Ashton Winger Gets First-Career CCSDS Win in Cotton Pickin’ Finale
2023 Season Concludes with Super Bee Speedway Doubleheader on Oct. 21-22
COLUMBUS, Miss. (09/23/23) – Taking control on lap 23, Georgia’s Ashton Winger never looked back en route to his first-career COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS) Super Late Model Series victory on Saturday night.
His maiden trip to Victory Lane with the series came in the $12,000-to-win Cotton Pickin’ presented by Whelen Engineering finale at Magnolia Motor Speedway.
Winger overtook Cade Dillard for the lead shortly before the halfway mark.
“I actually think it was good that I didn’t break out in the lead,” Winger said in FloRacing Victory Lane. “I was able to kinda sit behind (Jeremy) Shaw there and I was able to kinda find a line that worked for me. I knew whenever I found what I did, especially down here leaving (turn) three, I moved my entry out (by) two car-lengths and just stayed where Cade (Dillard) was at. It’s always fun racing with him man, he’s hard to beat and he’s really really good. It’s really awesome to race with good guys like him and it’s cool to see David (Breazeale) have a good run.”
With 47 entries in attendance, Jeremy Shaw and Cade Dillard led the field to the green flag at Johnny Stokes’ 3/8-mile oval for the 60-lap finale. Dillard bolted to the lead as the race went green with Shaw and Winger in tow.
Winger briefly jumped ahead for the lead on the 15th circuit before Dillard retook control one lap later. Winger continued to bide his time ultimately working past Dillard for the top spot on the 23rd circuit to claim a lead that he would never relinquish.
Over the remainder of the event, Winger cruised away from the field to win by 3.641 seconds with Dillard, 13th-starting David Breazeale, 11th-starting Neil Baggett, and Wil Herrington completing the Top-5 finishers.
Billy Moyer Jr. ended the weekend with atop the standings as the Midwest Sheet Metal Marked Man with Kyle Beard 52 points back in second and B.J. Robinson 59 markers back from the lead in third.
The COMP Cams Super Dirt Series now looks ahead to a huge season finale weekend on Oct. 21-22 at Super Bee Speedway (Chatham, La.). The Spooky 50 festivities include a $5,000-to-win program on Friday and a $10,000-to-win slate on Saturday.
