PRCA Round 6 NFR Live, Wrangler 2015 National Finals Rodeo Live watch online . NASHVILLE, Tenn (RFD-TV) He’s on his way to the wrangler national finals rodeo in December, but this Texas roper’s continuing to bank big.Big Piney’s Karson Bradley leads a strong contingent of Wyoming competitors into the week-long National High School Finals Rodeo, which The Wright family was well-represented in the final round.
Spencer, Rusty’s uncle, finished with an 83 and ended up tying for third place in the saddle bronc standings. Jesse and Jake Wright, two more uncles, failed to score. So did Rusty’s father, Cody, who is a two-time world champion.
After watching his son win the Days of ’47, however, Cody Wright said, “I couldn’t be happier for him. It’s great to go out and make a good ride yourself, but to watch your kid do it, I don’t know how you can’t love it.”In the past, the week-long “Rose Bowl” of college rodeo was taped and aired later in the summer on ESPNU. The new deal will not mean more money for either the rodeo association or the city of Casper, but local officials are excited about the potential increased exposure.The thought of more eyeballs makes for a strong selling point when it comes to selling sponsorships and advertising, Cathey added.
ESPN and the rodeo association drew up the deal after realizing the Casper Events Center had the bandwidth to support streaming the event.
The contract will likely be for two or three years, Walters said.Casper will play host to the rodeo through 2022 under its current contract. The rodeo has called Casper home for 17 years.
“The rodeo is our product,” said Councilman Steve Cathey. “The better we can make the product, the more notoriety we gain for Casper.”
The event draws about 1,700 visitors who spend in the neighborhood of $8 million during their stay, according to earlier Star-Tribune reports.
