Polaris Ranger is the New UTV of the PRCA
There is no better UTV than the powerful Polaris Ranger to represent the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association, and now it’s official. In early March 2015, the Ranger was selected as the official UTV of the PRCA, the Ram National Circuit Finals Rodeo and Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. According to Karl Stressman, Commissioner for the PRCA, “Given that the majority of our members and fans reside in rural America, this partnership is a perfect fit. Polaris Ranger’s commitment to ProRodeo truly shows the marketing efficacy of this sport and we are proud to have them on board.”
The Ranger and professional rodeo cowboys have a lot in common. They’re both tough, durable, appeal to adrenaline junkies and showcase the kind of recreation beloved by outdoor enthusiasts who live in off-road country—or wish they did. This is a new partnership, and the Ranger is one of a handful of exclusive nationwide sponsors (and the first UTV sponsor). In celebration of this collaboration, the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo has been renamed as the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo Presented by Polaris Ranger.
Let ’er Buck!
Whether fans prefer riding broncos, bulls or UTVs, the excitement all kicks off in April at the PRCA World Champions and RNCFR Champions in Florida. Winners of both of these rodeo finals will be awarded a new Polaris Ranger. Fundraising has been underway all year long, and the Justin Cowboy Crisis Fund will also benefit from this new partnership. However, the rodeo organizations aren’t the only ones amped up about the partnership.
According to the Polaris marketing manager Beth Shimanski, “Polaris Ranger is excited to continue our support of the sport of rodeo. ProRodeo participants are some of the most passionate and dedicated individuals, and this partnership lets us celebrate them and their fans. We look forward to an exciting rodeo season.”
