PRCA Weekly Recap: Aug. 31 through Sept. 7

ProRodeo athletes took a rain check on celebrating Labor Day.

Rather than kicking back and relaxing, they were competing at the 14 ProRodeo competitions held Aug. 31 through Sept. 7, several of which involved heavy rainfall, but the $800,745 in collective prize money made it all worthwhile. 

The highest scores and fastest runs of the week showed how determined cowboys were to win. While these rides and runs might not always make the record book, they make a lasting memory for fans and competitors. 

With hundreds of PRCA competitions across the Western Hemisphere, there are plenty of opportunities to make a memorable ride. Although the prize money differs from one competition to the next, the judging remains consistent across the board.

In addition to the fame that comes with winning the most prize money, each ride was a chance to be the best of the week. Here’s a look at the highest scores and fastest times for each event held Aug. 31 through Sept. 7.

Bareback rider Orin Larsen won the Yellowstone Riggin Rally in Darby, Mont., with a 92.5-point ride on Brookman Rodeo's Famous Dex, Sept. 7.
