KISSIMMEE, Fla. (April 6, 2017) – Josh Frost of Randlett, Utah, took the lead in bull riding at the RAM National Circuit Finals Rodeo (RNCFR) with an 85-point effort on Pete Carr Pro Rodeo’s bull Son of Sam.
Frost was the final cowboy to ride and he took the lead over Californian Jordan Spears who scored 83.5 points. Two years ago at the first RNCFR in Florida, Josh’s brother Joe won the bull riding championship. Josh would love to repeat that feat since the title comes with a Polaris RANGER UTV and a $20,000 voucher toward a new RAM truck along with other prizes. Since the Frosts work their family ranch, another RANGER and a new truck could come in handy.
The first round here will be completed at the second performance Friday night, but Frost is in good position to win part of the prize money. He will compete again on Saturday night in the second round. Twenty-six bull riders are competing here. The eight with the highest total score after the two rounds will advance to Sunday’s semifinals.
At stake are national championships and $1 million in cash and prizes. For the first time, the money that is earned at the RNCFR counts in the world standings for the sanctioning organizations, the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association and the Women’s Professional Rodeo Association.
