Moments ago a 68 year-old barrel racer by the name of Mary Burger secured the Women’s Professional Rodeo Association’s Barrel Racing World Championship title. This young lady had a dominating performance throughout the entire ten-day run that we call the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. She came into round one with guns blazing and never looked back after carrying her number one position all the way through the entire 10-day run here in Las Vegas
I was able to catch up with the new world champion tonight after it was announced she had in fact secured the title after her solid performances throughout the week and here in round ten here earlier tonight. This great cowgirl is about as humble as they come and wanted to make sure to give credit where credit was do. That being said she wanted everyone to know that there were fourteen other ladies inside of the locker room that deserved some recognition as well. If this does not show the meaning of rodeo family I do not know what does!
