There was a little sun shower just prior to the start of the first race, but track conditions were reasonably good nonetheless. Night 3 saw Rick Fraser, driving the Heninger Toyota / Chickwagon! Foundation for Women outfit, posted the top time of the night with a 1:16.25.

Coming off barrel number 2 in heat number 4, Fraser won the day money by 36 one-hundreds of a second over Gary Gorst who placed second for the night. Buddy Bensmiller, Neal Walgenbach and Devin Mitsuing rounded out the top 5 for the night.

10-time Calgary Stampede champion Kelly Sutherland continues to lead the overall aggregate with a 3 day total of 3:50.59. He is followed closely by 10-time Calgary Stampede champion Buddy Bensmiller with Devin Mitsuing, Neal Walgenbach and Kurt Bensmiller filling out the top five after three runs.

The aggregate winner will be declared after 8 nights on Friday, July 16, and the top 8 in the aggregate on that day will go into “Semi Final Saturday.” The top 4 times from heats 8 and 9 on semi final Saturday on July 17 will go into the sudden death championship final heat. The winner of the final heat will be declared the 2010 Calgary Stampede Rangeland Derby Champion.
