It was another good night of racing on night 2 of the Grande Prairie Stompede. Weather and racetrack conditions were great and some outstanding chuckwagon races were once again witnessed by the crowd on hand. When the night wrapped up, it was Jamie Laboucane who took the day money after a penalty free run of 1:16.78.

Coming off barrel number 1 in heat number 9, Laboucane, driving the Davco Industrial Construction Services Ltd. outfit placed first overall for the day by just 11 one-hundredths of a second over 2010 Grande Prairie Stompede Champion Rae Croteau Jr. Doug Irvine grabbed third place, Obrey Motowylo placed fourth, and Chad Fike rounded out the top five on the night.

After two runs, Rae Croteau Jr. leads the 2022 Grande Prairie Stompede with a two day total of 2:34.96. That puts him just 28 one-hundredths of a seconds ahead of rookie driver Kale Lajeunesse who sits second, day 1 winner Kirk Sutherland is third and Doug Irvine holding down fourth place overall. Layne MacGillivray is fifth overall just 27 one-hundredths of a second out of fourth hole.

The top wagon in the aggregate after Saturday's run will receive the Ralph Vigen Memorial Award and the use of a new GMC Truck for one year. The top 4 drivers in the aggregate after Saturday night will go into the championship final heat on Sunday where the winner will receive a big cheque and the 2022 Grande Prairie Stompede Championship.

Day three of the Grande Prairie Stompede can be heard live Friday night, May 27, 2022 on Real Country 910AM starting at 8:30pm Eastern, 7:30pm Central, 6:30pm Mountain Time. As well, fans can watch the races live on the Cowboy Channel + App streaming platform.
