It was a classic lineup for the $50,000.00 Tommy Dorchester Sudden Death Championship final heat at the Ponoka Stampede. Four former Ponoka Stampede Champions – Kelly Sutherland, Obrey Motowylo, Grant Profit and Jerry Bremner – battled it out for the championship, and when it was all over, Kelly Sutherland – driving the Red Deer Motors outfit, and along with outriders Chance Flad, Reo King, Todd Goodley and Chanse Vigen emerged as the 2010 Ponoka Stampede Champions. It was the 7th time Kelly Sutherland has won the Ponoka Stampede tying the great Ralph Vigen for the most ever.

Coming off of barrel position number 1 in the sudden death final, Sutherland captured his record tying 7th Ponoka crown with a penalty free run of 1:16.20. Grant Profit placed second in the heat from barrel position number 2, followed by defending champion Obrey Motowylo and Jerry Bremner from barrel positions 3 and 4 respectively.

As far as day results go, Kelly Sutherland’s 1:16.20 held up as the fast run of the day followed by Chad Harden, Luke Tournier, Mark Sutherland and Kirk Sutherland. Kelly Sutherland also ended up with the best 6 day aggregate time of 7:42.15, followed by Grant Profit, Obrey Motowylo, Jerry Bremner and Mark Sutherland

The WPCA Dodge Pro Tour will now take a break for the Calgary Stampede Rangeland Derby from July 9-18, 2010. Chad Harden is the defending champion, and races will run each night at 8:00pm.
