JACKSON, Tenn., - Dec 1, 2017 -  Stuff your bull riding fans Christmas stockings with tickets (ticket link)   and plan now to attend the Bud Light Classic at the Oman Arena in Jackson on January 12-13 at 8 pm.  The annual Bud Light Classic is back for the annual two day premier event on the CBR’s Road to Cheyenne tour which features super star bull riders in a two day event featuring four rounds of tournament style event closing in a four man Shoot Out round worth $30,000.

CBR announced today two changes in the annual bucking bull extravaganza that the fans are going to love!

The premier barrel man of rodeo, Cody Sosebee, will be the entertainment at this year’s event. Sosebee, the PRCA’s choice for entertainment at the National Finals Rodeo and Cheyenne Frontier Days provides comic relief and interacts with fans as he combs the crowd challenging ticket holders and giving away merchandise from CBR and their sponsors.

Next on the list the CBR announced a family friendly addition to the Friday night line-up, the January 12 performance will change to all General Admission tickets, first come first serve so you better get your tickets and get there early for the front row action.

Four time World Champion and pro rodeo Hall of Famer Tuff Hedeman presides over the Real Cowboy Sport’s elite 24 riders matched to the industry’s best bucking bulls, both reaching for the $100,000 bonus check awarded at the World Finals at Cheyenne Frontier Days. The Fox Sports televised Road to Cheyenne tour travels to 16 cities and pays out over a million dollars annually in cash and prizes to the riders and the bulls. 

The 2017 CBR World Champion, CBR and PRCA World Champion Sage Kimzey of Strong City, Oklahoma dominated the CBR and broke the CBR history record at the CBR World Finals at Cheyenne Frontier Days in July when he won an unprecedented third CBR Championship. Kimzey, a three time PRCA World Champion currently holds six bull riding World titles. 

“There are two things fans want to see, big rides and high scores and CBR provides both in a star studded entertaining event,” said four time World Champion and Pro Rodeo Hall of Famer, Tuff Hedeman who oversees the production."

Known as The Real Cowboy Sport, CBR is dedicated to preserving and promoting the very best elements of the sport – strength, stamina, and integrity - while providing three rounds of non-stop heart pounding entertainment in an arena designed exclusively for bull riding that gives fans an up close experience during the tournament style bull riding. 

The CBR event includes three human gladiators, the Famous Energy Bullfighters, who will be signing autographs and taking selfies on the concourse before they take the dirt to risk their lives each and every time the chute gate opens.

The annual CBR trip to Jackson is center stage for a showcase of bucking bull power. The CBR Bull Team Challenge, a three bull format competition for stock contractors featuring the best bucking bulls competing for cash and prizes including stock trailers, saddles, and buckles and a check for $45,000 will be awarded to the Enid Champion.  The reigning 2017 World Champion Bull Team is the partnership of Terry Williams, Justin Freeman and Colby Pepper who took home the $100,000 bonus check in July.

 “It’s like a combination of a great rock and roll concert ending in a heavy weight prize fight and all refereed by Tuff Hedeman,” said CBR Chairman of the Board, Benny Cude.

CBR awards over one million dollars annually to bull riders and bull team owners making it one of the richest competitions in bull riding. The Road to Cheyenne CBR tour is featured nationwide with the Road to Cheyenne airing on Fox Sports in prime time.  Follow the Real Cowboy Sport on cbrbull.com; Facebook at Championship Bull Riding; @cbrbull on Twitter; and CBRBull on Instagram.
