For the Record: Clem McSpadden National Finals Steer Roping

by Matt Naber | Oct 30, 2018

While the Kansas fields are brown in November, it’s nothing but gold at the Clem McSpadden National Finals Steer Roping in Mulvane. This two-day competition boasts a payout of $425,000 for the Top 15 steer ropers in the PRCA. 

If a cowboy were to win each round and the average at the NFSR, he could go home with $118,897. 

Over the years, the NFSR has witnessed some fast times and big winners, but only the best make history by setting an NFSR record. 

In 2016, Cody Lee set the NFSR record for most money won with $69,651. This year, he’s entering the NFSR ranked 15th with $41,106. 

Three cowboys share the NFSR fastest-time record of 8.3 seconds – Cash Myers (2006), Jess Tierney (2015) and Guy Allen (2016). Trevor Brazile holds the NFSR record for fastest time on 10 head with 111.3 seconds, set in 2015. 

The fastest steer roping time at a PRCA event is 7.7 seconds, set by Cody Scheck at Fort Smith, Ark., in 2012. Chet Herren, who enters the NFSR in 10th, posted the fastest time for the 2018 season, clocking in at 8.3 seconds in Clovis, N.M. 

Of all PRCA events, steer roper Guy Allen has the most consecutive qualifications for the Finals with 32, spanning from 1977-2008. During that run, Allen set the record for most consecutive steer roping world titles won with 11 in a row from 1991-2001. 

Allen also leads the pack across all events for total qualifications, adding his 33rd qualification in 2016. He holds the record for the most NFSR average wins with five (1989, 1991, 1997, 2000 and 2004). He’s also won the most go-rounds overall among NFSR competitors with 48. 

Arnold Felts set the NFSR record for most go-rounds won in a single year in 1993 with six wins.  

This year’s NFSR will play a key role in determining who will be the 2018 All-Around World Champion, as the top two contenders qualified for the NFSR and the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. Tuf Cooper leads the standings with $89,427 in steer roping and has $216,127 in the all-around standings. Close behind is Cooper’s brother-in-law, Brazile, with $59,641 in steer roping and $188,678 in the all-around standings.
