The National Finals Rodeo has the perfect sponsor in Wrangler jeans and the perfect locale in Las Vegas. Wrangler makes sense. The jean brand has built its reputation on toughness and can anyone imagine anything tougher than trying to stay on bronco or bull that really does not want to cooperate. However, the city of Las Vegas is bit of a challenge to explain when it comes to National Finals Rodeo.
The Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association first organized the NFR to be held in Dallas and soon after Oklahoma City. Sin City would become the home for the event after building the Thomas & Mack Center. The organizers chose this city for more than its location though. Oklahoma City may have been a natural location given its multi-million dollar state fairgrounds, but the city does not quite have the quantity or quality of hotel and entertainment options.
This is an important factor when considering the 10-day event draws nearly 200,000 attendants. The Strip is dominated by everything country during this time, but no one is going to complain. This event has grown along with the city, which has always been an oasis in the desert for decades but has recently taken the idea of entertainment to a new level. Similarly, the NFR has raised the profile of the event as a singular event and the sport of rodeo on a national level for the entire season.
Still, the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo is the most important 10 days of the year for the sport. It is the event that can make a cowboys year, even before beginning the new season a couple months later. However, it has become tradition for a single cowboy to create a dynasty. Trevor Brazile is the latest and perhaps the greatest. He ranks up there with Ty Murray, Tom Ferguson, and Larry Mahon.
