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.

The large crowd on hand voiced their approval of the win by the “hometown” boy who ran a great race to claim the prize.

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.
