National Finals Steer Roping Leaving Guthrie For Kansas

National Finals Steer Roping Leaving Guthrie For Kansas

The National Finals Steer Roping has a new home. After five years in Guthrie, Okla., the event is moving to the Kansas Star Arena.


The arena, located in Mulvane, Kan., about 10 miles south of Wichita, opened in June 2013, about 18 months after the Kansas Star Casino & Hotel opened. The Kansas Star is a Boyd Gaming property, one of 22 in the United States.


"Having a national championship - the first one in Kansas - is great," said Kansas Star Arena director Tim Lanier. "It's a marquee event for us."


The NFSR will take place November 7 - 8, with performances beginning at 7:30 p.m. That's when defending World Champion Steer Roper Trevor Brazile, who has won a record 19 gold buckles, will go for No. 20.


Boyd Gaming has already helped with added money to the purse, which totals $210,000.


"This is a perfect spot to have this event," said PRCA Steer Roping Director J.P. Wickett. "Mulvane is centrally located for a lot of steer ropers. I'm glad they're on board, and that we'll be partners with Boyd Gaming. I'm excited to go there."


The Kansas Star Arena has seating for 2,500 fans. Tickets are available at kansasstararena.com and at ticketmaster.com.


The Kansas Star Casino & Hotel has 300 guest rooms, which will make the two-day event convenient for the contestants and fans.
