Muncy owns two Professional Cowboy Rodeo Association world championships in saddle bronc riding. He has qualified for the NFR five times and is also competing in his fifth National Circuit Finals Rodeo.

He has never won a circuit national championship but is off to a great start with a score of 85 points Thursday to capture the first go-round.

“I had a week off so I was a little nervous getting on today,” Muncy said. “I am glad to get the first one out of the way and hopefully everything keeps going good the rest of the week.”

SURVIVE AND ADVANCE

The 24 contestants in each event of the National Circuit Finals Rodeo will compete in two rounds.

Half of the field competed Thursday afternoon while the other half competed on Thursday night.

The same format is followed for Friday's 7:30 p.m. performance and Saturday's 1 p.m. performance.

The top eight in each event after those four go-rounds qualify to Saturday's championship beginning at 7:30 p.m. where the slate is wiped clean.

From those eight, the top four cowboys or cowgirls from Saturday night's first round advance to a final go-round where the slate is wiped clean again. The champion is determined from the best score or time from the final four.
