LEE - Mike Ordway Jr. of Windham, Maine, won the ISMA Supermodified Ollie Silva Classic before the season's largest crowd at Lee USA Speedway Friday.

Ordway Jr., a past Lee Small-Block Supermodified champion, started on the pole in Clyde Booth's No. 61 and was never headed. There was only one caution flag in the 75-lap event.

Canadian Mark Sammut kept Ordway Jr. in sight, but was able to sustain a challenge for the lead. ISMA points leader Dan Bowes of Epping rallied late to finish third ahead of Kyle Edwards and Jon McKennedy.
