The Fort Worth Super Shootout®, January 19, was designed with both seasoned and non-seasoned rodeo fans in mind.
This competition format is the next generation of rodeo and will feature champions from eight of the greatest rodeos across the country competing in bareback, saddle bronc, bull riding, barrel racing and steer wrestling.
Contestants will compete for a $100,000 purse, and will represent the rodeo organization from which they were a previous champion in a tournament style match. Along with last year’s Fort Worth Rodeo champions, other rodeos that will be featured are Rodeo Austin; Rodeo Houston; San Angelo Stock Show & Rodeo; National Western Stock Show and Rodeo; San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo, Cheyenne Frontier Days and Calgary Stampede. Each of the eight contestants per event will compete once with the four fastest times or highest scores advancing to the Championship Shootout. In a break from tradition where animals that are competed on in the roughstock events are randomly drawn, the contestants are going to be able to choose their animals.
Get ready for new styles of commentary and interaction with the contestants, NFR quality animals and the opportunity to get behind the scenes information from some of the top rodeo athletes in the nation.
