Scheer splits second-round win at NFR

December 8, 2012

 

LAS VEGAS – He’s back.

Cort Scheer proved it quite well Friday night during the second go-round of the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo, scoring an 84.5-point ride on Three Hills Rodeo’s Big Jet to share the round win with Jake Wright and Wade Sundell. It’s the second go-round victory in his second qualification to ProRodeo’s grand finale, and it was nice to collect the $14,527 paycheck this early in the NFR.

This past summer, the heat arrived and the rain went away. All of Nebraska and about two-thirds of the United States was left in a crippling drought. The drought caused corn, Nebraska’s biggest cash-crop, to take a serious hit.
