Steer wrestler Stetson Jorgensen came into the Wrangler NFR as the regular season leader and hasn’t taken his foot off the gas at the Thomas & Mack Center.
Jorgensen, a four-time qualifier for the NFR, leads the world standings with $213,630.
“I got a really good start at the barrier, steer went to the right, which is going to happen when you get a start like I did.,” Jorgensen said. “My hazer walled him off for me and I finished him on the ground.
“Oh, you always get nervous, but it’s a good nervous, when you’re at the NFR if you don’t have some nerves, then something is wrong.”
Jorgensen was riding standout horse, Mable.
“Mable did a great job, came from Garrett Henry and just is the type of horse that does what needs to be done.”
