-point ride on Frontier Rodeo's Griz. His score was one point more than Taos Muncy and Dustin Flundra.
"They call this the eliminator pen because they’re the ones that are really hard to ride," said Elshere, who did not win any rounds when he won the Wrangler NFR average in 2006. "The one I had, he didn’t quite match up with the rest of them. He was just a really good horse to ride."
Round 10 will be a ride-off, as third-ranked Cody DeMoss ($134,078) leads the Wrangler NFR average race with 725 points on nine head and will play a role in the gold buckle battle.
"You try to block (the pressure of contending for a title) out, but it is in the back of your mind," Elshere said. "You just go out and do what you can. I feel a lot more relaxed at this (Wrangler NFR). I feel like I’m drawing a lot better, too. I think that is mainly it. There is a reason all these guys are here. They have been riding well all year. It doesn’t matter if you’re first or 15th, any of them can win."
Tie-down roping ended at a tie for the No. 1 spot in Round 9, with Clint Robinson and Justin Maass each stopping the clock in 7.3 seconds. The duo pocketed $15,343 apiece, and Robinson has won an event-best $56,072 in Las Vegas.
"Man, it was big," Robinson said of his tie for first place in the round. "I started the week off running some good calves. In the middle of the week, I got some tricky ones and some kickers. You can't let them beat you up out here. You're going to get good ones, you're going to get bad ones. I kind of let a couple of them get me out of my rhythm, and tonight he didn't do that. I don’t think I'm in the race as much as everyone thinks, even if I am second in the world. But I'm going to go at them tomorrow and see what happens."
Robinson stands second in the world standings behind Brazile ($167,610) with $147,805, but is 11th in the average race heading into Round 10. Brazile stands fifth in the average race, but will have to keep an eye on five-time World Champion Cody Ohl, who is fifth in the world standings and third in the Wrangler NFR average race. Tuf Cooper leads the average with a 76.9-second total time and needs a 7.0-second run in the final round to break Fred Whitfield's Wrangler NFR average record of 84.0 seconds from 1997.
Maass was thrilled to break through and earn his first round win of the event.
"It's really good," said Maass, of Giddings, Texas. "You go from thinking, 'Man, Christmas isn't going to be nearly as good for the little one,' to it being a completely different story. I was just trying to be as fast as I could be. I knew it was going to be a tough round, the calves were good, and I just tried to go as fast as I could."
Cassie Moseley won her second round of the 2009 Wrangler NFR with a 13.74-second run and crossed the $100,000 mark for the season with her $17,139 first-place check. She also won Round 4 and is seventh in the world standings with $109,475.
"He was just firing tonight," Moseley said of her horse, Mitey Man. "He gets that adrenaline rush, and it makes him kind of lock down in the alley, and I thought that was a sign he would run well. The average is gone for me, and I truly have nothing to lose. I will just ride as hard as I can and see what I can get done tomorrow night. This has been a great week, and I am just thrilled to be a part of it."
Reigning World Champion Lindsay Sears' streak of placing in 16 consecutive rounds at the Wrangler NFR came to an end in Round 9, as she finished with a time of 14.12 seconds, two-hundredths out of sixth place. The Nanton, Alberta, cowgirl continues to lead the Wrangler NFR average with a total time of 125.12 seconds and sits second in the world standings behind 2007 World Champion Brittany Pozzi, who finished second in Round 9 in 13.88 seconds.
Pozzi, of Victoria, Texas, leads Sears by $8,750 ($241,009-$232,259) in the world standings and is third in the Wrangler NFR average race.
