Personal Information
After a tremendous career as an outrider, Chance made the move to chuckwagon driver and made his debut run at the Strathmore Stampede in 2018. Competing in just the final 3 shows of the 2018 season, Chance posted 4 top ten runs, including his first career day money run at the Battle of the Rockies, and 1 other run that also cracked the top five, and will maintain his rookie eligibility in 2019. As an outrider, Chance helped drivers Cody Ridsdale and Ross Knight post their first career wins as drivers on the WPCA Pro Tour at the Medicine Hat Stampede and the Battle of the North respectively. Chance became just the third outrider to have twice won chuckwagon racing’s modern day “Triple Crown” in a single season by capturing the Ponoka Stampede, Calgary Stampede Aggregate and the GMC Rangeland Derby. Chance has won three World Titles, five Ponoka Stampede championships, four Calgary Stampede Aggregate buckles, and three Calgary Stampede GMC Rangeland Derby championships. He received the Rod Glass Memorial Award for most improved outrider in 2009, and in 2008 was the WPCA Top Rookie Outrider. He captured his first career show championship in his rookie year at the Ponoka Stampede behind his number one call - Doug Irvine - which he considers one of his most cherished moments. Chance is the great-nephew of former driver the late Herman Flad, and cousin to drivers Troy and Darcy Flad, and older brother to former outrider Cole Flad. He enjoys hockey and hunting in the off season, is single and makes his home in Hughenden, Alberta.
