Brasso Nissan and Calgary AutoMall have banded together and are sponsoring a chuckwagon in this year’s Calgary Stampede! We are extremely excited about having the opportunity to take part in this prestigious event, which has been a part of Calgary since 1923.
The Rangeland Derby, or “Half-Mile of Hell” as the locals call it, is one of the longest lasting and most incredible parts of the whole Calgary Stampede. This year also promises to one of the most exciting, with 36 teams and 216 horses taking part.
The racing will be fierce, as teams vie for the $1.15 million dollar total prize money. Nine heats starting at 7:45pm every night means there will be plenty of racing to behold, and with tickets starting at just $56, this is a must-see event for the whole family!
And of course don’t forget that the world-famous Grandstand Show takes place after the Chuckwagon Races. 166 performers from across Canada are waiting to thrill you and your family with 10 nights of incredible music from a wide variety of genres.
So from July 8th until July 17th, head down to Stampede Park and take in everything that the Calgary Stampede has to offer. And make sure you take in the Chuckwagon Races and cheer on Dallas Dyck competing with the Calgary AutoMall sponsored chuckwagon!
