Personal Information
Vern proved in 2016 that he is certainly one of chuckwagon racing’s very best. In just his second start on the WPCA Pro Tour, Vern captured his first WPCA show championship when he took the Ashley Richards Memorial Presented By Dakota Dunes Casino in Saskatoon. For the second consecutive year, he made the championship final heat at the Calgary Stampede GMC Rangeland Derby, and his horse "POWER" was named Champion Outriding Horse on the Calgary Stampede Equine Outfit of Excellence. Vern posted 22 top ten runs including 3 first place runs and 12 runs that also cracked the top five. Vern had top ten overall finishes in five shows, and in addition to the win at Saskatoon, a runner-up finish at Guy Weadick Days was his best of the year. Prior to joining the WPCA in 2016, Vern had a prosperous career on the Canadian Professional Chuckwagon Association (CPCA) circuit, where he was a four-time CPCA Champion Driver, was the CPCA's High Point Driver in 2012, won 11 CPCA show championships, and was the CPCA’s Most Improved Driver in 2004. Vern qualified for the championship dash for the CPCA Championship four consecutive year, and eight times in eleven years. Vern works as a carpenter in the off season and enjoys sleigh rides, fishing, hunting, driving his Percheron Team, and going to the rink with the kids. Vern and Lisa Bensmiller have seven children - Brett, Brendan, Cruise, Paynton, August, Sienna and Madelyn - and make their home in Dewberry, Alberta.
