As the action was set to begin on championship Sunday inside of the BOK Center many questions remained as to who would be able to take advantage of their opportunities and who would be forced to be sidelined by injury.  Although the thousands of fans in Tulsa, Oklahoma were left wondering how things would pan out at the end of the day the talk around the entire arena was how some of the top 35 bull riders in the world were doing whether it be good or bad.

For many today’s event conclusion would bring tears of joy while others would be sidelined for the forseeble future that would leave the world championship race wide open.  That being said next weekend’s event in Thackerville, Oklahoma brings a whole new set of issues that the cowboys will have to face.  This event will be outdoors in the middle of the summer heat so it is one that the fans look forward to but the elite cowboys of the Built Ford Tough Series dread each and every year.

Round two was, in essence, complete domination by the bucking bulls who displayed their power to the thousands of fans in attendance.  After a rough start to the event in round one things did not get any better for the top bull riders in the world  as only seven of the 35 bull riders in the round were able to tame their bovine counterparts to earn a qualified ride score.  Some of those on the bubble came up big tonight to all but earn their back into the elite Built Ford Tough Series.

Veteran bull rider Stormy Wing who has been cut from tour for some time made the most of a dismal round two after splitting the second position in the round.  Along with Wing, who earned an 86.75 score, struggling superstar Shane Proctor also put up that effort to take home some much needed championship points.  That being said. no one could match the efforts of surging sophomore Cooper Davis who wins his second consecutive round of the weekend with a huge 87.25 point ride aboard Psycho Path.

In the championship round it was once again the stars of the weekend that would take center stage and make the final 15 rides in Tulsa very exciting to watch.  After a great round two for the veteran, Wing, he was riding a high that would continue on through the championship round that carried him to yet another qualified ride on the weekend.  More eyebrows would raise as the current number one man in the world would make a very interesting decision that would have huge impacts in the race as early as next week in Thackerville.

Kaique Pacheco would gain a minimal 66 point ride and ultimately pick up some event points that would barely keep him in the number one position going into next week’s event.  Along with these two would be Cooper Davis that would put up another score as well as the Championship Round winner, rookie sensation Jess Lockwood.  He matched up with Legacy to earn the only 90 point ride of the weekend in a ride that set the fans inside of the BOK Center into a frenzy.

Once the hard fought three rounds were concluded earlier this afternoon it was once again Cooper Davis that would take home the event title win, in turn, pitching a perfect 100% on the second half of the season.  After today’s huge win he continued to surge up the world standings leader board as he moved solidly into the second position moving forward.  Things could change in any moment as Davis sits just over 20 points behind the current world number one, Kaique Pacheco.
