Isaac Diaz Talks $1 Million Opportunity After Win in Corpus Christi

Isaac Diaz will ride for $1 million at Rodeo Carolina on Oct. 6, 2023 after winning his second consecutive WCRA event on May 11 in Corpus Christi.

The seven-time NFR qualifier said it will be hard to not keep the money in the back of his mind.

“I just gotta kind of play it off like it’s just another rodeo, I know how I function and I’m not like some guys that feed off of the attention so I’m going to keep it as mellow and cool as I can and I’ll perform a little better,” Diaz said.

At Rodeo Corpus Christi, Diaz won $15,000 for his 80.5-point ride on Frontier Rodeo’s Cowboy Town in the Triple Crown Round.

“When I got done, I didn’t really think that score would hold but somehow it ended up staying there,” he said.

In his WCRA career Diaz has now won more than $120,000.
