Rogers wins PBR Lincoln event, Nebraska native scores top 5
LINCOLN - Professional Bull Riding made a stop in Nebraska this past weekend.
At the third PBR event in Lincoln in the organization's history, it was Wyatt Rogers of Coweta, OK. taking home the crown. He scored a first-round and event high score of 87.5. Additionally, hometown kid, 19-year old rider Sage Vance of Lincoln, NE., placed fifth with a score of 85 on a bull named Ferdinand. Vance earned himself five challenger points as a result, but fell off his championship round bull early.
Previously in the week, NCN spoke with PBR General Manager Robert Simpson who said coming to places like Nebraska means more.
"It's our kind of people.. Cattle ranchers, industry farmers... That agricultural side of the demographic that follows PBR," Simpson said. "If we can bring events close to that demographic, it's more likely to make them lifelong fans of PBR and they're more likely to follow us through the years."
