The Professional Bull Riders’ top competitors competed in the Mason Lowe Memorial in St. Louis last weekend.

The 25-year-old cowboy from Exeter, Mo., died in mid-January after a bull accident at a PBR show during the National Western Stock Show in Denver.

Chase Outlaw of Hamburg, Ark., clinched the title in St. Louis and earned $40,480. He turned in a final 91.5 on Big Black in the final round.

Outlaw is ranked second in the PBR’s 2019 world title race with 1,472.5 points. Jess Lockwood, the 2017 world champion, is No. 1 with 2,097.5. Jo o Ricardo Vieira, a Brazilian who lives in Decatur, is third with 1,135. Vieira finished 15th in St. Louis.

Former PBR World Finals qualifier Stormy Wing of Dalhart finished third at a smaller PBR show last weekend in Jacksonville, Fla., after turning in an 88. Taylor Toves of Stephenville clinched the title with a two-ride score of 175.

DOUBLE DIPPING

The San Angelo Stock Show offered some competitors two different rodeos to earn prize money that will count toward the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association world standings for the first time.

The two rodeos were the multi-performance traditional PRCA rodeo and the single-performance Cinch Chute-Out Rodeo. The traditional PRCA rodeo began Feb. 1 and performances were held on various days through Friday. It featured competitors with a wide range of pro rodeo experience. But the Saturday Chute-Out Rodeo was an invitational that featured credentialed PRCA competitors.

Clayton Biglow finished in the money at both rodeos. Biglow finished third at the PRCA rodeo and earned $4,999. He turned in a lofty score of 89.5 in the finals.

Biglow also pocketed $7,500 for winning the Chute-Out Rodeo. He won with a remarkable finals score of 93 on a bronc named Top Notch (Pickett Rodeo Co.).

Biglow earned $12,499 at the two San Angelo rodeos.

In San Angelo, Decatur’s Tuf Cooper earned $5,458 in tie-down roping from the two pro rodeos. The 2017 world all-around champion finished eighth at the PRCA rodeo ($2,458) and second at the Chute-Out Rodeo ($3,000).

A RECORD FINISH

Michael Otero of Weatherford clinched the tie-down roping title at the traditional San Angelo PRCA Rodeo with an arena record three-run time of 23.0 at the Foster Communications Coliseum.

The previous three-head tie-down roping average was 23.5 seconds, set by Timber Moore in 2014.

In bareback riding, former NFR qualifier Caleb Bennett clinched the title with a San Angelo PRCA rodeo record breaking two-ride score of 178.5.

Trevor Brazile, a 24-time world champion from Decatur who competed in tie-down roping and team roping at the San Angelo Rodeo, clinched the rodeo’s all-around title with $7,394 in total earnings.
