Tickets on Sale for the Championship Bull Riding Tuff Hedeman Vegas Shootout at the South Point Hotel in Las Vegas

Stuff your bull riding fans’ Christmas stockings with tickets and plan now to attend the Championship Bull Riding Tuff Hedeman Vegas Shootout Presented by Boot Barn & Discount Tire at the South Point Hotel, Casino, and Spa on March 11 at 7:30 pm. Bring the family and friends to cheer on the undisputed number one bull rider in the world, 2016 CBR and Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association’s World Champion Sage Kimzey.

 

After a record breaking year with the CBR and the PRCA, Kimzey left the National Finals Rodeo and Las Vegas as the 2016 World Champion Bull Rider earning $311,451.27 during the 2016 pro rodeo season. In July he earned over $100,000 at the CBR World Finals at Cheyenne Frontier Days. The twenty-two year old bull rider from Strong City, Okla., leads the CBR at the midway point in CBR’s competition year and the odds will no doubt be in this World Champion’s favor in Las Vegas.

 

But Kimzey will have his hands full as multiple National Finals Rodeo qualifiers are on the elite Road to Cheyenne tour which features a 24 man field in a three round tournament style event with the winner taking home the lion’s share of the $30,000 prize package.

 

Sanctioned by CBR, the Championship Bull Riding Tuff Hedeman Vegas Shootout event is the thirteenth stop on the Road to Cheyenne twelve-month televised tour where the world’s top bull riders test their skills against dynamic four-legged animal athletes. Tickets are on sale now online starting at $22.94 dollars at Ticketmaster.

 

You and your family will enjoy the CBR Famous Energy Bullfighters, grand pyrotechnics introductions, and great family entertainment that assures bull riding fans a jammed pack two hour adrenaline rush show. 

 

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

 

The Championship Bull Riding Tuff Hedeman Vegas Shootout, a premier event on the CBR’s Road to Cheyenne tour, features a three round tournament style event ending in a final four Shoot Out round worth $30,000.

 

With 30 years of bull riding history on his resume, Tuff Hedeman is one of the most recognizable cowboys in the history of rodeo, but he defers to the young super stars that are currently the CBR and PRCA World Champions as the best bull riding talent he has seen in over 15 years.

 

The former 4 time world titled Hedeman, who in recent years has made a name for himself in the production of great bull riding events, will serve as the “chute boss” and television commentator from the dirt in front of the audience. Come early and enjoy the pre-event activities including great food, cold beer, shopping, and autograph opportunities.

 

Riders and Hedeman’s appearance schedule for Las Vegas will be released at a later date.

 

Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. for ticket holders to enjoy the activities on the concourse including great shopping and meet and greets.
