Kaique Pacheco went a combined 1 for 5 this weekend taking advantage of only 2 rides in round 3 for a second place finish and 60 round points. 1 of 5 may not sound like much, but that ride halted a career tying streak of eight consecutive buck offs dating back to the final round in Nashville. He qualified for the event championship round but he came up short of the 8 seconds. Kaique earned 65 points and remains first overall in the PBR world standings with 3600 points.
