ST. LOUIS – Brazilian young gun, and last season’s runner up in the PBR World Championship race, Kaique Pacheco took a big step toward a championship in 2017 when he emerged the winner of the Bass Pro Chute Out, presented by Cooper Tires, Sunday afternoon at Scottrade Center.

Pacheco was the only rider to go a perfect 4-for-4 in St. Louis and capped the performance with a masterful 88.75-point ride on Lester Gillis in the Built Ford Tough Championship Round. Pacheco became the first man to ride Lester Gillis on the BFTS and was the only rider to record a qualified ride in the championship round Sunday.

The win is Pacheco’s first BFTS event victory since September of last season when he won in Charlotte, North Carolina, and it earned him 640 world points and $44,050. Pacheco now leaves St. Louis the third ranked bull rider in the world and trails current world leader Eduardo Aparecido by 580 points.

Fans can see all the action from Championship Sunday in St. Louis on CBS Sports Network starting at 8 p.m. ET.

Chase Outlaw finished second in St. Louis after a 3-for-4 performance. Outlaw rode Mr. Big Stuff for 85.25 points in Round 3, but was bucked off by Bad Beagle in the championship round in 5.04 seconds, opening the door for Pacheco.

Despite the disappointing end, Outlaw still picked up 460 world points and $20,945 to move up to fifth in the world standings.

Missouri native Mason Lowe closed out 3-for-4 performance in his home state with an third place finish. Lowe reached 8 seconds on Hustle Man for 84.75 points in Round 3, but went on to be bucked off by Cooper Tires Brown Sugar in 3.12 seconds in the championship round.

Lowe moved to sixth in the world standings after earning a total 317.5 world points and $13,365 over the weekend.

BFTS rookie Cody Rodeo Tyler finished a career-high fourth in St. Louis after going 2-for-4 over the weekend. Tyler turned in an 84.75-point trip aboard Ante Up in Round 3 before eventually being bucked off by Crossfire in the championship round in 2.73 seconds. Tyler earned 137.5 points toward the world standings along with an $8,125 paycheck, and leaves St. Louis the 23rd ranked bull rider in the world.

Matt Triplett rounded out the Top 5 after he won Round 3 with an 87.25-point ride on Coopers Comet. Triplett later went on to be bucked off by TLW’s Big Cat in 1.71 seconds in the championship round. For the finish, Triplett gained 110 world points and $7,480 and moved himself to 14th in the world standings.

TLW’s Big Cat was named the YETI “Built For The Wild” Bull of the Event after recording a 45.75-point bull score for his 1.71 buckoff of Triplett in the championship round.

Guilherme Marchi also took another step towards history in St. Louis when he rode Dirt Road for 81 points in Round 3. The ride was his 589th on the BFTS and leaves him 11 away from becoming the first and only man to reach the 600 ride milestone on the PBR’s premier tour.

The world’s best bull riders now move east to Jacksonville, Florida, for the Jacksonville Invitational Mar. 4-5 at the Veterans Memorial Arena.

The action in Jacksonville starts at 6:30 p.m. ET on PBR LIVE and the PBR LIVE app on Mar. 4, with Championship Sunday action starting at 1:30 p.m. ET on PBR LIVE on Mar. 5.

CBS Sports Network will broadcast Championship Sunday from Jacksonville starting at 8 p.m. ET on Mar. 5.
