For the Record: Albuquerque

by Matt Naber | Sep 11, 2018

With the end of the regular season approaching, cowboys are running and gunning to make as much money as possible to break into the Top 15 and qualify for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. 

Since 1953, the New Mexico State Fair & Rodeo in Albuquerque has attracted some of the biggest names in professional rodeo. 

Bareback rider Royce Ford qualified for the Wrangler NFR eight times (2003-09, 2011), and during that time he set three records at Albuquerque that still stand. In 2006, he made a 92-point ride on Bar T Rodeo’s Eight Ball, which helped him to also set the three-head average record of 258 points. He returned to Albuquerque in 2007 and set the two-head average record of 174 points. 

Cowboys have from Sept. 11-16 to top Ford’s records, and others, while competing for their share of the Albuquerque prize money.
