PRCA Weekly Recap: Colter Todd teams with Derrick Begay for 4.0-second run

Colter Todd competes at only a handful of rodeos a year.

The three-time National Finals Rodeo qualifier made the most of his first rodeo of the season, combining with team roping header Derrick Begay to clock a 4.0-second run at the Gary Hardt Memorial Rodeo in Payson, Ariz., for the fastest team roping time of the week of May 18-24.

Colter qualified for three consecutive NFRs (2006-08) as a header. Now, the 37-year-old from Willcox, Ariz., heels.

He and Begay won the rodeo, each earning $1,458.
