After the opening performance was rained-out days in Dewberry, The Dewberry World Chuckwagon Races wound up on Sunday afternoon being shortened to a 2-day event. Luke Tournier, driving the Ron May Consulting Outfit, and along with outriders Quaid Tournier and Chanse Vigen, emerged as the champions after posting the best 2 day aggregate of 2:19.32.

Tournier won the Dewberry championship by a mere 6 one-hundreds of a second over first day leader Grant Profit, followed by Obrey Motowylo’s number 1 outfit,  Kirk Sutherland’s number 1 outfit and hometown hero Buddy Bensmiller.

Luke Tournier clinched the title with his number 2 outfit after posting fast run on the final day with a 1:09.14. Coming off barrel number 1 in heat 1, Tournier’s Ron May Consulting Outfit, won top money by 19 one-hundreds of a second over local legend Buddy Bensmiller who placed second for the day. Obrey Motowylo’s number 1 outfit placed 3rd for the night, followed by Barry Hodgson’s number 2 outfit that placed 4th, while Obrey Motowylo’s number 2 outfit rounded the top five for the night.

The Dewberry World Chuckwagon Races is a WPCA sanctioned show, but no points are earned towards the world standings. Buckle sponsors for the winning chuckwagon outfit were generously donated by West-Jay Consulting Services Ltd., the Buddy Bensmiller Family, the Sharon (Bensmiller) Bates Family, Sherwood Bros Oilfield Services Ltd., and Ken & Sandra Kneen’s HHD Ltd. Thanks to the Dewberry committee and everyone who made this first year event a tremendous success.
