George Strait Team Roping Classic
The George Strait Team Roping Classic was first held in 1982 and has been as enduring and beloved as the musical
career of the legendary country music artist who established the event. In 2014 the winner received $750,000 in prizes while
the entire event gave away over one million dollars in prizes. Team roping is a long standing tradition in rodeo which dates
back to skills ranchers first perfected in 19th century Spain and later were used in the Americas as ranching expanded to
the New World. In the early 1800s there were a handful of loosely organized rodeo contests in the western United States and
northern Mexico, but it was only after the Civil War in 1872 that the first truly organized rodeo competition was held in
Cheyenne, Wyoming. Rodeo is incredibly popular in the western United States and Canada to this day and the professional rodeo
circuit is governed by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association and Women's Professional Rodeo Association.
notable athletes have emerged victorious at the George Strait Team Roping Classic but possibly the most interesting result
occurred during the 2009 tournament when Jade Corkill finished in first, second, and sixth place. This feat was nearly duplicated
in the 2013 George Strait Team Roping Classic when Garrett Tonozzi finished in first and second place. These sort of results
are only possible in team roping as cowboys can compete with different partners throughout the tournament.
