RodeoChat: Rodeo runs deep in your family. Your family has reached a lot of success. But, you have also reached a lot of success as well. What’s one highlight that you’ve reached that no one else in your family has done?
Justin Granger: Yes rodeo does run in my family. My father(Teddy Granger) rode bulls so does my uncle(Terrance Granger). Yes, I’ve been blessed with success. An I thank the Lord. I’d say making my appearance at the PBR Built Ford Tough Series.
RodeoChat: When was your first PBR appearance? And what was it like riding on the PBR BFTS?
Justin Granger: My first BFTS appearance was Albuquerque NM 2011. It was a dream come true. I was pretty darn nervous but I did my best to stay calm an have fun. But i didn’t do to good that weekend. Sure was a great experience with the top riders that year.
RodeoChat: Now you have your own bull riding invitational coming up this Saturday in Tuba City, AZ. What’s it like having an invitational?
Justin Granger: Its great. It’s my first year having a invite. But years before it was just an open BullRiding. So they’ll be a lot of young talent this Saturday. That’ll match up against some rank bulls from WarPony Bucking Bulls.
RodeoChat: What are your plans for this summer? Has your summer run already started?
Justin Granger: My plans are to hit as many PBR events an get points to make finals. And I’ll also hit INFR tour rodeos. My summer run will start next month. It’ll be a busy summer once again.

Justin Granger: Be a PBR World Champion. A lot of work ahead of me.
