National Chuckwagon Races Has Folks Horsing Around

CLINTON, Ark. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Folks in Arkansas will be horsing around this Labor Day Weekend (Sep. 2-4) as the 21st Annual National Chuckwagon Races gallop their way into town.

More than 20,000 spectators and racers are expected to flock to the local Bar of Feed and Ranch Supply to compete in several high speed chuckwagon races.

Amateur teams of three people – each with a cook, a driver and an outrider – and a horse, of course, gallop down dirt and grass racetracks ranging from 330 yards to a half mile in distance.

Event spokeswoman Peggy Eoff expects people will really enjoy the “Snowy River Race,” in which riders will take two rapid downhill turns before plunging into the river for the big finish.

The winning racers receive belt buckles and “chuckwagon bucks,” which can be used in the western trade shop booths that will be set up around the race area.
