Keep your eyes peeled for High River's Jason Glass and the checkered wagon at the Century Downs World Finals this week.

The five-day World Professional Chuckwagon Associations Championships runs tonight, Wednesday Aug. 23, through the Dash for Cash finals on Sunday.

Glass has had a tremendous season but has yet to win a title this year and sits in 3rd overall in points.

Glass is looking to win his fifth World Title, having won in 2000, 2008, 2009 and 2012.

Calgary's Chanse Vigen and Jamie Laboucane are tied for first and will be a big hurdle for Glass to overcome.

The twelve finalists are Chanse Vigen, Jamie Laboucane, Jason Glass, Evan Salmond, Chad Fike, Layne MacGillivray, Obrey Motowylo, Rae Croteau Jr., Wade Salmond, Kris Molle, Kurt Bensmiller and Ross Knight.

Only the top 12 wagons compete for the title and for the $75,000 Dash for Cash.

The top four wagons after the four-day playoff round will move on to the $75,000 Dash for Cash on Sunday.

The racing runs Wednesday through Sunday at Century Downs Racetrack and Casino, just on the north outskirts of Calgary.
