Stetson Wright units PRCA all-around regular-season cash report | Rodeo

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado – With a payday of $ 8,860 at the Washington State Fair Pro Rodeo in Puyallup, Stetson Wright added more than just one more all-round title to his résumé.

The Milford, Utah cowboy made ProRodeo history by becoming the regular season’s top-tier all-round money maker with $ 285,135 in the saddle and bull, the PRCA reported in a weekly press release Monday. The PRCA regular season ends on September 30th.

ProRodeo legend Trevor Brazile held the record, earning $ 218,852 in the 2015 regular season standings. Brazil’s total cash was originally reported at $ 282,242, but that number was incorrect as it included the money he made in the 2015 National Finals Steer Roping, the publication explains.

“I think it’s going pretty well,” Wright said in the press release about his season. “I think I never think about the money won and never about records. I just think gold buckles. So it’s pretty great to hear that. “

Brazile, who won a PRCA record of 26 world championships and earned more than $ 7 million in career income, is an inspiration to many cowboys on the rodeo trail, including Wright.

“Having my name in the same sentence as Trevor Brazile is pretty great,” Wright said in the press release. “And breaking a record set by the 26-time world champion rate is also pretty special.”

Tri-State Rodeo proclaims leisure lineup

FORT MADISON (WGEM) – The Tri-States Rodeo announced its entertainment program on Friday morning.

The line-up remained largely unchanged from last year, with Nelly headlining Thursday night and David Lee Murphy and Mark Chestnutt headlining Friday night.

However, the organizers said changes would have to be made for Saturday evening.

“Last year you may have remembered we had Trace Adkins, now Trace is not available,” said Gary Gleichman, chairman of the Tri-State Rodeo Media. “So we moved to Cole Swindell, so the line-up is spectacular.”

The organizers said they are looking forward to a few days full of stars. “

“We also expect a large amount, in fact we’re looking for a sale every night,” said Gleichman.

Local businesses said they were thrilled with the return of the rodeo and customers out of town.

“It’s great,” said Under the Sun owner Ron Barnes. “We get a lot of people, especially during the parade.”

Barnes said it will help the new businesses that opened their doors last year.

“We have about two or three new restaurants in town and it attracts people from all over the world,” he said. “The more shops you have downtown, the better it is for everyone.”

Rodeo officials said it wasn’t an easy decision to cancel last year’s rodeo in just five days.

“Simply because we didn’t know what COVID was doing,” said Gleichman.

He said that this year they will be closely monitoring the situation of the local coronavirus, working with local authorities and health officials, and taking all safety precautions they deem necessary.

“Protect everyone. That’s the main goal. To have a good time and come back stronger and better than ever,” said Gleichman.

These years rodeo is scheduled for September 8th, 9th, 10th and 11th.
