Wrangler NFR 2019: Cody Snow/Wesley Thorp match team roping Round 7 record


Cody Snow and Wesley Thorp moved to first in the NFR average after stopping the clock at 3.6 seconds to match the Round 7 record and claim victory in team roping Wednesday night.

“It means a lot for this time in the NFR,” Snow said. “We have placed along the way and it’s good to get a win like that but there is still some (rounds) left to build momentum.”

The pair has now won $62,884 and scored in six of seven rounds.

“I feel good. We haven’t changed from Round 1 and it just shaped up quicker tonight,” Thorp said.

The pair was .6 seconds ahead of the rest of the field as Ty Blasingame/Travis Graves took second with a 4.2-second run. Tate Kirchenschlager and Tyler Worley were third with a 4.3 and Luke Brown and Paul Eaves finished fourth with a 5-second run.

Only one team roping tandem with both guys in the Top 5 in the world standings took home a check last night and that was Chad Masters and Joseph Harrison, who took sixth. They’re both No. 2 their respective world standings behind Clay Smith and Jade Corkill.
