INFR champions get chance to ride for $2.5M

The defending Indian National Finals Rodeo champions in each event have received invitations to compete in The American Semi-Finals, Feb. 18-22 in the historic Fort Worth (Texas) Stockyards.

The top finishers at the half-million-dollar Semi-Finals in Fort Worth will then advance to compete against the best in the world during RFD-TV’s $2 million rodeo, The American presented by Polaris Ranger, on March 1 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

“Golf has the Masters; football has the Super Bowl and rodeo has The American,” said eight-time world champion cowboy Larry Mahan. “This event is about celebrating the greatest sport and the greatest nation. It's about our Western heritage of community, traditional values, family, friends and neighbors, excellence, hard work and love of country.”

Organizers not only invited the 2014 INFR champions in each event, but also the champions from the National High School Finals Rodeo and College National Finals Rodeo. These cowboys and cowgirls will join contestants who earned the right to compete at The American Semi-Finals earlier this season at affiliate events. The Semi-Finals total payout has doubled from last year, offering a first-place cash prize in some events of up to $35,000.

Immediately following the Semi-Finals on February 22, contestants who advanced to The American are invited to take part in the Sponsor Patch Auction held inside Billy Bob’s Texas, which adjoins the Cowtown Coliseum. That night, Superior Livestock will sell the space on the back of each American contestant to the highest bidder. Anyone can register to bid, and RFD-TV doesn’t keep a dollar of the proceeds. Of each winning bid, 85 percent goes into the cowboy or cowgirl’s pocket and 15 percent will be donated to one of three nonprofits dedicated to keeping Western heritage alive – the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame, the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame and the National Cowboy Western and Heritage Museum.

A week later, during the rodeo in AT&T Stadium, the winning bidders will be invited to watch from custom owner’s boxes specially placed on the arena floor where the Dallas Cowboys typically take the field for football games. If a patch owner’s contestant wins an event, that owner will also be invited onstage to receive awards alongside the rodeo champion.

Tickets for The American Semi-Finals are available for $40 per single day or a three-performance package of $100, not including taxes. They can be purchased at the Cowtown Coliseum box office, at stockyardsrodeo.com, or americanrodeo.com.

Tickets for RFD-TV’s The American, presented by Polaris Ranger, and the PBR’s Iron Cowboy VI on Feb. 28 are on sale at the AT&T Stadium Box Office, all Ticketmaster locations and at americanrodeo.com.  Prices for each event range from $20 to $150, not including taxes.
