Wyoming high points exuded from the arena floor at the T&M Center in Las Vegas last night long after the sixth round of the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo ended.

Seth Brockman of Wheatland was a steer wrestling money winner after placing for the first time after being shut out for five rounds. Seth had a 3-way tie with Shawn Greenfield & Casey Martin with a 4.0.

Bull riding traveling partners full of youthful exuberance, Seth Glause and Tyler Willis, rode the same  bull for big money(at different performances), last night that bull got Willis a 3rd place finish tying with Shane Proctor with an 86 point ride.

And Jhett Johnson of Casper is as happy a man as there is in Las Vegas after another fabulous team roping run with partner Turtle Powell, tying for 2nd with Matt Sherwood & Cory Petska with a 3.8.

What a great night of rodeo at the NFR. Bobby Mote won the bareback riding  with a huge ride on Classic Pro Rodeo’s great horse Wise Guy for 87 points.

The steer wrestling keeps getting more interesting and the team roping got really good tonight. It was extremely fast with 5 times in the 3 second range.

In the bronc riding Tyler Corrington of Hastings, Minnesota won his first round even after overcoming a hand injury which made him have to put one of his fingers through his rein.

The barrel racing is very interesting after tonight’s round with Lindsay Sears following Sheri Cervi in the average by just 25/100ths of a second. Brittany Pozzi leads the World Standings with $171,000 Lindsay Sears is in second at $149,000 and Sheri Cervi is just under $1,000 behind her. The final 4 nights will prove to be very interesting.

In the bull riding it was Chandler Bownds winning his second round. He’s stayed on two bulls and won the round both times.  During the intermission he was also presented the buckle as the 2011 Resistol Rookie of the Year.

JW Harris was bucked off last night. Jacob O’Mara is leading the average with Tyler Willis as the only other man to qualify on 4 bulls so far.

 

Here are the highlights from last night's performance of the NFR:
