Muleshoe’s Dalton Kasel makes 90 points look like a ride in the parkGail M. Williams March 28, 2023 0 COMMENTS
Dalton Kasel looked like he was going for a cantor on the back of Raven in the Saturday night round at PBR’s Union Home Mortgage Invitational in New Orleans.
As shown on PBR video, Raven and his rider seemed in perfect sync for the entire 8-second ride.
“Why did we name him Mr. 90 Points last season?” an announcer asked just before the result came over the loudspeaker.
“Ladies and Gentlemen, the numbers are in. How about 90 points?”
The Muleshoe native fared less well on Cool Whip, according to an article by PBR Communications Manager Kacie Albert. But then, Cool Whip was the best beast in the event:
“Cool Whip(Julian/Staci Addison/D&H/Crooked W) bucked supreme, crowned the YETI ‘Built for the Wild’ Bull of the Event. In the championship round, Cool Whip posted an event-best 46-point bull score for bucking off Kasel in 4.36 seconds.”
Kasel finished the event in fourth place. He currently stands in second place in the World Championship Standings behind Jose Vitor Leme of Brazil, the 2020 and 2021 PBR World Champion. Leme holds the record on the bull Woopaa for the highest-scored ride in PBR history with 98.75 points.
