It’s been a couple years since Cash Myers last competed in the CINCH Timed Event Championship. It’s been a half dozen years since he was a regular.
On Friday afternoon, He roped, wrestled and tied five animals in 51.8 seconds to win the opening go-round of this year’s “Ironman of ProRodeo.” For that, he earned $3,000. What’s even bigger is that he owns a 13.3-second lead over the No. 2 man, Trevor Brazile.
But Brazile is the only seven-time winner of the Timed Event, and there are four more go-rounds remaining. Myers isn’t comfortable with his lead, but he’s happy with his start to this year’s championship.
First round: 1. Cash Myers, 51.8 seconds, $3,000; 2. Trevor Brazile, 65.1, $2,000; 3. Russell Cardoza, 67.7, $1,000.
