PUEBLO, Colo. – This weekend, in conjunction with NASCAR’s GoBowling.com Pocono 400, the world’s premier bull riding series, the Professional Bull Riders, will bring two of its stars to the Tricky Triangle, giving Pennsylvania bull riding and NASCAR racing fans an up close-and-personal look at the brawniest athletes in sports today.
Big Kahuna and Get Western (Mike Miller Bucking Bulls), two bulls who buck on the PBR’s elite Built Ford Tough Series will be on display in the Fan Fair fan zone from Friday – Sunday, Aug. 1-3. These bulls have been competing on the PBR’s BFTS for the past two years, making short work of some of the sports’ most talented bull riders, to include current No. 8 PBR rider Kasey Hayes, Sean Willingham, and 2009 PBR World Champion Kody Lostroh.
They will be on display daily. Sprint Cup Drivers Reed Sorenson who drives the #36 for Tommy Baldwin Racing and David Gilliland, driver of the #38 Front Row Motorsports Ford, will be stopping by the PBR display to meet Big Kahuna and Get Western, take photos and interact with fans. Sorenson will appear Saturday from 10-11 a.m. and Gilliland will stop by on Sunday from 10-10:30 a.m.
The PBR’s appearance at Pocono Raceway will help bring awareness to the PBR Built Ford Tough Series event presently scheduled for Oct. 10-11 at Allentown, Pennsylvania’s new PPL Center. The PBR will be the first-ever dirt event in the new arena. This event marks only the fifth time the PBR has visited Pennsylvania and the first time the sport has stopped in Allentown. Tickets for the event start at $15 and are available at the PPL Center Box Office.
Allentown is the last stop on the 2014 Built Ford Tough Series regular season schedule. Two weeks later the Top 35 bull riders in the world will compete in the five-day, $2.2 million PBR Built Ford Tough World Finals in Las Vegas on Oct. 22-26 to determine the overall 2014 PBR World Champion and award him $1 million.
