Chanse Vigen races at the Dawson Creek Fall Fair and Rodeo!

Posted by NicoleRubin on August 11, 2014

Troyer Ventures is proud to support Chanse Vigen at the Dawson Creek Fall Fair and Rodeo!  Troyer hosted a barbeque on Friday afternoon which was well attended - our thanks to those who helped organize and cook!  After the exciting chuckwagon races that evening there was live country music with Brad Simms at the Troyer Tent.


Chanse raced clean over the weekend with no penalties, but it wasn’t without incident.  Last night he was racing off the #2 barrel when the driver from the #1 barrel crossed the lane marker and came into Chanses lane.  When Chanse came around his top barrel, his lead team ran into the wagon box of the #1 driver.  Chanse was able to get his team stopped on the first turn and head back to the barn. Fortunately, it appears there are only minor cuts to his horses.  As he didn’t complete the race, he received a “No time”, but after the official enquiry by the judges, they confirmed he was not at fault in the accident so they gave him an “average time” for the night which put him in 13th place for the night and gave him 24 points towards the world standings. 

 

Chanse is heading to Rocky Mountain House for the final weekend of racing, he is currently sitting in 26th place which is the last position to qualify for Calgary in 2015.  Good luck in Rocky Mountain House, Chanse!
