With the 124-car field divided into two groups for a pair of $12,000-to-win preliminary features, Ashton edged his way into the prelim with an eighth-to-fourth run in his heat race. Clawing forward one spot in the 25-lap affair, Winger recorded a 13th-place finish.
Later Thursday night for heat races leading up to the Eldora Million, Winger’s seventh-place finish in his heat race relegated him into the B-Main for another shot at the $1,002,022-to-win A-Main. Needing to place second or better, Ashton fell short with an eighth-place outing.
On Friday as the 28th annual Dirt Late Model Dream got underway with a pair of prelims, Ashton followed up the 13th-fastest time in his 57-car group with a third-place finish in his heat race. With $12,000 on the line in the feature, Winger faded back to an 18th-place outing.
Starting on the third row of his heat on Saturday afternoon, Winger recorded a sixth-place finish, giving him one last shot at the $128,000-to-win Dirt Late Model Dream with a B-Main appearance. Needing to place second or better, Ashton logged a seventh-place finish.
