Ordway continued his dominance at Oswego Speedway Saturday night as he picked up his second win of the season at the lakeside oval. Ordway started eleventh, inherited the lead when leader Bob Goutermout crashed out of the race on lap 24. The win was Ordway's 26th career supermodified feature win at Oswego Speedway. A double header in the limiteds found Tony White and Shawn Walker winners with Bobby Newman and Joe Miller taking the twinbill in the super stocks. Bill Burd took home the Cup Lite honors.

Craig Rayvals and Brian Sweeney led the field down for the 45 lap race. Rayvals got the jump at the start of the race, as the field settled in behind. Tim Gareau and Dave Trytek used the inside lane to get through early race traffic, while Bob Goutermout, Tim Snyder and Mike Ordway used the outside groove to move forward.

Goutermout settled in on Rayvals back bumper in the early laps, with Gareau, Sweeney, Sitterly, Snyder, and Bob Bond in tow. Lap 3 saw Goutermout place the red 77 in the top spot, as he tried to put distance between himself and the rest of the pack.

He stopped watches at 17.66, as he built his lead. Fans began to keep an eye on the 61, as Ordway began to pick his way to the front. Yellow flew on lap 6, as Jerry Curran looped the 24 car in the fourth turn. This put Gareau on the deck of the 77 on the restart.

Mike Ordway began his furious charge to the front on this restart. He went to the outside of Bob Bond on the restart for seventh place. One half lap later, he breezed by the Sweeney 3 car for 6th. Lap 8 Ordway went to the inside of the Snyder 0 car on the front straightaway for fifth.

Back up front, Goutermout kept stopping watches in the 17.6's, as the 77 and 5 built a six car length lead over Rayvals and Sitterly. Sitterly moved to third one lap later, as it was time to go. Ordway followed him through, and now the scoreboard read 77-5-79-61. Consistent 17.5 laps kept the 77 in control, but the 79 and 61 were closing in.

Lap 17 saw Ordway make the move to third by Sitterly in the first turn. At the same time, Goutermout came into slower cars for the first time, which he cruised by on the outside with ease. At the halfway point of the race, Goutermout was ahead by three lengths, as Gareau was now under pressure from Ordway for second place. Gareau didn't give up the spot easy, as Ordway had to work for laps to get by. Further back in the pack, Joe Gosek was methodically picking his way forward from his 23rd starting spot. The 50 suffered a broken fuel pump in the heat race, and was relegated to running the consolation race.

Lap 24 saw the complexion of the race change with a yellow flag. Goutermout was coming up to lap the 24 of Curran. Curran, running the 77 hard, got sideways and spun in front of the 77, inflicting damage on the right front of the 77 car. Goutermout's lead was now gone, and Ordway was in control with 20 laps to go.

Once up front, Ordway was never seriously challenged. Fans attention then moved to Joe Gosek, as he continued to march through the field. Gosek had worked his way up to sixth during this caution flag period. On the restart, he worked by Bond for position. Then in one move, the 50 went by both the 0 and 79 cars. He had to go back behind the 79 s a debris caution came out on lap 25. Gosek repassed Sitterly on the restart, but he was losing ground.

Ordway was up front cruising at 17.32 laps, while Gareau, Gosek, Sitterly and Snyder settled into top five spots. Further back, Rayvals, Trytek and Page thrilled the crowd with a tight race for sixth position.

With 10 laps to go, Ordway had build up a 2.31 second lead, as it appeared he was on a Sunday cruise. The lead was up to 2.7 seconds, until the caution lights went on again. Eighth running Dave Trytek spun the 70 car out of the fourth turn. Gosek made a run by Gareau on the restart, but was 1.41 seconds behind the leader with laps running down. They both turned consistent 14.45 and 47 laps in the last few circuits, and Mike Ordway cruised ahead with a 1.87 second win over Joe Gosek. Tim Gareau was third, followed by Otto Sitterly and Tim Snyder.

"The car was running good tonight," Mike said after the win. "I couldn't do it without the crew. These guys make my job look easy. I had to work a little harder tonight. The car is running good now."
