Over $42,000 Up For Grabs Tonight

Championship Bull Riding has returned to the South Point Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas for the South Point Vegas Challenge presented by Boot Barn. This event benefits Cox Charities and we're excited to bring some great matchups to fans supporting this event.

Ardie Maier has a bull called Evil Kinevil and J.W. Harris was 91 on that bull at Lubbock. The bull is outstanding and Ardie is having a good year. He's sitting pretty good in the standings and this bull is one that could help him move up even more or at least get him back to the championship round.

Chandler Bownds has a bull called Lumberjack. Chandler had this bull at this event a year ago and was 89 on him. When they ride this bull they're always a lot of points. He's real showy and has a lot of timing. Chandler's a bit beat up right now but this bull could give him a shot to put up a big score and have a good night.

Corey Bailey is a talented young rider and has drawn a bull from Lyndal Hurst  called John Doe. This is a bull J.W. had a great ride on earlier in the year. Corey hasn't done much lately but this bull could give him a shot to turn things around and get started turning things around. It's a good draw for him.

Jared Long has a bull called Change Up from Exclusive Genetics. Jared has been really consistent this season and this is a bull that should fit him. If he rides him he's got a great shot at coming back in the championship round.

I think the best shot to win the round tonight is Rhys Angland, the kid from Australia. He's on High Dollar Habit tonight. J.W. Harris had this bull at Fort Worth and took him 6 seconds or so. J.W. was going to be 92 or so on him if he made the whistle. Benny Cude and Rocking 7X bring us this great bull and he's unridden this year.

The South Point is a great facility. Nothing beats being able to walk from your hotel room to the event and this place has been a huge supporter of Championship Bull Riding. The restaurants are great, there's a spa, pool, the casino and, of course, great bull riding. Anything you want to do here, you can do - it is Vegas, afterall.
