Standings Shuffle: 32 move up in Top 15

by Matt Naber | Jun 12, 2018

With $1.5 million up for grabs between 31 ProRodeo competitions, cowboys were hitting the rodeo road during the second week of June. Out of those competitions, 32 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 header Steven Duby (pictured above). The Idaho cowboy moved from 22nd to 15th thanks to winning $1,608 at the Glennville (Calif.) Round-Up Rodeo.
