Brazile clinched the 13th gold all-around buckle of his career when he won the tie-down roping in Round 6 with a 6.6-second run Tuesday night. The run broke the previous Round 6 record of 6.9 seconds, and was just one-tenth of a second off the arena record time of 6.5 seconds set by Cody Ohl in 2003. The 6.6 also was Brazile's personal-best WNFR tie-down roping time, surpassing his previous top time of 6.7 seconds when he won Round 7 in 2007.

Entering the night, Brazile just needed to out-earn team roper JoJo LeMond to clinch the all-around gold buckle. He moved from sixth to second in the tie-down roping world standings, and trails brother-in-law Tuf Cooper by less than $9,000. Brazile sits fourth in the average race, and if the rodeo ended right now would be collecting gold buckle No. 24.
