Rae Croteau of Lloydminster, SK will be joining us Along the Wagon Trail 2020. Rae got into Chuckwagon racing by following in his Grandfather Ray Croteau and father Bert Croteau’s footsteps, which understandably, are also his greatest influence in the sport. Rae had been in the driver’s seat for 18 years with his rookie year being in 1999, and then in 2015, he decided to take a break from it all. His favorite thing about racing is the family, horses, competition and sponsors. As most drivers have a routine or superstition during race day, Rae has a superstition for being clean shaven for Barrel 1. He has made 17 Calgary Stampede appearances in his racing career and his most memorable moment is finishing second at the Calgary Stampede in 2014. Rae’s primary goal for the 2020 race season is to run clean and finish in the top 5.
