8 heat of wagons. 20 skilled drivers once again charge down the track for 3 days, Thurs-Sat,

focused on achieving the fastest, clean run for their best chance at the $7,500 purse on day 4 of racing,  Dash Sunday!

We would like to thank the Grande Prairie Chuckwagon Heritage Foundation once again for their sponsorship of this Dash for Cash on Sunday at Teepee Creek. Their ongoing efforts have significantly raised the awareness of chuckwagon racing and it's roots in Alberta. Click on their logo to learn a little more of who they are and what they do to preserve our western way of life.

A big thank you to Western Star & Freighliner of GP for their support at this show

Not only is there a $7,500 Sunday Dash, one very lucky driver will take home a brand new GMC Trophy Truck provided in part by Visa Rentals & Leasing. All he has to do is run faster, harder and cleaner than anyone else. Who will it be? The drivers love the fans and the cheers push them to run harder so bring your quarters, place your bets and as the track announcer, Dennis Hall would say, "Grab the reins and bring your favourite driver home". The GMC trophy truck will be presented to the Teepee Creek Aggregate Champion. Aggregate Champion will be determined by accumulated times after 3 nights of racing.

Who will be our star? It's anyones win!

And, something new this year...

The Shadow Rathole Drilling Drive Safe Award

Shadow Rathole Drilling

With a committment to a superior standard of safety in the workplace, it was a great fit for Shadow Rathole Drilling to team up with the WCA in promoting and encouraging safe, competive driving.  Each night one random heat will be drawn. The driver of that heat with the fastest, penalty free time will receive $250 cash award.

Wagon action starts nightly at 6:30 with WCA thoroughbreds racing at around 7:30

Day 1

Day 1 of racing developed quite nicely for Tyson Graham. Maybe hie is just lucky with that Jersey Developments tarp. Not only was Tyson the recipient of the Shadow Rathole Drilling Safety Award, he placed top spot for the night with a 57.01.With that barrel turn, it's not a suprise. Could be that he may take home that TP Trophy Truck!

But, hold on to your quarters...

Don't count out Rick McRorie & Western Star & Freightliner. Rick is steadliy climbimg up in the standings and tonight's time of 57.32 set in firmly in 2nd spot for the show. He needs a truck. He wants a truck and he's a determined man. 

He could be Teepee Creeks next western star!
