Now a 16 year veteran of chuckwagon racing, Derek’s first year with the club garnered him the 2011 Rookie of the Year Award. He consistently finishes in the top half of the standings, and has qualified for the Dash for Cash final heat a number of times.

In 2016, Derek was Grande Prairie Stompede Runner Up Aggregate Champion, won the GP Stompede Chuckwagon Heritage Foundation Dash for Cash and was Runner Up Aggregate Champion at the Grimshaw Rodeo. It’s clear he’s is on his way to the top.

Derek is an excellent competitor on the track, running a fast, clean race, and an active, enthusiastic member off the track. He is energetic, has good ideas and is often looking for ways to engage the fans and improve the club. In 2015, Derek was awarded the Masters Award in appreciation for his ongoing and outstanding effort to the WCA. Derek currently sits on the WCA Executive as a Director and is very active in his position.

Derek’s winning team includes his wife, Dale and their 2 children, Fraser and Andy. Racing wagons is a family event for the Aeblys. Both Fraser and Andy participate in the sport on a much smaller scale-you’ll find them in the wagon box of a mini chuck wagon outfit!

Off the track, Derek lives in Grande Prairie and works as a Production Foreman for

7 Generations Energy.
