1Behind the wheel of his Johnny Doan Plumbing No. 12 Late Model, Ashton Winger made the trek to Volusia Speedway Park (Barberville, Fla.) on Wednesday afternoon to kick off the 2021 season with the DIRTcar Sunshine Nationals. Drawing 38 World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series entries, Winger suffered a blown engine in hot laps, forcing him to hop behind the wheel of Mike Collins’ No. 3 Late Model for the remainder of the evening. Following an eighth place finish in his heat race, Ashton logged an 11th place outing in his B-Main. Earning a provisional into the opening night feature, Winger marched through the field 13 spots in the 40-lapper to register an 11th-place finish.

With a rainout on Friday evening allowing Ashton and his team more time to replace the motor in his No. 12 machine for Saturday night's contest, Winger followed up a ninth place finish in his heat with an eighth place outing in his B-Main. Relying on a provisional into the $10,000-to-win finale, Ashton got caught behind a wreck on lap 23 that brought a disappointing end to his weekend. (Rich LaBrier photo | Dirtman Photography)

The 20-year-old’s maiden voyage with the World of Outlaws Late Model Series was highlighted by his first-career win at Cedar Lake (Wisc.) Speedway on July 3, when he outdueled Brandon Sheppard for a $20,000. He continued to improve as the year wound down, returning to the podium again at Thunder Mountain (Pa.) Speedway in September with an impressive charge from 21st to third.

Winger drove the Franklin Enterprises No. 12 Total Fire Protection/ B&D Leasing/ Keyser Manufacturing/ Rocket Chassis/ Clements Racing Engine Super Late Model to a total of six Top-5’s, and 19 Top-10’s in 2020 and finished seventh in the tour’s overall championship standings.

“Our car was fast all year long, I just made too many mistakes at times. We picked up a lot around June and then we got that win at Cedar Lake, where I lost probably ten years of my life thanks to Sheppy [Brandon Sheppard]. I felt like we were in contention to win some other races, but we let some get away. This whole season and winning Rookie of the Year means a lot to me. I hope we can do this deal again next year.”
