As the entire Rodeo Round Up team looks ahead and gets ready to bring you our live and exclusive coverage from AT&T Cowboy Stadium in Arlington, Texas information is coming in regarding the weekend’s events. The exciting action will not only happen inside but many interactive displays as well as entertainment will be happening outside prior to the start times each day. There was some information that was announced today regarding times and the line-ups for what will be a fun filled day of shopping and enjoyment as you flock to AT&T Cowboy Stadium for the PBR’s Choctaw Casino Iron Cowboy Powered By Kawasaki event!
Our 2016 coverage will begin Thursday night as we invade the city for the official weigh in of Dakota Rodeo/Chad Berger’s World Champion Bucking Bull Asteroid. The Rodeo Round Up team will be live and getting you all inside the excitement with photo galleries of the weigh-in, exclusive interviews and event recap once things wrap up. On Friday we will also be busy bringing you the audio from the official press conference that happens each and every year before the start of the events Saturday afternoon!
As the second major of the 2016 Professional Bull Riders Built Ford Tough Series begins underneath the lights of the legendary AT&T Cowboy Stadium a true testament of endurance and strength will be on display. The Choctaw Casino Iron Cowboy Powered By Kawasaki is simply a ride or go home style event. In the end only the strongest of the strong will survive and be crowned champion. Throughout the event one bull will be designated and if that rider makes the eight second buzzer he will pocket an extra amount of cash to make their time in the Lone Star state something to remember. Bad Boy Mowers are excited to make a huge announcement that will bring even more excitement to the arena!
Bad Boy Mowers have announced that they will be putting up a sweet $25,000 cash prize for a bull that will be deemed the “Bad Boy Mowers Bounty Bull”. The object is pretty simple, whatever cowboy’s bull is chosen for the distinct honor he will pocket the prize money if he can cover his bovine counterpart to the eight second buzzer. With that being said, if the cowboy is not able to cover his bull for the eight seconds that $25,000 will then roll over to the next 2016 major event for another shot of the cowboy making the eight second buzzer.
The weekend’s festivities include not only the Iron Cowboy but another huge event that will once again take place in conjunction with it. The RFD-TV’s The American, the richest one-day rodeo in western sports history, will take place the following day to cap off a huge weekend of professional rodeo and bull riding entertainment. That being said, fans will be making their way to Arlington, Texas to witness the spectacle for themselves and will be expecting some great shopping and entertainment to go along with all of the action inside the arena.
The 2016 FanX will once again allow the thousands of rodeo and bull riding fans to show up early to enjoy some great interactive shows, musical entertainment and fantastic shopping opportunities. Many exciting things are lined up for this year as the weather looks BEAUTIFUL for everyone to enjoy all that the FanX will have to offer. Doors to the FanX will open at 10 A.M. on Saturday and 8 A.M. on Sunday and it will be located once again in the AT&T Stadium Silver Lot No. 4, on the corner of Randol Mill Road and Legends Way and will be free to the public both days.

Darrel Kisler says
What is the bull riders ERA tour rooster? I have never seen it published. Is there any conflict between the PBR and the ERA?
Jason Hetland says
Darrel the ERA has not made any announcements regarding the bull riding event. The only bull rider to publically say he is on the ERA roster so far has been Cody Teel. Even with him saying that nothing has been put out on an official basis.
