Sin City, home of some of the most prolific rodeo events in the entire world, will soon welcome the Indian National Finals Rodeo from November 3rd-7th at the South Point Equestrian Center. Designed for only the best Indian cowboys and cowgirls, the INFR looks to “provide, promote, and preserve the advancement of Professional Indian Rodeo” according to their official website.
Since its conception in 1976 in Salt Lake City, UT, the INFR has brought together several associations from the northern hemisphere to compete year in and year out. With prizes being over $1,000,000, the stakes are high. Talent ranges from amateur to even PRCA riders. Standing as the largest and oldest Indian rodeo organization in the world, the competition allows from anywhere from 8-year-olds to 80-year-olds.
This year, you can find electrifying cowboys such as reigning bareback riding champion Buck Lunak or 2014 saddle bronc maestro Fran Marchand.
Each time fans leave jubilant and entertained as the cowboys and cowgirls are anything short of amazing.
The number one sport in America never fails to make an impression and the INFR is a prime example of that.
As the 40th Anniversary of the rodeo dawn upon us, be sure to check back for all news and highlights of the INFR. Detailed coverage this event is provided by Cowboy Lifestyle Network, the Ak-Chin Indian Community, and Earnhardt Auto Road Team.
CLN would also like to highlight Cooper Tire, an official sponsor of the 2015 Indian National Finals Rodeo, all while continuing to outfit cars, trucks and rodeo rigs with the highest-quality and most durable tires money can buy.
