Featuring 30 years of RNCFR All-Around Champions

It’s a big year for the RAM National Circuit Finals Rodeo as we celebrate 30 years of rodeo!

The very first circuit finals rodeo was held in Pocatello, Idaho back in 1987, where it stayed until 2010. The RNCFR was then relocated to Oklahoma City, Oklahoma in 2011. Then in 2014, the RNCFR moved once again, this time to Guthrie, Oklahoma. Finally, in 2015, the RNCFR was moved to Kissimmee, Florida where it is still hosted today.

In honor of our 30th anniversary, we thought it would be quite fun to bust out the old record books and take a glance back at 30 years of our RAM National Circuit Finals Rodeo All-Around Champions. An all-around champion is defined by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association as the most talented and versatile cowboy in the sport. The PRCA cowboy who wins the most prize money in a year while competing in at least two events, earning a minimum of $3,000 in each event, wins the world all-around championship. In this case, what holds true for the world title also holds true for the circuit final titlists.
