PRCA members involved with 'Wildfire'

2/14/2007

Several PRCA members have appeared in or helped with recent episodes of the television series Wildfire on the ABC Family Channel.

The hobby of one of the show's characters, Junior, is to ride a mechanical bull, but then he gets the chance at riding the real thing and begins to pursue a career in bull riding. That's where the PRCA got involved.

Bareback rider Rick Bradley and bullfighters Rowdy Barry and Andy Burelle all performed specialty stunts like riding, hang-ups and bullfighting, and the footage was used in the show.

"They worked their butts off," said Allan Jordan, the technical consultant and a PRCA judge. "It was excellent."

PRCA team roper Wayne Folmer also appeared in an episode of Wildfire. PRCA member Mark Sanchez, a former bull rider, provided bucking bulls for the show.

Wildfire is in its third season, and is viewed in 30 million homes.
