Springfield is growing!!  Yee Haw!  The PBR is launching a new Professional Bull riding competition which starts in June!

Springfield will be home to one of the first franchises which will be known as the Missouri THUNDER!

The Missouri THUNDER will have only one home match in its first season but will be included in 10 events through the year.

There will be 5 selected Cowboys to make the team. Bulls are also a big part of the competition. Bulls have as much personality as the cowboys and yes, there will be fan favorites.

The Missouri THUNDER will be competing against the Carolina Chaos, Oklahoma Freedom, Austin Gamblers, Kansas City Outlaws, Texas Rattlers, Arizona Ridge Runners and the  Nashville Stampede.   Look for the team championship to be in Las Vegas November 4-6.
