Kincade Henry made up for just missing the National Finals Rodeo in 2021 by cinching his spot in 2022.

He enters his first ever NFR sitting No. 15, but it is no secret what the young calf roper can do. Henry was known to be tough competition before he even got his PRCA card. It proved true, and now he is roping with the best on the biggest stage the sport has to offer.

Henry started his 2022 season off strong at the Roping Fiesta before the winter run rolled around. He capitalized on opportunities all year long to make it to Vegas.

Henry made $4,500 in Bracket 3 and advanced to the Wildcard to try to move onto the Semifinals. In the the Wildcard, Henry tied to win it with an 8.1 but the tie breaker prevented him from moving on. However, it still paid him another $4,500.

Henry went into September on a mission and this round win in Ellensburg was just what he needed. An 8.0 second run added over $3,500 to his season earnings at just the right time.
