UBBI National Finals To Be Held In October

The 2011 UBBI National Finals is just around the corner.  This year’s crowning event will be held in Winnie, Texas at the Nutty Jerry’s Entertainment Complex on October 13 – 15.  With only one event remaining on this season’s schedule on September 16th and 17th, there’s still an opportunity for breeders to grab a National Finals spot. 

UBBI National Finals qualifiers will be determined by money won.  The Top 30 bulls ranked Nationally and the top 20 bulls ranked Regionally (4 bulls from each of the 5 Regions) will make up the Top 50 bulls competing in each category at this year’s finals.  Over 1400 different 2, 3 and 4 year old bulls have participated at 32 UBBI sanctioned and co-sanctioned events this year in 15 different states. 

“At our regular season events this year we’ve had over 1400 bulls entered over 2500 different times,” explained Randy Schmutz, General Manager of the UBBI.  “For us here in the UBBI office, that’s absolutely phenomenal.  We’ve been overwhelmed and excited at the same time about the success of the United Bucking Bulls, Inc this year.  The breeders, the producers and the sponsors have all made this a very exciting first season!”

There’s no denying the success of the UBBI during it’s inaugural season, the numbers prove it.  With 2500 entries, the UBBI will pay out just over $900,000 in regular season cash.  Including the UBBI National Finals prize money, the total payout for the 2011 season is expected to be just over $1.1 million!  

The UBBI National Finals will begin on October 13th with the first round of the Derby Finals featuring the Top 50 three year old bulls.  On Friday morning the Top 50 two year olds will compete for the UBBI Futurity World Championship and Friday evening the first round of the Classic Finals will take place showcasing the best 50 four year old bulls.  Saturday night will host the top 25 Derby bulls and top 25 Classic bulls for the Championship Round to determine the World Champion Bulls in both categories. 

The Top 30 CBR Horizon bull riders and the Top 20 Don Gay Tour bull riders will battle it out to see who walks away with all the cash and a new Dodge pickup truck will be awarded to the Finals Champion.

“It’s gonna be an extremely exciting week and we can’t wait,” stated Jerry Nelson, co-owner of the UBBI.  “We gonna have entertainment each night after the bull riding each night.  It’s gonna be a fun weekend!”

Entertainers include Country Music Artist Chris Young (Getting’ You Home; The Man I Want To Be; Voices; Tomorrow), Superstar Rock Group Bad Company (Rock & Roll Fantasy; Ready For Love; Can’t Get Enough; Feel Like Makin’ Love) and Legendary Country Singer, Don Williams (Amanda; Lord I Hope This Day Is Good; Love Is On A Roll)!”

Everyone is invited to join in on the fun.  It’s going to be an exciting weekend as we celebrate a great 2011 UBBI season!
