2020 American Cowboy Results
The 2020 American Cowboy #12.5 and #10.5 divisions completed on March 7th and 8th at AT&T Stadium. Many smiles and thankful ropers all the way around for those who were fortunate to make the final performances of the big rodeo. The WSTR did not fail at giving team ropers a white-knuckle experience they won’t soon forget. The first two places in each roping were collected on mid 8 second practice pen runs. All total the #12.5 American Cowboy paid X in prepayments and X to the winners. This was the second year for the #10 American Cowboy event and although it did not hit the same numbers as the 2019 event, it did pay non-finalists $104,000 and the Finalist won $244,000, for a total of $348,000. The #12.5 American Cowboy paid non-finalists $38,200 and the Finalist won $59,600, for total of $97,000.
RFD and the Cowboy Channel are designed to show the world what rural America is really about. The announcers didn’t delve into that too much on Saturday, but on Sunday Joe Beaver lead the charge in explaining “cowboy golf” and its impact on the western world. Rodeo was created from the local matches and jackpots of different events and certainly we understand why giving the glimpse into our recreation, was a glimpse of rural America and the origins of rodeo.
We have no word at this point if RFD will want to continue this program. We will make a public announcement once the decision is made. Thanks to everyone who participated during the 2019 roping season.
