Trevor Brazile takes early lead at National Finals Steer Roping

From Staff Reports Published: November 2, 2012

— Trevor Brazile placed in three go-rounds to take the lead after the first night of the Clem McSpadden National Finals Steer Roping at the Lazy E Arena.

“It makes you go to bed tonight with good thoughts when you come here to execute,” said Brazile, the three-time and reigning champion from Decatur, Texas. “It's far from over, but it lets you sleep better to do what you came here to do.”

Brazile holds a 9.6-second lead in the average over second-place J.P. Wickett, a 13-time NFSR qualifier from Sallisaw.

Two-time world champion Rocky Patterson of Pratt, Kan., leads the world standings with $70,855, but he's just $303 before Brazile. Vin Fisher Jr. of Andrews, Texas, is third with $68,042, while Cody Lee of Gatesville, Texas, is fourth, $67,399.

Fisher won two go-rounds on Friday night, while Patterson won one.

The final five go-rounds take place at 7:30 p.m. Saturday night.
