KIMZEY IS READY FOR THE NEXT STEP AT KANSAS STAR CHUTE OUT

MULVANE, Kan. – In his first two decades on this earth, Sage Kimzey has made quite a name for himself in the world of bull riding.

He stamped his place in the sport’s history last season, winning two world championships: He secured the Championship Bull Riding title in July, and then completed 2014 with the gold buckle in the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association.

“Those two championships, and being able to do it in my rookie year, just validated my career and what I’ve been able to do,” said Kimzey, 20, who will test his skills at the Kansas Star Chute Out, set for 8 p.m. Saturday, March 28, at the Kansas Star Arena in Mulvane. “It made me feel like all the work I’ve put in my whole life paid off.”

The young cowboy earned more than $400,000 last season between the CBR and the PRCA. He plans to add a little Kansas Star cash in late March.

“With the CBR, you get the most exciting event in rodeo with bull riding,” said Kimzey, of Strong City, Okla. “Rodeo is a true cowboy sport, and this will be an exciting two hours for everybody involved. It’s a fun event to be part of, so I’m looking forward to it.”

He will be one of five world champions in the mix, joining CBR titlists Cole Echols, Josh Barentine and Clayton Foltyn and 2012 PRCA champ Cody Teel. They will be matched with some of the top bulls in the game, including some from Arkansas City, Kan.-based contractor Brad Vogele, the 2010 CBR Stock Contractor of the Year.

“You’ll get to see the top 24 guys in the world and the top 24 bulls in the CBR matched up,” Kimzey said, who pointed to the opportunity to earn $20,000 in one night. “It’s a great show.”

It’s a show that Kimzey plans to share with his family and friends, many of whom will make the trip to the Kansas Star Arena from western Oklahoma.

“It’s always great to ride close to home,” he said. “The Kansas Star is a great facility that puts on a great event. Hopefully all the fans and my family will get to come out and enjoy it.”

Tickets start at $17 and are available at the Kansas Star Arena Box Office or at www.KansasStarArena.com.
