PRCA For The Record: Wrangler NFR Round 5

Competition really heats up at the halfway point of the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo, and Round 5 reflects that with three arena records.

Each of the 10 days present an opportunity to set a record for that round, while even more prestigious is the arena record for the entire Wrangler NFR.

Bareback rider Clayton Biglow’s 93-point ride on C5 Rodeo’s Virgil in 2018 set both the Round 5 record and the arena record for bareback riding at the Wrangler NFR. 

The California cowboy placed in sixth other rounds, while finishing seventh in the average at the 2018 Wrangler NFR to end the year ranked fourth in the 2018 PRCA | RAM World Standings.

Biglow is making his fourth consecutive trip to the Wrangler NFR next month, this time in the No. 1 spot in the 2019 world standings with $181,952 thanks to a slew of major wins in the regular season, including the ProRodeo Tour Finale in Puyallup, Wash., Cheyenne (Wyo.) Frontier Days and the Clovis (Calif.) Rodeo
