Just as there’s a driver’s permit before earning a full license, PRCA contestants hold a permit before they earn their cards. The Permit Challenge is held along with the Wold Famous Benny Binion’s Bucking Horse and Bull Sale when up-and-coming ProRodeo stars have a chance to compete in Las Vegas for the crown of top permit member.
Competing under the bright lights of Vegas before they’re eligible for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo presented by Polaris RANGER gives them a leg up in future competitions, and gives fans a closer look at the newest athletes.
“The Permit Members Challenge is a positive and important step for permit members, and is a great experience for younger cowboys to compete in Las Vegas”, said PRCA Commissioner Karl Stressman. “It gives a new group of competitors their time in the spotlight, and rewards them for their accomplishments. The Permit Challenge showcases the future of the PRCA.”
Many of the contestants in the challenge participated in PRCA camps, working with seasoned pros to learn the ropes of ProRodeo.
It is not uncommon for contestants in the Permit Challenge to return to Las Vegas to compete at the WNRF.
