“A payout this significant on the final weekend of the regular season will give the ProRodeo Tour Finale a playoff-type atmosphere for those in the hunt for the NFR and a PRCA World Championship,” PRCA interim CEO Tom Glause said.
Over the course of the season, contestants competed in up to 55 ProRodeo Tour rodeos that paid out more than $18 million in hopes of qualifying for the Tour Finale.
That hard work will pay off with the chance of competing for a share of nearly $1 million.
The rodeo purse will pay out $596,000, which includes entry fees paid by the event, and each contestant in bareback riding, steer wrestling, team roping (headers and heelers), saddle bronc riding, tie-down roping, barrel racing and bull riding will receive a $1,500 appearance fee that will not count toward the PRCA | RAM World Standings.
The Tour Finale also will host breakaway roping, with ropers competing for a purse of $38,000, including entry fees. They will also receive a $500 appearance fee that will not count toward the world standings.
