#PositiveTimesMoment: Amanda Welsh to wear same NFR back number her brother did in 2011

Barrel racer Amanda Welsh is going to her first NFR in December, but it’s not the first time a member of the Welsh family has been there.

Her brother Bobby qualified for six NFRs in bull riding between 2005 and 2011. He wore No. 70 on his back in 2011 and that is the number Amanda will be wearing this year.

“Ten years later, my first NFR, I get to have a matching back number,” she wrote on Facebook.

Welch is one of two first-time qualifiers in the barrel racing, the other is Molly Otto.
