What is your favourite thing about Chuckwagon Racing? I enjoy going from show to show and seeing new people & meeting new sponsors. Always someone shakes my hand who I don’t know but they know “McCallum Racing Team” so I must be doing something good out there when I race.

Who are the unsung heroes in your barn and biggest help? Barn help is Garfield Morin, he has been there for years. My brother Mervin McCallum has been my main support from day one, helps with training & up keep of the horses all year round without his help it would be a challenge to do this on my own. My family helps along the way when they can during the shows. My spouse Sheila is also a big support, she helps in the barn as well is the main cook.
