The Short Score BONUS – Junior Nogueira
Junior Nogueira is coming into the 2019 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo as the number-one heeler in the PRCA world standings, roping again this year with Kaleb Driggers. This will mark his sixth appearance in the Thomas & Mack since his explosion onto the US roping scene from Brazil, complete with that infamous pull back. Some things have changed since that first year—he’s is a newlywed, on the brink of fatherhood and his English is pretty flawless. But his giddy personality, his priority of family over all else and his hunt for a heeling gold buckle have remained constant.
We sat down just two days before the start of Round 1, immediately after he and the rest of the ropers got to run through the Hill Rodeo Cattle steers in the arena. Here’s Junior Nogueira on this special edition of The Score, brought to you by CSI Saddle Pads.
The Score – Gary Poythress
Gary Poythress is the brains behind Rodeo Computer Services—the software behind the handicapping system used by the USTRC to establish interstate commerce in the sport of team roping. He’s helped shape the industry, though almost always strictly behind-the-scenes. He’s had a front-row seat to history, helping drive the explosion of the USTRC and eventually the WSTR with the use of his software.
Now, he’s pioneering the new, independent Global Handicaps, the next evolution of team roping’s number system. He took the time to explain how handicapping has evolved and where it’s going on the new platform. If you care about your number, and you’re curious how ropers are raised or lowered, this is a must listen. This new system will provide instant handicap appeals, regional and national event listings, real-time updates from ropings across the country, the most complete analysis on ropers of all levels, and so much more. Gary breaks down the thinking behind it, and his insights will blow you away.
