About Jerome Davis:  Jerome was born on August 10, 1972 in Colorado Springs, CO where his father was stationed in the military. Six months after his birth, he and his family moved back to Archdale, NC to the Davis Family Ranch where he grew up and still lives today.

Jerome’s shining moment was in 1995 when he became the 1995 PRCA World Bull Riding Champion. He continued to rip through PRCA and PBR. He was ranked in the top five each year in the PRCA since 1993 and was a National Finals qualifier since ’94 in the PBR (more Career Stats).

Tragedy struck on March 14, 1998, when Jerome was thrown from a bull breaking his neck. The injury left him with paralysis from the chest down. Although Jerome is paralyzed, nothing can keep him down. He is a true inspiration of how you should live your life and keep moving forward with a positive outlook. He inspired his wife Tiffany, as they were married October 17, 1998. He also inspired the PBR- as he was awarded the “Ring of Honor” during the 1998 PBR Finals.  For more info visit http://www.jeromedavis.com/meet_jerome.asp

Jerome Davis continues to have a lasting impact on riders throughout the PBR. FULL STORY: http://at.PBR.com/CTrG.

It was a honor for me to meet Jerome Davis while playing a V.I.P. Sponsor in the upcoming movie “The Longest Ride”(Nicholas Sparks Movie The Longest Ride The film is based on the novel The Longest Ride by Nicholas Sparks) to be released April 2015 (USA). The Davises are members of American Bucking Bull, Inc., and as such participate nationally in stock breeding. Some of their bulls will be featured in an upcoming Nicholas Sparks movie that was filmed in Winston-Salem and Wilmington.

The signature event at the Jerome Davis Ranch is the Jerome Davis Professional Bull Riders Invitational which will take place at his arena August 29 and 30. (Davis is one of the founders of Professional Bull Riders.) On the same two dates the ABBI Futurity & Classic Challenge will be going on.

Both of these events require tickets that will be available by calling (336) 861-7673 after August 1.

In September, the Ranch will host another annual event, the He Paid Your Fees Christian Junior Rodeo. Any young person, age 19 and younger can enter and participate at no charge. Admission for onlookers is two cans of food. This has been one of the area’s largest food drives over the last several years. As many as 500 kids will enter. Davis hopes these kids become the stars and fans of the future. ~Scott Ray

STOKES COUNTY, N.C. — Saturday night’s wreck involving Tony Stewart hits home for many drivers in the Triad.

NASCAR driver Tony Stewart hit and killed another driver who was walking on a track during a dirt-track race in upstate New York.

Kevin Ward Jr., 20, died from injuries suffered in the incident, which occurred Saturday night at the Empire Super Sprints series event at the Canandaigua Motorsports Park.

It’s not unusual for some NASCAR drivers to race on smaller speedways – Stewart raced at 311 Motor Speedway seven years ago.

Everyone agrees that the death of the young driver was a tragedy, but now folks are rethinking race safety.

Mike Fulp owns 311 Motor Speedway in Stokes County. He said he understands that tempers flare during the races, but safety comes first with speeds up to 140 miles per hour.

Extras will need to report to the Lawrence Joel Veterans Memorial Coliseum and follow the signs to the Extras parking lot. All Extras working as background for the day will receive a lunch, and snacks throughout the day.

Bull riding scenes will be filmed, so extras will need to wear western gear.

The film, based on the book, follows two love stories: one told through the memories of a 90-year-old man fading in and out of consciousness thinking back on his life with his late wife, and the other a new romance blossoming between a young college student and a handsome bull rider.

North Carolina ranks number 11 in the country for states with the best food and drink options, according to Thrillist.

Thrillist recommended the best “under the radar” restaurants in the United States. They recently released an article ranking every state in the country by its food and drink options.

Asheville was North Carolina’s lead point on the list. The mountain area has more breweries per capita than any city in the country, according to the site. Krispy Kreme, Texas Pete’s and Cheerwine were also created in North Carolina.

California landed the top spot, the state’s 80,000 farms produce half of all U.S.-grown fruits, nuts and vegetables.  

The site listed North and South Dakota as the bottom two states. Click here to see how each state ranked.
