For the second time in as many years, PBR’s (Professional Bull Riders) elite Unleash The Beast will buck into Dickies Arena in Fort Worth to hold the fan-attended PBR Fort Worth Invitational Aug. 28-29.
The bull riding action begins with Round 1 at 6:45 p.m. on Saturday, August 28, concluding with Round 2 and the championship round at 12:45 p.m. on Sunday, August 29. All 30 bull riders will get on one bull each in Round 1 and 2. Following Round 2 on Sunday afternoon, the riders’ individual two-round scores will be totaled with the Top 12 advancing to the championship round for one more out and a chance at the event title.
Last season, PBR’s elite Unleash The Beast debuted inside Dickies Arena, with Jose Vitor Leme (Ribas do Rio Pardo, Brazil) going a near perfect 2-for-3 to clinch his league-leading sixth premier series victory of 2020.
Leme rebounded from a close 7.32-second buckoff aboard Dixie Explosion (M Rafter E Bucking Bulls) in Round 1, with a Round 2-winning, 89.75-point ride on Milk Man (TNT Bucking Bulls/Hart Cattle Co.) to advance to the championship round atop the event leaderboard.
As the last man to leave the chutes inside Dickies Arena, Leme clinched the victory when he covered Boogie Bomb (Blank Bucking Bulls/Cooper) for 88.25 points, the top score of the championship round.
