Standings Shuffle: 38 move up in Top 15



The first week of August brought the heat in PRCA competition to the tune of $1.78 million in prize money between 33 rodeos across North America. With so much money up for grabs, 38 cowboys saw their position improve within the Top 15. 

Veteran and rookie 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 PRCA | RAM World Standings early establishes a solid base and builds a cowboy’s confidence as the season picks up pace.

Nobody knows this better than team roping heeler Cody Cowden, who moved from 23rd to 15th. Cowden moved eight spots this week thanks to winning $7,836 at the Dodge City (Kan.) Roundup Rodeo.
