Mauney for the second year in a row in Mauney’s home state and defended his Charlotte Invitational, presented by Cooper Tires, title with an 88.5-point ride on Crazy Horse (Rocking I Rodeo Co.) in the Built Ford Tough Championship Round Saturday night at Time Warner Cable Arena.

Pacheco, one of the stars of the Netflix documentary “Fearless”, finished the weekend a perfect 3-for-3 and tied Ryan Dirteater (Hulbert, Oklahoma) for the most Built Ford Tough Series (BFTS) event wins this season with three. Pacheco earned a total of 510 points toward the world standings and increased his lead over No. 2 Cooper Davis to 590.33 points.

There are now five regular-season events remaining until the season culminates with the PBR Built Ford Tough World Finals at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Mauney finished in second place, earning 325 points toward the world standings. The Mooresville, North Carolina, bull rider went 2-for-3 in Charlotte and was bucked off by Who Dey (K-C/Josey McElroy Bucking Bulls/Spark-lin Acres) in 2.83 seconds in the championship round.

Mauney remains in third place in the world standings and trails Pacheco by 860.33 points.

Brazil’s Eduardo Aparecido (2-for-3) capped his third-place finish (2-for-3) with an 87.75-point ride on Magic Train (Jared Allen’s Pro Bull Team). Aparecido earned a total of 305 world points and moved to fourth in the world standings.

2004 World Champion Mike Lee (Decatur, Texas) continued his second-half run by finishing in fourth place for a total of 140 world points. Lee went 2-for-3 and was bucked off in 1.09 seconds by Kookaburra (Viducic Bucking Bulls) in the championship round. Lee has earned world points in three consecutive events and currently sits in eighth place in the world standings.

2008 World Champion Guilherme Marchi (Itupeva, Brazil) rounded out the Top 5 with his own 2-for-3 performance. Marchi earned a total of 120 world points and leaves Charlotte 15th in the world standings.

Jess Lockwood (Volborg, Montana) winner of Round 2 picked up 100 points to add to his world standings totals with the rookie sitting ninth.

The high-marked bull of the event was Hammer It Again (Sharp/Langston) who put up 45.25 points by bucking off Joao Ricardo Vieira(Itatinga, Brazil) in 7.63 seconds in the championship round.

CBS Sports Network will broadcast Round 2 and the championship round on Sunday at 6 p.m. ET.

The Charlotte Invitational is the 20th stop on the 2016 PBR Built Ford Tough Series schedule. The season will consist of 26 stops, traveling to such cities as Chicago, New York, Anaheim, Calif., and Dallas. It will culminate with the PBR Built Ford Tough World Finals in Las Vegas on Nov. 2-6 when the 2016 PBR World Champion, the bull rider who earns the most world standings points during the season, will receive the coveted World Championship belt buckle and $1 million bonus.
