A new event at this year’s Mandan Rodeo Days is the Tribute to the 6-Pack Match Bronc Riding. This event will be held after the bull riding and before the huge fireworks display on July 4.

According to Darryl Howard, one of the Mandan Rodeo Days directors, the event will honor the legacy of the North Dakota 6-Pack bronc riders who dominated that pro rodeo event in the 1950s and early 1960s.

“All of the members of the 6-Pack have passed on,” he said, “but we want to keep the legacy of great bronc riding in North Dakota going and help bring back its strong heritage.”

The event will feature six champions representing the North Dakota Rough Riders, the North Dakota Rodeo Association, the PRCA Badlands Circuit, the North Dakota High School Rodeo Association, Mandan Rodeo Days and the Indian National Finals Rodeo.

The format for the match is winner-take-all with the champion receiving $1,000.
