Wesley Silcox Wins South Point Vegas Shootout

A record crowd on hand for the South Point Vegas Challenge Presented by Boot Barn benefiting Cox Charities and some great bull riding to thrill them all! When the CBR comes to town they deliver on entertainment and when a PRCA World Champ, a name Las Vegas knows well, Wesley Silcox, adds a  whopping $40,000 + check to the bill, it doesn’t disappoint.
Considered a “Veteran” in the bull riding world, Silcox is experiencing a resurgence of his career and tonight won again on a bull he rode earlier this spring, Showboat of Hurst Rodeo Co. Silcox won the CINCH Shootout during the Houston Rodeo tallying over $70,000 on the same bull in one year.
“This is a great bull and I was real happy when I drew him tonight in the shoot-out round. I knew him well and he did great for me in Houston so I felt pretty confident I could win this. It feels great to be healthy and riding the way I know I can. I hope to continue down the road and to ride the way I have been,” said Silcox after winning.
Lyndal Hurst also walks away a happy man, with a $20,000 Palace Station Million Dollar Bull Team win. He also takes High Marked Bull honors for Jarrod Longs 91 point ride on Got It.
