GREENSBORO, N.C. — Greensboro Mayor Nancy Vaughan became an honorary member of the Carolina Cowboys Tuesday.
During The PBR (Professional Bull Riders) Team Series Combine: The Future of Bull Riding 2023 event at the Davis Rodeo Ranch in Archdale, the Carolina Cowboys named a bull for the city of Greensboro; the bull's name is Mayor Greensboro.
The Carolina’s first professional bull riding team, the Carolina Cowboys, welcomed Mayor Vaughan during pre-event ceremonies for the team’s 2023-sanctioned combine.
"I definitely am looking forward to my first event. There has been no bull riding but maybe a little bull talking yeah but no bull riding. This will be a lot of fun," Mayor Vaughan said.
Carolina Cowboys owner, Richard Childress is looking forward to the number of franchise teams planning to come out.
"Had a great run in Winston last year. Just need a little bit more room and we're going to Greensboro this year. We're really excited it’s going to be eight franchise teams riding. You will have two teams riding against each other and see who comes out as the winner then, you play up for the win, so it going to be an exciting time," Childress said.
Mayor Vaughan is being recognized ahead of the second season of the PBR Team Series. The Carolina Cowboys will hold its second Cowboys Days homestand on September 22-24, 2023 at the Greensboro Coliseum. Tickets are on sale now and available through Ticketmaster.
