LAS VEGAS (AP) — Trevor Knowles had a near-record run of 3.1 seconds Thursday night to take the lead in the steer wrestling season standings after the first round of the National Finals Rodeo.

Knowles, from Mount Vernon, Ore., was a tenth of a second off the Thomas & Mack Center record of 3.0 set by Steve Duhon in 1986 and matched by Bryan Fields in 2001. Knowles had the fastest first-round time in NFR history, breaking the mark of 3.3 set by Gary Green and Roy Duvall in 1985.

Knowles pushed his season money total to $120,158. Casey Martin of Sulphur, La., finished fourth in 4.2 to drop into second place at $116,750.
