“This weekend was great,” Brown said. “I feel good, I’m riding great, and I’m staying healthy. I’m just staying focused and feel that I have a good shot at having a successful year.”

Brown went into the Built Ford Tough Championship Round in second place to earn the No. 2 spot in the PBR bull draft for the championship round. He selected All In of Naccarato Bucking Bulls and was scored for 90 points, giving him the event title.
