Lorain, OH (June 25, 2016) – When Mike Ordway Sr. won the 1987 Thompson ISMA World Series event in the Clyde Booth 99, a ride he shared with Warren Coniam, Mike Ordway Jr. was just a twinkle in dad's eye as the saying goes. In mid-summer 1988, Ordway Sr., solo driver for Booth piloted the 99 car to a win at Sandusky and a sixth in ISMA points. Dad was on his way to an illustrious career. That successful year closed with the birth of Ordway Jr. who was born Dec. 18.
June 24, 2016 – Wellington, Ohio's Mike McVetta is becoming very familiar with the victory lane circle at Lorain County Speedway. In his last four visits there, he has won four times – three in his 22 supermodified (two ISMA and one MSA) and one in a Sauer sprint car coming just last Saturday. He certainly hopes the win streak continues. Standing by his yellow and red family-owned machine, Friday night, decked out with a $3000 winner's check, he was quite in awe of his achievement.
