FORMAT ― Each of the series' Top 35 riders will ride Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Following Round 3 on Sunday, up to 15 riders will advance to the Built Ford Tough Championship Round. The championship round will have a minimum of 10 and a maximum of 15 riders. Riders who have ridden three bulls will advance to compete on one more bull. In the event that fewer than 10 riders ride two bulls, the riders with the highest score or the longest buck-off time will advance. If more than 15 riders ride three bulls, the 15 riders with the highest cumulative scores will advance. The overall event winner will be the rider with the highest combined score from all four rounds, earning $30,000 for first place.

BONUS BULL - Friday's Round 1 winner will have the opportunity to face bonus bull Lucky You (Ackerman/Cox) for a possible $3,000. On Saturday, the top-ranked rider in the world standings, Shane Proctor, will face bonus bull Porcupine Puncher (CL7 Bucking Bulls/Kent Cox). As the winner of the last BFTS event, the LiftMaster Invitational in Anaheim, Calif., Proctor will also have the opportunity to win $3,000 dollars if he makes the whistle.

MONSTER ENERGY MONEY BULL - Monster Energy is sponsoring a Monster Energy Money Bull at nine Built Ford Tough Series events this season. The bonus for successfully riding this bull starts at $6,000. The bonus will continue to increase by $6,000 each time the rider fails to reach 8 seconds on the bull. The Monster Energy Money Bull bonus will also increase each time a rider fails to reach 8 seconds on the weekly bonus bull. In this instance, the bonus bull payout of $3,000 will be added to the Monster Energy Money Bull bonus.

Seven of the Monster Energy Money Bull matchups will be a randomly-selected bull in the PBR 15/15 Bucking Battles (Jan. 18 at Winston-Salem, N.C.; Feb. 1 at Sacramento, Calif.; Feb. 23 at Kansas City, Mo.; April 6 at Billings, Mont.; April 20 at Des Moines, Iowa; Sept. 20 at Biloxi, Miss.; and Oct. 4 at Fayetteville, N.C.).
