The winning cowboys and cowgirls in each of seven events will go on to represent North Dakota and South Dakota at the RAM National Circuit Finals Rodeo on April 6-9, 2017, in Kissimmee, Fla.


For a few cowboys, their ticket was punched well before they came to Minot.

For others, it came down to the final performance on Sunday.

Year-end winners who won the most money throughout the season, and average winners, those who earned the most points or had the fastest times throughout the four performances in Minot, will compete at the RNCFR.


Ty Breuer, Mandan, N.D. finished his 2016 circuit rodeo season as the year-end and the average champion.

The 26-year-old cowboy won checks in all four rounds in Minot and won the average with a total of 334 points on four head.

He has a busy fall and winter ahead of him; he gets married to fiancée Kelli Nutter in two weeks, then has qualified to compete at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas in early December. This will be his second time to compete at the Wrangler NFR.

Chason Floyd, Buffalo, S.D. earned the year-end Badlands title, and Taz Olson, Prairie City, S.D., had a combined time of 19.4 seconds on four runs to win the average title.
