When Dave Lewis said he'd drive two chuckwagons in the Lethbridge Whoop-Up Days the other 10 outfits didn't know what they'd let themselves in for Lewis not only won the overall championship aboard the Lyle Adams pocketing over but he added an additional to the coffers by placing second in the Stewart Ranch wagon.
