Former BFI champions Chris Francis and Cade Passig are in the mix, plus last year’s champion heeler, Reagan Ward, is teamed with former world champion header Nick Sartain. In addition, you will see several household names such as Derrick Begay, Jade Corkill, Paden Bray, Coleman Proctor and so many more! Former reserve BFI champ Lane Ivy is heading for a new partner, Evan Arnold, while you can never count out the gold-buckle team of Smith and Corkill or past BFI winners Tryan and Long. Our money would be on fast-time king Tyler Wade with NFR average champ Trey Yates. On the flip side, you can’t count out world champ Chad Masters, who has won everything except a BFI title in his 20-year career, with Joseph Harrison, or the freshly reunited Kaleb Driggers with Junior Nogueira.
They are $20 for General Admission and can be purchased at the door the morning of the roping.
