Delaware, Ontario - (August 18, 2018) – Mike Ordway Jr. and the Clyde Booth 61 team had had a particularly discouraging couple races, prior to the Ollie Silva Memorial at Lee USA Speedway on August 10, especially at the Sandusky Hy-Miler where Ordway was the defending race champion. But, they would not stay down too long as attested to by the fact that Mike dominated the 75-lapper at Lee taking the lead at the beginning, picking up a Shea Concrete $1000 halfway bonus along his way to a wire to wire victory. His victory at Delaware Speedway on Saturday was not a cookie-cutter of the Lee win, but more of his racing acumen coming to play as he worked his way up from ninth to the front on lap 68 to take this victory.
Oswego, N.Y. (August 13, 2018) - The ISMA contingent is starting a whirlwind couple weeks with shows at Lee USA which hosts the annual Ollie Silva Memorial race and then moves south to New London Waterford Speedbowl for their traditional Wings and Wheels. There will be little time after that to prepare for the final Delaware Speedway program and to the conclusion of the Lennox Memorial Bonus Point Fund which was announced earlier this season.
Lee, NH (August 10, 2018) – Mike Ordway Jr. took the Clyde Booth 61 out to the lead of the Ollie Silva Memorial at Lee USA Speedway Friday night and was really never at risk of losing it. Ordway led every lap, picked up $1000 halfway leader bonus sponsored by E.F. Shea concrete and flew to the finish after that. The large crowd on hand voiced their approval of the win by the “hometown” boy who ran a great race to claim the prize. When the announcer chided Mike a little about being a “Mainer”, Ordway's response was “It doesn't matter where I moved to, I'll always be from Fremont!.”
Sandusky, OH (July 28, 2018) – What was possibly the largest Hy-Miler 100 crowd in the Jaycox era at Sandusky Speedway, came to see a race that was anticipated to be a great one. Dave Shullick Jr., a second place finisher of Friday's Fast Forty, amidst some controversy, claimed his third win of the prestigious event, leading almost half the way after taking the point from Trent Stephens.
The story of the race might well have been the incredible run by Michael Barnes in the Vic Miller 11.
