Layne comes from a long line of chuckwagon drivers. Layne is the grandson of former Calgary Stampede Rangeland Derby Champion the late Herman Flad, and son of current WPCA driver Darcy Flad. This will be Layne’s first year racing and we are excited to see him race this year at Grande Prairie Stompede and the Dawson Creek Fall Fair. Layne spends his summers travelling with the WPCA, helping his father. In the off season Layne enjoys ranching and playing hockey. He lives with his family on a ranch in Bodo, AB. We are sure to see this young man succeed in the future.
