It's the 21st season for the PBR's Unleash the Beast's return to Oklahoma City.  This weekend Chesapeake Energy Arena will be home to the best of the best, both in Professional Bull Riders and the stock that don't want to be ridden, even for 8 seconds.

Just a few weeks ago, we were lucky enough to the the PRCA Elite right here at the LO Ranch arena, as cowboys from all around tried their hand at the stock from MoBetta and Frontier.  I have to tell you, the Bulls were stout, and won more matches that the Cowboys did!

We were able to spend some time with Kyler Oliver (PBR Bullrider, currently ranked #18 in the world) this week over the phone and he's excited about his return to Oklahoma for this premiere event.  And he's glad that it's indoors.  We found out the hard way that we never know what the weather is going to be like in April!  Jackets weren't quite enough once the sun went down, but that's not something you have to worry about this weekend, as all events are in the climate controlled Arena.

The PBR Express Ranches Invitational will host two shows, Saturday,  April 17, at 6:45 in the evening, and Sunday, April 18 at 1:45pm. Round 1 will see all riders compete, then Round 2, and the Championship Round will be on Sunday.

Tickets are available at ticketmaster.com or PBR.com.  There are also add on experience that you can add to the Bull riding event as well. The Elite Experience is $75 dollars and  includes a question & answer session with a group of the top riders, exclusive merchandise a concession voucher and a commemorative lanyard.

Reminder:  The Chesapeake Energy Arena has gone cashless.  All purchases, including concessions and merchandise transactions, will require a debit or credit card, or form of mobile payment.
