Combined with his 4.9 second run in the first round,  Jule Hazen likely ensured himself a spot in next Saturday's championship round, as he leads the two-steer average at 8.9 seconds.

"I hope I'm back for the short round, but there are still a lot of good guys to go," he said. "But this feels awesome. Three of us are traveling together and we're sitting first, second and third right now."

With a purse of more than $500,000, the Reno Rodeo is one of the most lucrative in professional rodeo, just winning one of the go-rounds can be big. Saddle bronc rider Zeke Thurston might just find that out.

He's leading the second round after an 82-point ride on Rosser Rodeo Co.'s bronc Hat Stomper.
