World Leader, Curtis Cassidy holds the most CFR Steer Wrestling qualifications with 19 appearances in the CFR. Lastly, two time champion, Scott Shiffner was introduced as the record holder for the most CFR qualifications in Bull Riding with 18 appearances; this will be his last year.

For the second night in a row, Jake Vold, with a score of 90.25 won the go round while setting a CFR record for the highest score in Bareback on Horse of the Year, Virgil. Clayton Moore with a time of 3.6 took the round in Steer Wrestling, while Jeremy Buhler and Levi Simpson tied the Minor brothers with a time of 4.3 in Team Roping. In the Saddle Bronc, Zeke Thurston scored 87.75 while World Leader, Shane Hanchey, in Tie Dow Roping had a time of 7.4, both moving to the #1 spots in their events.
