Professional Bull Riders Announce Passport Grand Prize Winners

PUEBLO, Colo. – Fans of the Professional Bull Riders have an opportunity to go where no fan has gone before when they sign up for PBR Passport. In that vein recently three lucky PBR fans were named winners of the PBR Passport Grand Prize giveaways. Lori Gregory was selected as the winner of the PBR Built Ford Tough Series tickets for life.

Gregory (Marshalltown, Iowa) is the recipient of the PBR tickets for life to any BFTS event she would like to attend. Gregory had just one entry into the Grand Prize drawing when she signed up for PBR Passport at the Des Moines, Iowa, event in April 2014. She has been a fan of the PBR for more than 18 years after meeting her husband and together the two have become fans and follow each event. Guilherme Marchi is a favorite rider of Gregory and her family and she enjoys seeing him ride.

“I’m so excited to have won these tickets,” Gregory said. “We’re going to use it as an excuse to go to more events now. We have a 16 year old daughter who loves the rodeo and bull riding and has since she was a baby. She is also a huge Flint fan so this might give her an opportunity to meet him. That makes me excited for her as well.”

Paula Kuhns (Redfield, Iowa) won a round-trip for two to the 2015 PBR Built Ford Tough World Finals in Las Vegas on two entries. The prize includes round trip coach airfare for two, hotel accommodations for seven days/six nights, premier tickets to each performance of the 2015 World Finals, invitations to exclusive PBR functions, a merchandise package, as well as $2,000 in cash. Total approximate retail value of this Grand Prize is $10,000.

Kuhns was particularly lucky as she had never been to a bull riding event prior to the attending the one in Des Moines, Iowa, in April 2014. Kuhns decided to go to the Built Ford Tough Series event where she also signed up for the PBR’s Fan Club Passport and with her one entry she won the trip to the 2015 World Finals.

“I’d never been to any kind of an event like that, bull riding or rodeo,” Kuhns said. “I still live in the town that I was born and raised in about 40 miles one way from Des Moines. I enjoy traveling to Des Moines and this was an opportunity to see something completely different. Now that I’ve been to an event and have seen what it’s about, my husband and I do try to watch online at every chance we get as well as read the newsletter when it comes. I can’t wait for October to get here.”

Signing up for PBR Passport allows fans to go behind the scenes with the PBR’s bull riders, get the latest PBR news, while also having the chance to receive prizes and benefits from PBR partners. Each time an individual becomes a member of the PBR Fan Club or signs up for various contests through the fan club, they are entered into a drawing for any of the three grand prizes.

Stay tuned for the remaining winner, which will be announced on Friday, Nov. 21.
