On a night where there were just three 8-second rides, five-time world champion Sage Kimzey moved closer to a sixth world title by notching a 90-point ride to win Round 7.

“I wasn’t really paying attention, all I had to do was my job,” Kimzey said. “My mantra is ‘No noise,’ and I just climb on and take care of business.”

And take care of business he did. By collecting more than $33,000 Wednesday night, Kimzey now leads second-place Boudreaux Campbell by more than $113,000.

“That’s good – it all helps, and it all spends the same,” Kimzey said. “I am just trying to stay on nine bulls now since I was bucked off one. The rank bulls are out (Thursday night) and that’s all I’m worried about. I feel really good. I feel strong and healthy and all good.”

Campbell and Tyler Bingham were the other two riders to score.
