The CBR Bull Bash took place in Lufkin TX on the 25th of February and BJ Schumacher is now $10,000.00 richer. It looks like he has gotten the rust knocked off after his injury. Hopefully he can hold off the injury plauge for the rest of the year and show all that he can do. I am perdicting that if he stays injury free for the rest of the year we will be seeing him in the finals for all three top associations.
He held off JB Mauney of North Carolina who has been riding very well lately. Here are the results:
B J SCHUMACHER, Hillsboro,WI 177 $10,000.00
JB MAUNEY,Mooresville,NC 176.5 $5,720.00
CLAYTON FOLTYN,El Campo,TX 172 $3,432.00
SAM SMITH,Sulphur Springs,TX 91 $2,288.00
KOLT MILLER,Converse,TX 90 $1,372.80
JUSTIN RICHARDS,Houston, TX 88.5 $800.80
CURTIS SEAMANS,Ravenden,AR 88.5 $800.80
COOPER KANNGIESSER,Zenda,KS 88 $228.00
RONNIE KITCHENS,Mansfield,TX 88 $228.80
The injury list included Paul Merritt, Daniel McNeill and Travis Sellers. Paul was in the hospital for observation due to abdominal injuries.
"All I have to do is really learn how to dance with a bull. You just have to remember that he's definitely leading and you have to follow. You can't get behind at all. If you keep in time with him, you're all right. I just wish it wasn't such a hard dance to learn."- Fred Boettcher
Caught the broadcast of Lufkin Wednesday. Looked like they had a full house, the bulls were good, and there were lots of good rides. Enjoyed the new broadcast arrangement also. I liked Andy and Terry in the booth, but the new arrangement works for me.
