Personal Information
In the past five years, Evan has carved out a pretty respectable resume on the WPCA Pro Tour. A win at the 2012 Medicine Hat Exhibition & Stampede, two horses named to the WPCA Equine Outfit of Excellence, qualifying for five championship final heats, placing inside the top five in the World Standings twice and being the recipient of the Herman Flad Memorial Award for the WPCA's Most Improved Driver in 2012 are among Evan’s highlights. In 2016 Evan posted 13 top ten runs, including 6 runs that cracked the top 5. He just missed a spot in the Calgary Stampede’s “Semi Final Saturday,” placing 9th overall, just 32 one-hundredths of a second outside of the final spot and a fourth place overall finish at the Strathmore Stampede were his best of 2016. Evan started his career in 2008 on the Western Chuckwagon Association (WCA) circuit where he won the WCA’s Rycroft show in 2009, was runner-up for the WCA championship, and was named the WCA’s Most Improved Driver. Prior to driving big chuckwagons, Evan started racing pony chariots when he was 14 and pony chuckwagons at 16. Evan raced pony wagons from British Columbia to Manitoba and even into Nebraska where he won roughly a half dozen shows. Evan is a 2nd generation driver whose uncle is former driver Ray Salmond and cousin is current driver Rod Salmond. In the off season, Evan is a harness maker and works in the forestry industry, and enjoys hockey and ski-dooing in the off season. Evan and his wife Adriane have two children – Rose and Cash – and make their home in Hudson Bay, Saskatchewan.
