Personal Information
After nine seasons of driving thoroughbred chuckwagons, Layne decided to call it a career after the 2017 season. Driving the first half of the season on the WPCA Pro Tour, 2017 saw Layne post 7 top ten runs, including 1 first place run at the Ponoka Stampede and 5 runs that cracked the top five. An eighth-place overall finish at Guy Weadick Days and a fifth place overall finish at the Ponoka Stampede where he made the Semi-Final Round were his best of the season with the WPCA. After the Calgary Stampede, Layne drove as a replacement driver for injured driver Jamie Laboucane on the CPCA circuit and won the first show championship of his career at the CPCA’s Frog Lake First Nation show.  Layne won the Calgary Stampede's Orville Strandquist Award for Top Rookie Driver in 2011 and was the CPCA’s High Point Rookie Driver in 2009. 2014 was his most successful season as he placed 2nd in the CPCA standings, qualified for the championship final heat for the CPCA Championship, had a horse named to the CPCA Equine Outfit of Excellence, and received CPCA Family of the Year honors. Layne started racing pony wagons at fifteen years old with the North-West Saskatchewan Pony Chuckwagon and Chariot Association, winning the overall championship three times. Layne is a third generation chuckwagon competitor whose mother, Mae Gorst, was the first full-time female outrider. Layne is also a nephew to driver Gary Gorst and cousin to fellow drivers Dustin Gorst and Logan Gorst. Layne and his wife Bobbi have two sons - Carter and Cruze - and make their home in Rapid View, Saskatchewan.
