While all eyes are on the World Champion race and who will take home that title at the end of the 2016 Professional Bull Riders Built Ford Tough Series World Finals there is another huge race that is shaping up quite nicely as well. There are another set of athletes that have quickly been gaining a large fan base over the last couple of years as the PBR travels coast to coast and spotlights some the best animal athletes in the sport of professional rodeo and bull riding today.
The huge race for the World Champion Bucking Bull will be in full effect as well once the first performance takes place a week from Thursday inside of the brand new T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. There have been several hundred bucking bulls that have made outs in the arena throughout the season but only nine will move on to contend for the title. Along with the distinction of being named the World Champion there are certain bragging rights that go along with that as well for the stock contractors that own them and bring them up and down the road each and every weekend.

Each and every year the bovine athletes of the Professional Bull Riders organization put on displays of perfection at every tour stop across the United States. That being said, these outs are watched very closely by the in arena judges, the bull riders themselves and the fans that cheer them on. When each season comes to a close the top bucking bulls in the business also make their way to the PBR World Finals for their chance at a world championship throughout the five days of competition.
This year there were nine bucking bulls that those in charge decided would have the opportunity of competing for the world champion bucking bull title. All scores from the entire season are wiped away and each of them start fresh as the race for the title begins. Each of the nine bovine athletes will buck out twice and the highest of the combined two bull scores will win the world championship title. Those competing this year are a staggering group that will surely give the bull riders and the fans some excitement down on the arena floor!
The nine bucking bulls competing for the world championship are: SweetPro’s Bruiser (D&H Cattle Co.), Pearl Harbor(Dakota Rodeo/Berger/Struve), Jared Allen’s Air Time (Jared Allen’s Pro Bull Team), SweetPro’s Long John (D&H Cattle Co.), Seven Dust (J.A.R.S. Bucking Bulls/Gene Owen), Crossfire (Dakota Rodeo/Berger/Struve), Cochise (Gene Owen/Jane Clark), Stone Sober (D&H Cattle Co.) and Hey Jack (J.A.R.S. Bucking Bulls/Gene Owens). So the heat is on as these athletes head west for the 2016 PBR World Finals!
