- J.B. Mauney won the Fort Bragg Wounded Soldier Foundation Invitational with 173 points this weekend.
- It is the 26-year-old’s second consecutive victory on the BFTS.
- Markus Mariluch was the only rider to post an 8-second ride in the Built Ford Tough Championship Round, scoring 74 points on Great White.
FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. ― If the world title race was being played out in the school yard, the seesaw would be leaning towards J.B. Mauney following the Fort Bragg Wounded Solider Foundation Invitational.
The North Carolina native rode Stacks of Cash for 86 points in Round 2 Saturday night at the Crown Coliseum, and the 26-year-old’s 173 points would be just enough to win the Built Ford Tough Series Event in Fayetteville.
It is Mauney’s second consecutive victory on the PBR’s toughest circuit.
“When your friends and family are sitting out there watching you, you don’t want to let them down,” Mauney said.
He was bucked off by Superfreak in 2.42 seconds in the Built Ford Tough Championship Round, but it wouldn’t matter as Silvano Alves, Eduardo Aparecido and Valdiron de Oliveira ― the only other riders to ride both their bulls in Rounds 1 and 2 this weekend ― also were bucked off in the championship round.
Alves rode Stinger for 84.5 points in Round 2 to enter the championship round fourth in the event average. However, Larry the Cable Guy’s Git-R-Done, who was painted in pink by Jeff Robinson for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, took out the defending World Champion in 3.48 seconds. He finished the weekend fourth.
Markus Mariluch, right on the bubble for qualifying for the 2013 World Finals, turned down a re-ride option in the championship round after ridingGreat White for 74 points. It was the first time Great White has been ridden on the BFTS. Mariluch would also be the only rider with a qualified ride in the championship round.
Lightmaker’s Rango bucked off Austin Meier in 3.59 seconds and was named the Pabst Blue Ribbon high-marked bull of the night with 47 points.
Douglas Duncan won Round 2 earlier in the evening with an 87.75-point ride on Bad Medicine.
