The National Championship Chuckwagon Races are held Thursday through Sunday every Labor Day Weekend at the o f Ranch in Clinton, Arkansas. An estimated one hundred fifty teams compete in five different divisions for the title of National Champion.

Six Ozark Mountain trail rides, beginning on Tuesday, are also included as part of the weekend’s festivities.

The National Championship winners in each division take home silver belt buckles and share in over $20,000 in prizes that includes saddles, jackets and “Chuckwagon Bucks” – prize money that can be spent at the Trade Show after the races.
