The reigning Rangeland Derby champion skinned the No. 3 barrel and cruised around the track in 1:01.92, tops on Night 2 of the Medicine Hat Exhibition & Stampede.

The Grande Prairie driver vaulted his Tri Well Oilfield Services rig into second place in the aggregate standings.

Rounding out the top 10 were Jason Glass (HR Autoplex & RV; 1:03.50), Chad Harden (Spartan Controls; 1:03.89), Kelly Sutherland (Citation Oilfield; 1:03.94), Jerry Bremner (TrailBlazer RV Centre; 1:03.97), Luke Tournier (Big Country Pipeline; 1:04.05), Grant Profit (Hardcor Well Services; 1:04.06) and Troy Dorchester (Vold Jones & Vold Auctions; 1:04.08).

HORSIN' AROUND: Not everyone finished Heat 6. Two outriding horses collided at the top barrel and went down to the ground, spilling Chad Cosgrave and Wayne Wright.

The two horses, sans riders, took off in pursuit of the wagons but managed to find an opening in the outside fence at the third turn and took off into a open pasture.
