Slack is defined as an overflow of contestants. We are limited to nine performances and a short-go, with approximately ten contestants per event in each performance, 1200 contestants could not fit into the nightly performances. That is why we have slack!
In San Angelo, slack is two full go rounds in timed events including Calf Roping, Team Roping and Steer Wrestling. Contestants compete for the fastest time in each round for a piece of the prize money. Contestants with an average time ranking in the top 10 of all runs, including those from the PRCA performances, will qualify to compete in the PRCA finals! All of these events will be held in the Foster Communications Coliseum.
Monday event order: Team Roping Go #1, Team Roping Go #2, Steer Wrestling Go #1, Calf Roping Go #1
Tuesday event order: Steer Wrestling Go #2, Calf Roping Go #2
Both days start at 7:00 a.m.
Barrel Slack is April 5 at 9:00 a.m. in the 1st Community Credit Union Spur Arena. Barrell Racing is set-up in a progressive format. All contestants participate in the 1st Go during slack, then the top 120 will advance to the performances.
