Personal Information 
One of the WPCA’s longest tenured drivers, Troy had a fast start to the 2017 season at the Ashley Richards Memorial presented by Dakota Dunes Casino in Saskatoon where a second place run and a seventh place run in four days contributed to a season best third place overall finish. An additional tenth place run at the Battle of the North were Troy’s best of 2017. Troy was the Aggregate Winner at the Colonial Days Fair in Lloydminster in 2015, received the WPCA Showmanship Award winner for Professionalism in 2003, and has qualified for two major championship final heats at two of chuckwagon racing’s biggest events at the Ponoka Stampede and Edmonton’s Chuckwagon Derby, and in 2011, Troy was among the top four drivers on the WPCA Pro Tour in terms of number of day monies won. Troy started his driving career at the young age of 16 on the Northern Professional Chuckwagon Association (now CPCA) circuit, and received the NPCA’s Most Sportsmanlike Driver award in 1992. A second generation chuckwagon driver, Troy is the son of the late Herman Flad - former Calgary Stampede Rangeland Derby Champion, and is father to Western Chuckwagon Association Driver Blaid Flad. He is the younger brother to current driver Darcy Flad and cousin to multi-time World Champion Outrider Chance Flad.
