In the long round at the Cinch Gold Buckle Knockout, No. 20 in the World Standings Kolby Wanchuck took first, followed by Tanner Butner (No. 31), Stetson Wright (No. 13) and Chase Brooks (No. 12). All four moved on to the finals, but even with big money up for grabs, it wasn’t not enough to get Wanchuck or Butner into the Top 15 — meaning the 2020 NFR saddle bronc riding is set!

In the final round, Brooks took the first Gold Buckle Knockout championship title with an 90.5 ride.
