Latest on Practice Pen Qualifiers

The July PPQ’s just completed a successful weekend and officially there are 173 teams that have qualified, winning $622,000 in entries to the Finale. The split looks like this:  Seventy three 10.5 teams, sixty 9.5 teams, and forty 8.5 teams. The Texans have been relentless and won 102 of the 346 checks, which pretty well represents the demographics of the roping population as a whole. The Texans started out strong at the beginning but then the rumor mill started cranking that a few ropers had received number bumps as a result of the PPQ and it chilled. The other states caught back up with the Lone Star Boys, but in the meantime WSTR was countering the handicap discussion by declaring how many were actually moved (16 out of 700) and even went so far as to mail that list out to the arena contractors, and influencers, to see if there was sufficient sympathy to lower any of them back. Needless to say that discussion ended quickly and in the last couple of months the Texans were back in the drivers seat and getting even more of the PPQ.

It’s not done yet, there are two opportunities left on the PPQ schedule for the 2020 season:

August 21, 22, 23

September 18, 19, 20
