Along with 9 years of outriding experience Kris now has 5 years of driving experience under his belt. Kris had his best year to date in 2018 finishing 10th overall in the standings and achieving his ultimate goal of getting an invite to the 2019 Calgary Stampede. 2018 saw Kris having 9 Top 10 runs and another 2 more Top 12 finishes.  Kris finished in the top 10 at 5 of the 10 tour stops in 2018. Kris is one of many drivers in his family: he got to watch his cousins Vern Nolin, Shane Nolin and BJ Carey for many years before becoming successful on his own. Kris has proven to be one of the CPCA’s contenders and with the success he saw in 2018 you can be sure he will be a contender in 2019.
