It was another perfect night for chuckwagon racing at the Calgary Stampede Cowboys Rangeland Derby. The temperatures were warm, the track conditions were excellent, and there was some great racing to be seen with a full house. As the night came to a close, it was 2012 GMC Rangeland Derby champion Troy Dorchester, with the Interac outfit, topping the field with the fastest time of the night after a penalty-free run of 1:10.93.

Dorchester started third in Heat 6 and led the night by 33 hundredths of a second over Calgary Stampede Track Record holder Obrey Motowyo. 2024 finalist Ross Knight was third, followed by 2024 Grande Prairie Stompede Champion Jamie Laboucane and reigning Cowboys Rangeland Derby Champion Layne MacGillivray rounding out the night’s top five.

A new leader has emerged as Chad Fike now tops the overall standings with a four-run total of 4:47.65. That puts him exactly 1.63 seconds ahead of Jamie Laboucane, with Rae Croteau Jr. and Chanse Vigen now sharing third overall, with reigning champion Layne MacGillivray in 5th overall, 1.18 seconds out of the third hole. Jason Glass, who led the overall standings the past two nights, knocked over a barrel and dropped to 6th overall, 2.03 seconds out of a possible spot in the Championship Final Heat.

The top 3 in the overall standings after Saturday, July 13, 2024 will advance to the Championship Finals. The winner of the Championship Finals will be declared the 2024 Calgary Stampede Rangeland Derby Champion.
