Biography

The Bolin name. If you are a wagon fan, you’ve heard it. If you just watch the races occasionally, you’ve heard it. It’s a name synonymous with chuckwagon racing and rich with history in this sport. Ron has been involved with horses all his life and in a wagon box since he could barely walk. With well over40 years of driving experience, in many clubs, he is one of the most formidable opponents you will find on the track. He is a confident, assertive driver that keeps others on their toes and the races exciting to watch. He is very competitive and knows how to win. He has numerous wins to name, too many to list, and very likely will continue to be a winner. Ron typically races 2 wagons on the circuit. He has been with the club since it started and always places in the top with both wagons.

He was mentored by his father, the late Ivor “Sonny” Bolin, and is cheered on at every show by his wife Sherry and his daughters Sharlee, Jayme, and Raylee. His brother, Jack Bolin is takes an active role on the circuit, helping and holding for Ron.

Ron currently holds a position as a Director with the WCA.

Ron comes from Rio Grande, Alberta, where he farms, drives truck, and makes harnesses in his spare time. One of our most colorful characters, he has many entertaining chuckwagon stories to tell over a cup of coffee and always welcomes a visitor at his camp.
