$10,000 Mahindra Tractors Texas Swing Breakdown

Fort Worth, TX (September 29, 2010)- The 2010 CINCH CBR Tour presented by Mahindra Tractors will be in Lubbock, TX, this Saturday night.  The event will be the last before this year's Tour Finale, and it will also be the last in this year's $10,000 Mahindra Tractors Texas Swing.  The CBR's best have earned points all season at the televised events in Texas, and the bonus check will be handed out Saturday night.  More importantly, the bonus will count towards this year's season standings and World Title.  In addition, this event will be broadcast on GAC November 9th, 2010 at 9:00PM CST.

Below are the riders who are still in contention for the $10,000 check from Mahindra Tractors.  Some have ridden more bulls than others, but they are all still mathematically alive.  A few riders currently in the top 10 in the Texas Swing aren't entered in the Lubbock event, so they won't be included below.  The number beside each rider's name represents their current standing in the race for the $10,000 bonus.

1.  Clint Craig
Clint Craig comes into Lubbock as the leader in the Mahindra Tractors Texas Swing with 448 points.  He accumulated his points on the second night in El Paso and Del Rio.  He went 2-for-2 in El Paso to win the event, and he was a perfect 3-for-3 at Del Rio on his way to picking up the event win there.  Craig has struggled since the CBR returned from summer break, but his lead in the Texas Swing is 5.5 points.

2.  Jake Littlefield
Jake Littlefield's Mahindra Tractors Texas Swing total is 442.5 points, 5.5 points behind Clint Craig.  The Mississippi bull rider did most of his damage the first two events of the season in El Paso.  On the first night, he rode both his bulls and finished with 173 points.  On night two, he rode both his bulls once again and picked up 178.5 points.  He added 91 more points in Del Rio and sits in good shape heading into Lubbock.  Littlefield is coming off a big win in Fort Stockton September 11th.

3.  Luke Kelly
Luke Kelly's total is 440.5 points which is 7.5 points behind the leader.  He is the only rider to accumulate points at all Mahindra Tractors Texas Swing stops this year.  He collected 86.5 points on the first night in El Paso, and he followed that up with 90 points on night two.  He rode both his bulls in Fort Worth and added 176 more points to his total.  Kelly rode another bull in Del Rio for 88 points.  He is the top-ranked rider in the CBR season standings and has been very hot in recent months.

4.  Cody White
Cody White is the last of the riders who have ridden five bulls in this year's Mahindra Tractors Texas Swing.  His point total coming into Lubbock is 436 which is 12 points out of first.  He started the season off with 87 points on night one in El Paso.  He rode both bulls on night two and added 176 points to this total.  White also rode two more bulls in Fort Worth for a total of 173 points.  The Texas cowboy is coming off a fourth-place finish in Woodward.

6.  Sam Wilson
Sam Wilson is currently sixth in the Mahindra Tractors Texas Swing standings with 267.5 points.  He was 90 points on the second night in El Paso, but he did most of his damage in Fort Worth.  He rode both his bulls and added 177.5 points to his total.  Wilson comes into Lubbock two bulls behind the leaders, so he will have to ride both his bulls to have any chance of getting the $10,000 bonus.

8.  Steve Woolsey
Steve Woolsey is eighth in the Mahindra Tractors Texas Swing with 267 points.  His first points came on the second night in El Paso where he was scored 88.5 points.  Like Wilson, he did most of his damage in Fort Worth.  He finished second and added 178.5 points to his total.  Woolsey is in a similar position as Wilson, and he will need to ride both his bulls in Lubbock and get some help from the leaders.

9.  Wrangler Dunda
Wrangler Dunda is ninth in the Mahindra Tractors Texas Swing, and he is also a couple bulls behind the leaders.  His first points came on the second night in El Paso where he rode both bulls and ended up with 178.  He added an 86.5-point ride in Del Rio to give him a total of 264.5 points in the Texas Swing.  Dunda will have to be perfect this weekend in Lubbock to have any chance at the bonus.

13.  Cooper Kanngiesser
Cooper Kanngiesser is 13th in this year's Mahindra Tractors Texas Swing with 259.5 points.  He was 85.5 points on the second night in El Paso, and he added another 174 points in Fort Worth.  He is the definite long shot to win this year's Texas Swing, but he is still mathematically alive.  Kanngiesser will have to ride both his bulls for an average ride score of 94.25 points and have the top four buck off their bulls.
