Kimzey battled through Bracket 1 to come back after the Wild Card Round and get the win in Semifinals 2 with an 85.5 point ride on J Bar J’s Loaded Dice and qualify for the Finals in February. His 85-point ride would get him a third-place finish and he would take home over $12,000 early in the season.
