2020 National Driving Championship

 

With the events and closures as a result of COVID-19, including the announcement of racing stoppages across the country, Standardbred Canada will postpone the 2020 Regional Driving Championships and National Driving Championship, and reschedule at a later date.

Once racing resumes, SC and the host tracks will revisit dates and scheduling.

Past Winners

Past winners of the NDC title include Doug McNair (2018), Brandon Campbell (2016), Jody Jamieson (2014 & 2011), Brad Forward (2009), and Gilles Barrieau (2007).

The winner of the 2020 National Driving Championship will have the opportunity to represent Canada in the 2021 World Driving Championship.

Doug McNair competed in the 2019 WDC in Sweden along with defending WDC Champion and fellow Canadian, James MacDonald. MacDonald won the 2017 WDC hosted in Canada and represented the International Trotting Association.

World Driving Championship – Canada’s Champions

Canadian drivers have won the World Driving Championship on five occasions -- Herve Filion (1970), Sylvain Filion (1999), Jody Jamieson (2001, 2011), and James MacDonald (2017). MacDonald was the first Canadian driver to win on home soil.

General Information

Since 2007, Standardbred Canada has been using a new format to determine Canada's representative for the World Driving Championship.

The concept behind the National Driving Championship is to bring regional representatives together to compete in a one-day championship that will determine Canada's representative to the World Driving Championship.

Traditionally determined by a formula that included earnings, wins and UDRS rating, the Canadian rep will now have to beat out some of the country's finest drivers and earn the National Driving Championship title.

This format includes one-day regional championships where the top two drivers advance to the national championship.
