The Alberta Professional Chuckwagon and Chariot Association (APCCA) returns to the Westerner Days Fair and Exposition as the sanctioning organization for the Red Deer Motors North American Pony Chuckwagon Championships for 2018.

In addition to the chuckwagon races, Westerner Days 2018 has added a new event and will feature five heats of chariots running prior to the chuckwagons on Friday, Saturday and Sunday only.

“We are thrilled to bring the APCCA back to Red Deer and look forward to some exciting races on the track during Westerner Days,” says Ben Antifaiff, CEO and General Manager at Westerner Park. “There will be some familiar faces and some new ones as the drivers return to Westerner Days and share their passion for this sport.”

Sponsors attending the Tarp Auction on April 18 at the Sheraton will have the opportunity to bid on 40 chuckwagon tarps and 20 chariots. Pre-registration is recommended and all bidders registered prior to April 13 will be entered for a draw to win two weekly admit pins and one weekly parking pass for Westerner Days. Any previous sponsors bringing a new sponsor that successfully bids will have the opportunity to display a 4 x 8 banner in the chuckwagon bowl for the five days of the Fair.
