Ahnna Parkhurst Stepping Away from Racing
Ends Racing Tenure with Turkey 100 at Swainsboro Raceway on Nov. 25-27

EVANS, Ga. (10/25/21) – Ahnna Parkhurst is stepping away from the driver’s seat of her familiar No. 23 Late Model following November’s Turkey 100 at Swainsboro Raceway. The Georgia racer cited changing priorities in life for her decision.

“I got into my first go kart when I was 13. I’m now 21 years old, and I’ve decided to step away from racing,” Parkhurst shared. “My last race will be at Swainsboro (Ga.) Raceway during their Thanksgiving weekend event. As I think about the next chapter in my life, I’ve realized my priorities have changed. I’ve been so blessed with a tremendous amount of support over the years!”

Ahnna is quick to thank the dedication her family has given to her racing career over the past eight years.

“My racing career has been the priority for my family and I for the last 8 years. I would like to tell my sister Sophia, my stepmom Poppie, my Mom in heaven and my Dad, ‘Thank You’ for everything you have done for me, and I love you all. To my crew, Tyler and Steven, you’ve given me the best equipment and support any driver could ask for!”

Parkhurst is also extremely grateful for all of the mentors, who have helped her along the way.

“When I started racing, I had zero experience, but I didn’t know at the time I had the best mentors from day one. The McDowell’s (Sara, Shane, and Dale), Austin Dillon and Ryan Gifford. Their mentoring and support taught me the skills to win in Box Stock (Mini Outlaw), Intermediate (Mini Outlaw), 602 Crate Late Model, 604 Crate Late Model, Limited Late Model and in my first full year of Super Late Model racing with a second-place finish. Because of their help I’ve won races at nine different tracks in four different states (NC, GA,TN, AL) along the way.”

Last but not least, Ahnna thanks the fans and marketing partners, who have gotten her to this point.

“I especially want to say ‘Thank You’ to my fans, who have supported me at the tracks and followed me on social media! I have also been extremely fortunate to have the support of some amazing sponsors that allowed me to represent their brands, including: Richard Childress Racing, Morley Companies, Fields, Kevin Harvick Inc., Andy’s Frozen Custard, F&W Transportation, Hunt Brothers Pizza, Sparco, Aria, Klotz, Schoenfeld Headers, GW Performance, Allstar, Boydbilt, MPI, Racing Optics, Penske Racing Shocks, DirtCarLifts, Connor Signs, Keyser Manufacturing, FK Rod Ends, Dunnaway Racing Engines, Hoosier Tires by Brian, and Clements Racing Engines.

“In closing this chapter of my life, it’s been an amazing journey. I love the sport and especially the people. I will always be around racing, just in a different ‘SEAT’.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart!”

Ahnna competed over the weekend in the Trick-Or-Treat special at Modoc (S.C.) Raceway. She qualified and finished second in Crate Late Model action, while starting 10th and finishing eighth in the $7,500-to-win Super Late Model program.

Looking ahead, her final racing start is scheduled for November 25-27 at Swainsboro (Ga.) Raceway in the facility’s annual Turkey 100.

Ashton Winger Sweeps Senoia Raceway for $13,025 Weekend
Remains Perfect at Georgia Oval in 2021

HAMPTON, Ga. (10/25/21) – The grey dirt at Senoia Raceway has been especially kind to Ashton Winger in 2021. Over the weekend the Georgia oval was even more generous as Winger raced to back-to-back Southern All Star (SAS) wins at the facility in the Team 22 Inc. No. 89 Longhorn Race Car / Cornett Racing Engine Super Late Model.

In five starts in 2021 at Senoia Raceway, Winger is a perfect five-for-five.

"This place is badass. It's wide, you can race, it seems like 10 lanes on it. The main thing I do is I go in there, and I try to attack lapped traffic as hard as I can. And even if them guys cross me over, at least they know I'm there and, you know, they're good enough about letting me go, and I appreciate that," Winger said. "It really all goes to having a really maneuverable race car and having awesome people around me. I get to do the front part. As hard as it may be to believe, this is definitely the easy part. And everybody behind me who works their ass off on this thing, it don't go unnoticed and I'm super thankful for it."

On Friday evening, Ashton Winger visited Senoia Raceway (Senoia, Ga.), where he returned to the driver’s seat of the Team 22 Inc. No. 89 Late Model for the opening round of the doubleheader weekend with the Southern All Star Series.

Drawing 24 entries for the Billy Clanton Classic, Ashton’s third-fastest qualifying effort in time trials pinned him on the second row for the feature. Overtaking early pacesetter Austin Horton for the lead on the 18th circuit, Winger charged to his 11th win of the season, which came ahead of Horton, Shane Clanton, Brandon Overton, and Dalton Cook. He earned $3,025 for his winning performance.

For the Hence and Reba Pollard Memorial on Saturday evening, Winger outdueled polesitter Shane Clanton in his heat race to pick up the 10-lap victory. Whizzing past fellow front-row starter Brandon Overton for the lead on the fifth circuit of the feature, Ashton raced to his second win as many nights and 12th overall on the 2021 campaign. He took the checkers ahead of Overton, Ricky Weiss, Austin Horton, and Shane Clanton to claim $10,000.

The team will take this weekend off to get ready for the upcoming NGK NRK World Finals at The Dirt Track at Charlotte (Concord, N.C.) on November 5-7. The World of Outlaws (WoO) Morton Buildings Late Model Series weekend is headlined by a pair of $12,000-to-win programs.

Cory Hedgecock Records Career Payday at I-75 Raceway
Bags $15,000 for Iron-Man Tennessee Fall Nationals Victory

LOUDON, Tenn. (10/25/21) – Cory Hedgecock was awarded with the richest payday of his career after sweeping Saturday night’s Tennessee Fall Nationals at I-75 Raceway in his E-Z-GO No. 23 Green’s Recycling / I-75 Raceway / Black Diamond Race Car / Eagle Racing Engine Late Model.

The historic win for the Tennessee racer was worth $15,000.

“Wow, what a night for our team. I’m happy to run in front of them guys. I consider Chris (Ferguson) a national guy and I’m tickled to death to run in front of him,” Hedgecock said in Victory Lane. “Car was good, a little skatey on restarts. I struggled on the right-rear 1600 (compound tire) sometimes just because. But I know we’re really good through lapped traffic sometimes, and tonight we were. It was very maneuverable. I could enter in high and leave low. Whatever I needed to do I could make it work.

“Thanks to my family and my sponsors for making this possible. We started the season a little slow, but now we’re up to 12 wins, and that’s pretty awesome.”

On Saturday afternoon, Cory Hedgecock made the short trip to I-75 Raceway (Sweetwater, Tenn.) to compete with the Valvoline Iron-Man Southern Series in the inaugural Valvoline Tennessee Fall Nationals.

After topping the 28-car field in time trials, Hedgecock streaked to a heat race win, which positioned him second on the starting grid for the feature. Wrestling away the lead from polesitter Stacy Boles on the opening circuit, Cory led wire-to-wire in the 50-lapper to register his 12th win of the season. He earned an extra $3,000 for sweeping the program with fast time in qualifying, a heat race win, and the feature win, elevating his payday from $12,000 to $15,000, the richest of his career.

The team will be idle this weekend and are currently evaluating their remaining 2021 schedule. Once finalized the schedule will be posted at www.CoryHedgecock23.com .
