MULVANE, Kan. – On the eve of the 2019 Clem McSpadden National Finals Steer Roping, some of the world’s best ropers shared their thoughts.

Fifteen steer ropers will vie for the coveted world championship gold buckle at the NFSR at the Kansas Star Arena in Mulvane, Nov. 22-23. There are five rounds each night, beginning at 7:30 (CT), Friday.

Trevor Brazile comes in as the leader in the PRCA | RAM World Standings with $71,845, followed by Vin Fisher Jr. ($59,844). Tuf Cooper ($55,846), Brazile’s brother-in-law, and J. Tom Fisher ($50,803), Vin’s younger brother, are third and fourth in the standings, respectively.

“I’ve done a lot of events, but there are no events that have as many variables as this thing,” Brazile said. “There are so many things out of your control, and you definitely have to take advantage of your opportunities and also have to be thinking about that average. Getting two checks in that 10th round is huge when you’re talking about winning a world championship.”

The NFSR round winners receive $9,155, while the average champion earns $27,347.

This is Brazile’s 22nd NFSR qualification. He owns six NFSR gold buckles (2006-07, 2011 and 2013-15). Brazile has won a PRCA-record 24 gold buckles – a PRCA record 14 in all-around (2002-04, 2006-15, 2018); three in tie-down roping (2007, 2009-10) and one in team roping (2010) to go with those NFSR buckles.

Counting the Wrangler NFR and the NFSR – Brazile has totaled a PRCA-record 73 round wins – 35 of those in steer roping, which is second only to Guy Allen’s 48 steer roping round wins.

“Coming back here is so cool because I have been here since the first year it was here (in Mulvane) in 2014,” Vin Fisher Jr. said. “To see the way this place has grown and the way the (welcome) banquet has grown is just awesome. The money has doubled since the first year, and it is awesome to see how much better things are.”

The 15 steer ropers will be competing for $425,000 in prize money.

"This is a real Finals,” Fisher said. “You can come in from behind and still have a chance to win. This is such a great venue and there should be some great roping.”

Scott Snedecor is returning to his 18th NFSR as the reigning two-time world champion. He owns four steer roping world titles in all – the first two in 2005 and 2008. Snedecor finished sixth in the regular-season world standings with $45,106.

“I love coming to this place,” Snedecor said. “The hospitality is great. The fans are great. I look forward to this every year. The money has been leaps and bounds (better), and you can do a lot of catching up in two days.”

Doors for the NFSR open at 6:30 p.m. (CT). Tickets from $28 plus taxes and convenience fees. To book tickets go to To book your 2019 NFSR room and ticket package visit
