About Nicky Wheeler Memorial Bull Riding
The annual bull riding, formerly known as the Bull Bash Revolution has taken on a new name this year! Now known as the Nicky Wheeler Memorial Bull Riding honoring a lifelong friend and well known stock contractor and bull rider Nicky Wheeler suddenly passed away in April of 2018. Nicky devoted his life to helping the youth especially in FFA and 4H chapters all over the state of Texas. The Wheeler family owns Fresh Country Fund Raising which is a major fundraising company involved with 4H and FFA chapters all over the area!
“We could not think of a better way to honor our lifelong friend than to carry on his love for the youth in agriculture. We are a non-profit organization that raises money to provide the youth of Cherokee County through scholarships,” said Haley Beasley from Jacksonville, Tx.
“We love what we do to help the kids in this community and we take pride in this event,” said Jeff Harris.
The production team of this event is Brian and Haley Beasley from Jacksonville, Texas and the Harris Family from Palestine, Texas.
