PRCA Team Roping (Heelers) Standings Shuffle: Junior Nogueira enters No. 1 and Joseph Harrison secures final spot
Junior Noguiera ($133,716) enters the Wrangler NFR No. 1 in the PRCA Team Roping (Heeler) World Standings and at what will be his eighth NFR, he has a golden opportunity to win his first heeling World Championship.
If he wants to do that, he will have to go through the likes of No. 2 Travis Graves ($126,869), a 13-time NFR qualifier, 2020 NFR Average Champion and World No. 3 Paden Bray ($116,937), three-time Gold Buckle winner No. 4 Jade Corkill ($110,570) and 2019 World Champion Wesley Thorp ($102,037), who enters his seventh consecutive NFR as the World No. 5.
Another noteworthy team roping story is No. 14 Brady Minor ($61,878) and No. 15 Joseph Harrison ($61,688) will have different partners than they did all season. Minor will rope without his brother Riley, who finished No. 16 on the head side, for just the second time in his 12 NFR appearances. As for Harrison, he spent a majority of the year roping behind Chad Masters, who finished 19th on the head side.
No. 9 Ross Ashford ($71,822) and No. 13 Coy Rahlmann ($63,926) are this year’s first-time qualifiers.
