Campbell takes magical bull ride to claim go-round victory

LAS VEGAS — Baby will get more than a new pair of shoes this Christmas.

Bull rider Cody Campbell took a wild ride on Magic in the third round of the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo on Saturday, scoring 90 points to take first place and collect a check for $18,630. Campbell’s wife Amanda is back home in Georgia awaiting the birth of the couple’s first child, with a due date of Christmas Day.

Campbell said it’s difficult not having his wife here, but he’s doing his best to stay focused.

“I’m really trying not to think about it too much,” said Campbell, originally from Summerville. “I would love to have her here with me, but it didn’t work out.”

Campbell is competing in his first NFR, and if he keeps riding like he did Saturday – something he fully expects to do, after getting bucked off the first two nights – his wife and child will surely get another opportunity.

“I keep telling her, ‘This won’t be the last year I’m here,’” Campbell said.

Campbell was one of only four bull riders to make it to the eight-second whistle Saturday.


Contestants in the bareback riding, steer wrestling, team roping, saddle bronc riding, tie-down roping and bull riding along with the Women’s Professional Rodeo Associations sanctioned barrel race are all competing for a total purse of $6.25 million at this year’s Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. On Saturday night, 17,694 enthusiastic rodeo fans poured into the Thomas and Mack Center anxious to watch the greatest show on dirt.
