Reunion of WNFR bull riders featured in Feb. 15 Seminole Classic
BRIGHTON, Fla. – The 77th anniversary edition of the Brighton Field Days Festival will conclude on Sunday, Feb. 15 with the Seminole Classic segment of the PRCA’s Xtreme Bulls Tour, offering South Florida fans an all-star lineup of PRCA bull riders.
The headliners scheduled to compete at the Brighton Seminole Reservation in Okeechobee will include a PRCA bull riding “Wrangler National Finals Rodeo Reunion” with 16 Wrangler NFR qualifiers amongst the field of competitors.
Leading the cast is the only two-time PRCA Xtreme Bulls Tour champion, Kanin Asay of Powell, Wyo.
In addition to Asay, the field will have 15 other bull riding qualifiers from the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas – Reid Barker, Comfort, Texas; Chandler Bownds, Lubbock, Texas; Cody Campbell, Summerville, Ore.; Howdy Cloud, Kountze, Texas; Jarrod Craig, Hillsboro, Texas; Elliot Jacoby, Fredericksburg, Texas; Trevor Kastner, Ardmore, Okla.; Josh Koschel, Nunn, Colo; Zeb Lanham, Sweet, Idaho; Ardie Maier, Timber Lake, S.D.; Aaron Pass, Dallas, Texas; Beau Schroeder, China, Texas; Tate Stratton, Kellyville, Okla.; Ty Wallace, Collbran, Colo., and Tyler Willis, Wheatland, Wyo.
All 40 riders will compete on Feb. 15, beginning at 3 p.m., and the top 12 will be brought back for the finals, where the Seminole Classic Xtreme Bulls champion will be crowned based on the highest total score. They will be matched against the rankest PRCA bulls, many of which were selected for this past December’s Wrangler NFR.
The payout for the Feb. 15 Seminole Classic Xtreme Bulls event is more than $25,000. Monies won at PRCA Xtreme Bulls Tour stops count towards the 2015 PRCA World Standings, which determine qualifiers for the Wrangler NFR in Las Vegas.
The Brighton Seminole Reservation is located between S.R. 78 and S.R.70 on Hwy 721, west of Okeechobee.
The 2015 Xtreme Bulls Tour will feature events across the U.S., and will conclude with the Tour Finale in Ellensburg, Wash., over Labor Day weekend. In 2015, the PRCA Xtreme Bulls Tour will have an estimated combined purse of more than $600,000.
