The 36th Annual George Paul Memorial has come to an end and Trey Benton will be added to the list of other legendary bull riders who have won the prestigious title. Names like as Tuff Hedeman, Lane Frost and Jim Sharp have all entered the history books all in honor of the man who many will say was the best bull rider of all time, George Paul.
Benton certainly is deserving of the honor. Over the last two nights he rode three bulls, each of them for 90 points!Â (Shine Time- The Dalton Gang, Lumber Jack- Johnson Rawley, Boys Town-Scott Burruss)
Mobbed by fans after the event Benton stated, â€śThis is what every cowboy dreams of winning.Â Itâ€™s an honor and Iâ€™m just overwhelmed by all the fans and the love they have for this event. Itâ€™s the greatest feeling.â€ť
Benton was given the opportunity by Ram Country Dodge to make a $5,000 donation of his choice and he choose to give the check to fellow bull rider Jarred Long who broke his leg at the event in Las Vegas two weeks ago. Long will be out of competition and is unable to work because of the severity of the injury. The gift of this donation could not have come at a better time or a more appreciative person.
â€śI just donâ€™t know what to say,â€ť a shocked Long said via phone when he was told about the donation. â€śI mean I wish I could have been there in person, but this is just so amazing.Â I thank Trey and Ram County and I really am speechless.â€ť
â€śIâ€™m just happy I could do it for him,â€ť stated a modest Benton. â€śWe all do this for a living and when we canâ€™t make a living, than we need to step up and help each other out.â€ť
Palace Station Million Dollar Team winner is Johnson/Rawson.
The CBR â€śRoad To Cheyenne Tourâ€ť is now on hiatus until the World Championships at Cheyenne Frontier Days July 22nd and 23rd.Â Watch the premier of the second season of CBR on FSN May 26th at 6PM.
A record crowd on hand for the South Point Vegas Challenge Presented by Boot Barn benefiting Cox Charities and some great bull riding to thrill them all! When the CBR comes to town they deliver on entertainment and when a PRCA World Champ, a name Las Vegas knows well, Wesley Silcox, adds aÂ whopping $40,000 + check to the bill, it doesnâ€™t disappoint.
Considered a â€śVeteranâ€ť in the bull riding world, Silcox is experiencing a resurgence of his career and tonight won again on a bull he rode earlier this spring, Showboat of Hurst Rodeo Co. Silcox won the CINCH Shootout during the Houston Rodeo tallying over $70,000 on the same bull in one year.
â€śThis is a great bull and I was real happy when I drew him tonight in the shoot-out round. I knew him well and he did great for me in Houston so I felt pretty confident I could win this. It feels great to be healthy and riding the way I know I can. I hope to continue down the road and to ride the way I have been,â€ť said Silcox after winning.
Lyndal Hurst also walks away a happy man, with a $20,000 Palace Station Million Dollar Bull Team win. He also takes High Marked Bull honors for Jarrod Longs 91 point ride on Got It.
