This is lap #1 of the Oklahoma Drivers. The supermodifieds in the Oklahoma area were the premier division in the 60's and 70's. Toward the later 70's some of the tracks dropped the supers in favor of the late models. Tulsa, Oklahoma City and Lawton continued to feature the supers as there main racing division. They also ran other classes to. Enid once ran supers on a weekly basis, but dropped them in the early 70's, but continued with the NCRA Supermodified race in October.
