NEWLY CROWNED WORLD CHAMPION SAGE KIMZEY WILL JOIN TUFF HEDEMAN IN DICKINSON

Take advantage of have a rare opportunity to witness three icons of the rodeo world in the same arena for the first time.  Four time World Champion Bull Rider Tuff Hedeman will be joined by the #1 ranked bull rider in the world, newly crowned CBR World Champion, Sage Steele Kimzey, and former  ABBI World Champion bucking bull and 2015 bucking bull of the year runner-up, Ragin JT, at the 2nd Annual Dielco Crane Championship Bull Riding. 

 

 
Sage Kimzey rode the locally owned bucking bull, Ragin JT, to win $107,000 on July 22 in Cheyenne, Wyoming at the CBR World Finals. The August 23rd Dickinson event will be the kick off of new CBR season and will  bring two hours of heart stopping bull riding action from some of the nation’s top cowboys as they take on the 2,000 pound foes, each hoping to win his share of the $10,000 total purse and add to their valuable points toward qualification for the national televised “Road to Cheyenne” tour.
 
Fans will get a rare opportunity to see locally owned Bucking Bull of the Year finalist, 33-8 Ragin JT, who will be featured at the bull riding but in a rare appearance outside the competitive arena, “JT” will also be available to sign autographs take pictures with fans on Friday, August 22nd at 3 pm at Runnings Farm and Fleet in Dickinson.
 
Ragin JT, owned by Zach Craig of Dickinson, ND is one of the most well-known and productive bucking bulls on the professional circuits. The six year old bull dominated the American Bucking Bull Incorporated (ABBI) 2010 competitive season with earnings in excess of winning a $100,000. His total earnings as a bucking bull exceed $300,000.
 
Championship Bull Riding’s Horizon Series hits the dirt for the second consecutive year for the 2nd Annual Dielco Crane Championship Bull Riding on August 23rd, 2014 at the Biesiot Arena on the campus of Dickinson State University. For bull riding fans it won’t get any better than the CBR’s annual trip to Dickinson and this year organizers of the Dielco Crane Double Down are stepping things up a notch.  .
 
Fans will have the opportunity to see the riders compete as each man will ride one bull and the top scoring ride will have the opportunity to attempt to make the 8 second whistle on Continental Rock, the $5,000 bounty bull presented by Continental Resources and Rockpile Energy.   
 
In the CBR he has bucked his way to the statistic of the most 90 point plus rides on the 2013-14 Road to Cheyenne Tour. JT won the high marked ride of the Los Fresno, Texas CBR in September and the high marked (rank) bull of the George Paul Memorial in April. The big hearted red bull has made a lot of cowboys a lot of money.
