For the Record: Fort Madison

by Matt Naber | Sep 06, 2018

With less than a month left in the regular season, cowboys seeking to make the Top 15 to qualify for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo will try their luck at the Tri-State Rodeo in Fort Madison, Iowa. 

Since 1948, this Hawkeye-state rodeo has attracted some of the biggest names in professional rodeo, but only the best left their mark by setting a rodeo record. 

Steer wrestler Justin Smith has the oldest record at Fort Madison with the 7.6 seconds on two head that he scored in 1995. The Oklahoma cowboy’s PRCA career lasted 20 years, from 1993 through 2013, and garnered more than a quarter of a million dollars in prize money. 

Cowboys have from Sept. 6-8 to top Smith’s record, and others, while claiming their share of Fort Madison’s prize money.
