SAN ANTONIO – More than 2,000 tons of soil made it inside the AT&T Center Monday, meaning it’s almost time to rodeo, San Antonio.

The dirt was transported from an area near Charlotte to the arena via 70 truckloads.

A group of 12 volunteers loaded, moved and leveled the dirt in the process that lasts about seven hours.
