(Johna Cravens/Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo)

FORT WORTH, Texas – Lisa Lockhart, 11-time NFR barrel racer from Oelrichs, S.D., was traveling alone from Denver to Fort Worth. Turns out, miserable weather conditions nearly forced her to miss Monday’s performance Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo.

It’s a good thing they didn’t.

Lockhart endured six hours of bad road conditions, caught a couple hours sleep and arrived at Will Rogers Coliseum less than an hour before the performance began. Then, she had to find a farrier to replace one of her horse’s shoes.

Despite the travel woes, Lockhart’s time of 16.76 seconds put her in the number two slot of the first round of barrel racing. That time virtually assured she will be one of the 70 cowgirls returning for the second, progressive round next week.

Scott Kormos of Teague, Texas, roped the overall lead at the World’s Original Indoor Rodeo® at the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo on Monday.

The veteran of eight National Finals Rodeos (NFR) had the second-fastest time of the night – 8.4 seconds. That gave him a total of 16.7 seconds on two tie-down roping runs and the overall lead.

The fastest time of the night was turned in by rodeo legend Trevor Brazile of Decatur, Texas. The 23-time world champion cowboy leads the second round of tie-down roping with 8.1 seconds. (He will compete Wednesday and Thursday nights in team roping.)

Brazile was one of several rodeo athletes who competed in the championship round at the National Western Stock Show & Rodeo in Denver on Sunday, then made a treacherous trip south.

Several inches of snow plus high winds closed most of the routes out of Colorado presenting a travel challenge. More than one rodeo rig wound up in a ditch during the trip.
