Personal Information
A 2nd generation chuckwagon driver and the son of reigning World Champion Kirk Sutherland, 2014 was a much improved year for Mitch and will see him return to the Calgary Stampede GMC Rangeland Derby in 2015. 2014 saw Mitch post 6 top ten runs, which includes two day maney runs and two runs that cracked the top five. Top ten overall aggregate finishes at the Saskatoon World Chuckwagon Races and Guy Weadick Days were his best of the season. Mitch won the 2011 Richard Cosgrave Badlands Dinosaur Derby en route to being named the 2011 WPCA Top Rookie Driver. Mitch joined Rick Fraser and Jerry Bremner as the only drivers in WPCA history to win a show championship and the Top Rookie Driver buckle in the same year. He started his career in on the amateur Western Chuckwagon Association (WCA) circuit in 2004 and was the overall WCA champion in back to back years in 2008 and 2009. He won twelve WCA show championships during his tenure with the WCA. Prior to driving chuckwagons Mitch played football for the University of Alberta Golden Bears where he received All Canadian Honors. He was drafted in 2002 by the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League and went on to attend training camp with the Alouettes later that year. Mitch is a 2nd generation chuckwagon driver whose father is fellow competitor Kirk Sutherland. He is an owner/operator of Hitch’Em Oilfield Hauling, and enjoys watching hockey. Mitch and his wife Heather have two children – Emerson and Weston – and make their home in Grande Prairie, Alberta.
