September 9, 2021
KENNEWICK—For the first time in league history, PBR’s (Professional Bull Riders) Pendleton Whisky Velocity Tour will buck into Kennewick, Washington, with the Toyota Center slated to welcome fans Sept. 10-11 for the PBR Tri-Cities Classic.
For two nights only, some of the best bull riders in the world will attempt the sport’s rankest bovine athletes in one of the most exciting live sporting events to witness. For more information on the event, visit https://tinyurl.com/rww4kxpw.
The Kennewick tour stop will tentatively mark the 19th Velocity Tour event of the year. So far in 2021, the 2021 PBR Pendleton Whisky Velocity Tour Championship race is off to a fierce start, with the Top 5 riders in the series standings separated by a mere 36 points.
Michael Lane currently holds the No. 1 rank, winning two Velocity Tour events and registering five additional Top-10 efforts. The 31-year-old veteran leads No. 2, Conner Halverson, by 22 points, No. 3 Adriano Salgado by 33.5 points, No. 4 Austin Richardson by 34.5 points, and No. 5 Manoelito de Souza Junior by 36 points.
In addition to the competitors above, it is anticipated that the Kennewick event will include Washington’s own Cody Casper. While Casper’s 2021 season was briefly derailed by injury, he began recapturing his winning ways last weekend in Fresno, California, where he finished 6th.
