Rodeo star Trevor Brazile wins Dodge Ram from Chapman Dodge

When the 2010 National Final Rodeo wrapped up on Dec. 11, rodeo history was made and Chapman Dodge Chrysler Jeep was chosen to play a role in it. In the end, fans had the chance to see Trevor Brazile take his eighth all-around title, making him the first cowboy in history to earn eight all-around gold buckles.

In addition to the title and cash prizes, Brazile went home this year with a little something extra from Chapman, Ram Trucks and the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association: the Top Gun Award. He received a special-edition Dodge Ram, loaded with a custom belt buckle and a Ram Trucks’ Top Gun-branded rifle.

“We couldn’t be any prouder to have been selected as the one dealership in the nation to deliver this unique Ram Truck to this uniquely talented cowboy,” said Don Hamrick, general manager of Chapman Dodge Chrysler Jeep. “When Brazile first saw the truck, his eyes lit up almost as big as they do when he’s bringing down a steer.”

Ram Trucks have a long history in the rodeo ring, and Chapman is proud of its 20-year partnership with one of the toughest sports in the country. The Dodge Ram has been awarded the Motor Week 2010 Driver’s Choice Award for Best Pickup Truck for the second year in a row.

“Having the world champion here at the dealership really adds to Chapman’s Rodeo Sale Days that we’re running through the entire month of December,” said Rick “Cowboy” Maples, Chapman’s fleet manager, who presented Brazile with the keys to his prize. “You don’t need to be a cowboy to get a new Dodge, Ram, Chrysler or Jeep and as long as you’re earning $350 weekly, our in-house financing will approve you and give you up to $5,000 in cash back.”
