The 2012 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo has been widely popular, just as is the case most years. This year, though, it’s been a record-breaking attendance.
The PRCA has reported that 105,779 have attended the championship through six nights; now the NFR is on pace to break the record for a 10-night attendance of 175,903 set in 2003. Each night has been a record-setter per go-round, except for Monday’s fifth round.
That’s pretty phenomenal, considering this is the hottest ticket in town every December.
