Barnes Breaks; Mike Ordway Jr. Wins Winged Super Challenge Finale & Series Championship

Story By: CAROL D. HAYNES / ISMA – OSWEGO, NY – Maine’s Mike Ordway Jr. capped the three-race Winged Super Challenge for ISMA and MSS supermodifieds with another big win Saturday night at Oswego Speedway in the 60-lap.

With the win – his second in the three-race Oswego series and fourth ISMA feature this season – Ordway claimed the inaugural Winged Super Challenge championship and $3,000 prize.

Trent Stephens was on top of the top ten in points for the series going into the night, but something broke in the front of his 19 super in warmups prior to qualifying, putting him out of contention for the championship. Mike Ordway Jr went on to record fast time in qualifying of the remaining 19 cars.

Sitting behind Stephens in the top 10 in points elegible for big bonus awards were Kyle Edwards, Michael Barnes, Otto Sitterly, Ordway Jr., Mike Lichty, Mike McVetta, Johnny Benson Jr, Dan Connors Jr and Russ Wood.

Heat wins went to Mark Sammut, Dan Connors Jr and Tyler Thompson.

The 60 lap main event was lined up by draw with Mark Sammut and Michael Barnes in the Shea 11 on the front row, with Tyler Thompson and Ordway in row two. Kyle Edwards ran into bad luck on lap 1 as his 11E pulled into the pits, coming back out to the tail. With Stephens and Edwards suffering bad luck early, Barnes was now in the catbirds seat leading the race and on top of the challenge points.

Barnes would hold onto that lead, fending off some strong challenges as the race flew by. On lap 33 a yellow flew for 44 of Ben Seitz who exited the race, leaving Barnes and Ordway Jr. up front on the restart. Barnes held his spot out front chased by Ordway, until a lap 50 when a yellow flew for the leader Barnes who slowed out front and headed pitside.

It was Ordway’s race to lose now with 10 to go. Otto Sitterly, Mike Lichty, Mark Sammut, and Tyler Thompson were among the challenges behind, but Ordway maintained his lead until the end. He collected a trophy for the win and after point calculations, he took home a second trophy for the Challenge Championship.
