SACRAMENTO — Led by defending champion J.B. Mauney of Mooresville, N.C., and Brendon Clark of Hollister, the nationally televised Professional Bull Riders Built Ford Tough Series returns to ARCO Arena Friday, Jan. 14, and Saturday, Jan. 15.

Mauney, who electrified a standing-room-only crowd of more than 10,000 when he won in 2010, is one of the top 40 bull riders in the world who will compete against the fiercest bucking bulls at 8 p.m. on Friday and 7 p.m. on Saturday. Tickets begin at $10 and can be purchased at the Arco Arena box office, by telephone at (800) 745-3000 and online at ticketmaster.com.

Each of the 40 riders will ride on Friday and Saturday. Following Round 1 on Friday, the riders with the 10 highest scores will each compete with one more bull.

Following Round 2 on Saturday, the riders with the 10 highest cumulative scores will advance to the Built Ford Tough Championship Round where they will compete with one more bull. The overall event winner will be the rider with the highest combined score.

The field has five world champions, including the past three winners — Renato Nunes of Buritama, Brazil (2010), Kody Lostroh of Longmont, Colo. (2009), and Guilherme Marchi of Leme, Brazil (2008).

The 2004 world champion and 2006 Sacramento winner Mike Lee of Decatur, Texas, and two-time world champion Chris Shivers (2000 and 2003) of Jonesville, La., are also scheduled to compete.
