It was one heck of a ride at the 2019 Calgary Stampede canvas auction last night! When all the dust settled at the auction, Stampede rookie driver Kris Flanagan emerged as the pilot of the legends chuckwagon for 10 days in July. We spent an evening with Kris and his wife getting to know them a little better. From what we can tell this is going to be a great partnership watching Kris compete for top rookie driver when the wagons head back to the barn at the end of Day number 8.
Kris comes to Calgary from his ranch outside of Bonnyville, and brings 9 years of outriding experience Kris and 5 years of driving experience under his belt. Kris had his best year to date in 2018 finishing 10th overall in the standings.
We are excited to be rolling with Chris this stampede! See you in July!
