PROFESSIONAL BULL RIDING BUCKING INTO TOWN WEDNESDAY JULY 16TH

16TH SHOW TO FEATURE TOP RIDERS AND FINALE BUSHWACKER V. MIKE LEE MATCHUP
07/15/2014
The 14th annual Professional Bull Riding Touring Pro Division event, presented by Salinas Valley Ford, bucks into the Salinas Sports Complex on Wednesday July 16th. Gates open at 5pm and bull riding action starts at 7pm. Tickets are still available at our box office at 1034 N. Main Street in Salinas. Walk up any time after 10am until after the show starts. Tickets range from $10 for kids ages 2-12 to $55 for box seats. The sales have been up as fans want to secure their spot to see not only some of the top 40 bull riders in action, but also to see the finale of the event-a match up like no other.

World Champion Mike Lee, who is also the defending Salinas PBR Champ, will face off with World Champion bucking bull Bushwacker. If Lee rides Bushwacker he will win $10,000. The matchup is presented by El Primo Western Wear. Lee is excited to get on Bushwacker for the 3rd time and he hopes it is a charm because the first two attempts ended at 3.31 and 2.49 seconds. Bushwacker has been perfect this season, going 9-for-9.

The main event, before the matchup, will feature Lee among other hot riders such as J.W. Harris, Chase Outlaw and Kody Lostroh. Ten out of the twelve bulls in the final round have either bucked at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo or the Professional Bull Riding finals. After the main event and matchup, there will be a fireworks show. The Coors Banquet Bull Xing Cantina will be open during and after the show featuring live music by The Courtney Lynn Band from 9pm-12:30am. The tent closes at 1am. There is a $10 cover charge and you must be 21 to enter.
