Chuckwagon Races on Facebook

The Chuckwagon Races started out as a Labor Day party for a few friends by Dan and Peggy Eoff. Not one to just sit around at a party, Dan came up with the idea of racing chuckwagons to add something to the party. Eight teams competed that year, and the Eoff’s notion of an exciting Labor Day party has mushroomed into the world’s largest chuckwagon race.

An estimated 150 teams compete in five different divisions (Oklahoma Land Rush, Four Up Mules, Buckboard, Big Mules, and Classic) for the title of National Champion. Each year, the National Champions in each division take home silver buckles and share in over $20,000 in prizes that include saddles, jackets, and Chuckwagon Bucks– prize money that can be spent at the Trade Show or with any businesses that advertise in the program.
