We want to thank Sparks, Inc. for bringing back the Lightning Livestock Rodeo. Fans will love it.”
Lightning Livestock has invited some of the toughest bull riders from across the United States and brought some of the best bovine athletes to Talladega.
Each of the competing bull riders will get one bull in Rounds 1 and 2. After Round 2, the total of the individual bull riders in two rounds will be calculated, and the rider with the highest score will be the Talladega Ride The Lightning Champion. The Champion will also get a chance to ride Clifford’s Bounty Bull.
