THACKERVILLE, Okla. — When Professional Bull Riders organizers bring their top-tier tour to the Fort Worth area these days, they go out of the box.In March, the PBR conducts a lucrative show called the Iron Cowboy at AT&T Stadium and competitors ride in a big arena that’s equipped with the same gigantic instant replay screen that wows Dallas Cowboys fans.In August, the PBR sets up a smaller arena beside the towering WinStar World Casino at Thackerville.The 2013 Thackerville tour stop was conducted last weekend and it’s the only outdoor PBR Built Ford Tough Series show that’s scheduled this season.The Thackerville show is about an hour’s drive north of Fort Worth and fans filled the stands to the brim last weekend. Both the Friday night and Saturday night shows were sellouts and the total attendance was more than 12,000.One cowboy who was a big hit with the fans was J.B. Mauney, a charismatic cowboy from North Carolina who won the title. In fact, Mauney has won two out of the past three tour stops. He also finished No. 1 in Tulsa on Aug. 17.During the past weekend, Mauney won the Thackerville tour stop after turning a score of 91.5 in the final round aboard a bovine named Jack Daniel’s Winter Jack, owned by the Circle T Ranch & Rodeo. He earned $36,800.After clinching the title, Mauney was whisked onto a stage and he addressed the crowd.“You have to have it in your head that there’s not a bull in there that can throw you off,” he said.In a interview after the event, Mauney said one of the main reasons he’s on a roll is because he’s no longer thwarted by injuries.He said he took off a month to rest during the early part of the summer when the PBR’s Built Ford Tough Series was at rest. Since then, he’s limited himself to larger shows such as the Calgary Stampede and the PBR’s Ford Series tour stops.In mid-July, Mauney won the Calgary Stampede bull riding title and he earned more than $100,000 at the famous Alberta rodeo. Since then, he has exuded confidence.“This is the best that I’ve felt in a long time,” he said.Mauney is ranked fourth in the BFTS standings with 6,636.5 points. Silvano Alves, a native of Brazil who lives in Decatur, is ranked No. 1 with 8,534. Ricardo Vieira is ranked No. 2 with 6,979.98 and Marco Eguchi is ranked third with 6,944.3.PRCA updateOn the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association circuit last weekend, Trevor Brazile of Decatur came a step closer to winning a record 11th world all-around title as the result of earning $8,560 in team roping, tie-down roping and steer roping at the Walla Walla (Wash.) Frontier Days Rodeo.Brazile is ranked No. 1 in the 2013 PRCA world all-around standings.High school updateThe North Texas High School Rodeo Association will begin its 2013-14 season this weekend with the Boswell Rodeo at the association’s arena in Fort Worth.For more information, visit nthsra.org or call 817-232-2855.
