March 2, 2019 - Winger Bags Runner-up Finish in Bubba Army Winternationals Finale at BRP
1Ashton Winger mounted a great charge in Saturday night’s Chevrolet World Championship finale at Bubba Raceway Park. Behind the wheel of his Johnny Doan Plumbing #12 Franklin Enterprises/ The Realty Queen & Team/ XR1 Rocket Chassis Late Model, Winger advanced from the 17th-starting position to a runner-up finish in the finale.

“I’ve been to Ocala twice now, and we’ve struggled every time we’ve hit the track, but we threw something at it before the feature on Saturday night and it finally worked real well,” Winger said after his impressive charge. “Hats off to Kyle Bronson because this is a tough place, and he’s clearly got it figured out. A big thanks goes out to this awesome team that I’ve got. It’s just a dream to get to go up and down the highway and race every weekend.”

After starting his weekend one night earlier by retiring early from the $2,000-to-win feature to a 19th-place finish, Ashton looked for better luck in Saturday night’s $10,000-to-win, Chevrolet Performance World Championship finale.

With 31 entries in action for the Durrence Layne Dirt Late Model Series sanctioned event, Winger earned the 17th-starting spot for the feature via preliminary action. As the race went green at the tricky, 3/8-mile oval he began slowly working his way through the field. By the late stages of the event Ashton climbed into the second spot and set his sights on race leader, Kyle Bronson. Winger briefly challenged Bronson for the top spot before the Florida native ultimately slipped away in lapped traffic. (Mitchell Jenkins photo)

Ashton went on to finish second with Wil Herrington, Joseph Joiner and Clay Harris completing the Top-5 finishers.
