This is one of the last PRCA Rodeos where money won counts towards the National Finals Rodeo (NFR) in Las Vegas. Contestants in every event over the past four years have relied on their performances at the Apache Stampede to secure their coveted spots at the NFR. Fans will not want to miss the exhilarating competition expected to take place in their own backyards.

Starting on Friday, fans can expect appearances from Oklahoma natives Hunter Herrin (Tie-Down Roper), Brett Custer (Bull Rider), Trey Kimzey (Bull Rider) Chuck Swisher (Bullfighter), Oklahoma transplant Dusty Tuckness (Bullfighter) and Apache local Bryson Sechrist (Tie-Down Roper).

And in case you missed it, Bryson Sechrist stopped by the KLAW101 EZ Go Studios this morning, to talk about this weekend's upcoming event and the advantages and disadvantages of being a home-town boy at the Stampede.
