Personal Information
An exciting and spectacular chuckwagon driver and individual, Luke received the WPCA's highest honor when he was named the Chuckwagon Person of the Year for 2013. He is a two–time Calgary Stampede GMC Rangeland Derby Champion, a two–time Calgary Stampede Aggregate winner, and won the Calgary Stampede's Safe Drive Award for the Least Penalized Driver in 2007. He holds the earnings record at the GMC Rangeland Derby set in 2007, has had a record four horses named to the WPCA's Equine Outfit of Excellence, and holds the track record at the Ponoka Stampede. A racing injury at the Strathmore Heritage Days Stampede sidelined Luke for the remainder of the season, but he still managed to post 15 top ten runs, including a day money run at the Ponoka Stampede, and 4 runs that placed inside the top five. He made his sixth career trip to the Ponoka Stampede's winner-take-all-final, and is undefeated in the Calgary Stampede winner-take-all championship final winning twice in two trips. Since joining the WPCA back in 2003, Luke has collected eleven major titles including two Calgary Stampede GMC Rangeland Derby championships, two Calgary Stampede Aggregate titles, and two North American Chuckwagon Championships. Previously a member of the CPCA, Luke won fourteen CPCA show championships, twice qualified for the CPCA’s championship dash, and along received the CPCA's Chuckwagon Family of the Year in 2001. He is the father of outrider Quaid Tournier, father–in–law to fellow driver Logan Gorst, and older brother to former competitor Léo Tournier. Luke and his wife Michele have three children - Shalyn, Lane and Quaid - and two grandchildren. The Tournier’s make their home in Duck Lake, Saskatchewan.
