Shane Proctor rocked the house this weekend at Madison Square Garden in New York when in round one, he dominated the infamous Bones, owned by Teague Bucking Bulls, LLC. He scored 91.25 points and the round win with this phenomenal ride. Proctor also rode his round two bull, Big Coyote, owned by Dakota Rodeo/Chad Berger/Walsh Farms, this time for a score of 86.75. His round three bull, Walk the Line, a Dakota Rodeo/Chad Berger/Clay Struve bull, gave him an additional 86.25 points to take the lead and get first pick for the Championship Round. Proctor chose RFD-TV, another Teague Bucking Bulls, LLC superstar, as his choice for the Championship Round, making a spectacular ride and scoring not only 90.75 points, but the event win as well.
Shane Proctor out-rides all the rest and takes the biggest bite out of The Big Apple.

Everyone wondered who would take the 2009 World Champion Bucking Bull, Code Blue, who was unridden in 17 outs, in the Championship Round. Travis Briscoe had the second choice in the draw and he chose RMED Bugle owned by Jeff Robinson Bucking Bulls, a bull he rode for a 90 point ride in the round. But it was Shane Proctor’s brother-in-law, J.B. Mauney with third choice who took Code Blue. In what was probably the best ‘worst ride’ ever (even topping Justin McBride and Camo for ugly) J.B. made an amazing effort and succeeded in riding this champion bull for the first time ever. Although the score was 76.25, were the judges to hand out scores for effort, determination and sheer guts, it would have scored 20 points higher!
Another 90 point ride was turned in by Mckennon Wimberly in the short-go when he posted that score aboard Smack Down, owned by Dakota Rodeo/ Chad Berger/ Struve/Rosen and took fourth place for the overall event.
Taking top honors in round two was North Carolina cowboy Brian Canter. Canter took White Trash from Teague Bucking Bulls, LLC to a score of 89 points. Chris Shivers, a two-time World Champion, won round three of this event, topping Walton & Wagoner Bucking Bulls’ Iron Broke for 87.5 points.
The man of the hour was definitely Shane Proctor tonight, who left New York with a whopping $46,085.40 for 48 seconds of riding! That breaks down to earning power of $960.11 per second!! Travis Briscoe took second in the event, earning $16,700. In third place was J.B. Mauney with $9,109.40, in fourth was McKennon Wimberly with $7.820.40 and in fifth place was Wiley Petersen who took home $5270.00.
In the Built Ford Tough Series World Standings, it’s J.B. Mauney in the top slot with 1699.50 followed by Guilherme Marchi hot on his heels with 1629.5 points. Travis Briscoe occupies the third spot with 1383 points with Shane Proctor following him in fourth place with 1343.25 points and Valdiron de Oliveira is in fifth with 1314 points. Obviously, it’s early in the season and the numbers can change, but based on the New York event alone, it promises to be a really exciting year!
Until next time……
