How did you get into Chuckwagon Racing: I am a third generation wagon driver with both my grandfather’s Allan Bensmiller, Allen Smith and my father Buddy Bensmiller. Being a wagon driver is in my blood to say the least.

Most Memorable Chuckwagon Racing Moment: Winning my first day money at the Calgary Stampede in 2016 was a very memorable moment, but winning the Stampede in 2003 behind my dad Buddy is my most memorable for sure.
