2021 RAM NATIONAL CIRCUIT FINALS RODEO CHAMPIONS CROWNED IN KISSIMMEE!
From the Columbia River Circuit to the Southeastern Circuit, and everywhere in between, champion contestants laid it all on the line at the RAM National Circuit Finals Rodeo, April 8-10 in Kissimmee, Florida.
These Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association circuit champions have quite the journey to qualify for the RAM National Circuit Finals Rodeo. Contestants must enter at least 15 rodeos recognized by the circuit of their choosing throughout the year. From there, they can advance to their regional finals in their respective circuit, where they must win the year-end or average title in their event to have the opportunity to advance to the RAM National Circuit Finals Rodeo. In Kissimmee, they are not only greeted by sandy beaches and the mouse; they’re welcomed to the Silver Spurs Arena, where they compete for $1 million in cash and prizes.
It’s late nights and long hauls for these contestants and high hopes with their eye on the prize of winning!
