PBR Fun Facts:
750 tons of dirt will be loaded into VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena to transform the arena.
6 football fields is the total length of the steel we will setup for the arena and backpens if we laid it end to end.
PBR is the ultimate showdown of man vs. beast, with the bulls often 10x the size of their rider counterparts. On average our bulls weigh 1,800 pounds, while the riders average 150 pounds.
In 2007, Justin McBride won a record 8 Unleash The Beast events in one season en route to his second World Championship. Current World No. 2 Kaique Pacheco has won half that many events so far in 2021, with a league-best 4 to date.
In the sport of bull riding a ride marked in excess of 90 points is considered impressive. Current PBR World No. 1 and reigning PBR World Champion Jose Vitor Leme has logged 10 90-point rides so far in 2021. The season record is held by Cody Hart who logged 16 90-point rides in 1999.
95.5 points is the high-marked ride thus far of 2021. The score was recorded by reigning Rookie of the Year Boudreaux Campbell aboard Woopaa in Kansas City.
$1,000,000 is the bonus awarded to each year’s PBR World Champion.
Two-time PBR World Champion J.B. Mauney is the league’s all-time earner with more than $7.4 million earned in PBR events to date.
27.5 points is world No. 1 Jose Vitor Leme’s lead over No. 2 Kaique Pacheco.
