For The Record: RAM Columbia River Circuit



The RAM Columbia River Circuit Finals Rodeo kicks off tonight, Nov. 3, in Yakima, Wash., and runs through Sunday, Nov. 5. Every year, circuit cowboys compete for a shot at the RAM National Circuit Finals Rodeo, but only the best make repeat champion-level performances. 

It is interesting to note that in more than 30 years of circuit rodeo competition, no steer wrestler has won the RAM Columbia River Circuit Finals Rodeo two years in a row. 

Many cowboys who excel in the RCRCFR go on to compete at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo presented by Polaris RANGER – giving local fans a chance to see some of rodeo’s greatest competitors and rising stars as they begin a new season. 

Cowboys who win the circuit finals rodeo’s average might not always be the same ones who win the circuit year-end title, so there are two separate lists of records for average title winners and circuit year-end winners.
