Montanans chase $1 million purse at Ram National Circuit Finals

Posted: Updated:

The nation's top rodeo contestants are converging on Florida next week for the Ram National Circuit Finals Rodeo (RNCFR), which gets underway at Silver Spurs Arena on April 7.

The circuit system divides the United States into 12 geographical regions where Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) and Women’s Professional Rodeo Association (WPRA) members compete for points in their designated area to advance to their circuit finals. Winners of the 12 circuit finals, as well as the year-end champions in each rodeo event, are then invited to the RNCFR. 

192 contestants will compete for more than $1 million in prize money. Winners can easily earn over $20,000, plus a $20,000 certificate towards the purchase of a Ram vehicle, a new Polaris RANGER UTV, and a championship package that includes a buckle, saddle and new pair of boots.

Events showcased at the RNCFR include: bareback riding; steer wrestling; team roping (heading and heeling); saddle bronc riding; women’s barrel racing and bull riding.

The Wrangler Network will broadcast the first four performances. CBS Sports will air the finals on April 10th..
