World Champion BullEdit

Source:[3]

• Bodacious was also the 1994–1995 PRCA Bucking Bull of the Year. Now that Bruiser has won the PRCA Bucking Bull of the Year award for 2017, he and Bodacious are the only bulls to win both the PRCA and PBR titles. Each bull won their two titles in the same year. Bodacious won both of his titles in 1995, while Bruiser won both of his titles in 2017.[4]

•• There was actually a tie between Bruiser, Long John and Pearl Harbor, which was resolved by taking the sum of the bull's best eight outs for the season. That is done according to the PBR rules as the first way to resolve a tiebreaker.[5]

Other awardsEdit

The PBR has some secondary awards, in addition to the World Championship, given out annually, many named after bull riders fatally injured during competition.[12]

The Glen Keeley Award is for the Canadian bull rider who earns the most points throughout the entire season. It is named for Glen Keeley, a Canadian bull rider who died of injuries during the 2000 Ty Murray Invitational in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

The Lane Frost/Brent Thurman Award is for the highest-scoring single ride at the World Finals. It is named for Lane Frost, fatally injured during the Cheyenne Frontier Days rodeo in 1989, and Brent Thurman, fatally injured during the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas in 1994.

The Rookie of the Year award goes to the rookie (first full year of Unleash the Beast Series competition) bull rider who wins the most points of all first-year competitors.

The Stock Contractor of the Year award goes to the stock contractor who has supplied the best bulls to Built Ford Tough Series events. This award is given based on a vote among bull riders.[12]

The PBR also has some recognition awards Professional Bull Riders: Heroes and Legends. Some of these like the Ring of Honor and the Brand of Honor are the equivalent of a Hall of Fame recognition. There is also the Jim Shoulders Lifetime Achievement Award and the Sharon Shoulders award.[13]
