CEDAR PARK, Texas – For the second straight year, the PBR (Professional Bull Riders) Pendleton Whisky Velocity Tour will buck into Cedar Park, Texas, welcoming fans to the H-E-B Center on Jan. 14-15, 2022 for the PBR Cedar Park Chute Out.
For two nights only, 45 of the best bull riders from around the world will compete in one of the most exciting live sporting events to witness. Going head-to-head against the sport’s rankest bovine athletes, the tour stop will showcase the ultimate showdown of man vs. beast.
In 2021, the Velocity Tour debuted in Cedar Park, with Texas’ own J.T. Moore delivering a flawless 3-for-3 performance to capture his career-first victory on the league’s expansion series.
Moore began the event – the first Pendleton Whisky Velocity Tour event of the 2021 season – with an 86-point score on Tupac in Round 1, before splitting the Round 2 victory compliments of an 88-point ride on Nightmare. The 25-year-old then brought the crowd inside H-E-B Center at Cedar Park to its feet when he clinched the victory via an 84-point ride atop The Beast.
Moore’s win on the Velocity Tour in Cedar Park set an early tone for his 2021 season; he is now ranked inside the Top 10 in the race for the coveted PBR Rookie of the Year honor as he seeks his first qualification to the PBR World Finals.
Prior to the PBR Pendleton Whisky Velocity Tour’s debut in Cedar Park in 2021, the city welcomed the Touring Pro Division annually from 2011-2015. Other past winners include the likes of three-time PBR World Finals event winner Robson Palermo (2015), Kasey Hayes (2014), Markus Mariluch (2013), Reese Cates (2012) and Douglas Duncan (2011).
The bull riding action for the 2022 PBR Cedar Park Chute Out begins with Round 1 at 8:00 p.m. CST on Friday, January 14, followed by Round 2 and the championship round at 7:00 p.m. CST on Saturday, January 15.
Forty-five bull riders will get on one bull in Rounds 1. Round 2 on Saturday evening will feature the top 30 riders from Round 1, the riders’ individual two-round scores will be totaled with the Top 15 advancing to the championship round for one more out and a chance at the event title.
