Today's rodeo invitational The American is sure to make history. Rural media group and event sponsor RFD-TV aims to bring rodeo to the forefront of competitive American one-day tournaments, like tennis and golf. And with a big payout — $2million is on the line for the top 15 athletes in six events.

The top 10 contestants in each sport — bull riding, bareback and bronc riding, barrel racing, tie-down roping, team roping and steer wrestling — were invited to compete. Additionally, five qualifiers sanctioned by the Professional Bull Riders, Pro Roughstock Series, United States Team Roping Championships, Better Barrel Racers and Ultimate Calf Roping national competitions will compete.
