Twenty-four of some of the best bull riders in the world will be coming to Lufkin Saturday night as Championship Bull Riding returns for the annual KICKS 105 CBR Bull Bash.  And for the first time in the 24 year history of the Bull Bash, the all-new '8-second format' will be used. 

The new format will see 24 invited riders compete in three rounds of elimination competition.  Every time a cowboy rides, they earn cash.  The last guy with the top score at the end of the night wins the big check.

The line up of bull riders is impressive featuring 6 world champions including Luke Kelley (2010 CBR World Champ), Cody Teel (2012 PRCA World Champ), Bonner Bolton (2007 CBR World Champ), Clayton Foltyn (2011 CBR World Champ), Josh Barentine (2012 CBR World Champ), and 3-time PRCA World Champ J.W. Harris.
