The Super Duty Challenge is a competition program within the Built Ford Tough Series that gives the top 45 bull riders in the world the opportunity to compete for a one million dollar bonus. To date this season bull riders have competed at the seven pre-determined regular season BFTS events which comprise the series of Super Duty Challenge Qualifying events. The winner of each Super Duty Challenge Qualifying event is eligible for the award incentives made available by the program. A bull rider who wins two or more of the Super Duty Qualifying events is eligible to earn the one million dollar Super Duty Challenge bonus and will claim the prize if he captures the 2005 PBR Built Ford Tough World Finals event title in Las Vegas. The Super Duty Challenge contestant that finishes the highest in the event aggregate during the 2005 PBR Built Ford Tough World Finals will win a brand new Super Duty Truck courtesy of Ford.

The Ford Super Duty Challenge makes it conceivable that two PBR bull riders could earn in excess of one million dollars in prize money, or one bull rider could even walk away with over two million dollars in bonus bucks upon the conclusion of the season!
