WPRA barrel racing and bull riding. It’s an exciting sport that requires patience, bravery, and just a pinch of insanity to perform well in. The champion is determined by season earnings. Every contestant will perform once every day. At the end of every round, there are two champions for every event. The best cumulative time/score will ultimately win the event.
CBS Sports Network provides the opportunity to watch the Wrangler NFR and other championships throughout the year. There’s always something on, and this event in particular promises to be riveting for a myriad of reasons.
