Crown Royal
& the 2011 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo

Will you in Las Vegas for the 2011 NASCAR Championship week? Are you wondering if there is anything else new or exciting to do while there. Why not check out the 2011 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo!?!

The 1st National Finals Rodeo (NFR) was held in Dallas in 1959. Later, it was held in Los Angeles and Oklahoma City before coming to Las Vegas in 1985 with the help of Las Vegas visionary Benny Binion.

The Wrangler NFR is one of the hottest tickets in town, and it has sold out its last 220 performances (over 20 years worth). Held at the Tom & Mack Center of the University of Las Vegas, Nevada the NFR awards the best in bareback riding, saddle bronc riding, bull riding, steer wrestling, barrel roping, team and tie-down roping. It is the largest prize money rodeo in the world. In fact, it paid out over $5.5 million to contestants just last year.

For the fourth consecutive year MGM Grand is “Home of the Champions” as the resort hosts more than 25 cowboys throughout the 10 days of competition. The resort will offer guests the opportunity to watch the telecast live each night inside the 740-seat Hollywood Theatre. All NFR fans in attendance will enjoy nightly contestant appearances, drink specials, door prizes and giveaways.

Throughout the 10-day event, fans can visit the “Crown Royal Gold Buckle Zone” located at Centrifuge, the resort’s entertainment bar featuring live music, dancing, shows, drink specials and drawings in an energetic environment, where eight-time All-Around World Champion Trevor Brazile’s Championship Gold Buckles and Saddles will be on display
