AMERICAN Zack Brown and New Zealand champion Fraser Babbington will be part of a 40-rider line-up mixing it with some of Australia's meanest bulls at Clive Berghofer Stadium tomorrow night.

The football venue will be temporarily converted to a bull-riding arena before being returned as a top-dressed oval on Sunday.

The Tuff Bullbars Touring Pro Series event is the first of its standing to be held in Toowoomba.

All points and money won at this round-six event count towards winning a spot at the lucrative 2013 PBR World Finals in Las Vegas.

Fifty bulls will be on show tonight.

Each competitor rides one bull before the leading riders contest the final 10-man championship round.

PBR general manager Glen Young said strong interest is being shown in Toowoomba's inaugural PBR show.

"We are pleased to be coming to Toowoomba. The early response has been very pleasing," Young said.

"These riders are amongst the very best you will see.

"Zack Brown from California is in the world's top 40 riders and spends his life travelling the world riding bulls."

The action starts at 7.30pm.
