Professional Bull Riding Features Thrills & Spills

The 2013 Salinas Champion is Mike Lee

SALINAS, CA, July 18, 2013 – A crowd of 8,969 sat on the edge of their seats on Wednesday night watching the Professional Bull Riders take on some nasty bulls at the Salinas Sports Complex during their stop on the PBR’s Touring Pro Division Tour in Salinas. The attendance was up 14.9% over 2012 numbers. The PBR continues to be one of the most popular events held during Big Week each year. The champion this year was Mike Lee from Decatur, TX with a total of 176 points on two bulls. Mike took home the Salinas PBR buckle back in 2006; his win tonight earned him more than $9000. Second place went to Tyler Bingham of Honeyville, UT with a score of 167.0 on two bulls. Third place went to Cody Tyler White, who won the long round with a 90 point ride on LL Cool J, and 4th went to Shane Proctor, who will ride on Saturday at the California Rodeo Salinas, hoping to defend his 2012 championship at that event.

Highlights of the evening included Justin McBride commentating from behind the chutes and giving the crowd an inside look and more personal information about the riders and even an up and coming stock contractor, Kaley Mae Hook. Kaley hopes to make a name for herself in a business dominated by men. The fireworks at the end of the show were also a crowd pleaser.
