BRIGHTON, Fla. – The 75th anniversary edition of the Brighton Field Days Festival will conclude on Sunday, Feb. 17 with the Seminole Classic segment of the PRCA’s Xtreme Bulls Tour, offering an “all-star lineup” of PRCA bull riders to fans in south Florida and a national television audience watching on Great American Country (GAC)
The headliners scheduled to compete at the Brighton Seminole Reservation in Okeechobee will include a PRCA bull riding “Gold Buckle Reunion” with five PRCA World Champions in the lineup.
Leading the cast is reigning World Champion Cody Teel, of Kountze, Texas, and he is joined by 2011 World Champion Shane Proctor, of Grand Coulee, Wash; 2008-10 World Champion J.W. Harris, of Mullin, Texas; 2007 World Champion Wesley Silcox of Santaquin, Utah, and 2004 World Champion Dustin Elliott, of North Platte, Neb.
