RFD-TV’s The American Rodeo is an annual event that occurs at the Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The American is now “the world’s richest weekend in Western Sports” and will pay out $2.35 million through a series of qualifiers, The Semifinals, and the final event, RFD-TV’s The American.
