The 2010 World Professional Chuckwagon Association season continued at the Rocky Mountain Chuckwagon Championship in Rocky Mountain House, AB the weekend of August 19-22. Among those racing was World Financial Group-sponsored chuckwagon driver Buddy Bensmiller who faced off each day against Jerry Bremner, Kelly Sutherland and Kirk Sutherland.
The first day of the RMCC was a slow starter for Buddy and the WFG logo-tarped wagon. He crossed the finish line fourth in a close race with a time of 1:20.40. However, Kirk was penalized for a “wheel knocked barrel”, allowing Buddy’s 16 points to earn him third place.
Day two also saw a fourth place finish for Buddy. His time of 1:22.99 was almost three seconds off the leader and earned him 6 points. The third day Buddy drove the WFG tarped wagon to a finish of 1:23.09. Despite running a clean race, his time earned him third place and 16 points.
The final day of racing saw Buddy cross the finish line first with a time of 1:23.85, earning him 32 points. Overall, Buddy finished the Rocky Mountain Chuckwagon Championship with a total time of 5:30.33 and 70 points.
In the World Standings, our WFG-sponsored racer remains in second place with a total of 1053.5 points. Up next for Buddy is the Badlands Dinosaur Stampede in Drumheller, AB, starting on August 27. We wish Buddy all the best for the remainder of the season!
