LOCAL RIDER WINS PBR EVENT – Mike Lee of Decatur won Saturday night’s J.W. Hart PBR Challenge in front of a sold-out crowd. Fans were treated to a wild ride as he scored 91 points on Bruiser. Neither J.B. Mauney nor J.W. Harris held on for the $25,000 prize in the head-to-head challenge at the end of the night.
