Afternoon rain and hail made for some interesting races on night 4 of the Calgary Stampede Rangeland Derby. Penalties were in abundance, but when the mud subsided, it was Neal Walgenbach, driving the Team YYC Calgary International Airport outfit who had the top time of the night with a 1:16.91.

Coming off barrel number 2 in heat number 4, Walgenbach won the day money by 65 one-hundreds of a second over Kirk Sutherland who placed second for the night. Gary Gorst, Luke Tournier and Jason Glass rounded out the top 5 for the night.

The day money run moved Walgenbach to the top of the leaderboard with a 4 day aggregate time of 5:09.86. He is followed closely by 10-time Calgary Stampede champion Kelly Sutherland with Gary Gorst, Buddy Bensmiller and Jason Glass filling out the top five after four runs. Rookie driver Devin Mitsuing, who was in 3rd place overall after 3 runs, knocked both barrels and dropped into 28th place overall.

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.
