Meet our “Race to the Rodeo” Winner and Guest

“YES” this is my first Rodeo……

Names: John (winner) and Emma Varga (guest)

Hometown: New Franklin, Ohio

The 2014 Wrangler NFR will be John and Emma’s first trip to the Wrangler NFR. Emma is John’s granddaughter and the star of his entry video, which captured the hearts of fans and garnered the most fan votes in the semi-final round of the contest. The Vargas are a 4-H family and love horses. Emma began trail riding when she was two-years-old and it’s her dream to meet a professional cowgirl and her granddad and Wrangler are helping make it a dream come true.

The Wrangler Network will be documenting John and Emma’s VIP Wrangler NFR experience. Tune in to The Wrangler NFR Countdown show Thursday, Dec. 4, at 6 p.m. PT/9 p.m. ET to hear from our special guests.

Each finalist had to answer “what does Wrangler mean to you” and “why do you want to go to the 2014 Wrangler NFR”
