PBR’s return to Albany comes to upstate New York at a great time, as one of its best riders comes from just outside of Buffalo. Young gun Daylon Swearingen, 23, from Piffard, NY became the first rider from New York to be crowned the PBR World Champion in 2022, and the young star is scheduled to ride that weekend!
Swearingen is now 17th in all-time money earned in PBR competition with his career earnings topping more than $2.21 million.
