Hampton, Georgia (04/22/19) – 19-year-old Ashton Winger achieved a career first on Saturday night.

The win was his first of the year and the first of his career with the storied, regional tour.
“Man, I always love racing at Whynot Motorsports Park, and after weather altered our original plans, we had a great night there on Saturday night,” Winger commented. “We got to the lead pretty early, and then this car was just a dream to drive. We got to see a lot of friends there as well, and I can’t thank Todd Pruitt and all of Billy Franklin’s crew enough for lending a helping hand on my car.
“I’ve got some awesome sponsors that allow me to do this, and I want to thank them all. These great supporters include Billy Franklin Enterprises, Crown Security, Johnny Doan Plumbing, Keyser Manufacturing, and Integra Shocks and Springs. I thank them all, and hopefully we can go make history again this Saturday at Eldora.”
