The Farm-City Pro Rodeo brings a purse of $17,500 per event plus entry fees for Bareback Riding, Tie-Down Roping, Steer Wrestling, Saddle Bronc Riding, Barrel Racing, and Bull Riding. Because there are two contestants involved in the Team Roping event, FCPR adds $35,000 plus entry fees. The FCPR ranks among the top 50 professional rodeos in North America based on total prize money. The total entries in each event determine how many places or “monies paid” in each event.
There are two levels of competition in the revised format being used this year with nine of the 25 participating rodeos designated as Gold rodeos – those with a committee purse of at least $20,000 in each event – and the remainder being designated Silver rodeos, with a committee purse of at least $10,000 in each event.
The Wrangler Million Dollar Tour will culminate with an elimination-style playoff system that will play out at two elite PRCA events, in Puyallup, WA and Omaha, NB.
Total prize money for the regular season and playoffs is projected to exceed $6 million.
