In a field of 45 Late Models, Winger’s ninth-place finish in his heat race pinned him on the ninth row for the $5,000-to-win preliminary feature. Losing two spots in the 30-lap affair, Ashton logged a 21st-place outing.
On Saturday, Ashton was forced to take a provisional into the $50,000-to-win Mountain Moonshine Classic after missing a transfer spot in his heat and B-Main. Rolling off 25th, Winger inched forward one spot to finish 24th.
Ashton is currently seventh in the latest LOLMDS point standings.Back to News
