Circuit Finals Rodeo to Oklahoma CityBy Staff Report February 2, 2012
The Ram National Circuit Finals Rodeo takes place March 29-April 1 at the State Fair Arena in Oklahoma City, OK. With more than $525,000 in prize money, the event is one of pro rodeo’s richest.
The RNCFR is the showcase event of the circuit season. Each of 12 PRCA circuits sends two cowboys to represent in each of the seven disciplines. The year-end earnings champion and the high-point winner of each Dodge-sponsored circuit final are invited to attend, competing for cash, a national championship and a Ram Truck vehicle voucher.
The seven categories for action are bareback riding, saddle bronc riding, barrel racing, steer wrestling, team roping, tie-down roping and bull riding.
For 2012 the event has been rechristened, having previously been known as the Dodge Circuit Finals Rodeo. It also has a new long-term venue. “The goal of the Professional Rodeo Cowboy’s Association is to grow our events, and we can’t think of a better place to do that than Oklahoma City – a metropolitan location in the heart of this great country,” PRCA commissioner Karl Stressman said. Not coincidentally, the town is also home to the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum. “We’ve always appreciated how supportive Oklahomans are of the sport of professional rodeo,” Stressman added.
In addition to the PRCA, ExpressLazy E Sports Productions is also a sponsor. Troy Lerwill ― a combination bullfighter-barrel act-motorcross racer who six times has been named the PRCA’s Act of the Year ― has signed to bring his talents to OKC.
