Cowboys from all across the U.S. and Canada work all year in hopes of qualifying for the National Finals Rodeo( NFR), the PRCA's premier championship, sometimes referred to as the "Superbowl of Rodeos".
The NFR is held each December in Las Vegas at the Thomas and Mack Center on the campus of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. The top 15 regular-season finishers in each event qualify for the NFR and compete for prize money. In December, 2001, this prize money exceeded $4.5 million.
