ONE FOR THE MONEY, ….AND FOUR TO GO ON THE HALF MILE OF HELL portrays a chuckwagon rig just turning past the second barrel of the figure 8 in the infield. The driver is slapping his reins at his horses and calling to get up to speed as they head out on the Half Mile of Hell to seek their fame and fortune.

Every five years, the Calgary Stampede invites artists from across North America to enter a sculptural competition with the goal to create the highly sought after and coveted rodeo & chuckwagon bronze trophies that event winners and honourees receive. "One for the Money, …And Four to Go on the Half Mile of Hell" was selected as the winning entry in the Chuckwagon Aggregate Award to be presented to the competitor with the best accumulated results over the 10 days of chuckwagon racing. This award will be presented beginning in 2018 and for the next 4 years. The Calgary Stampede will also keep one in its permanent collection.
