Dakota Buttar continued his flawless 2020 season in front of a sold-out Enmax Centre Saturday night.
The bullrider from Kindersley, Sask. came through with a perfect 3-for-3 performance to win the PBR Canada Monster Energy Tour’s South Country Co-op Showdown.
Buttar entered the Lethbridge event the No. 1-ranked rider in Canada. He rose to top spot after winning two events prior, first on the Touring Pro Division in Lloydminster followed by a victory on the Monster Energy Tour in Calgary with a combined 6-for-6 showing.
Buttar recorded his seventh consecutive eight-second effort when he made the eight aboard Big Tymer for 84.5 points in Round 1.
In Round 2, Buttar covered re-ride draw Kubota’s Big Orange Tractor for 87.5 points.
In his last ride, Buttar covered Tykro Pound Sand, this time for an 86-point score.
Buttar also rode in Friday night’s 5/5 Bucking Battle and was the only rider to be flawless in the main event and is now a perfect 10-for-10 in Canadian competition in 2020.
Finishing a season-best second, Brock Radford earned $4,294.63, in addition to 74 Canadian and 20 world points.
