The ProRodeo Tour presented by Pendleton Whisky is winding down with 27 days left to go in the regular season.
Valuable Tour points and $66,740 was paid out to cowboys on Sept. 3 at the Northern Pro Tour Team Roping in Ellensburg, Wash.
Cody Snow and Wesley Thorp took home the team roping title finishing with a 15.5-second time oin three-head average. The duo finished second in round one, third in round two, and fifth in the finals. The win earned each of them $6,194 toward the world standings.
“It was a really cool event, we got to run three steers in the matter of an hour and a half at this thing,” said Thorp, 25. “Thanks to three really good steers, we were able to make three solid runs to put us in a position to win it. When you’re able to draw good you have to take advantage of that, and I think we did just that.”

Heading into the rodeo Snow was sitting 11th in the PRCA | RAM World Standings among headers, while Thorp was fifth as a heeler. They said this win came at the perfect time as the duo looks to lock up their spots at this year’s Wrangler National Finals Rodeo.
“I hadn’t won much over the last month, I think I had only won $1,200 since Cheyenne (Wyo.),” said Snow, 24. “So, winning $6,000 today let me breathe a little bit. You usually don’t have a ton of opportunities to win that kind of money this time of year.
“Hopefully it will give us the momentum to finish out the season strong over the next few weeks.”
Snow and Thorp will wrap up the weekend roping at the Magic Valley Stampede in Filer, Idaho Sept. 3, and the Dillon (Mont.) Jaycees PRCA Rodeo on Sept. 4.
