After beating the Kansas City Outlaws 174.5-84.75 on the opening night of action, the Ariat Texas Rattlers were defeated by their home state rivals Austin Gamblers in front of a sold-out Saturday night crowd, 244.5-86.25.

In the bonus round, the Ariat Texas Rattlers elected to have 2002 PBR World Champion Ednei Caminhas (Indaiatuba, Brazil) take on Vanilla Ice (Lightning Livestock/Blake Sharp). Earning a re-ride, Caminhas then faced Twisted Feather (Blake Sharp/Michael Floyd/Cain Kobert).
