All eyes were on the season leader Kaique Pacheco (Brazil) who went the distance twice to widen his overall lead in the world standings to 980.00, over Jose Vitor Leme, Dalton Kasel, Cooper Davis, and Andrew Alvidrez to round out the top 5.

With the #2-4 ranking riders out due to injury, Alvidrez had the opportunity to gain some ground at the event, but unfortunately failed to capitalize on the opportunity both nights remaning in 5th place.

The story of the evening was Chase Dougherty who went 3-3 as the only rider to do so over the weekend. Dougherty, hails from Canby, OR punching his ticket to the World Finals while moving up from #44 to #26 in the overall standings.

The PBR Unleash The Beast Tour heads to Louisville, Kentucky for the final regular-season event of 2023, the PBR Cooper Tires Invitational, presented by Kubota, on Saturday, April 29, at 6:45 p.m. ET and Sunday, April 30, at 1:45 p.m. ET at the KFC Yum! Center.
