The Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association is pleased to announce that the Dodge National Circuit Finals Rodeo (RNCFR) has a new name. Beginning with the event in 2012, the Ram National Circuit Finals Rodeo (RNCFR) will make its home in Oklahoma City.

ExpressLazy E Sports Productions will bring RNCFR – one of the centerpieces of the ProRodeo season – to the Oklahoma State Fair Arena in Oklahoma City.

The more than $525,000 in prize money being offered makes the event one of the richest rodeos in the world. The RNCFR is the showcase event of the circuit season. Each of 12 PRCA circuits sends two competitors in each event to the RNCFR – the year-end earnings champion and the winner of each Dodge-sponsored circuit final – to compete for cash, a national championship and a RAM Truck vehicle voucher.

“The goal of the PRCA is to grow our events, and we can’t think of a better place to do that than Oklahoma City – a metropolitan location in the heart of this great country,” Stressman said. “We’ve always appreciated how supportive Oklahomans are of the sport of professional rodeo.”
