The win marked his second Southern All Star triumph of 2019, and his sixth overall triumph.

“We’ve been so good, and this racecar has been so incredible. I felt like on the restarts, the longer they’d go, the better I’d go,” Winger said. “I honestly feel like right now we are one of the best 10-15 racecars in the country. When we don’t win, it’s nobody’s fault other than mine. It’s an honor to win this race that honors the Head family. They are great folks and true legends.”

1On Saturday evening Ashton Winger returned to action with the Southern All Star Dirt Late Model Series with the Michael Head Jr. Memorial at Senoia Raceway (Senoia, Georgia). The event drew 25 entries and Winger laid down the fastest lap in time trials, which positioned him on the pole for the A-Main.

Leading flag-to-flag, Ashton cruised to his sixth win of the season. Michael Page, Dalton Cook, David Breazeale, and Zach Leonhardi completed the Top-5 finishers. Winger earned a $5,454 payday for his dominant performance.

The triumph came behind the wheel of his Johnny Doan Plumbing No. 12 E-Z-Go/ Keyser Manufacturing/ XR1 Rocket Chassis/ Clements Racing Engine Super Late Model and marked his fifth win of 2019.

“We came here last month in Billy Franklin’s car and almost got the win. Tonight, I felt like we were pretty good the whole time,” Winger commented. “I was bottled up and I didn’t do what I needed to do on the initial start. Then whenever [Josh] Putnam gave me the outside on the restart I just figured I’d try to get the best run I could down the straightaway and then wherever [Dane] Dacus didn’t go, I was gonna go. It worked out. Sometimes it doesn’t and we’re glad it did.”

1Saturday night saw Ashton Winger in action at Thunderhill Raceway Park (Summertown, Tennessee), where he was competing in a field of 22 Southern All Star (SAS) Series entries for the King of the Hill 40.

Recording the second-fastest lap in qualifications behind Brad Skinner, Winger earned the second-starting position for the A-Main. Early in the race Ashton slipped back to as far as fourth before overtaking race-leader Dane Dacus following an early-race restart. Once out front Ashton soared to his fifth win of the season, which came over over Dacus, Josh Putnam, David Breazeale, and Riley Hickman. He earned a $4,000 payday for his first-career SAS victory.
