Although Dale is not a rookie by any mean to chuckwagon racing seeing that he outrode for numerous years, it was his first year to climb into the wagon box. 2018 saw Dale having a record breaking rookie year by not only winning the 2018 CPCA Rookie Driver of the year but also having 10 top 5 runs and 19 top 10 runs. He finished in the top 5 at 4 out of the 10 tour stops and in the top 10 at 7 of those. Dale’s previous experience on the track showed as he not only won the Frog Lake and Turtleford shows but he also made it into the dash in Frog Lake. He clawed his way up in the CPCA standings to finish 4th overall and that earned him a spot in the Lloyd finals dash. The Lloyd dash was a successful one for Dale as he beat out the competition to win the 2018 Year End Championship. Dale’s success earned him an invite to be 1of the 2 demo 101 drivers at the 2019 Calgary Stampede. Dale’s horse Val tied for the 2018 CPCA Equine Outfit of Excellence Right Wheeler award.
