Amber L’Heureux is ready to make history. When the horn sounds to start the 2019 Canadian Professional Chuckwagon Association (CPCA) season, L’Heureux will be the first female in the circuit’s six-decade history to navigate the barrels.
L’Heureux will purchase an official membership to the CPCA at the organization’s annual general meeting on Saturday, Oct. 20, making it official.
“It’s been a long road to reach this point in my career and I couldn’t be more excited. I started racing when I was 14 in a small chariot with two ponies. Hard work, determination and a love for this sport brought me to where I am today,” says L’Heureux, who hails from Glaslyn, Sask. “I want every little girl to know there is no limit to what they can do.”
The 25-year-old passed the CPCA sanctioning tests in July and has already begun training and preparations for the 2019 racing season. North Battleford will host her debut May 31 – June 2.
L’Heureux’s aspirations for the rookie season are to run clean and consistently, to finish in top 10 and win Rookie of the Year. Her parents and grandfather, who were also on the track with chariots and wagons, could not be more excited for L’Heureux to take this next step for their family legacy.
