 National Finals Rodeo plans to put $72.5 million in upgrades to UNLV’s Thomas & Mack Center to use for December’s finals, representatives announced Thursday.

A 36,000-square-foot Thomas & Mack addition that includes a 2,500-square-foot observation deck overlooking the Las Vegas Strip will be converted into The Shoe, a Western-themed hospitality and interactive experience that will also provide a new entrance door from the northwest side of the arena.


The arena addition, set to be completed next month, will feature interactive areas, the Walk of Champions, saddle displays and several televisions, according to a release from Las Vegas Events, which sponsors NFR. The Shoe will also be the site of CBS Sports’ rodeo pre-show and live feeds of different camera broadcast angles of the event.

National Finals Rodeo season officially spurred off Thursday with the annual promotional photo shoot. This year it was at the Pioneer Saloon in Goodsprings, which seemed a great place for it, considering the Pioneer was established in 1913 and still offers palpable Wild West ambiance.

According to lore, a guy was murdered while cheating at cards at the Pioneer in 1915. You still can see the bullet holes.

The Pioneer also is where Clark Gable reportedly sat at the bar in stunned and mournful silence while volunteers trekked to the top of nearby Mount Potosi on mules where Gable’s wife, Carole Lombard, had perished in a plane crash on Jan. 16, 1942. You can see the infamous rocky ledge from the courtyard out back that is dedicated to the memory of the beloved actress.

EDMONTON — The Canadian Finals Rodeo may be moving to another city in 2017 after the Canadian Professional Rodeo Association declined the latest CFR proposal put forward by the Oilers Entertainment Group and the City of Edmonton.

The CPRA said in a media release Wednesday its board of directors unanimously voted down the proposal last week “after careful consideration.

The CPRA said it offered the city and OEG the grace period “out of respect to the coming 43-year history” in Edmonton.

“From our perspective, this is about our members, fans and sponsors of the Canadian Professional Rodeo Association. After several months of back and forth proposals, we felt that the CPRA, OEG and the City of Edmonton all made concessions in an attempt to come to an agreement on the proposal,” CPRA GM Dan Eddy said.

Though he was unceremoniously dumped by his final-round bull at the Professional Bull Riders World Finals, Cooper Davis clinched the 2016 world title and earned a $1 million bonus check.

Davis, 22, who is from the East Texas town of Buna, entered the final round on Sunday in a close race with Brazilian Kaique Pacheco of Decatur after both men made qualified rides against their fifth-round bulls early in the performance at the T-Mobile Arena.


Davis gained momentum as the result of winning Round 5 with a score of 91 on a bovine named Catfish John (Dakota Rodeo-Chad Berger/Clay Struve/Miller). When Pacheco was bucked off in the final round (Round 6), Davis mathematically clinched the title regardless of his performance in the finals.

After the last bull had bucked, Davis edged Pacheco in the world race 5,930 points to 5,441.58. Two-time world champion J.B. Mauney, who was bucked off in both the fifth and sixth rounds, finished third with 4,822.50 points.

Oklahoma cowboy Ryan Dirteater finished fourth in the world title with 4,547.91 points. Dirteater finished as the World Finals Event Champion, meaning he earned the most world standings points after competing in six rounds.

“Once again, this year will be even better than last year with an additional increase in prize dollars —  $350,000 in cash along with saddles, gold buckles, coats, horse trailers, and other product prizes —increasing the total value of the winnings to over $800,000,” says INFR General Manager Donna Hoyt.  “As the payouts continue to increase, the popularity of the event continues to grow, and as more people hear about us, we’re hopeful of setting new record numbers of fans this year as well.”

Rex (Wambli Sapa) Carolin, a Lakota artist and member of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe, will be displaying a fully painted tipi telling the prophecy of the black snake. The title of the tipi is “Water is Life” (Mni Wiconi). He is asking if anyone would like to be a part of this tipi by leaving their hand print on it. The tipi will be displayed at the Indian National Finals Rodeo on November 7th through the 9th and then moved to the Gene Autry Museum in Burbank, California for display on November 11-12.

InterTribal Buffalo Council (ITBC), a sponsor of the Indian National Finals Rodeo, supports the “Water is Life” tipi display.

A new addition to the pageantry is a Parade of Nations where tribes sponsor their flag in the Grand Entry.  “A lot of our top athletes come from reservations that don’t have casino gaming to help sponsor them,” says Commissioner Bo Vocu (Oglala Sioux), “so displaying their tribal banner shows support for INFR and the members who make it all possible.”  And, if one of their members wins a Go-Round, they get to display their tribal flag at the victory lap and the buckle ceremony.

Not sponsored by INFR, but under the support umbrella of the organization, are two more new features, a return of the powwow and a hand/stick game tournament that both offer cash purses.  “Historically, Indian rodeos used to include a powwow and we’re glad to see that return of tradition,” says INFR Commissioner Frank Whitecalfe (3 Affiliated Tribes, North Dakota).

Some of the top rodeo talent in the nation converged on Hastings over the weekend for what turned out to be a memorable 25th anniversary Oregon Trail Rodeo celebration Friday through Sunday at Adams County Fairgrounds.

The heavy rains that began flooding portions of the Tribland area on Sunday stayed away during the competition, which played out under skies that alternated between sunny and overcast throughout the weekend.


Many of those responsible for bringing the rodeo to Hastings a quarter of a century earlier were recognized during the event, a fitting tribute to those visionaries who helped grow Hastings into one of the more rodeo-friendly destinations in Nebraska.

The Phoenix 500 is scheduled to be televised live on NBC beginning at 2:30 p.m. Eastern Time and broadcast live on the Motor Racing Network and SiriusXM Radio, Channel 90.
