The chucks are back.

Day one of Battle of the Foothills in High River Thursday night got started with a bang.

Rae Croteau Jr. had the fastest time on the first night and leads overall.

The Calgary Stampede Rangeland Derby winner, Kris Molle, was second, just 8/100ths of a second back, followed by Chad Fike in third.

Jason Glass and Mark Sutherland were 10th and 11th respectively and Jordie Fike was 16th.

The excitement continues Friday and Saturday night at 7:00 p.m. and Sunday afternoon at 4:00 p.m..
