LOS ANGELES, CA, February 29, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Blue Tax Inc. announced that they have reached an agreement with Professional Bull Rider Ryan Dirteater to be his Official Helmet Sponsor.
Blue Tax Inc. will activate the partnership through a camera-visible rider's helmet during the PBR's Built Ford Tough Series events in Glendale, Ariz.; Indianapolis; Uncasville, Conn.; Boise, Idaho; and Pueblo, Colo.
Blue Tax will provide three custom-painted helmets for Dirteater to wear during his quest to win the PBR World Championship.
"Blue Tax Inc. approached me and said that I was a rider that they wanted to put a sponsored helmet on, and said they would provide a few custom painted ones," said Dirteater, ranked third in the world standings. "I know this is their first time out with the PBR and a rider, so I am just happy that I've been riding well lately. I look forward to riding like I have been, and making Blue Tax proud."
"We didn't really know what to look for when sponsoring a rider, but we got a good tip that Ryan is a kid to watch, and it's paid off big," said Todd Lewis, vice president of Blue Tax Inc. "The kid is an animal. Since he has been wearing our helmet, he has had four Top 10 finishes in the BFTS, and in two of those he placed second. I would like to think that the helmet is the reason, but I know Ryan works hard every day and is doing the things he needs to do become a champion. Plus, he is just fun to watch and a heck of a nice guy. It's no surprise he is a fan favorite."
The BFTS is televised every week on CBS, CBS Sports Network, NBC, NBC Sports Network, and YouTube. BFTS telecasts are produced for the PBR under a multi-year agreement with David Neal Productions, a Los Angeles-based production company led by 34-time Emmy Award winner and Peabody Award winner David Neal, who serves as executive producer.
