Showdown Set for this Weekend in Salina

Some of Championship Bull Riding’s most accomplished bull riders will head to Kansas this weekend to compete for $30,000 at the Tony’s Pizza Events Center for the Showdown in Salina presented by Marshall Motors and Business Link.

This will be the third year CBR has traveled to Salina and each year has grown in attendance, rain or snow, and the weather forecast looks good for our participants.

“We love the sport and last year we showed up and strapped some bulls in a snow storm. Not sure who had it worse, us cowboys or the bulls” laughed Braden Richardson.

Three-time CBR World Champion bull rider, Sage Kimzey from Strong City, Oklahoma, intends to make his appearance at the Tony’s Pizza Events Center as well as the 2017 CBR Horizon Series Champion, John Pitts, will also be competing on Saturday. 

Other top bull riders competing include ten-time PBR World Championship qualifier, Kody Lohstroh and Braden Richardson, who sits number one in the CBR Horizon series, returning after his win in Lufkin, TX last month.

The man everyone is chasing is the current Road to Cheyenne Tour standings leader, Cody Jesus. The Window Rock, AZ cowboy has a hefty lead in the standings and Trey Holston of Fort Scott, KS trails closely behind in second place.

Marshall Motors will be hosting a live radio event Saturday March 24th from noon- 2pm with refreshments and your chance for meet and greets with CBR riders. Don’t miss the fun this weekend with your chance to win tickets, merchandise and test drive a new car!
