It all starts tonight (Friday) in Grimshaw.

North Peace Stampede

Another battle in the north for the WCA. Friday, July 31 is the start of the last portion of the WCA GMC Pro Tour. Grimshaw's North Peace Stampede is their last show to really impact the standings before heading to the season finale in Dawson Creek. Wagon drivers will be doing their best to compete penalty free while placing at the top. All points count and a No Time could sink you. With a No Time comes no day points and worse yet, no aggregate points. 

 This is a competition for not only the title of 2015 North Peace Stampede Aggregate Champion and all the  bragging rights that go with it, but also  the MSS Trucking $1000 cash prize. The driver with the fastest total time for the show will be the winner.

MSS Trucking

A very big thank you to MSS Trucking and Marvin Sheehan for once again supporting the chuckwagon wagon portion of the North Peace Stampede. Click on his logo to learn more about MSS Trucking

There's more.  This is the show that determines who will take the title of  2015 World Chariot Champion Chariot Driver. Leading the standing going into this show is our 2014 Champion, Todd McCracken with a 24 point lead. With some luck and clean running, he could be sporting a brand new Trophy Buckle and a title to go with it. But, a little bad luck could shake things up. 

 Come on down and enjoy the show. 8 heats in total race at 7:00 PM, Friday through Sunday, July 31- Aug 2. Don't forget your quarters!
