Are you excited about the 2020 PBR World Finals coming to AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, on Nov. 12-15? We sure are. Tickets are on sale now, and we want to see you there!
In other news, Cooper Davis had a weekend befitting a World Champion when the Unleash The Beast debuted in Lincoln, Nebraska. Plus, J.B. Mauney still knows how to create some fireworks, and Jose Vitor Leme hasn’t taken his foot off the gas. Miss a moment of the action this weekend? Here’s what happened around the PBR.
On the Unleash The Beast…
2016 World Champion Cooper Davis may be out there competing with a new mustache, but he’s still the same old Cooper Davis. He went 3-for-3 to take the event win in Lincoln, rising to No. 8 in the world standings.
Davis began the weekend with the Round 1 victory, and would go on to win the championship round for his fifth round win of the season.
Jose Vitor Leme was unable to win a fourth consecutive premier series event, but the world No. 1 bull rider did extend his lead atop the world standings. Not a bad silver lining.
On the other end of the spectrum, two-time World Champion J.B. Mauney has had to put in some late work to qualify for his 15th World Finals. Let’s just say the guy has a flair for the October drama.
Newcomer Boudreaux Campbell is also in a race to qualify for the World Finals, which would be the first of his career. A career-best UTB showing in Lincoln went a long way towards making that happen.
Meanwhile, on the Pendleton Whisky Velocity Tour…
Wallace Vieira de Oliveira – at a spry 41 years old – won the first event at the Casper Invitational to inch closer to his third career World Finals qualification.
At the second event at the Casper Invitational, Kyler Oliver won the first Velocity Tour event of his career with a 2-for-2 performance.
Down Under in PBR Australia…
PBR Australia No. 1 Lachlan Richardson used a 2-for-2 performance to win the first installment of the PBR Bundaberg Invitational.
Two-time and reigning PBR Australia champion Aaron Kleier and rookie sensation Jackson Gray tied atop the leaderboard at the second installment of the Bundaberg Invitational to split the victory.

The three-time world champ’s got the World Finals on the brain.
