ST. LOUIS – Shane Proctor, the only PBR (Professional Bull Riders) athlete to go 4-for-4 on the weekend, won the Bass Pro Chute Out presented by Cooper Tires on Sunday at Scottrade Center. It was Proctor’s first Built Ford Tough Series (BFTS) win in more than two years; the last one coming in 2013 at the Anaheim Invitational.

Proctor posted an 88.75-point ride on Shoot Out The Lights (K-C/Josie McElroy Bucking Bulls) to win Round 3 and added an 89-point ride aboard Cooper Tires Brown Sugar (Dakota Rodeo/Chad Berger/Clay Struve/Julie Rosen) to capture the Built Ford Tough Championship Round in his victory. With a third-place showing in Round 1, a seventh-place finish in Round 2, and a first-place finish in the event aggregate, Proctor earned a total of 755 points toward the PBR world standings. He moved from 23rd to No. 7 in the rankings. Here is Proctor’s winning championship round ride.

“I felt good on my Championship Round bull,” Proctor said. “I could hear (Dickies Bullfighter) Frank Newsom yelling at me to ‘just keep spurring, just keep spurring’ so I knew I had him. I get on a lot of bulls throughout the year so to get a win early in the season and avoid the cut, takes a load off.”

Rookies Wallace de Oliveira and Nevada Newman each picked up 340 points to tie for second place. Newman finished second to Proctor in the championship round after an 87.75-point ride on Mississippi Hippy (K-C Bucking Bulls/Spark-Lin Acres/Blythe Cattle), adding to his first place finish in Round 1. Oliveira finished third in Round 3 on an 86.75 point ride aboard Doc Mosely (Jeff Robinson Bucking Bulls). He also finished 13th in Round 1 and third in Round 2.

Newman’s ride on Mississippi Hippy marked the bull’s first out since the 2015 PBR Built Ford Tough World Finals in October. The PBR’s largest bull, weighing in at 2,300 pounds, had been getting treatment for an infection in his horn, and tumors on his eyelids. To watch Newman and Mississippi Hippy square off, click here.

“This weekend really jump started my career,” Newman said. “I had a gut feeling about picking Hippy in the championship round and I always try to go with my gut. I was a little intimidated by him because he is so huge, but Frank Newsom told me to just keep my hand in the rope and my feet down and I’d have him.”

While 2015 PBR World Champion J.B. Mauney failed to cover his championship round bull, his first-place finish in Round 2, his second-place finish in Round 3, and fourth-place finish in the aggregate gave him 265 points toward the PBR world standings and a fourth place finish in the event. It also secured the No. 2 ranking in the world standings, just 7.5 points behind leader Paulo Lima.

Stetson Lawrence was the leader heading into Round 3, but was unable to cover either of his bulls in the final rounds. He finished in fifth place with 126.7 points.

In his first BFTS out since his retirement a year ago, Asteroid (Dakota Rodeo-Berger/Struve) won the Salem NationaLease High-Marked Bull award in St. Louis with his 45.75-point score. The 2012 PBR World Champion Bull Asteroid launched Joao Ricardo Vieira in quick fashion in 2.9 seconds during the 15/15 Bucking Battle on Saturday. To watch Asteroid’s performance click here.

“I was real nervous for him this weekend,” owner Chad Berger said. “I was just ready to get it over with and see how he did. Now we know and the nerves have gone. He looked real good.”

St. Louis was the sixth of 26 stops on the 2016 Built Ford Tough Series. The tour will continue in the Midwest next weekend, stopping in Kansas City, Missouri, on Feb. 20-21, for the Kansas City Clash presented by Foley Equipment at the Sprint Center.

Following Round 1 on Saturday, Feb. 20, the sport’s top bovine athletes and best bull riders will compete in the fourth 15/15 Bucking Battle of the season. The series’ Top 15 PBR stars will be randomly matched against the 15 highest-ranked bulls in this round, competing for bonus points that count towards the world standings and a total purse of $21,000.

CBS Television Network will broadcast the 15/15 Bucking Battle on Sunday, Feb. 21 at 12 p.m. ET.

Round 2 and the Built Ford Tough Championship Round of the Kansas City Clash will air on CBS Sports Network on Sunday, Feb. 21 at 8 p.m. ET. Fans can also watch all of the action in real time on PBR LIVE online at www.pbr.com/live, or via the PBR LIVE app, which is available for download now on Google Play and iTunes.
