Tickets on Sale as the Showdown in Salina Returns to the Bicentennial Center

2017 Championship Bull Riding Showdown in Salina tickets are on sale now and fans this year will be treated to another stellar field of bull riders as the reigning and four-time World Champion Sage Steele Kimzey will continue to defend his number one ranking in both the CBR and the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association.

Kimzey is fundamentally flawless, the best rider this sport has seen in 15 years, said CBR Ambassador and Chute Boss, Tuff Hedeman.

Tickets for this years event, which will be held March 25 at the Salina Bicentennial Center Arena, can be purchased online at or by phone (888) 826-7469. Kimzey will be returning to Salina for the second time and is looking to best his record having previously bucked off in the final round on his first trip to Salina in 2016. 

The four-time World Champion, and Pro Rodeo Hall of Famer, Tuff Hedeman will be in town for the second time heading up the CBRs production and handling every detail from the bulls to the intermission entertainers of the event to assure bull riding fans enjoy the two hour adrenaline rush show.

Its a combination of a great rock and roll concert and a heavy weight prize fight and refereed by Tuff Hedeman, said CBR Chief Executive Officer, Benny Cude.

Currently ranked No. 1 in the CBR and PRCA world standings, Kimzey opened the 2017 campaign with a win in Window Rock, Arizona at the second event of the fifteen city professional bull riding tour. Kimzey is a native of Strong City, Oklahoma.

Radley, the 2016 Salina Champion, has been one of the hottest young riders on tour and will ride in Salina to defend his title. Radley finished the 2016 as the CBR Horizon Series Champion. He recently returned to action from an injury that kept him competing in the CBR World Finals and first quarter of the CBR tour for the 2016-17 season. Radley, Montpelier, Louisiana, advanced to the final Shoot Out round in his opening event of the year in Mercedes, Texas on October 15 and tied Chandler Bownds with a 90 point ride.

Individual tickets for the CBRs Showdown in Salina tickets start at just $17 with a variety of options available including a NEW $10 kids ticket for children ages 2-12.

The Showdown in Salina, a premier event on the CBRs Road to Cheyenne tour, features a field of 24 elite bull riders in a three round tournament style event ending in a final four Shoot Out round worth $30,000. The list of riders and former World Champions reads like a list of  Whos Who of cowboy athletes including Sage Kimzey, Cody Teel, Chandler Bownds, Aaron Pass, Cole Echols, Jacob OMara, Cody Rostockyj and Eli Vastbinder   just to name a few.

Riders will again be making appearances around town signing autographs and hosting meet and greets at local establishments.
