Ramona man gets bum steer
There are no second chances when competing in the National Finals Rodeo.
In his first trip to the nationals Dec. 6 through 16 in Las Vegas, Tanner Brunner of Ramona threw nine steers in 95.5 seconds.
The steer in the last go-round Saturday stopped after exiting the chute, which canceled the chance for a final throw.
Brunner’s best throw was in the third go-round, when he tied with two others for fifth place at 4.6 seconds and won $3,666.
Going into the finals, Brunner finished the regular rodeo season in sixth place with $84,527. He finished the season with $98,193 in total winnings. He already is competing in the 2019 season with hope of returning to nationals.
