George Normand

One of the true professionals in modern day chuckwagon racing, George Normand was the first man to win 6 World Chuckwagon Championships.

Although he never captured the Calgary Stampede Rangeland Derby Championship as a driver, George was an outrider for Dave Lewis' 1982 Calgary Stampede Championship Outfit, and qualified for Calgary's sudden death championship final heat 4 consecutive years between 1989 and 1992.

He was the Calgary Stampede Aggregate Winner in 1989, but lost the 1989 sudden death final to his childhood friend Buddy Bensmiller by just 8 one-hundreds of a second in one of the closest finals in history.

He was the first active chuckwagon driver to receive the World Professional Chuckwagon Association's highest award – the Chuckwagon Person of the Year in 1989.

In addition George was inducted into the Alberta Sports Hall of Fame, was honored with the Calgary Stampede’s Pioneers of Rodeo award and the World Professional Chuckwagon Association's Special Tribute Award.

George was an outstanding ambassador for chuckwagon racing, and made significant contributions to advancing and improving the overall status and integrity of the WPCA and the sport of chuckwagon racing in general before he was tragically killed in a racing accident at the Ponoka Stampede in 1994.
