2018 was arguably the best year of Dakota Buttar's bull riding career.

Following the conclusion of the 2018 PBR World Finals last weekend in Las Vegas, Nevada, Buttar completed the 2018 campaign as the highest-ranked rider from Canada. He was awarded the Glen Keeley Award for his achievement.

Buttar finishes the season at number 17 on the PBR world rankings, a career-best for the bull rider from Kindersley.

During the 2018 World Finals, Buttar was able to record only 1 qualified ride during the 3rd round, registering 82.75 points. He fell heartbreakingly short of putting in qualified runs during rounds 4 and 5, but came up short of the 8-second mark.

 

While Buttar was only capable of recording 1 of 5 qualified runs in Las Vegas, 2018 has been a year of career bests for the 26-year-old. He accomplished his first 90-point ride on the elite tour in Columbus earlier this year and set a new season best for earnings at $111,853.78.

Buttar has also been a leader for Team Canada during the inaugural PBR Global Cup. He'll be back in the red and white coming up this February in Arlington, Texas when the third leg of the Global Cup kicks off at AT&T Stadium.
