Personal Information
A 4th generation chuckwagon man and one of the most naturally skilled athletes in professional chuckwagon racing, Chad just completed his fifth season as a chuckwagon driver on the WPCA Pro Tour. He won the Orville Strandquist Memorial Award for Top Rookie Driver at the Calgary Stampede in 2015, and followed it up in 2016 when he was the recipient of the Herman Flad Memorial Award as the WPCA’s Most Improved Driver. 2017 saw Chad receive the Kenn Borek Memorial Award for Most Sportsmanlike Driver at the Battle of the North where a fifth place run and a fifth place overall finish was his best of the season which included 7 top ten runs. Chad qualified for his first WPCA championship final heat at the Grande Prairie Stompede in 2014, and when he made his debut as a chuckwagon driver on the Western Chuckwagon Association (WCA) circuit in 2012, he qualified for the dash for cash heats in both at the Grande Prairie and Dawson Creek stops – the first two race meets of his career. Chad was the WPCA Top Rookie Driver in 2013 and the World Champion Outrider in 2012. As an outrider, he was part of two Calgary Stampede Rangeland Derby Championship outfits, three Calgary Stampede Aggregate winners, and was the WPCA’s Top Rookie Outrider in 2005. Chad is a 4th generation chuckwagon competitor, whose great-grandfather Wilbur David and grandfather Ron David are former drivers, he is the younger brother to fellow driver Jordie Fike, and his mother Dona is a former WPCA chuckwagon judge. Chad and his wife Catlin have two children - Racin and Ryden - and make their home in Cremona, Alberta in the off season. Chad runs the hockey rink in Cremona and enjoys dirt biking, basketball, & golfing.
