The “toughest show on dirt” returns to North Texas later this month.
For the ninth consecutive year, the Professional Bull Riders WinStar World Casino and Resort Iron Cowboys will take over AT&T Stadium on Feb. 24 in Arlington. It's one of four PBR Major's and a marquee stop of the 25th PBR: Unleash The Beast season.
The Iron Cowboy will feature the world’s Top 40 riders competing in a ride to advance format. If the rider stays on his bull for the required eight seconds, he continues to compete. If he gets bucked off, he’s done for the day. The men will continue to ride until one prevails and is declared the Iron Cowboy. Points and increased prize money, in the ballpark of $250,000, is on the line.
Three riders from the Lone Star State will compete in front of the home state crowd: Jasper native and 2016 PBR World Champion Cooper Davis, 2012 PRCA World Champion Cody Teel from Kountze and Keyshawn Whitehorse from The Woodlands.
