The thrilling All Pro Canadian Chuckwagon and World Professional Chuckwagon Association races are always fan-favourites for both cheering on the daring dash of the rigs as well as a chance to bet on your favourite during the evening performances of the Ponoka Stampede. In this great early 1970s photo the chuckwagons are rumbling through a sea of mud and rain across the finish line in front of a packed grandstand crowd. They will be running this year at 6:30 p.m. on June 27th to July 1st, with the Ponoka Stampede $10,000 dash for cash and $50,000 Tommy Dorchester Dash for Cash both hitting the track on Monday, July 2nd at 6:30 p.m.
