PRCA Standings Shuffle: 28 Move Up In Top 15

The deciding factor in who qualified for the 61st annual Wrangler National Finals Rodeo and the Clem McSpadden National Finals Steer Roping boiled down to the final 19 rodeos of the regular season, worth a collective $909,869 Sept. 23-30.

It was a last chance to climb the 2019 PRCA | RAM World Standings during the regular season not just for those outside of the Top 15, but also for those seeking a gold buckle, as every dollar counts in the race for the world title. 

Of course, nothing is official until the standings have been audited and made official later this fall. As it unofficially stands, as of Oct. 1, 28 cowboys moved up within the Top 15 of their respective events. 

Bull rider Garrett Smith’s final push for the 2019 regular season resulted in the biggest jump in the world standings last week as the Idaho cowboy climbed five spots up to seventh. Smith’s jump came via winning the Poway (Calif.) Rodeo and the Sheriff’s PRCA Rodeo in San Bernardino, Calif.

Smith is a two-time qualifier for the Wrangler NFR (2016-17) and the winner of some of this year’s biggest rodeos. Smith won the RAM National Circuit Finals Rodeo in Kissimmee Fla., the Williams Lake (British Columbia) Stampede and was co-champion of the Home of Champions Rodeo in Red Lodge, Mont. 

The following cowboys saw their positions improve in the Top 15 of the world standings during the final week of the regular season.

With 65 days to go until the Wrangler NFR and 52 days until the NFSR, some cowboys will take a well-deserved break before the biggest competition of the year. Others will hit the ground running for the start of the 2020 season by competing at the RAM Turquoise Circuit Finals Rodeo (Oct. 4-5), the RAM California Circuit Finals Rodeo (Oct. 4-6) and the RAM Badlands Circuit Finals Rodeo (Oct. 4-6).
