McCoy is the International Pro Rodeo Association’s world champ in the saddle bronc riding the past two years and set an IPRA record while winning the all-around title last January at IFR30 in Oklahoma City.
McCoy, from Tupelo, will be competing Friday night in his specialty event, as well as the bareback bronc riding and bull riding.
Also on hand will be 11-time steer wrestling world champ Dale Yerigan and four-time barrel racing champ Betty Roper.
Both Yerigan and Roper will also be competing on Friday.
In addition to the all-star cast, a big number of local cowboys and cowgirls will be competing here both nights. Included in that group is former world champ Terry Crow.
The rodeo is sponsored by the Miami Area Chamber of Commerce along with Miami Ford and Cheek Auto Mall.
