PRYOR, OK —
It was also quite a memorable weekend for 41-year-old Tony Reina, who, in his first qualification to the Clem McSpadden, won the average championship, roping and tying down all 10 steers in a cumulative time of 142.2 seconds.
“It’s awesome,” said Reina, a 1999 NFR qualifier in tie-down roping from Wharton, Texas. “That’s the most coveted buckle besides the gold buckle. It’s an endurance contest when you run 10 head, especially in the steer roping where there are so many variables.”
