2011 Season Sponsor 

 

Tyler Helmig comes to the WCA after highly notable career in the WPCA where he won the 1988 Top Rookie award, the 1994 Most Improved driver, the 1999 Klondike Chuckwagon Derby champion, and the 2002 World Chuckwagon Champion Driver award.  All this following a very successful pony racing career.  In fact, Tyler is the only person to have won both Pro pony and Pro thoroughbred championships. In his first year with the WCA, Tyler won the Mile "0" Derby, the Manning Show, and the Dawson Creek Fall Fair show. Even after missing two WCA shows, due to his Rangeland Derby committments, he sat a very respectable 5th place when the season was over.  He enjoys hockey, ski-dooing, and team roping, and makes his home in Leduc with his wife Cindy.
