Personal Information
One of chuckwagon racing's top all around competitors, Layne had one of the greatest turn around seasons in WPCA history. After placing a disappointing 33rd in the World Standings in 2016, Layne opened up the 2017 season with a day money run and never looked back. He qualified for two championship final heats at two of chuckwagon racing’s biggest events – the Grande Prairie Stompede and the Ponoka Stampede en route to winning the Herman Flad Memorial Award as the WPCA’s Most Improved Driver. He posted 17 top ten runs, including a first place run at the Grande Prairie Stompede and 6 runs that placed inside the top five. He was runner-up for the Ralph Vigen Memorial Award symbolic of the best aggregate time at the Grande Prairie Stompede, and had top five overall aggregate finishes at Guy Weadick Days and the Ponoka Stampede. He spent most of the 2017 season in second place overall in the World Standings before finishing the year a career best 3rd place overall. Layne swept the Colonial Days Fair in 2011 by winning both the championship final heat and the Colonial Days Aggregate title, and was honored with the prestigious WPCA Chuckwagon Person of the Year Award in 2009. Layne started his chuckwagon career as an outrider and enjoyed a very successful career highlighted by winning two Calgary Stampede Rangeland Derby Championship in 2000 and 2004 with Hughie Sinclair, and Sinclair's Calgary Stampede Aggregate winner in 2000. Layne started his career with the CPCA and won two CPCA show championships at the Saskatoon Exhibition Derby and the Wainwright Stampede, and twice qualified for the winner–take–all championship final heat for the CPCA Championship. He was the CPCA's Most Improved Driver in 2001, the CPCA's High Point Rookie Driver in 2000, and twice was named the CPCA's Most Sportsmanlike Driver. A 3rd generation chuckwagon driver, Layne is the son of former driver Dennis MacGillivray and is the great-nephew of former driver and legendary chuckwagon promoter Cliff Claggett. Layne and his wife Loreena - the 2008 Ty Tournier Memorial Award recipient - have 2 children - Taygan and Trey - and now make their home in Halkirk, Alberta.
