Stetson Jorgensen is the Timed Event Athlete of the Week after he takes over the No. 1 position in the PRCA World Standings.

With an impressive trip to the Cinch Playoffs in Puyallup, Jorgensen added close to $15,000 to his regular season winnings and surpassed Tyler Waguespack for the lead in the standings.

It was times of 4.2 and 4.6 in his Playoff that made Jorgensen 8.8 on two head and the No. 2 man qualifying for the Semifinals out of his Playoff. In those Semifinals, he went on to throw a 3.7-second run to be the No. 1 man coming into the Finals. His 3.9 in the Finals would turn out to be a $13,000 winning run.

Jorgesen has come close to winning a World Title before and this year could be his year. With plenty of rodeos left with big money to be won during the last two and a half weeks of the season, Jorgesen has the opportunity to further his lead.
