NFR QUALIFIERS SOLIDIFIED: Who's Going To The Thomas & Mack?

As of today, the 2019 Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association regular season is officially in the books, and while we can’t call the PRCA’s World Standings “official” until every rodeo result is submitted and a professional audit is done, the UNOFFICIAL top 15 can at least start the pre-celebration! 

They’ve been grinding all year, and they can now breathe knowing that – barring a major change after the audit – they’ve made their Wrangler National Finals Rodeo dreams come true. With the American and Houston being added to the PRCA season, and all of the other top events over the past year, watching that grind all season has been more entertaining than ever.
