Beresford man racing at Calgary Stampede


If you happen to be watching the Calgary Stampede chuckwagon races on TV you may spot a familiar face.

Pierre-Luc Savoie of Beresford is part of the Mark Sutherland Chuckwagon Racing Team, one of 35 teams vying for a cash prize and the coveted buckle. 

The 22-year-old says it's a fantastic sport and would like to see it become better known amongst New Brunswickers.

Savoie and Team Sutherland compete in the 'rangeland derby' with races taking place until Sunday, July 16.

It's Savoie's second year at the stampede.
