Personal Information
After celebrating a double anniversary last season, 2017 will be Jim’s 3rd consecutive season on the WPCA Pro Tour. 2016 marked Jim’s 40th season as a chuckwagon driver, he made his 35th start as a driver at the Calgary Stampede GMC Rangeland Derby, and a 9th place run at Ashley Richards Memorial Presented By Dakota Dunes Casino was his best of the year. Jim received the Calgary Stampede's prestigious Guy Weadick Award in 2002 and had the second highest selling canvas at the Calgary Stampede in 2009. Jim competed at the Calgary Stampede GMC Rangeland Derby for 33 consecutive years from 1979-2011, and drove for injured driver Devin Mitsuing in 2013. Prior to joining the WPCA, Jim enjoyed a long and prosperous career on the Canadian Professional Chuckwagon Association (CPCA) circuit where he won several CPCA show championships, twice qualified for the championship final heat for the CPCA Championship, received the CPCA Award for Excellence in Corporate Involvement in 2001, and was the CPCA's Top Rookie Driver in 1977. His most recent show championship win came on his fiftieth birthday in 2006 at the Cold Lake Stampede when he had a perfect show by posting three consecutive first place runs over the three day show. In the off season Jim enjoys traveling, and is the owner of Ultimate Bit Service Inc. Jim is the older brother to fellow driver Ross Knight, cousin to driver Wayne Knight, and uncle of outrider Casey Knight. Jim has 3 children - Chad, Nicole and Chantal - and makes his home in St. Walburg, Saskatchewan.
