Personal Information

One of the most popular and talented young drivers on the WPCA Pro Tour, Chance just completed his best season as chuckwagon driver. He qualified for his first career championship final heat at the 2022 Bonnyville Chuckwagon Championship where he was number one in the overall aggregate standings. The 2022 season also saw Chance post 16 top ten runs, including a day money run at the Bonnyville Chuckwagon Championship and six runs that cracked the top five. The first place overall aggregate finish at Bonnyville and a ninth-place overall finish at the Battle of the Rockies were his best of the year.

Chance was the WPCA’s Top Rookie Driver in 2019, and will be one of two drivers asked to be the Chuckwagon 101 driver at the 2023 Calgary Stampede Rangeland Derby. Chance made his debut as a driver part way through the 2018 season at the Strathmore Stampede, and in 2016 became just the third outrider to have twice won chuckwagon racing’s modern day “Triple Crown” in a single season by capturing the Ponoka Stampede, Calgary Stampede Aggregate and the GMC Rangeland Derby.

Chance has won three World Outriding Titles, five Ponoka Stampede championships, five Calgary Stampede Aggregate buckles, and four Calgary Stampede GMC Rangeland Derby championships. He received the Rod Glass Memorial Award for most improved outrider in 2009, and in 2008 was the WPCA Top Rookie Outrider.

Chance is the great-nephew of former driver the late Herman Flad, and cousin to drivers Troy and Darcy Flad, and older brother to former outrider Cole Flad. Chance and his girlfriend Brittany make their home in Arrowwood, Alberta.
