MARANA, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Happening today, Marana's own Sherry Cervi is battling it out in Las Vegas for the World Title in barrel racing. 

In round eight at the National Finals Rodeo, she and her horse Stingray claimed their third win of the week with a time of 13.71 seconds; she is now looking to claim the overall average win for the third time in her career. 

"I've been here 16 times and I've only done it twice, so I'm trying to learn what I didn't do before," said Cervi.  "But you know it's been a great year."  Cervi leads the Women's Professional Rodeo Associations' world standings with yearly earnings of $241,268. 

The team has been consistent this week and has put together eight solid clean runs; a feat when considering Cervi and her horse Stingray have competed in the same arena for 10 days straight.

If the two keep it up, a third world title could be waiting for Cervi.
