Payson's Wesley Silcox clinched the bull riding world championship at the National Finals Rodeo on Saturday.

Silcox finished first for the second consecutive round with a score of 91.5 on Wolf Can Do and claimed both the world title with $228,941 and the aggregate crown with 596 points on seven bulls.

Trevor Brazile became the first PRCA triple-crown winner since 1983, winning the tie-down roping world title in the 10th and final round of the National Finals Rodeo.

Brazile, from Decatur, Texas, won the tie-down roping title with $189,640, edging Houston Hutto of Del Rio, Texas, by about $4,000. Brazile stayed in front of Hutto by earning $14,278 for finishing fifth in the aggregate standings with a time of 101.70 over 10 rounds. Hutto earned $9,783 with a third-place finish in 7.8 during the 10th round. Brazile didn't place with a time of 15.40, taking two loops to secure his calf.

Brazile came into the NFR with the steer roping title and clinched the all-around title during the eighth round. He's the first triple-crown champ since his father-in-law, Roy Cooper, accomplished the feat 24 years ago. Brazile finished the season with PRCA-record $425,115 in all-around earnings.

"It's awesome," Brazile said. "You're talking about Roy Cooper and Jim Shoulders (another triple crown winner), and they're the greatest cowboys to ever live. Anytime you're on the same page as those guys, it's a great accomplishment and means a lot to me."

Aggregate standings champion Cody Ohl of Hico, Texas, had a 10-head time 90.80 seconds, while Stran Smith of Childress, Texas, was second with 10 in 97.80. Ohl also earned an NFR-event record $103,521 and finished third in the world standings with $183,117.

Clint Cooper of Decatur, Texas, and Blair Burk of Durant, Okla., tied for first in the 10th round in 7.3 seconds.

In bareback riding, event aggregate champion Will Lowe of Canyon, Texas, sealed his second straight title when he won the round with an NFR-record score of 91.5 on Magic Wars. Lowe tied the NFR and Thomas & Mack Center arena record set earlier in the week by Justin McDaniel of Porum, Okla.

Three-time world champion Lowe had 10 successful rides for an NFR-record 846 points, while Jessy Davis of Payson was next with 10 rides for 830 points. Lowe is the first bareback rider to win consecutive aggregate titles outright since Bruce Ford in 1979 and 1980.

Bobby Mote of Culver, Ore., took the world title with $207,183. Lowe, who earned $116,213 at the NFR, was second with $190,632.

"It's been five years in the making, so it feels good," Mote said about his first world title. "Every year I've come here I've tried (to win a world title), and I ended up second again last year. So, to finish it off is great, especially with this field of bareback riders."

In steer wrestling, Jason Miller of Lance Creek, Wyo., won both the world and aggregate championships when he finished in a three-way tie for third place in a time of 4.8 during the 10th round.

Miller was No. 1 in the world with $178,767 and won the aggregate in a time of 42.7 for 10 rounds during his second NFR.
