PUEBLO, COLO. (Nov. 5, 2013)- On the surface it may seem that a NASCAR star and a turnkey bucking bull ownership program don't have much in common, but The Kevin Harvick Foundation and Back Seat Buckers have found that they are a well-matched partnership.
Brought together by UFC star Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone, Back Seat Buckers donated over $10,000 in 2013 to the NASCAR driver's foundation which supports a variety of programs for children across the country.
“When Cowboy became a stock contractor with Back Seat Buckers, he designated The Kevin Harvick Foundation as the beneficiary of any money his bull won,” explained ABBI President Brad Boyd.
Cerrone's bull, Don't Tell Dana, not only placed at the last regular season event in Springfield, Mo. in September, but also at the Back Seat Buckers World Finals in Las Vegas. Cerrone, who fights next Saturday at UFC 167 in Las Vegas, was thrilled that his bull could give back to a charity he so strongly believes in. Don't Tell Dana's eighth-place finish on October 22 was worth $8,000.
“I love seeing Don’t Tell Dana do well because this is a sport I’m really passionate about,” Cerrone said. “In the end, it means the most to me that we can support The Kevin Harvick Foundation. The work that Kevin and his foundation have done to better the lives of children throughout the United States is just awesome. I’m glad to be a part of it and look forward to seeing Don’t Tell Dana compete again soon.”
“Back Seat Buckers is honored to be an official a partner of The Kevin Harvick Foundation,” stated BSB Manager Alyssa Parga. “Their goal of supporting programs that positively enrich the lives of children throughout the United States is a noble cause and we are happy to have a small part of it.”
Back Seat Buckers is a unique turnkey bull ownership program started by Professional Bull Riders, Inc. (PBR) and American Bucking Bull Inc. (ABBI) that allows anyone to become a stock contractor and offers some of the most elite bucking bull bloodlines in the business. The second annual Back Seat Buckers World Finals event was won by Papa Louie from Ghena's Bucking Bulls who took home over $100,000.
Animals are now on sale for the 2014 Back Seat Buckers season. For more information on how to become a bucking bull owner, visit BackSeatBuckers.com. To learn more about the foundation, go to KevinHarvickFoundation.org.
