They've been battling it out for two days just for a chance to compete in the WCRA $500,000 Semi-Finals' progressive rounds. The best 16 in the team roping, breakaway roping, tie-down roping, and steer wrestling have risen to the top and are now preparing to do battle with the other 16 competitors that were exempt from the preliminary rounds.
But don't let the fact that they were in the preliminaries fool you—the list of competitors making it through to compete May 18 and 19 is star-studded. Trevor Brazile, Matt Reeves, Hunter Herrin, and Lindsey Sears are just a few of the NFR qualifiers and world champions on the list.
Check out the results to see the top 16 lists for each event HERE and watch the full replays of the preliminary rounds below to see just how those 16 made it through for a chance at the "big money" in the progressive rounds and the opportunity to qualify for the Title-Town Stampede $1 Million Major in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
