Gold Horse Casino & Border Tribal Council on board as main sponsor of Chuckwagon

The North American Chuckwagon Championship announces the Gold Horse Casino & Border Tribal Council as the title sponsor of the 2022 show at Lloydminster.

The second edition of this nine-day event is scheduled for July 8-16 at Halstead Downs
Racecourse at the Lloydminster Agricultural Exhibition Association. Car drivers of both
the CPCA (Canadian Professional Chuckwagon Association) and the WPCA (World Professional Chuckwagon Association) will compete for prize money and bragging rights.

Last year’s winner Logan Gorst will defend his title against a packed field-
renowned drivers, say event planners.

Gold Horse Casino General Manager Roger Anderson expresses his pride in supporting the event with regards to the local economy, tourism, wagon fans and the
regional area.

“We bring people into this community and I hope we put ourselves between the drivers, the spectators, the families, the friends; hopefully we will have 6,000 people in this community during the week. And we expect more.

Anderson adds that they see their involvement as a way to give back.

“There are a lot of great things that happen to a community when an event of this magnitude comes to town, not just the economic impact and tourism, but a whole
sense of unity and community.

Another attraction is their Meet the Drivers for families and fans at Gold Horse Casino on July 7 from 7-9pm. Then at 9 p.m., they will have the cabaret with artists Loretta King and Just The Boyz at the center of events.

Additionally, the organizers have placed a trolley with a NACC tarp at the entrance of Gold Horse Casino and are inviting fans to take their selfies and post on social media with #NACC2022 to try their luck and get tickets for the final. .

Tribal Council as the title sponsor of the 2nd North American Cart Championships and they look forward to welcoming everyone to Halstead Downs.

She sees the importance of family in the brotherhood of wagons.

“Anyone who’s been on wagons knows it’s very family oriented. Your family travels the road with you. They are essential for you to ride on the road only in daily errands. Most people see the minute or minute and a half the drivers are on the track. They don’t see what’s going on there. That’s two months of training before you even participate in your first race.

The North American Forklift Championship will feature races nightly at 6:30 p.m., starting on opening night July 8.

From July 13-16, when the Lloyd Ex Fair begins, the NACC will run in conjunction with the Fair.

Tickets are available from the Lloydminster Agricultural Exhibition Association office or from the LAEA website.
