PUEBLO, Colo. – The PBR's top-flight tour, the Built Ford Tough Series is now in its home stretch as the best bull riders in the world race toward Las Vegas' brand new state-of-the-art T-Mobile Arena, where the 2016 PBR World Champion will be crowned.  

As the PBR's best race toward the finish line, you can be there, tickets are avaiable now for the remaining regular-season events.  

“The PBR’s Built Ford Tough Series is the premier bull riding circuit in the country with only 26 regular season events each year,” PBR CEO Sean Gleason said. “Therefore, when the BFTS visits a particular market, it’s a very special occasion.
