Featuring more than 1,650 contestants from 43 states, five Canadian provinces, Australia and Mexico, the NHSFR is the world's largest rodeo. In addition to competing for more than $150,000 in prizes, NHSFR contestants will also be competing for more than $375,000 in college scholarships and the chance to be named an NHSFR World Champion. To earn this title, contestants must finish in the top 20 based on their combined times/scores in the first two rounds to advance to Saturday evening's final round. World champions will then be determined based on their three-round combined times/scores.

Bubba is currently rodeoing professionally and will attend Montana State University in the fall, continuing his rodeo career for the Bobcats while majoring in Agricultural Business.
