WINDOW ROCK, Arizona Ė (September 3, 2017) - The leading PRCA Rookie of the year, Boudreaux Campbell, and CBRís top gunner Koby Radley join the growing list of CBR riders making their way to Window Rock tonight to take a stab at winning the largest purse on the young 2018 Road to Cheyenne regular season at the Navajo Nation CBR in Window Rock, Arizona.

"I have been blessed this year and the Navjoa Nation event is one of my favorites and I look forward to taking a shot at that big pot of gold," said Campbell who made the Shoot Out Round in Window Rock at last year's event. 

On Thursday night in Huron no rider heard the whistle in the Huron Shoot Out round which according to CBR regulations rolls the unclaimed prize money to the next event Ė the Championship Bull Riding Window Rock, presented by the Navajo Nation on Sunday night, September 3 at the Dean C. Jackson Memorial Arena where the kick off reception begins at 5 pm and the bull riding action begins at 8 pm.

Tune in to KTNN beginning at 2 pm to  get all the latest news and information from the CBR Road to Cheyenne and hear the latest on the match ups for the night. Wanda Rita will be broadcasting from the park from 2 pm to 6 talking to CBR stars including bullfighters Brandon Loden and Bryce Redo, several bull riders including Cody Jesus and the men who bring the bull power, the CBR stock contractors.

Former CBR World Champion Josh Barentine missed Huron as he joined the Hurricane Harvey rescue squads helping victims in South Texas, but he will join National Finals rodeo qualifiers Cody Rostockyj, Jacob OíMara, Arizona cowboy Tustin Daye, and New Mexicoís Travis Briscoe as they will no doubt  be in top form as they all take a shot at the $52,250 purse.

But the cowboy the Window Rock fans are lining up to see is their own - CBR World Finals Champion Cody Jesus who will launch his bid to unseat six time World Champion Sage Kimzey for the CBR World Championship as he rides for the first time in the CBRís new season in Window Rock. Jesus missed the season opener in Huron last week.

CBR will bring 24 of the best bull riders in the country and pit them against the top bulls on tour in Window Rock. The Sunday night lineup will follow the CBRís three round tournament style format which is popular with fans as it allows them to see their favorite riders challenge as many as three bulls in one night as they progress to the lionís share of the $30,000 purse in the final Shoot Out Round.

Four time World Champion Bull Rider and Pro Rodeo Hall of Famer Tuff Hedeman will be the CBR Chute Boss ensuring each rider and bull has a fair shot at the money.
