PRCA to Host Inaugural Permit Finals in October

The PRCA has announced a new event for permit holders, the inaugural Permit Finals in Waco, Texas.

Hosted in conjunction with the Heart O’ Texas Rodeo, the Top 10 permit holders in each event (including breakaway roping and barrel racing) will compete for more than $100,000 in prize money over three Go-Rounds.

“We are proud to continue our partnership with PRCA and the wonderful relationship when it comes to new opportunities. The PRCA Permit Finals represents another great chance for us to provide for the contestants and bring championship rodeo back to Waco,” President and CEO of Extraco Events Center Wes Allison said. We believe in the future of ProRodeo and look forward to hosting the PRCA Permit Finals for many years to come.”

Not only is there a large payday on the line in Texas, the Top 5 will also advance to the Permit Challenge in Las Vegas on Dec. 1.

The PRCA currently has more permit holders than ever before with 1,700 total.

“The Permit Finals creates another opportunity for our young, up-and-coming contestants to showcase their skills as they prepare to take the next step in their ProRodeo careers,” PRCA CEO Tom Glause said in a news releas. “We are excited for this partnership with the Heart O’ Texas committee and can’t think of a better place to have this event than in Waco, Texas.”
