The Jordan Page Nationals is an historic race for Southern Oklahoma Speedway, and drivers turn out and all want to win this special event.

Virgil Page built the original track which was called Lake Country Speedway, and then John Webb bought the track seven years ago and built it into to the track we know now. The Jordan Page Nationals was started after Virgil’s daughter, Jordan, was on her way to a football game and was killed in a car accident 14 years ago. She was a special person and well known by the drivers and fans at the Ardmore, Okla., speedway.

Kyle Robinson set the pace for the start of the USRA Modified main event C.A. Nix was on the front row outside after the top eight qualifiers redrew for position on the front straight-away during intermission. On the start, Nix took the lead and pulled away. Robinson followed and the two were setting a fast pace for the rest of the field.

The first caution came out for Buddy Honaker, and on the restart Nix grabbed the top groove where the moisture had created a fast cushion. Robinson was challenged by Mickey Lassiter, who took the top so Robinson tried the bottom lane and for several laps Lassiter could pull slightly ahead coming off turn two and down the back straight-away, but coming into turns three and four Robinson would pull back ahead.

Meanwhile, Nix was increasing his now four-car-length lead when the caution returned for a multi-car wreck in turn two.

On the restart, Nix wasted no time as he led the field to the top side of the track’s cushion, all stacked bumper to bumper, Nix started the race in the middle of turn three, wide open around the top, and he did not lift until he saw the checkered flag.

The rest of the field followed his lead and Robinson finished second, with Bo Day third, Kale Westover fourth and Lassiter fifth. Kenny Gaddis was sixth.

Nix has been on a roll here lately at the Southern Oklahoma Speedway, winning three races at the end of the season but he was extremely happy to win this particular race.
