KISSIMMEE, Fla. – Nick Guy is a world class steer wrestler from Sparta, Wisconsin, who could possibly have had a career in hockey, but fans at the RAM National Circuit Finals Rodeo (RNCFR) saw why his focus is on rodeo.
The four-time Wrangler National Finals Rodeo qualifier took advantage of a rodeo scholarship to get his bachelor’s degree. Guy and his wife now live in Colorado and although he competes in rodeos across the country, his focus is on the Mountain States Circuit which also includes Wyoming.
Guy won the championship at the Mountain States Circuit Finals to qualify for his second RNCFR. He brought his first steer to the ground in 4.3 seconds on at the first performance April 6. He had his second round of competition on Saturday night and had another good run at 3.9 seconds. That got him a check for second in the round and put him in the overall lead.
Guy is currently 6th in the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association world standings and can add $11,656 to those earnings because of his success here already. He will advance to Sunday’s semifinals as one of the top eight steer wrestlers here. Their previous times are dropped, so the field will all be even. Then the four fastest times from the semifinals get to compete one more time in the finals.
Sunday’s competition starts at 2:30 p.m. at the Silver Spurs Arena at Osceola Heritage Park. As well as the prize money, event champions get a voucher towards the purchase of a new RAM vehicle, a Polaris RANGER and the championship buckle.
