"I was really glad to have that horse. That horse leaps in the air so high that he gives you a lot of time to set your feet, and that horse bucks hard. This set of horses that was out tonight, they're all kind of the bucker types, and if you stub your toe, they'll throw you off," said Ford about his ride on Gus.

4 Jason Miller - 3.8
5 Trevor Knowles - 3.9
6 Josh Peek - 4.0

"It's my first NFR, and winning a buckle on the second night is pretty exciting. The first check seemed like it was probably going to be the hardest one, and now that that's done, I just hope I can keep it going. This was the good pen of steers. I really didn't know if a four-second run would win a check," said Reeves.

His partner Ryan Motes, said this, "It's everything I always thought it would be. I've always wanted to rope here, and here I am. To win a round against all of our heroes is really special."

Round 2 Saddle Bronc Results:

1 Rod Hay - 83.5 points on Shady Cat
2 Jeff Willert - 80 on Hy Lo
3 Cody Wright - 79 on Billings
4 Cody DeMoss - 76.5 on Smoke Jumper
5 Taos Muncy - 74 on Home Run

"I won the drawing contest today, and I'm just glad I made the best of it. If I had my pick of them, it would have been her (Shady Cat). It was an eliminator pen. Those horses all buck really hard, and they have the ability to buck guys off. They have done it all year, and that is why they are here and in that pen," said Hay.

Round 2 Tie-Down Roping Results:

1 Stran Smith - 8.0 seconds
2 Houston Hutto - 8.1
2 Matt Shiozawa - 8.1
4 Hunter Herrin - 9
5 Trevor Brazile - 9.1
6 Nate Baldwin - 9.5

"I was right at the first, and this was the pen of big calves. I knew I had a good one. You know when you start off and have 12 guys behind you, the 12 best guys there are, you just let your hair down and go at it. I put a wrap and a hooey on him, and he stayed (tied). I was just fortunate enough to slide in there by a tenth to go ahead and win the round," said Stran Smith on his round 2 win.

National Finals Rodeo

1 Lindsay Sears - 13.92 seconds

5 Brandie Halls - 14.01
6 Codi Baucom - 14.02

"Tonight, I just went a little bit harder to the first barrel. I had a little bit more momentum, which is what got me around the barrel. Last night, I didn't quite have enough momentum, and I caught it (the barrel) while leaving it. The runs were very similar, but we got around all three tonight," said Sears on her exciting run.
