As the summer break quickly approaches for the 2016 Professional Bull Riders Built Ford Tough Series season it was Sioux Falls, South Dakota that would be the center of attention this weekend. Earlier tonight it was the fifth time that the 15/15 Bucking Battle would commence this season and it was one that fans will want to watch over and over again for many years to come. As the day sheets and announcements came across the sound system earlier tonight it was known that this would be one of the toughest, if not THE toughest, battle yet this season.
This extra “performance” only happens eight times this year and as the BFTS rolled into the Denny Sandford Premier Center this year they wanted to bring the best of the best to the loyal fans as a huge thank you for their unwavering support of both the cowboys and bovine athletes. As the action was about to begin each and every fan inside of the sold out arena were on the edge of their seats. The reason was clear as it was man Vs. beast as the best of both sides came together for an intense 15 rides.
Wicked Splits The 2nd Top Bull Score In The 15/15
Over the last few years focus has made a switch from fans having their favorite bull rider to a much more encompassed mindset. The stock contractors and their bovine athletes have been making a huge impact across the country and many fans of the PBR have their favorite bucking bulls as well. That being said, when those favorites come up in the order more and more fans are hoping to see an amazing buck off and bull score. Tonight it was Boyd-Floyd / Bar D Cattle Company’s Pearl Harbor who take home the highest marked bull score receiving huge 46.25 point score!
J.B. Mauney Takes Home The 15/15 Win In Sioux Falls
