2015 National Nine Finale

3-7-15-flex

 $100,000 FOR FIRST AT THE NTR NATIONAL NINE FINALE

 

What an exciting, electrifying culmination to a year of anticipation during the finale of the National Team Roping’s National Nine! For an introductory, experimental idea, the finale certainly didn’t disappoint! It may have taken some time for ropers to understand just what all was up for grabs . . . that for a $100 man entry fee that they could as a team could rope for $100,000.


$100,000, like a carrot on a string, suddenly became reachable to a whole lot of ropers. 500 times return on an entry investment started grabbing everyone’s attention! The short go of the National Nine at Rancho Rio on March 7, was viewing par to any professional roping event. Nothing fell apart. Every bleacher was packed and standing room only for viewing. There where 35 teams that caught three steers that advanced to the short round. Down to the final three, the flag dropped on 19 year old header Trace Steele and his focused, consistent heeler, Tamara Mann. They stretched their steer in 7.88 for a total 4 head time of 34.73 seconds. But the money wasn’t in their pocket until the high call team slipped a leg and delivered their victory and the $100,000!

 

The consolation rounds were adrenaline filled action as well. If nerves knocked a team out of the National Nine, they were still allowed another chance to win big by roping in an additional consolation round. The top twenty consolation teams went to their own short go. Cleaning house on the consolation teams was Bert Croteau and Art Gallais with a time of 13.8 on two head, that rewarded them $6,000.


The National Team Roping Tour (NTR), founded by veteran event producer, Ty Yost, in 2014, is an original concept that is cementing its validity. Seeking to reverse the trend of large payouts from higher fees, focusing instead on providing high returns on minimal entry fee investments. Better than a Las Vegas slot machine, the Finale attracted 220 teams and rewarded 98 of them with checks totaling $313,000.
