One of the most exciting weekends of the year is among us in Arlington, it's dirt season at AT&T Stadium!
PBR Iron Cowboy Major
February 27@ 5:50 PM
Aptly called “The Toughest Sport on Dirt,” PBR is my favorite weekend all year. In town next week, 40 of the best bull riders in the world take on 40 of the toughest bucking bulls in the world for over $100,000. I said it was my favorite weekend all year, with the best part being the excitement, pyrotechnics and wonderful hype songs chosen. * Cue “All I Do is Win” by DJ Khaled*
*This just in, they added a $25,000 bonus bull to the event, which will be chosen during the competition. Whoever gets the Bad Boy Mowers Bounty Bull and rides a qualifying 8-seconds or more, wins $25,000 as a bonus. If he doesn’t win, the bounty will transfer to the next PBR Major in Vegas. Meaning, the bounty will be $50,000. Nice perk, right?
Tickets are going fast and start at $20.
RFD-TV’s The AMERICAN Rodeo
February 28@ 2:00 PM
One day after PBR, the richest one-day rodeo in history gets its boots dirty at AT&T Stadium. Featuring some of the competitors from PBR (who only get a night’s rest in between events), the American invited the top 10 athletes in seven events in the professional world rodeo standings to compete for $1 million. This year, there will be 61 world champions collectively. The cool thing about this event is the prelims that take place in Fort Worth pit the professionals against talented amateurs for their shot at the pot.
This year, RFD-TV has created The Triple Crown on Feb. 28, whereby if one of the three athletes who have won their event a remarkable two years straight, should win a third time in 2016, they can win all or a portion of the million-dollar bonus. Those athletes are saddle bronc rider Wade Sundell, barrel racer Lisa Lockhart, and team roper Kaleb Driggers.
Tickets are available and they start at $20.
