Brazile Leads After First Go of Cinch Timed Event Championship

Trevor Brazile is gunning for another win at the Cinch Timed Event Championship after his first-go win in the Lazy E Arena at the event’s 2017 showdown. 

Brazile has “Boogie” back on the head side after a seven-month layoff due to injury.

Brazile completed five runs in 56.3 seconds to win the first round despite roping a leg on his heeling steer (behind Charly Crawford). The Lazy E is paying $6,000 in each of its five rounds, so Brazile pocketed $3,000 for first place. Clay Smith, the 2014 reserve champion and a two-time NFR qualifier, was second in 61.2, worth $2,000. Shay Carroll, a newcomer to the Timed Event, was third with 63.7 seconds on five.

“It started off with hardly any 60s, but it was downhill from there,” Brazile said. “Bull doggers messing up in the bull dogging, team ropers in the team roping. It’s always the events you take for granted here and overlook some of your strong suits.”

Brazile has a 4.9-second lead on Smith, while newcomer Carroll is behind them at 63.7. Jordan Ketscher has five down in 71.6 seconds, while defending champ Paul David Tierney rounds out the top five in 72.6 seconds.
