Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association Saddle Bronc Rider and fan favorite Wade Sundell has a great weekend at the history making event, RFD-TV’s The American, the richest one day rodeo in the sport of professional rodeo.  He started off with great ride aboard the bucking horse Lynx Mountain to a tune of 90 points as he catapulted into the “shoot out” round for a chance at his share of the $2 million dollar payout.  In the “shoot out” round he was given the horse Stampede Warrior which he rode for a cool 92.50 to win the $100,000 paycheck inside AT&T Stadium.
