Professional Bull Riders’ Velocity Tour debuts in Pensacola March 20-21 with Fan-Attended Tour Stop

Posted

PENSACOLA. Fla. - For the first time in league history, PBR’s (Professional Bull Riders) Pendleton Whisky Velocity Tour (PWVT) will buck into Pensacola, Florida, welcoming fans into the Pensacola Bay Center March 20-21 for the PBR Pensacola Invitational.  

Brining the edge-of-the-seat action one can only experience at a PBR event, the tour stop will feature 45 of the world’s best bull riders squaring off in epic 8-second confrontations all night long against some of the rankest bulls on the planet, often 10-times their size.

Initially scheduled for 2020, the event was postponed twice due to impacts of Hurricane Sally.

Having already held four events thus far in 2021, the race for the PBR Pendleton Whisky Velocity Tour Championship is off to a feverish start. Among the athletes having break-through seasons, and anticipated to compete in Pensacola are:

  • Cody Casper (Pacific, Washington): After reaching the World Finals for the first time in his career in 2020, Cody Casper is eager to continue his momentum in 2021. Presently ranked No. 43 in the world, the Washington native’s season to date has been headlined by a third-place finish in Greenville, South Carolina in late January.
  • Cody Nance (Paris, Tennessee): For 11-time PBR World Finals qualifier Nance, who has been an annual World Championship contender for the past decade, he will travel to the Florida event after a shoulder injury sidelined him for the majority of 2020. Presently ranked No. 35 in the world, Nance is within 11 points of the Top 30 and returning to the sport’s top tour. In PWVT action, Nance was runner-up at the most recent event in South Carolina, and is ranked No. 8 in the tour standings.

 Additionally, the event is anticipated to feature a Florida native, with Fruitland Park’s Clayton Sellars set to compete. Marking his first Pendleton Whisky Velocity Tour event of 2021, Sellars has ridden to two Top-10 finishes on the Touring Pro Division and is currently ranked No. 61 in the world.
