Richards, de la Cruz Win Appeal, Join WNFR Field

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – The grievance appeal filed by team ropers Tom Richards and Cesar de la Cruz has been ruled to be valid by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association and they have been placed in the draw for the Dec. 4-13 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas.

The decision bumps header Chad Masters and heeler Kinney Harrell down one spot to 16th in the Windham Weaponry High Performance PRCA World Standings, and out of the WNFR lineup.

Masters and Harrell now have the right to enter into the same three-stage Grievance Procedure (Bylaw B11.3) which granted relief to Richards and de la Cruz.
