Personal Information
Fast becoming one of chuckwagon racing's elite drivers, 2013 saw John win his first show as chuckwagon driver taking the Saskatoon World Chuckwagon Races and his horse "WOODY" was named the Calgary Stampede Equine Outfit of Excellence Champion Left Wheeler. He posted 16 top ten runs which includes 3 day money runs, including his first at the Calgary Stampede, and 6 runs that placed inside the top five. He established a track record at Saskatoon, was a semi-finalist at the Ponoka Stampede and qualified for winner-take-all final at the Battle of the Rockies. John won the Herman Flad Memorial Award for the WPCA Most Improved Driver in 2011. John started his chuckwagon career in 2009 on the CPCA circuit before making the move to the WPCA in 2010. Prior to driving chuckwagons, John competed for over 20 years in Saddle Bronc Riding and Steer Wrestling, winning overall Saddle Bronc Championships in the Manitoba Rodeo Cowboys Association, the Lakeland Rodeo Association, and the Canadian Cowboys Association, and a year end All Around Championship in the Canadian Cowboys Association as well. Originally from Czar, Alberta, John's father Wordon Walters raced thoroughbred chuckwagons, chariots and pony wagons for many years starting in the late 1940's, and his brother Ken Walters is a current driver on the CPCA circuit. John is a rancher and is the owner of John Walters Fencing - a custom fencing business in the off season - and enjoys hockey, hunting and being with horses. John and his wife Bonnie have six children, nine grandchildren and make their home in Delburne, Alberta.
