Jones Picks Up Second TPD Win of 2015 Season

PUEBLO, Colo. – On Nov. 7 in Enid, Oklahoma, Ben Jones (Golburn, Australia) came in fresh off his event win in Clovis, New Mexico on Oct. 31-Nov. 1 to take his second TPD victory of the 2015 season.

Jones was one of four riders to put up scores in both rounds as he finished with 170.5 points and $4,804.88.

Hawk Tucker (Pampa, Texas) took second place with a 79-point ride in Round 1 and an 86-point ride in the championship round for 165 points and $3,404.36. In third place was Cody Tesch (Los Lunas, New Mexico) with 161.5 points and $2,027.06. Rounding out the Top 5 was Eli Vastbinder (Statesville, North Carolina) who took fourth and fifth place with 157 and 87.5 points, respectively. Per TPD rules, a bull rider may enter an event as many times as he chooses. Some riders have been known to enter two, or even three times.

Skeeter Kingsolver (McClouth, Kansas) was the only rider to go 2-for-2 on Nov. 8 to win the Professional Bull Riders BlueDEF Velocity event in San Diego, California at the Valley View Casino Center.

Kingsolver enter the championship round in 11th place with 78 points, the second lowest in Round 1 but it was enough to put him in the championship round where he was the only rider to conquer Woody (Julio Moreno) for 85.5 points and came away with the victory with 163.5 points and $7,900.

This was Kingsolver’s first event win since the Touring Pro Division event in Saginaw, Michigan in March 2014.
