After spending the 2022 season as a permit driver on the WPCA Pro Tour, Evan will be competing as a full member of the WPCA in 2023. Evan started his career with the Canadian Professional Chuckwagon Association (CPCA) in 2003 as an outrider for his father, former driver Elton Magee, and drove his first race on the CPCA circuit at Dewberry in 2008. He spent 2 seasons with the Western Chuckwagon Association (WCA) in 2013 and 2014 where he won his first career day money at the WCA’s Grande Prairie Stompede. Evan returned to the CPCA the following year and in 2016 he was part of the winning team that won the CPCA’s “Canada Cup.” Over the course of the 2022 season, Evan recorded 9 top ten runs, including 2 runs that placed inside the top five. A ninth-place overall finish at the Dewberry World Chuckwagon Races was his best of the season.
Evan is a third generation chuckwagon driver whose grandfather Les O’Donnell and great-uncle Fred O’Donnell raced chuckwagons throughout Saskatchewan in the 1960’s. His father Elton Magee drove chuckwagons professionally and competed at the Calgary Stampede 3 times in the 1980’s. Evan credits his father, and drivers Kevin Baird, Brian Laboucane, Todd Baptiste and Rick Fraser as being the ones who helped him the most throughout his career.
Evan enjoys NFL Football, building chuckwagons, and owns and operates Saskatoon Mobile Repair offering mobile Heavy Duty Mechanical services. Evan and his wife Allison have two children – Kody and Aaliyah – and make their home in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.
