WC Challenger PBR Weekend

Professional Bull Riding comes to the Wise County Fairgrounds in Decatur for the PBR WC Challenger Weekend, Friday and Saturday, June 3th and 4th, 2016. The main event is the JW Hart PBR Challenge on Saturday, June 4th, which is a PBR Touring Pro challenge featuring some of the best professional bull riders in the region.  Since its inception in 2004 by Wise County Challenger Charities (WCCC), the WC Challenger event has hosted some of the highest-ranked bulls in the rodeo ring like Little Yellow Jacket, Mossy Oak Mudslinger, Bushwacker, Asteroid, Shepherd Hills Tested and others along the likes champion rodeo cowboys Justin McBride, JW Hart, Ross Coleman, Guilherme Marchi, Adriano Moraes, and J.B. Mauney. The WC Challenger production features the same pyrotechnics, the same arena, the same bull fighters and announcing teams you’ll find on the PBR’s Ford Built Tough circuit. The WCCC strives to provide the highest quality event for sponsors, fans, riders and for the PBR.

This commitment to excellence has earned the JW Hart PBR Challenge Venue of the Year honors three times since 2004 by the PBR and has consistently been in the top five challenger events. With the success of the inaugural event  in 2004, WCCC members made a decision to support the United Way of Wise County and other local charities and civic organizations. Since that time, over $550,000 has been directly contributed to those organizations.

This year’s WC Challenger Weekend boasts a full roster of family-friendly events for PBR Rodeo fans including the PBR Fan Zone, Eighter from Decatur BBQ Challenge, Washer Tournament and Bono’s After Party:
