PRCA Standings Shuffle: 34 Move Up In Top 15

If opportunity knocks, then the first week of August was pounding at the door as there were more ProRodeo competitions Aug. 5-11 than any other week in the 2019 season. 

With the end of the regular season seven weeks away, ProRodeo athletes competed for $2.3 million at the 47 competitions across North America last week. 

Six of last week’s competitions featured six-figure payouts, four of which were ProRodeo Tour events: 
• Lea County PRCA Rodeo in Lovington, N.M.: $233,203
• Farm-City Pro Rodeo in Hermiston, Ore.: $214,899
• Sikeston (Mo.) Jaycee Bootheel Rodeo: $160,312
• Lawton (Okla.) Rangers Rodeo: $149,339

The two non-Tour rodeos to break the six-figure-payout mark were: 
• Strathmore (Alberta) Stampede: $213,803 
• Cache County Fair And Rodeo
 in Logan, Utah: $100,835

With so much money on the table, 34 cowboys saw their position improve within the Top 15. 

Cowboys know it’s easier to maintain a position at the top than it is to play catch-up when trying to qualify for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. Every dollar counts, and making the Top 15 in the world standings during the summer run establishes a solid base and builds a cowboy’s confidence.

Nobody knows this better than team roping header Dustin Egusquiza and steer roper Chris Glover as both cowboys jumped five spots in their respective events within the PRCA | RAM World Standings

Egusquiza moved from 18th to 13th in team roping heeling thanks to winning Sikeston’s rodeo and $5,749 apiece with his heeler Jake Long. The duo picked up an additional $3,882 for placing fourth in Hermiston. 

Glover’s move from 12th to seventh was more of a grind, involving four competitions in three states. The Colorado cowboy won the Yuma (Colo.) County Fair & Rodeo for $2,777 and the Building Champions Rodeo in Wright, Wyo., Aug. 9, for $1,800. 

Glover tied for second in the first round at the Kimball – Banner Fair and Rodeo in Kimball, Neb., and placed fourth in the first round at Building Champions with Sioux Ranch competition in Wright, Aug. 10. 

With some of the biggest checks on the line in the coming weeks, big jumps like Egusquiza’s and Glover’s are sure to happen again.
