This NFR Round 3 Results and Recap is brought to you by our friends at Wrangler. Through the years, regardless of company changes, what Wrangler stands for has stayed the same. They vow to uphold the western way of life and support all the men and women who are doing the same. To this day, you will see Wrangler being represented by some of the top competitors in the PRCA, PBR, WPRA and so many more. Western celebrities like George Strait, Jon Pardi, and Cody Johnson are just a few of the name celebrities that not only wear the brand but live the brand. To me, that is what Wrangler is all about, living the brand, that is the Wrangler Difference.
