January 29, 2021 - Top-10 finish in fourth round of Winternationals at East Bay
1Monday night saw Ashton Winger return to action at East Bay Raceway Park (Tampa, Fla.) behind the wheel of the Ken Monahan-owned No. 311A Late Model entry for the 45th annual Wrisco Winternationals. In a stout field of 76 Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series (LOLMDS) entries, Winger posted a sixth place finish in his heat race, sending him into the B-Main for another shot at the opening night feature. Transferring the Top 2 into the show, Ashton was an early retiree from the 12-lapper on the sixth lap.

1For another $5,000-to-win preliminary feature on Tuesday afternoon, Ashton timed in 14th fastest in his qualifying group before placing fourth in his heat. Needing a second place finish or better in his B-Main to make the A-Main, Winger came one spot shy with a third-place outing.

On Wednesday evening, Winger fell two spots short of a transfer position in his heat race with a fifth-place finish. Rolling off third in his B-Main, Ashton was running in third when Mother Nature made an appearance and postponed the remainder of the program to Thursday evening. He ended up withdrawing from the remainder of the 10-lapper.

For the fourth round of the Wrisco Winternationals on Thursday, Ashton posted a fourth place finish in his heat, giving him one last shot at the feature with a B-Main appearance. Locking in the Top 2, Winger streaked to a 10-lap consolation victory, which positioned him 20th on the starting grid for the $7,000-to-win A-Main. Wheeling his way into the Top-10, Ashton passed 10 cars in the 40-lapper to register a 10th-place finish. (Mike Horne photo)

The following night, Winger was an early retiree from his heat on the sixth lap, sending him into the B-Main for one final shot at the $12,000-to-win A-Main. Slated to start near the tail, Ashton made the decision to scratch from the 10-lapper to save equipment.

January 16, 2021 - Winger salvages 11th place finish in season opener at Volusia
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)
