SILVER CITY, N.M. — A special section of bull riding will kick start the Wild Wild West Pro Rodeo at 8 tonight.
The event will include many of the top bull riders in the game matched against some of the top bulls from stock contractor Pete Carr’s Classic Pro Rodeo. The match-ups are set by random draw, and there are some interesting combinations for the four days of rodeo action.
Tim Bingham, a 2014 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo qualifier from Honeyville, Utah, will test his talents on Footloose, another NFR athlete. Other match-ups for tonight are Brant Atwood-Rattler, Guthrie Murray-Rio Bravo, Cody Dollins-Morning After and Jacob Marcell-Missing Parts.
The top bulls also will buck throughout the weekend. That means several NFR animals will be matched with other top bull riders as the rodeo continues through Saturday: Cody Teel-Morning After and Elliot Jacoby-Mind Games.
