The Salem, Indiana, native already has one night under her belt with the Jay Mounce and Gavin Stout owned team, coming at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55. Ashton will be back behind the wheel on May 5th at Sweet Spring Motorsports Complex (Sweet Springs, MO), and May 6th at Lucas Oil Speedway (Wheatland, MO).
2023 will be Thompson's first year racing National Midgets and after previously racing the lesser powered Kenyon Midgets, "Joining Mounce/Stout was a great decision and I’m excited to continue to work with them and see where things go. I know we are going to have some amazing partners coming on board with us this year and I am ready to showcase them the best I can. My goal for this year is to grow and learn as much as possible and then go after a championship next year. I am thankful for Jay allowing me to come to the team and give me the resources to grow as a driver."
Ashton has experince traveling around the country racing Legends, F4, and Stock Cars; she is ready to settle into the Midwest and race National Midgets at tracks close to home. "USAC's Indiana Midget Week will be a lot of fun, as well as the BC39 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway because the legacy that place holds, it just has a whole different vibe."
