The Wrangler National Finals Rodeo wrapped up Saturday night in Las Vegas, and Ram Trucks was there to hand over keys to the cowboys. After a final round that saw multiple leaderboard changes, the rodeo champions made their way to an after-party at the Mirage Resort & Casino where new Ram Trucks were parked, washed and waxed for the winners.
Bob Hegbloom, Director of Ram Trucks, awarded Kaycee Field the keys to the Ram Top Gun Truck, a one-of-a-kind 3500 Heavy Duty Laramie Longhorn. Field won the Top Gun for earning the most money in a single rodeo event. As a bareback rider, we’re guessing Field’s drive back to his home of Payson, Utah will be much more comfortable than his 8-second rides on the arena floor.
In addition to the Top Gun award, Trevor Brazile, winner of three gold buckles, earned the keys to a 2011 Ram for being the highest earner at the WNFR, setting a new single rodeo record with $211,509 in winnings.
Congratulations to all the WNFR competitors. While the cowboys enjoy the fruits of their labor, check out RamZone’s WNFR Facebook photo album from Las Vegas, and stay tuned for behind-the-scenes coverage from the arena floor, including an exclusive video interview with Crash the rodeo clown.
