The PBR's best arrive in Tucson, Arizona, for the Cooper Tires Take the Money and Ride event, the final regular-season event. Last weekend, Cooper Davis regained the No. 1 spot in the world standings after his win in San Jose, California, and will look to hold off all challengers before the Built Ford Tough World Finals. J.B. Mauney, last season's winner in Tucson, is currently No. 3 in the world standings and is looking to close the gap.

Davis rose quickly from second half setback ~ Justin Felisko

Cooper Davis couldn't help but think that the broken clavicle he suffered in September meant the end of his World Championship hopes. After successful surgery, and support from his family, Davis returned 17 days later and won his third BFTS event this past weekend in California, regaining the world standings lead. Feeling renewed, he heads into this weekend's event in Tucson, Arizona, looking to defend his lead before Las Vegas and the true test that is the World Finals.

Finals Watch: Bruiser punches his way to the top ~ Justin Felisko

SweetPro's Bruiser impressed for the second week in a row after his 45.25-point performance against Tanner Byrne in San Jose. Though not his best out of the season, that came the week before in Nampa, Idaho, when he earned 46.75 points against Mason Lowe, it moved him to No. 1 in the World Champion Bull qualifier standings. Bruiser is peaking at the right time and will rest up before before heading to Las Vegas for World Finals. There, he'll have two outs to show he can earn the title.

Pacheco & Davis continue dominant sophomore seasons ~ Justin Felisko

Kaique Pacheco and Cooper Davis have not slowed down since their sensational rookie seasons. Pacheco, the 2015 Rookie of the Year, and Davis, the 2015 World Finals event winner both occupy the top two spots in the world standings. Luke Snyder, the 2001 Rookie of the Year, knows how tough it can be to follow up a good rookie season, so he has been especially impressed with the pair.

Triplett is going all in ~ Justin Felisko

Matt Triplett has elected to use his BFTS exemptions as he makes an effort to break into the Top 35 and qualify for the Built Ford Tough World Finals. Triplett, who had originally thought his season was lost after reconstructive shoulder surgery, is currently 53rd in the world standings and 245 points out of the Top 35. Whether he breaks back into the Top 35, or qualifies through the BlueDEF Finals, Triplett is looking to make sure he doesn't miss the party at the brand new T-Mobile Arena.
