BARROWS - Any good act has a great encore and for A-Modified driver Troy Jordan, his encore has been a great one so far.

A former Midwest Modified points champion at North Central Speedway, Jordan walked away from the sport for a few years before returning late last year. Driving a Street Stock car, Jordan placed fifth both nights at the Mighty Axe Nationals.

During the off-season he found an A-Mod ride and he looks like he is back in his comfort zone on the track. Through the first five races of the season he has two feature wins including an impressive run Saturday night as he finished in front of Chuck Olson and Shawn Fletcher.

Running the last feature race of the night on a slick track that had already seen four makeup features from last week run along with the six regular features, Jordan was able to get out of traffic early and establish a cushion early.

"It is a challenge. It gets really slick and is almost like ice out there," Jordan said of running the last feature. "You kind of have to feather it through the corners and hit your marks every time or else you are going to be off in the looney tunes, but it's a challenge.

"If you can get out and away from traffic, you can find a good line and that is what I did. I found one that I liked and I maintained it."

Jordan was running comfortably out front when a caution flag came out with just two laps remaining. Jordan survived the restart although Chuck Olson made it a challenge as he pushed Jordan all the way through turn two on the final lap before Jordan pulled away for the win.

After Saturday's race, Jordan and Fletcher are tied for the top spot in the points chase. For Jordan, he is in a familiar spot that he walked away from before.

"We took some time off and I got remarried and had a couple of children," Jordan said. "I kind of got away from it, but then started to get the itch again. We came out last year with the Midwest Modified and a few races with the Street Stock but the A-Mod is where I wanted to be. We kept working and got a good deal getting into a good car."
