Except for Austin Dillon, NASCAR’s Cup drivers headed to North Carolina after the All-Star race to prepare for the upcoming Coca-Cola 600, but Dillon had business to deal with Monday night in Texas – the Professional Bull Riders Association team draft.

Dillon wasted little time in vaulting the Carolina Cowboys into the spotlight and stunning fans with a blockbuster trade that provided the Richard Childress Racing operation with the newly crowned 2022 PBR World Champion Daylon Swearingen from Piffard, N.Y. He also acquired Mason Taylor, of Maypearl, Texas, who’s ranked 13th in the world. Rounding out the Carolina Cowboys top five riders selected in the draft are: Boudreaux Campbell, from Crockett, Texas, ranked 54th; Ramon De Lima, from Brazil, ranked 18th; and Cannon Cravens, from Oklahoma, ranked 46th. The Carolina Cowboys will select two more bull riders in a supplemental draft and then three from free agency to complete the 10-person team. Only five will ride during each event.

“I will tell you what, Austin is taking this more serious than I even expected him to,” Childress told PBR.com after the draft.
