No. 3 Shad Mayfield, $156,281
Shad Mayfield, the 2020 World Champion, found success in Puyallup at the Cinch Playoffs as he locked in an 8.2-second run in Round 1 and followed up with an 8.3-second run in Round 2 to ultimately make his way into the Short Go. A fourth-place check in the Final Round added $3,250 to his earnings, bringing his total money to $7,857 in Washington and moving Mayfield up to No. 3 in the PRCA World Standings.
No. 7 Cory Solomon, $115,636
Nine-time National Final Rodeo qualifier Cory Solomon is sitting inside the Top 10 at No. 7 after getting a check in Lewiston and Puyallup.

The 23-year-old cowboy is gunning for his first National Finals Rodeo qualification and with a good amount of money up for grabs in the remainder of the regular season, Potter has a chance of competing inside the Thomas & Mack this winter.
No. 17 Jake Pratt, $94,333
Jake Pratt is sitting just outside the Top 15 after securing a third place check for $3,513 at the Lewiston Roundup with a run of 7.8 seconds.
