2020 PRCA Annual Report
The circuit system is an integral part of the PRCA. Every contestant belongs to a circuit and has an opportunity to advance to a national championship in the multimillion-dollar arm of the PRCA. The RAM National Circuit Finals Rodeo is typically held in Kissimmee, Fla., but because of COVID-19 restrictions in 2020 the championship was held in Greeley, Colo. RAM CIRCUIT SERIES
