Kaique Pacheco went a combined 0 for 3 this weekend but qualified for the event championship round based on the current PBR world standings. Only nine riders qualified based on score, and BFTS championship rounds require a minimum ten (10) contestants. With Pacheco leading the circuit he entered in the 10th spot but he was unable to take advantage of the opportunity. Kaique remains first overall with 3535 world standings points.
Kaique failed to convert in the 15 / 15 Bucking Battle Saturday night.
