Northfield, OH --- Northfield Park’s leading driver, Ronnie Wrenn, Jr., drove seven winners on Monday (Sept. 16).
Wrenn’s Winners included T Red ($4.80) in race two, Parthenon ($2.60) in race three, Waterhouse ($3.40) in race four, Green Olives ($3.40) in race seven, Hallin ($6.40) in race eight, Thiswayorthehighwy ($2.60) in race 10 and My Boogie Shoes ($3.60) in race 11.
Monday’s victories increased Wrenn’s 2013 wins tally to 487, ranking him as the winningest driver in North America this year. Dave Palone (465), Corey Callahan (462), Tim Tetrick (461) and Bruce Aldrich, Jr. (423) complete the top five.
Wrenn has set his sights on winning the 2013 driving title.
“It would really be something to win a national title,” offered Wrenn. “The way things stand at this point of the year I would always have regret if I didn’t go after trying to win it.”
Wrenn has been driving a torrid schedule between Northfield Park, Raceway Park and Scioto Downs. However, since Raceway and Scioto have concluded their 2013 schedules, Wrenn is looking towards Colonial Downs and possibly The Meadows.
The 27-year-old Wrenn began driving in 2008 and has since garnered 1,098 career victories and in excess of $4 million in purse earnings.
“It is way too early to tell how things will end up this year. My lead is small and there are a lot of good drivers out there,” said Wrenn.
Although seeking the 2013 driving title will require a lot of work and travel Ronnie says he will enjoy the pursuit.
“I just like to win races. As unbelievable as this sounds, the purse really doesn’t matter to me. Whether it's a 150 per start or an Open, it just feels good to win and make people happy.”
