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. The event unites the top athletes in the world from the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association and pits them against underdogs who advance from The American Semifinals to battle for the biggest single paycheck of their lives.
