As the only cowboy with six qualified rides heading into the 10th and final go-round Saturday night, all Chase needed to win the NFR average for bull riding was a score of any kind, and he delivered!
Chase leaves Vegas with just over $342,000 in earnings on the season, which puts him second place behind four-time bull riding world champion Sage Kimzey. He was also the RAM Top Gun Award winner, having earned the most at the NFR, which also netted him a brand-new Dodge truck.
The 20-year-old cowboy and 2016 Canby High School grad is in just his second year as a professional bull rider. This was his first time qualifying for the NFR, the annual season-ending rodeo championships held at the Thomas and Mack Center in Las Vegas.
