Corpus Christi, TX, January 9, 2024 —

Stephanie Fryar (Waco, Texas), made history on January 7, 2024 at the WCRA Stampede at the E with her swift barrel racing run atop “Fast Frank”. The 42-year-old athlete set the bar high as she was the first to go in the round, and her time of 15.323 seconds was the most groundbreaking performance of the $400,000 event. Fryar was one of only three athletes who were still eligible for the Triple Crown of Rodeo in the final round. Fryar edged out the competition and secured her second consecutive WCRA Major win following her victory at October’s WCRA Rodeo Carolina.

If Fryar wins May’s Rodeo Corpus Christi presented by Miller Lite, she will be the second and final recipient of the WCRA Triple Crown of Rodeo $1 Million Bonus.

The Triple Round of Rodeo Contender has participated in seven WCRA events since 2020 and has achieved one runner-up title before the Rodeo Carolina. She has earned almost $100,000 in WCRA earnings. During the latest competition in Guthrie, the now two-time WCRA Champion emerged victorious by defeating Kindyl Scruggs (Southhaven, Mississippi) and Cari Titsworth (Mcalester, Oklahoma).

Tickets for Rodeo Corpus Christi presented by Miller Lite go on sale to the public March 1, 2024 but season tickets, VIP tickets and other upgraded experiences can be purchased now by calling the Buc Days office, 361.882.3242. Don’t miss your opportunity to see Fryar compete for the final $1 million bonus at Rodeo Corpus Christi!
