Ashton Winger tops Iron-Man Series at TST, earns $10,000

Ashton Winger chauffeured the Big Frog Motorsports / M&W Transport No. 58 Dave’s Towing / Schaeffer’s Oil / XR1 Rocket Chassis Super Late Model to the $10,000 Valvoline Iron-Man Late Model Series win at Talladega Short Track on Saturday night.

The victory, which came in the annual Governor’s Cup, marked the first for Winger behind the wheel of the team’s familiar entry.

“Man that was an intense race. (Michael) Page made me work hard for it, but we got the job done. I just can’t say enough thanks to Augie (Burttram) and Mike (Rey) and everyone at Big Frog Motorsports for this opportunity. These guys are providing me with everything that I need to win, and it means a lot to me to get them to Victory Lane,” Winger said. “We’ve got a big weekend in the Northeast in front of us, and we’re geared up to chase more big checks.”

Saturday night found Ashton Winger and the Big Frog Motorsports team competing with the Valvoline Iron-Man Southern Late Models Series at Talladega Short Track (Eastaboga, Ala.) for the annual Governor’s Cup.

In a field of 38 cars, Winger followed up the second-fastest lap in his group with a heat win. After sliding ahead of early pacesetter Sam Seawright on lap 23 of the feature, Ashton turned back a hard-charging Michael Page late to capture his second overall win of the season and a $10,000 payday. The victory marked his first with Big Frog Motorsports.

He claimed his third series triumph ahead of Seawright, Austin Horton, Jason Hiett, and Todd Morrow.
