Wrangler National Finals Rodeo Team Roping Qualifiers
Reigning World Champion Heeler Jeremy Buhler secured his return trip to the Thomas & Mack in Las Vegas for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in the last weekend of Pro Rodeo’s regular season at the Sioux Falls (S.D.) Wrangler Champions Challenge*. He and reigning World Champion Header Levi Simpson got this steer down in 5.5 seconds, good enough for third place to win $2,204 a man and get Buhler into the Finals. Simpson finished the season 16th in the world but will be heading to the Canadian Finals Rodeo this month in the lead for the year-end title.
