Dalton Massey Proves He Belongs at No. 1 with Round 1 Win to Kick Off His First NFR

Dalton Massey’s regular season set him ahead of the rest as he came into his first National Finals Rodeo. He left no doubt that he belongs here with his Round 1 winning time of 3.5 seconds.

“I’ve been waiting for this moment for my whole life and I liked my steer tonight, horse worked great, Tanner hazed him great and I’m just super excited. I’ve got my family here, it’s going to be a great week,” Massey said.

Massey got the win by three tenths over the No. 2 cowboy in the Round, Tyler Waguespack. The fight is on for that coveted Gold Buckle.
