Biography

When Nathan climbs into the wagon box for the first show in 2014, he will be entering his 7th season with the WCA. Unfortunately, Nathan will only be with the WCA for our first show of the season but we will look forward to seeing him in the wagonbox in 2015.

 Nathan has a history in learning how to do it right in the sport of wagon racing . He has spent time in the barns of champions like Rick Frazer and Neal Walgenbach, and has turned into a champion himself. It’s an impressive career! In his rookie year, 2008,  he was the Grimshaw Show Champion and won the Dash for Cash at the Dawson Creek Exhibition and well as being Runner Up Show Champion. He was Runner Up Show Champion at the Mile 0 Racing Derby in 2009. Nathan continued to acheive in 2010, starting his season by winning the  Dash for Cash  at the Grande Prairie Stompede. He secured the title of Teepee Creek Show Champion. He finished the 2010 season as the 2010 Runner Up Tour Champion.

 Nathan's 2011 season was his best to date. He won the Grande Prairie Stompede, won the Rycroft Chuckwagon Races, won the Teepee Creek Dash for Cash as well as placing as Teepee Creek Runner Up Show Champion, again secured a Runner Up Show Champion title at both the Grimshaw Rodeo and the Dawson Creek Exhibition. His 2011 season ended with him again as Runner Up Tour Champion, but this time only by one point. In 2012, Nathan was unable to attend all shows this season and still finished the tour in an impressive 4th place in the final standings. And 2013, once again, Nathan finished the season at the top of the pack, in 4th place. In 2014, Nathan competed in the Grande Prairie Stompede only.

Nathan is a proven winner who consistently finished in the top. He is a very strong, focused competitor and brings a superior level of competition to the club. His wagon, with the dragon, is colorful and draws your eye to the tarp. He has a great fan base for support that includes his wife, Ashley and his father Dale, who is a regular on the circuit. There is no double the day will come when Nathan is presented with his own set of keys to the GMC Big Truck.

Originally from Sexsmith, he resides in the Grande Prairie area where he works and trains hunting dogs on the side.

As of the summer of 2014, Nathan has chosen to take time off from wagon racing to focus on his young family. We excpect we will see him back in the wagon box one day. Good Luck Nathan.
