2019 PRCA Rule Book
B10.3.2 Team Roping. Unless otherwise approved by the PRCA Board of Directors or the Director of Rodeo Administration, the money added to the team roping purse must be a minimum of the same as the money added to the purses of the other standard events. The Rodeo Committee may, at its discretion, add additional money to the team roping event provided the total purse for the team roping is not more than double the added money for each of the other standard events. B10.4 Finals. A Rodeo Committee requesting to hold a finals in its rodeo must add at least $12,500 purse money to each event which has a finals and have equal money in the team roping. In order to maintain a finals, a Rodeo Committee must increase its purse money by a minimum of 5% per year each year following initially adding $12,500 in purse money per event. Once the added purse money per event reaches $20,000 a Rodeo Committee is not required to add any more money in order to continue with a finals. If a Rodeo Committee has a finals in one or more events, the Rodeo Committee must add no less than half of the money offered in the event with a finals to each of the remaining PRCA required events. B10.4.1 Finals Performance. Unless otherwise approved at the time of rodeo approval, no finals in any event shall be scheduled during the same performance in which a regular go-round competition in that event is scheduled. B10.4.2 Eligibility for Final Head. Only the number of qualifying contestants, specified prior to the first performance, for a finals will be eligible to receive the final head. B10.4.3 Finals Contestants. Unless otherwise approved at the time of rodeo approval by the Director of Rodeo Administration, the standard procedure for selecting finals contestants shall be: A) Two or more head with a finals: Top 12. Ties will be broken by the highest marked ride or fastest time on any one head. If still tied, the tie will be broken by the second highest marked ride or time on any one head. If still tied, the next highest mark or time will be used, with the process repeated until the tie is broken. If still tied, all will be accepted. B) One head with a finals: Top 12. If 12th place split, drop all splits and use 11 contestants. If 11th place split resulting in more than 12, drop all those splits and go to top 10. If 10th place split resulting in more than 12, all must be accepted. B10.4.4 Eligibility. All qualifiers for a finals including additional contestants resulting from ties, shall be eligible to compete during the finals performance. Any deviation from this must be approved at the time of rodeo approval.
