Trevor Brazile just beat his own record.
On Saturday night during the final five rounds of the Clem McSpadden National Finals Steer Roping, Brazile clinched his 25th world championship, his seventh Montana Silversmiths gold buckle in steer roping.
After Friday’s opening night, he had placed in four go-rounds and led the average most of the way, pocketing $17,364 in the process. Brazile led the world standings heading into The Clem, then kept his foot on the pedal through the weekend.
He finished the weekend by placing in six go-rounds and winning the average, earning $56,708 at the arena in Mulvane, Kansas. He finished his year with $128,553.
It was a two-man race most of the weekend between Brazile and Vin Fisher Jr., whose big hiccup came with a no-time on Friday. Still, Fisher had the best financial weekend of them all. He won three rounds, placed in four others and finished second in the average. He won $60,988 at The Clem.
Fisher finished the year as the reserve world champion with $120,832. It is the best year he’s ever had regarding earnings.
