Brazile poised to become career earnings record holder in Las Vegas

PRCA

Trevor Brazile seems to have a knack for coming up with something special for his closing act at the Thomas & Mack Center each year.

A year ago it was the first Triple Crown in 24 years, winning gold buckles in the steer roping, tie-down roping and all-around.

As the only competitor qualified in more than one event for this year’s 50th Wrangler National Finals Rodeo, Brazile is almost certain to become the fourth man to win six or more all-around gold buckles, but he is also in position to make another sort of history Dec. 4-13 in Las Vegas.

He needs $50,045 to surpass Joe Beaver as the ProRodeo career earnings leader and $121,560 to become the sport’s first $3 million cowboy.

A year ago he took home $139,704, competing in the tie-down roping and team roping.

And Brazile is not the only Wrangler NFR competitor on the verge of reaching a monetary milestone. Team roper Speed Williams is $30,053 away from becoming the 15th PRCA contestant to reach $2 million in career earnings and his fellow header Jake Barnes is within $80,798.
