Personal Information
One of chuckwagon racing's top all around competitors, Layne has developed the reputation of being a “go to guy.” On opening night at the 2016 Strathmore Stampede, Layne helped out injured driver Colt Cosgrave and drove his outfit to a day money run. He did a similar thing in 2010 at Edmonton’s Chuckwagon Derby when he drove injured Grant Profit’s outfit to a first place run on the final night of qualifying to get the Profit outfit into Edmonton’s championship final heat and qualified his own outfit to Edmonton’s championship final heat as well. 2016 also saw Layne post 8 top ten runs, with 4 of those runs placing inside the top five. He swept the 2011 Colonial Days Fair by winning both the championship final heat and the Colonial Days Aggregate title. . Layne was honored with the prestigious WPCA Chuckwagon Person of the Year Award in 2009, and won his first Calgary Stampede day money in 2014. A successful outrider as well, Layne outrode for 2 of Hugh Sinclair's Calgary Stampede Rangeland Derby Championship outfits in 2000 and 2004, and Sinclair's Calgary Stampede Aggregate winner in 2000. Layne started his career with the CPCA and won two CPCA show championships at the Saskatoon Exhibition Derby and the Wainwright Stampede, and twice qualified for the winner–take–all championship final heat for the CPCA Championship. He was the CPCA's Most Improved Driver in 2001, the CPCA's High Point Rookie Driver in 2000, and twice was named the CPCA's Most Sportsmanlike Driver. A 3rd generation chuckwagon driver, Layne is the son of former driver Dennis MacGillivray and is the great-nephew of former driver and legendary chuckwagon promoter Cliff Claggett. Layne and his wife Loreena - the 2008 Ty Tournier Memorial Award recipient - have 2 children - Taygan and Trey - and now make their home in Halkirk, Alberta.
