Ashton Winger wins DLDLMS thriller at Whynot Motorsports Park

By Ben Shelton (Hampton, GA) -- Ashton Winger charged back to the lead on a late-race restart on his way to winning Saturday night’s Durrence Layne Dirt Late Model Series (DLDLMS) event at Whynot Motorsports Park. The victory came aboard Jimmy Waldrop’s No. 9 Winsupply/ Johnny Doan Plumbing Late Model.

The victory in the Coca-Cola Salute to the Navy 50 was his second of 2019 and was worth $2,500

“Whynot has got to be one of my favorite race tracks because I have two wins this season, and they both came there,” Winger said. “I’ve got to thank Jimmy Waldrop for towing all of the way up here from Tampa, Florida and letting me drive this car. I drove it earlier this year down in Florida, and it’s a fine handling race car.

“We had a good chance to win on Sunday night at Magnolia Motor Speedway, but I messed up and spun out while battling for the lead. It was an all-or-nothing move by me for the win. Wil Herrington did a great job there, and I congratulate him on that win.”

Saturday night’s DLDLMS event drew 29 entries to Rodney Wing’s Whynot Motorsports Park. Ashton started fifth on the grid for the 50-lap feature. As the finale went green Winger began working his way forward. On lap 30, he shot to the lead and paced the field until Justin McRee slipped past to lead a lap. The 38th circuit found Winger back out front, and he would hold the point until lap 46 when Casey Haney took command.

Shortly after Haney took command, the red flag flew for an accident. On the ensuing restart, Winger used the high groove to take back the lead. He led the final circuits to claim the $2,500 victory.

Casey Haney, Evan Ellis, Randy Boyd and Jake Knowles completed the Top-5 finishers.

Sunday evening took Winger to Johnny Stokes’ Magnolia Motor Speedway for a $2,000-to-win DLDLMS program. Thirty-five competitors entered the event, and for the second-straight night, Ashton earned the fifth-starting spot for the feature.

Ashton staged a late-race charge on race leader, Wil Herrington. Ashton threw a slider with two laps to go that resulted in the pair making contact. Winger spun from the contact, ending his chance at the win. He was credited with an 18th-place finish.

The upcoming weekend will have Ashton returning to his familiar No. 12 with a Friday night visit to Cochran Motor Speedway (Cochran, Georgia) for the $10,000-to-win, World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series event.
