FORT WORTH, Texas — In tonight’s Fort Worth Super Shootout, Bull Rider Tanner Byrne and Bull Dogger Straws Milan were in the money.
Milan, 2013 NFR Qualifier, earned his spot due to a win last year in Fort Worth. His time of 4.21 second in the short go earned him a check for $2,000. Unfortunately this money does not count towards the 2014 PRCA World Standings, but it does help his winter out south of the 49th.
Tanner Byrne on the other hand earned his spot via his second place finish at this past summer’s Calgary Stampede. PBR World Champion J.B. Mauney was invited however could not compete due to previous obligations. A 90.5 in the long go earned Byrne his spot in the finals where he came down before the eight second whistle. Luckily for him, that spot in the finals still earned him $1,200.
The Fort Worth Super Shootout featured five events and a payout of $100,00. Contestants earned their entry via a win at one of eight North American rodeos including Austin, Denver, Reno, Calgary, San Angelo, Houston, Fort Worth and Cheyenne.
