Meet the NFR Athlete is presented by Montana Silversmiths
On top of earning his sixth National Finals Rodeo qualification, Montana’s Chase Brooks crossed the $1 million dollar earnings mark in the 2023 regular season.
After placing in the last four Go-Rounds, incuding splitting the Round 10 win of the 2022 NFR, and ending his 2023 regular season with a win, Brooks is used to strong finishes lately.
This year, he enters the NFR the ninth-ranked saddle bronc rider in the PRCA as he looks to continue his streak of Top 10 finishes that dates back to 2018.
In Super Series 2, Brooks placed in all three Go-Rounds to end up the No. 2 cowboy going on to the Semifinals with $4,500. An 86 in the Semifinals aboard Pete Carr Pro Rodeo’s Dirty Jacket landed him in the Finals where an 87-point ride on Cervi Championship’s Ed Bishop would be worth $20,000 and second place.
