- 2019: Rod Glass Memorial Award (WPCA Most Improved Outrider)
A third generation chuckwagon competitor, 2018 was Rory's fourth season on the WPCA Pro Tour. Riding full time all year for Blaid Flad, with additional mounts at times behind the likes of Troy Flad, Cliff Cunningham, Kirk Sutherland, Jim Knight, Chad Harden, Jason Glass and Roger Moore. In his rookie season Rory outrode behind his first day money winner behind Colt Cosgrave at the Bonnyville Chuckwagon Championship, and rode in his first championship final heat behind Jason Glass at the season ending Battle of the Rockies. Rory made the first "official" ride of his career on the final day of the 2014 season at the Battle of the Rockies behind Jason Glass, just like his grandfather Lyle Armstrong had done in the early 1950's making his debut ride behind Jason's grandfather Ronnie Glass. Rory is the son of two-time World Champion Outrider Randy Armstrong, grandson of chuckwagon legend Orville Strandquist and former outrider Lyle Armstrong, and cousin to former outrider Eddie Melville. Rory is a farmer and rancher in the off season, and enjoys hunting, hockey and working on trucks. He is single, and makes his home in Elnora, Alberta.
