COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Jordan Hansen is in prime position to make his second trip to the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo.

That became a fact when Hansen had an amazing performance at the ProRodeo Tour Finale in Puyallup, Wash., over the weekend.

Hansen earned $18,203 at the rodeo, thanks in large part to winning the semifinals ($10,000) and the finals ($4,500).

“I don’t know if it has 100 percent sunk in yet,” Hansen told Tuesday afternoon. “This is definitely one of the highlights of my career.”

Hansen, who was 14th in the Sept. 3 PRCA | RAM World Standings, moved up to eighth place in the Sept. 10 world standings with $114,747. The PRCA regular season concludes Sept. 30.

“This (Puyallup) was definitely good timing,” Hansen said. “I was sitting on the bubble it felt like for the last month, so it was a good time to get that amount of money, that’s for sure. Everyone’s goal every year is to make the NFR, and this was a big weight off my shoulders.”

In the semis, Hansen had a 90-point ride on Outlawbuckers Rodeo’s Wild Child, which, combined with ground money, added up to $10,000 because he was the only rider to cover a bull in that round.

“I was surprised I was the only guy to ride in the semifinals,” said Hansen, who was the last guy out in the round. “I certainly didn’t expect that lineup of guys to buck off. It was just one of those days.”

Hansen followed that with an 89-point ride on his re-ride bull, Bridwell Pro Rodeo’s Catfish Clinger, to win the finals.

“I didn’t even know who my re-ride bull was, and things were happening pretty quick,” said Hansen, the 2016 Canadian Professional Rodeo Association bull riding champion. "I just went out there and was able to get the job done."

Hansen made his Wrangler NFR debut in 2017, winning Round 8 and placing in four rounds to finish sixth in the average with 338 points on four head and rank eighth in the world with $180,295.

A year ago, Hansen placed 35th in the world standings with $54,355.
