Dewberry World Chuckwagon Races results

It was a great day for chuckwagon racing in the Village of Dewberry as weather and racetrack conditions were perfect on a highly anticipated final day at the Dewberry World Chuckwagon Races.

With the championship on the line in a $25,000.00 final, Layne MacGillivray – driving the Cougar Fuels Outfit, and along with outrider Trey MacGillivray, captured the first show of the 2021 WPCA race season. The win was the first for outrider Trey MacGillivray.

In an extremely exciting championship final heat, MacGillivray captured the Dewberry crown with a penalty free run of 1:10:88 after coming off of barrel position number three in the championship final. Obrey Motowylo from barrel position number two placed second in the heat, just one-one-hundredth of a second behind the winner MacGillivray. Kris Molle in his first show as a member of the WPCA, crossed the finish line first, but a two-second outrider penalty bumped him back to third place in the heat from barrel position number 1. The running times for all three wagons were within 18 one-hundreds of a second of each other.
