RFD-TV’s THE AMERICAN is the results of a full year of work. Qualifying events are held across the country, throughout the calendar year as ropers and riders hope to compete in Arlington during the world’s richest one-day rodeo!
RFD-TV’s The American is an annual event that occurs each year at the Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX. The American is now “the world’s richest weekend in Western Sports” and will pay out $2.35 million through a series of qualifiers, The Semi-Finals, and the final event, RFD-TV’s The American. The event unites the top athletes in the world from the PRCA and pits them against underdogs who advance from The American Semi-Finals, together to battle for the biggest single paycheck of their lives.
