Claremore Rodeo Nominated Again for Best Rodeo!

rodeoThe top five nominees for the 12 categories of PRCA Year-End Awards have been announced. The winners will be declared at the annual PRCA Awards Banquet in Las Vegas Dec. 2.

Dusty Tuckness is going for his sixth Bullfighter of the Year Award, which would extend his record for most wins in the category.

Wayne Brooks will be looking for his third-straight win in the Announcer of the Year category, which would make him just the fourth announcer to win at least three of the awards in a row, joining Randy Corley, Bob Tallman and Boyd Polhamus.

In the PRCA Stock Contractor of the Year category, Stace Smith will be looking for his 12th-consecutive win, which would break the record he now shares with Harry Vold (1982, 1987-96) for the most wins of all time.

Justin Rumford is hoping to win his fourth-straight Clown of the Year award. Only two men have won at least four in a row in that category – Flint Rasmussen and Keith Isley.

Due to ties in the preliminary voting, the categories of Stock Contractor of the Year and Pick-up Man of the Year each have six nominees. This marks the first year the latter has been awarded.
