Meet the NFR Athletes is presented by Montana Silversmiths
Nick Guy’s National Finals Rodeo appearances come in waves and right now, he is back on a high. After qualifying for five straight from 2014-2018, he didn’t make it back again until 2022. As the No. 13 ranked steer wrestler in 2023, he is heading back for a second straight NFR bringing his total qualifications to eight.
At 39, he is the oldest steer wrestler in the Top 15 this year and with a good NFR, he could cross $1.5 million in career earnings.
Cinch Playoff’s Governor’s Cup, $12,500
Guy picked up the Round 2 win at the first ever Governor’s Cup in Sioux Falls, which paid him $10,000 for a run of 3.3 seconds, his second-fastest of the season. His two-head total 8.0 seconds advanced him to the Semifinals, where he would finish seventh while competing among the best in the PRCA to close the regular season.
Snake River Stampede (Idaho), 3.0 Seconds
Guy kicked it off with a 3.9-second run to be seventh in Round 1 before besting that time by nine tenths of a second in the Finals. The 3 second flat run was the fastest of the year in the bulldogging and Guy’s a total time of 11.1 seconds on three head that made him the No. 1 bulldogger in the Average. It was his second-highest paying rodeo of the season.
Colorado State Fair & Rodeo, 3.5 seconds
At the end of August, Guy would throw one of his fastest runs of the year in the Second Round in Pueblo. He would place second in Round 1 with a 4.5 before besting that time by over a second to get the Go-Round win in Round 2. He finished first in the Average at the rodeo and made nearly $4,000 along the way.
New Mexico State Fair & Rodeo, 3.5 seconds
At the end of the season, State Fairs were good to Guy. That same time of 3.5 seconds came back around in the middle of September, this time, in Albuquerque. Guy stopped the clock at 3.5 seconds along with Tyler Pearson and J.D. Struxness to split the win three ways and add almost $3,000 to his earnings.
Magic Valley Stampede (Idaho), 3.6 seconds
In addition to the Snake River Stampede, Guy finished first at a second PRCA Playoff Series Rodeo in Idaho in 2023. Guy put a 3.6 on the board in Filer to tie with Clayton Hass for the win. This added another $3,000 to his season earnings.
