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 in Tulsa, Okla., and stop the streak that began in 2009 when Bushwacker was 3 years old. The 26-year-old from Mooresville, N.C., came into the final round in second place and made the crowd-pleasing decision to ride Bushwacker in the championship round. Bushwacker was the 2011 world champion bull and is the front-runner for this year’s title. – AP
