Ram Truck is back in the saddle for the 2011 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo Dec. 1-10, Las Vegas. Like last year, Ram will help honor the top cowboy or cowgirl who earns the most money in a single event across the grueling 10-day Professional Rodeo Cowboy’s Association ProRodeo finals with the Ram Truck Top Gun Award.
In 2010, Trevor Brazile bested J.W. Harris to capture the inaugural Ram Truck Top Gun Award to earn a specially wrapped Ram 3500 Heavy Duty (below).
“It put a whole new perspective on this NFR ... there are a lot of times when you’re roping for a championship and you don’t take chances, (but) you’ll take a lot of chances for a Ram truck.”
An estimated 119 people will be competing for the Top Gun Award this year.
Upping the ante this year, the winner of the Ram Truck Top Gun Award at the WNFR will be awarded a one-of-a-kind, wrapped Ram 3500 Heavy Duty Longhorn Laramie truck, a one-of-a-kind Ram Truck Top Gun-branded commemorative rifle and a Montana Silversmiths buckle.
In addition to being recognized during the 10th round of the WNFR at the Thomas and Mack Arena, the winner will also be celebrated during the PRCA’s World Champions Awards Show and 10th Night After Party, in conjunction with the Mirage and Rodeo Vegas.
