With his victory in tie-down roping during the sixth round of the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo on Tuesday night, Trevor Brazile clinched the 2015 all-around world championship.
It is his second of this year – he won the steer roping title a month ago – and the 23rd gold buckle of his storied career. It also is his 13th all-around world title.
Brazile sits eighth in the heading world standings and second in tie-down roping. He trails brother-in-law Tuf Cooper by $8,500. Cooper is out of the average race, while Brazile is fourth. If he remains in that position, Brazile would add another $31,731 to his NFR earnings.
