BARREL RACING

Brittany Pozzi Tonozzi will be the lady with all eyes on her come the barrel racing. Last year, she went all the way to the Semifinals, but San Antonio was before she found her stride that carried her to another World Championship. She’s still riding that momentum, meaning fast times might come her way.
