2011 North American Chuckwagon Championship – High River, AB
The finals of the North American Chuckwagon Championship at Guy Weadick Days in High River ran Sunday afternoon under partly cloudy skies and a comfortable 16°C. The crowd was huge, the track was good, and Jerry Bremner, driving the Cascade Energy Services L.P outfit, and along with outriders Chad Cosgrave and Chad Fike, came from fifth place overall at the start of the day to claim his 3rd career North American Chuckwagon Championship.
On the strength of a second place run on the day, Bremner vaulted into first place overall in the aggregate standings with a 4-day combined time of 5:09.97, and captured the championship by just 10 one-hundreds of a second ahead of day 3 leader Doug Irvine who fell into second place overall. Colt Cosgrave ended up in third place overall with Troy Dorchester and sophomore driver John Walters rounding out the top five overall.
As far as day results are concerned, for the second consecutive night Kelly Sutherland, driving the Knelsen Rock Products Ltd. outfit was the fast wagon on the day after posting a time of 1:16.02 from barrel 2 in the fifth heat. 2011 North American Champion Jerry Bremner was second on the day, 51 one-hundreds of a second behind Sutherland, with Colt Cosgrave, Chad Harden and Troy Dorchester making out the top five on the night.
