This season starter event is a traditional Stompede with all the extras and it is big. This year, once again, due to the extraordinary year round efforts of the Grande Prairie Chuckwagon Heritage Foundation, drivers of the WCA will be racing for their portion of $125,000 Dash Sunday, a whopping $30,000. This amazing purse wil help drivers carry on down the road, bringing more chuckwagon excitement to the residents in the Peace. With a mandate to preserve an important part of our western history, this dedicated group does an outstanding job. They are responsible for many of the Dash Sunday events on the WCA circuit. Learn more about who they are through their link above.

Kick off the season with us at the Bustin Out BBQ in the parking lot of Revolution Place (formerly the Crystal Center) on Tues, May 26 from 11:00-1:30. Come on down, have some lunch and check out the wagons. Everyone welcome. Thank you to Wapiti Gravel Supplier for this event. For a complete listing of events throughout the Stompede, check out their website from the link above.
