2019 Calgary Stampede GMC Rangeland Derby – Calgary, Alberta

It was another perfect night for chuckwagon racing at the Calgary Stampede GMC Rangeland Derby. Perfect racetrack and weather conditions were the recipe for an outstanding night of chuckwagon racing. When the night was complete, it was Todd Baptiste, driving the Friends of the Brakemen – Manteo with Groundswell outfit, who topped the field with the fast time of the week so far after a penalty free run of 1:11.55.

From barrel number 3 in the 8th heat of the evening, Baptiste was the top wagon on the night by 33 one-hundredths of a second over Vern Nolin. Gary Gorst placed third, followed by two-time champion Luke Tournier, with Logan Gorst completing the top five on the night.

Logan Gorst regains first place in the overall aggregate standings with a five-day total of 6:17.7. That puts him 1.17 seconds ahead of day money winner Todd Baptiste who moved up into second place overall. Chad Fike continues to hold onto third place overall, with Luke Tournier and Chance Bensmiller each moving up into the top five. Evan Salmond, Chad Harden and Ross Knight make up the top eight after five nights, with Vern Nolin and Layne MacGillivray knocking on the door in 9th and 10th place respectively.

The Richard Cosgrave Memorial Trophy, symbolic of the Calgary Stampede aggregate winner will be declared after 8 nights on Friday, July 12, and the top 8 in the aggregate on that day will go into “Semi Final Saturday.” The top 4 times from the two semi-final heats on semi on Saturday on July 13 will go into the championship final heat.
