EDITOR’S NOTE: This is one of the pieces that appears on the Ram National Circuit Finals Rodeo blog. I’ll keep posting, but continue to find the information you need about the RNCFR there.
During the 10th round of the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo, 2011 world champion bareback rider Kaycee Feild was matched against Carr Pro Rodeo’s MGM Deuces Night, while four-time champ Bobby Mote was drawn to ride Classic Pro Rodeo’s Big Tex, the 2010 world champion bareback horse.
If those names sound familiar, it’s because they are. Those are the final round-winning match-ups from the 2011 Ram National Circuit Finals Rodeo: Mote matched moves with Big Tex and Feild with MGM Deuces Night across the Jim Norick Arena dirt last April.
The biggest names in the sport just completed the NFR on Dec. 10, but many of them are making their plans to compete for national titles at the Ram National Circuit Finals Rodeo, set for March 29-April 1 at the Oklahoma State Fairgrounds in Oklahoma City. It is the home of the top regional athletes from ProRodeo’s 12 circuits.
It’s also home to some of the greatest animal athletes in the game, and MGM Deuces Night and Big Tex are just a couple of the biggest names. Several of ProRodeo’s top stock contractors will bring their bucking athletes to Oklahoma City to help make match-ups like we’ve seen at the NFR.
That’s just one of the things that makes the RNCFR a great event. Keep checking back to see all the other things you can look forward to when the greatest athletes in ProRodeo return to Oklahoma City the end of March.
