Monster Energy

What started as a two-year partnership between the Professional Bull Riders or PBR and Monster Energy Drink has been expanded by another year. Jim Haworth, the Chairman and CEO of PBR, has said before that the brand of Monster Energy Drink has long been about people who desire to be the best, which makes the partnership synergistic. The Monster Energy Event is taking place on August 20th and August 24th this year at the Festa do Peão de Barretos.
