SACRAMENTO, Calif. –19-year-old phenom Jess Lockwood (Volborg, Montana) was on a mission to continue his spectacular start to the 2017 season as he rode his way to his second PBR (Professional Bull Riders) Built Ford Tough Series (BFTS) event win of the season at the Frontier Communications Sacramento Clash Sunday afternoon at the Golden 1 Center. The three-day event was the highest attended in the PBR’s 14-year history of traveling to Sacramento, including a sell-out on Saturday night.

Lockwood fended off two-time World Champion J.B. Mauney (Statesville, North Carolina) by .25 points in the Built Ford Tough Championship Round to take the edge in the event average, propelling him to the event victory.

Lockwood went a perfect 4-for-4 for the second time this season and sealed the victory with a 90-point ride on BC Circular Insanity (Dakota Rodeo/Chad Berger/Clay Struve/H&C Bucking Bulls) to win the championship round. The ride was his first 90-point ride of the season as well as the first since he covered Legacy (2K Bucking Bulls) for 90 points in Tulsa, Oklahoma, last season.

With the win, Lockwood added 702.5 world points to his world standings lead. Lockwood currently leads No. 2 Marco Eguchi (Poa Sao Paulo, Brazil) by 802.5 points. The second-year rider also earned $39,090 for the win.

Chase Outlaw (Hamburg, Arkansas) finished second in Sacramento after a 3-for-4 performance Sunday. Outlaw won Round 3 after an 87-point ride on Thunderstruck (Dakota Rodeo/Chad Berger/J.R. Scott) and ended his weekend with an 88.75-point ride on Modified Clyde (Dakota Rodeo/Chad Berger/Clay Struve/Ken Barnhard) in the championship round. For his efforts, Outlaw earned 365 points toward the world standings and $19,580.

Mauney finished third after a 4-for-4 performance in California’s capital, launching him from 32nd in the world standings to 13th. Mauney covered both of his bulls Sunday, riding Damn Yankee (JD Nix Rodeo Co.) for 80 points in Round 3 and covering Brutus (D&H Cattle Co./Buck Cattle Co./ Bob & Jeri Adams) for 89 points to come in second in the championship round. Mauney earned 315 points toward the world standings and $12,600.

Eguchi went 3-for-4 Sunday to finish in fourth place. Eguchi rode Beaver Creek Beau (Chad Berger/Clay Struve/PBR Rock Bar) for 88.75 in the championship round. For the finish, Eguchi picked up 190 points toward the world standings and a $8,500 paycheck.

Eduardo Aparecido (Gouvelandia, Brazil) rounded out the Top 5 Sunday after going 3-for-4, including an 85.25-point ride on Red Sails in the Sunset(Dakota Rodeo/Struve/Berger/Heald) in the championship round. Aparecido earned 140 points toward the world standings and $6,650.

 

Spotted Demon (Julio Moreno Bucking Bulls) was named the YETI “Built For the Wild” Bull of the Event after tossing Lockwood in 4.66 seconds in Saturday’s 15/15 Bucking Battle. Spotted Demon earned a 45.5-point bull score for the out.

The Top 35 bull riders in the world will now head down the freeway to Anaheim, California, for the 20th anniversary edition of the Frontier Communications Showdown at the Honda Center Feb. 3-4.

Volborg's Jess Lockwood wins third career PBR event in Sacramento

  • Gazette News Services

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Jess Lockwood is on fire.

The reigning Professional Bull Riders Rookie of the Year turned in a 90-point ride aboard BC Circular Insanity to win the championship round of the Built Ford Tough Series Frontier Communications Sacramento Clash Sunday.

The 19-year-old Lockwood, from Volborg, went a perfect 4-for-4 over the three days to win his third career BFTS event. Lockwood edged two-time world champion J.B. Mauney by .25 points in the championship round to win the event average. It is the second time this season he has covered all four bulls.

It was the first time this year Lockwood scored a 90-point ride. It was Lockwood's first time scoring 90 since he rode Legacy to the score in Tulsa, Okla., last year. In bull riding, a 100 is a perfect score with 50 points for the bull and 50 points for the rider. The PBR media guide notes rides of 90 points or higher are considered outstanding. 

Lockwood leads the world standings with 1,677.5 points and has earned $160,573.33 this year. He earned 702.5 points and claimed $39,090 for the win. Lockwood's lead over Marco Eguchi is 802.5 points. 

The Montana cowboy has been on a tear this year. He opened the season winning one of the PBR's major events — the Monster Energy Buck Off at the Garden at Madison Square Garden in New York. He was also 4-for-4 that weekend and earned $117,183 to leave New York as the top-ranked bull rider in the world for the first time in his career. He then finished fifth at the Chicago Invitational at Allstate Arena, going 3-for-4 and earning 115 points.

The first BFTS win for Lockwood was in Billings last year, where he pocketed $40,000. The BFTS will be in the Magic City for the Cooper Tires Presents: Stanley Performance In Action Invitational April 7-9 at Rimrock Auto Arena at MetraPark.

Plenty of fans, including a sell-out Saturday, witnessed the Montana bull rider work his magic as the three-day event at the Golden 1 Center became the best attended in the 14-year history of the Sacramento stop. 

Chase Outlaw of Hamburg, Ark., finished second after a 3-for-4 performance, winning the third round with a 87-point ride. Outlaw earned 365 world points and $19,580. 

Billings native Mike Lee took rode to a 10th-place with an 83-point second round and an 86.25-point third round. Lee earned 52.5 world points and is now seventh in the world rankings. 

SigShane Proctor, who was a bull rider for Northwest College and later Montana State, took 13th place with an 86.5-point second-round ride and an 85.75-point third-round ride. Proctor notched 42.5 world points. 

Columbia Falls' Matt Triplett tied for 19th place with an 84.75-point third-round ride. He is 12th in the world standings. 

Melstone's Nevada Newman failed to earn any points and is in 18th place in the world standings.  

The top 35 bull riders in the world will now head to Anaheim, Calif., for the 20th anniversary edition of the Frontier Communications Showdown at the Honda Center of Feb. 3-4.
