Bullrider Mauney ends

Bushwacker’s streak

TULSA (AP) — It took nine tries but J.B. Mauney finally made a full 8-second ride of Bushwacker, the record-setting bull that had 42 consecutive buckoffs at Professional Bull Riders events. Mauney rode the 1,700-pound bull for 95.25 points Saturday night to win the Express Employment Professionals Classic presented by WinStar World Casino to earn $46,605 for the victory and stop the streak that began in 2009 when Bushwacker was 3 years old.
