It was a good night of racing on night 2 of the Stompede. Racetrack conditions were great and some outstanding chuckwagon races were witnessed by the crowd on hand. When the night wrapped up, it was former World Champion Luke Tournier who took the day money after a penalty free run of 1:15.26.

Coming off barrel number 4 in heat number 7, Tournier, driving the Barrack Energy Services outfit placed first overall for the day by just 32 one-hundredths of a second over Cody Ridsdale, with day 1 winner Vern Nolin placing third, Codey McCurrach placing fourth, and Mike Vigen rounding out the top five on the night.

After two runs, Vern Nolin leads the Grande Prairie Stompede with a two day total of 2:30.74. That puts him just 16 one-hundredths of a seconds ahead of Luke Tournier who sits second, Kurt Bensmiller is third and Codey McCurrach holding down fourth place overall. Mark Sutherland is fifth overall just 22 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 $25,000.00 winner’s cheque and the Grande Prairie Stompede Championship.
