 Robbie Vernon


Ronnie Vernon, 30, currently drives the 2002 Dirt Works #G3 IMCA Open Wheel. He currently resides in Friendship, TN with his wife Penny of 8 years and their 4 month-old son Payton. His parents are Mr. & Mrs. Billy Vernon. He also has one brother named Jeffery Vernon and a sister named Jennifer Brown. He is currently a cotton farmer.

Ronnie’s sponsors are Agro Distributors in Friendship, Hastings Realty in Dyersburg, Eaton Grain in Friendship, Watson Roofing and Crane Service in Friendship, Buck Nash Construction in Friendship, Farmers Friendship Gin, and Griffin Graphics in Dyersburg. 

Ronnie got started in racing because of his cousin Danny Gwinn. Danny bought a mini stock years ago. He drove it in a few races but decided it wasn’t for him, so he let Ronnie try it. Ronnie has been racing ever since for a total of 9 years.

The number 3 on his car represents Dale Earnhardt, and the “G” is for Danny Gwinn who is the car owner. Ronnie sees himself racing a late model someday. He states he would really like to drive one, however for now, he will stay in the Open Wheel until that opportunity comes along.

Ronnie’s biggest influence in racing is his dad, Billy Vernon. His father use to race in the 1950’s. He credits Danny Gwinn with keeping him motivated and giving him the opportunity to drive his car. Ronnie says “If it wasn’t for Danny, I wouldn’t be able to race.” Danny sets up the car and pays all the bills.

The biggest career highlight for Ronnie was when he placed 14th in this region’s IMCA National Points in 1996. He also won 2 track championships at Dyersburg Speedway.

His scariest moment was at Dyersburg Speedway in 1995 when he totaled out his first Open Wheel car. He was involved in a collision and was hit 6 or 7 times in the door.

Ronnie’s favorite driver on dirt is Billy Moyer of the late models. His favorite driver on asphalt was the late Dale Earnhardt, but now, he likes Dale Earnhardt, Jr.

Ronnie would like to thank Chad Nash and Jim Ervin. They help work on his car and never ask for anything in return. He would also like to send a special thanks to his Dad and Danny Gwinn for their support.
