PUEBLO, Colo. (March 26, 2008) – The Professional Bull Riders, Inc. (PBR) excitedly announces today that they have joined forces with notorious comedian, Larry the Cable Guy to bring the Git-R-Done Invitational Hosted by Tater Porter, a part of the PBR’s elite Built Ford Tough Series presented by Wrangler, to Orlando, Florida on June 6th and 7th. For two nights, the Amway Center will feature the preeminent bull riding organization in the world, showcasing the top 45 bull riders and the top bovine athletes to ever buck into a dirt-filled arena.
Tickets for the Git-R-Done Invitational are on sale now at the Amway Center box office, at all Ticketmaster outlets, via ticketmaster.com or call 866 448 7849 to charge tickets by phone.
This is not the first time the two powerhouse organizations have teamed up. Larry the Cable Guy is a fixture in PBR, lending his likeness to PBR merchandise, co-owning the 2007 PBR World Champion Bull Chicken on a Chain, personally sponsoring recently retired PBR bull rider Tater Porter (Kenansville, Florida), and now championing a PBR event. He even sports PBR baseball caps during his live performances.
“ I am very excited to be a part of the Built Ford Tough Series event with the longest title in history. It would have been the perfect event title if Tater Porter didn’t keep trying to attach himself to my name and everything I do with the PBR,” said Larry the Cable Guy. “Actually, I’m looking forward to what will unquestionably be the event of the year. Maybe I can get Tater to lose the cane and ride one more time.”
