Tullyroan Oval stages what is arguable its biggest meeting ever this weekend, September 22nd/23rd, when the prestigious Superstox Championship of the World headlines a Speedweekend which will also see the coveted National Hot Rods British Championship up for grabs. The event comes exactly 50 years since the opening stock car meeting at Shamrock Park in Portadown, and the anniversary will be celebrated in style during the weekend.

The Superstox World Championship title is the oldest and most sought after in the sport of oval racing, dating right back to 1961. All the current stars of the formula will be present at Tullyroan to race for the 2018 championship, sponsored by Mk2 Escort Shells & Spares and Hoosier Racing Tyres.
Heading the entry is defending champion Barry Stephen from Elgin in Scotland, who took the gold roof at last year’s encounter in Ipswich. He has already visiting Tullyroan this season for some practice and will be keen to hang onto the crown.
Fellow Scot Stuart Gilchrist from Lanarkshire is the current European and Scottish Champion and has also tasted victory in the World final in the past, whilst the English Challenge is led by former multi World title holder and current British Champion Jason Cooper from Norfolk.
Current National Champion Nick Roots from Surrey and English Champion Randall Lynn from Spalding will be others chasing the World title, whilst fellow Lincolnshire driver Jordan Aylward is the current Scottish Open Champion and he won the 2017 European title at Tullyroan Oval twelve months ago.
The local challenge will be led by Portadown’s Lee Davison who has carded some excellent results in 2018, both and home and on the mainland, whilst former Irish Champion Kyle Beattie from Aughnacloy is another who is more than capable of grabbing a top finish. Portadown’s Stephen Stewart, Cloughmill’s racer Sean Mark and Londonderry’s Gregg Hyndman will be others hoping to grab the coveted title. A full field of over 30 of the sport’s best will take to the track for what promises to be an action packed event.

The DRS Steelbuildings sponsored British Championship for the National Hot Rods will be defended by local ace John Christie, who took the title in stylish fashion a year ago. Portadown’s Glenn Bell is the current Ulster Champion and the former British Champion is on fine form at present, with Northern Ireland Champion Adam Hylands from the Birches also sure to be another major contender.
Dungannon duo Derek and Keith Martin are more than capable of taking the title, whilst former World Champion Adam Maxwell from Crumlin and Ahoghill’s Shane Murray both sure to be there or thereabouts. Fomer multiple British Champion Gary Woolsey from Portadpwn, Broughshane’s Jaimie McCurdy and Kells racer Carl Sloan will also be on the grid challenging for honours.
The visiting entry is led by current World, National and English Champion Billy Wood from Hampshire and he will be keen to use his previous Tullyroan experience to mount a serious challenge for another title. European Champion Shane Bland from the Midlands will be keen to put on a show and get amongst the premier places, whilst Sussex star Kym Weaver comes to Ulster in top form on the English circuits. Chris Crane and Bradley Dynes will be amongst the other cross channel challengers.

The support events are topped by the Classic Hot Rods Irish Open Championship and Jim Purdie Memorial Trophy, with over 20 cars from the bygone eras booked in to appear. Local star Clive Richardson will be a favourite in his Mk2 Escort, with English stars Hughie Weaver, Gary Goodswen, Gavin Taber, Graham Boyd and Ryan Polley sure to thrill the local fans. National Champion Kenny Purdie and Keith Chesher lead the Scottish challenge.

Over the weekend the Stock Rods (featuring a number of visiting drivers), Lightning Rods and 2.0 Hot Rods will also be in action, whilst the local racing fraternity will celebrate 50 years of Ulster oval racing with a fantastic display of old photographs and racing memorabilia.

Racing commences at Tullyroan Oval at 4.30pm on Saturday, with Sunday’s action getting underway at 1pm.

London’s Ian Beaumont was the big winner at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday evening as the World Championship was crowned 1300 Stock Cars Irish Open Champion after an action packed night’s racing. Another World Champion in victory lane was Ballymoney’s Steven Bolton who won the Unlimited National Bangers Nutshaker title, whilst the 2.0 Hot Rods Hoosier Tyres Challenge Series fell to Portadown’s European Champion Adam Hylands. Other feature race wins at the meeting, sponsored by Greers Volvo and Ray McGrath Transport, were Dan Shannon from a huge field of Stock Rods, and another World Champion, Gordy McKee, in the Lightning Rods.

Visitors from England and Scotland joined the locals for the 1300 Stock Cars Irish Open Championship, and as expected there was action aplenty throughout the evening. England’s Ben White hit the front in the opening heat, before losing out to fellow countryman Curtis Tebbenham who went on to take the victory over Ryan Stewart. Jonny Patterson took a huge knock on the home straight during that one, whilst it was Tebbenham who was involved in a huge crash in heat two. Local form man Robbie Wright stormed home in that one with his brother Davy and Stewart filling the places.
Stewart and Davy Wright occupied the front row for the Irish Open Final, with World Champion Ian Beaumont lining up ominously on row two alongside Scotland’s Andrew Mathieson. After the heavy opening exchanges it was Robbie Wright who hit the front before being turned aside by Beaumont who went ahead. Stewart and Mathieson were in close proximity but Beaumont just managed to edge clear to take a very polished victory indeed. Mathieson nipped past Stewart with one to go, but Ryan came back hard into the final bend to snatch back second spot with the Scotsman having to make do with third.

Adam Maxwell, World Champion Steven Bolton and local Points Champion Leonard Dunn disputed the early lead in the Unlimited National Bangers Nutshaker 2018 event, with a number of the others getting involved in some hard hitting action on the Tullyroan Bend. Bolton got the better of the others to take the win ahead of Dunn and Rodney Herron at the chequered flag. Maxwell then took the win in the Allcomers race despite Kieran McIvor’s best efforts to stop him, with Dunn and Bolton the placemen this time.
The Stephen Bannon Memorial Destruction Derby saw a huge wrecking train initiated by Jonny Murdock and Jake Neill. Willy Ogilby and the rest joined in too, with the last man in Dunn being declared the winner.

The 2.0 Hot Rods contested two more graded heats before the Grand Final of the Hoosier Racing Tires Challenge Series which has been running throughout the season. Brian Cherry led many of the opening laps of the first heat, before losing out to a flying Jason Devlin who was back in harness for the first time in a couple of months. Mark Madill and European Champion Adam Hylands chased him home. Allen Cherry raced to a clear win in the second heat ahead of Madill and British Champion Stuart Cochrane.
Aggregate points from across the series saw Hylands and Cochrane share the front row for the Hoosier Grand Final, with Hylands quickly edging out an advantage up front. Despite Cochrane’s best efforts, it was Hylands who took the series win with Stuart having to make do with second ahead of Allen Cherry. All three received new Hoosier tyres courtesy of the series sponsors.

A fantastic 28 car turn out of Stock Rods included welcome Scottish visitor Stewart Patterson and season debuts for Stephen McCready, Rick Purdy, Del McLaughlin, William Taggart and Colin McNiece. On the very packed raceway trouble hit early in heat one as Sam Wilson was spun by Ryan Murphy which earned the latter a disqualification. A number of cars collected the spinning Wilson, and amongst them was a very unlucky Purdy who collected damage as did Mick Rodgers and Jonny Gillespie. At the resumption Samuel Montgomery held off a spirited Lee Wylie to take the win with Dan Shannon in third. Evan Monaghan led heat two early on, and it turned out to be a cracking race. Taggart went ahead with outside pass on Monaghan, only to hit trouble and retire. That handed the lead and the win to the returning Colin McNiece, who finished well clear of Montgomery and Monaghan as the star men had their work cut out on the busy circuit. It really was exceptional racing with 24 cars packed inside less than half a lap at one stage.
Johnny McCloy and then Del McLaughlin had turns out front in the final, before Shannon powered through to the lead. The current ProStocks British Champion is perhaps better than his current yellow grading in a Stock Rod suggests, and he simply pulled further and further clear out front. McNiece drove a great race to second, with another great drive from star grader Shane McMillan netted him third ahead of Micky McFall and McCready. It was an excellent night of Stock Rod racing which bodes very well for the future, with the class really booming at present.

Before the opening Lightning Rods heat Portadown’s Jordan Rochford paraded the European Championship trophy which he had won the previous weekend at Hednesford in England. On a track made difficult by a brief shower, Rochford then drove a superb race to take the first win of the night having started last car on the grid. Irish Champion Nigel Jackson took second ahead of long time leader James McKinney. Recent newcomer McKinney underlined his potential with a great victory in heat two, leading all the way to take his first ever win ahead of Dylan and Adam McCann.
Ronan McNally led the way for over half distance in the final, with McKinney challenging initially before he was spun aside which would later earn Dylan McCann a disqualification. The man on a real charge though was World Champion Gordy McKee, who powered past McNally to take up the running. Sensationally though Gordy hit trouble with just one lap to go! Anyone who thought he was showboating by slowing down around the final lap quickly realised he was in big trouble as plumes of smoke came from his car, but he was just about able to coast over the line to take the silverware with a blown engine. Rochford and Jackson completed the top three.

Constant drizzle during the meeting didn’t deter the drivers from providing some excellent racing at Aghadowey Oval on Saturday evening. The headline event was the Irish Teams Championship for the Rookie Bangers which fell the way of Dublin based Team Sour A after three consistent points scoring races, with their Team Sour B ace Matthew McKinstry taking a heat and final double. Lurgan’s Graham Meek was victorious in the King of Aghadowey for the Junior Productions, whilst the same title went the way of Coleraine’s Adam White in the ProStocks. Other final wins at the JP Joinery and Building Contractor sponsored meeting fell the way of Conor Hughes from Antrim in the 2.0 Hot Rods and Banbridge driver Jonny Teggart in the Thunder Rods.

An excellent field of Rookie Bangers took to the circuit for their first ever Irish Teams Championship, with action all around the slippery raceway from the first green flag. Matthew McKinstry quickly hit the front in the opener to race clear for a fine win over Paul O’Connor and Ger O’Beirne. There were spinners and crunches galore, with a repeat in the second heat which saw Conor Finegan from Batman Spinners A take the victory. There were a couple of stoppages in this one, the first for a huge crash between Jack Murray and O’Connor, and another for a loose wheel on the circuit. Josh McKinstry came through for second ahead of Eugene Cadden.
There was trouble for Josh McKinstry at the start of the final as he had a huge coming together with the wall, before early leader Cadden lost a wheel to bring about a second stoppage. At the resumption Matthew McKinstry stamped his authority all over the race, racing clear and lapping the whole field on his way to a dominant victory over O’Beirne and David Mooney. Once the points had been calculated Team Sour A of O’Connor, Deano McGrath and O’Beirne were crowned Irish Teams Champions ahead of Batman Spinners A and Team Chancers.

The young aces of the Junior Productions were contesting the King of Aghadowey title, with the opening heat seeing a clear win for Graham Meek. A huge battle for second ended in tears, with Drew McKeown in the wall and Adam McFall excluded for his part in the mess. Sam McNiece and Callum Magill completed the top three. McFall bounced back in some style to win the second heat ahead of Matthew Nicholl and James Stewart.
In the final Meek led Nicholl early on, with McFall driving a great race from down the grid to eventually arrive on the tail of leader Meek. Adam tried every trick in the book to get past, but when he did he caught the eye of the Stewards as he made contact with Meek in doing so. McFall took the chequered flag but was docked two places for his misdemeanour, handing the King of Aghadowey crown to a delighted Meek. Nicholl inherited second ahead of the demoted McFall with Magill and Aaron Ward next up.

Once again the Thunder Rods produced a very healthy field, with newcomer Jonny Teggart leading them away from the novice grade. A mid race caution period wiped out his early lead, but he held on to take the win on his debut despite the efforts of placemen Joshua McMullan and Johnny Pollock. Teggart again led heat two early on, but he lost out with five laps to go to meeting sponsor Pollock, who went on to record a very pleasing win over Lee McCloy and Davy Gurney.
The final saw Teggart break free out front, this time with McMullan chasing hard as a huge battle developed for third. McMullan challenged Teggart hard late on for the win, getting alongside and just losing out by a matter of inches on the run to the flag. Teggart was great value for his heat and final double which earns him a rise in grade for the next meeting, with David Wilson driving a creditable race on the outside line to snatch third behind McMullan, with Pollock in fourth.

Thomas Morrison led the opening exchanges of the opening 2.0 Hot Rods heat before losing out to long distance traveller Pat Casey, but it was British Champion Stuart Cochrane who smartly found the outside groove to race past to the victory. Ryan McClure and Conor Hughes filled the top three after Gary Wilson was docked from second for contact. Brian Cherry led heat two until half distance, before Wilson found a way past to record the win in some style ahead of Cochrane and McClure.
Cherry and Casey disputed the lead in the final, before Casey edged clear with Conor Hughes chasing hard. Grip was at a premium as the drivers scrabbled for grip on the wet surface, with Hughes notably getting very sideways on a number of occasions as he looked for a way past the leader. The former BriSCA F2 superstar eventually hit the front, and pulled clear to record his first feature race win in the 2.0 Hot Rods after a fine drive. Casey was great value as he held on for second ahead of Wilson and Cochrane.

Coleraine’s Adam White went through the programme unbeaten as he raced to both heats and the King of Aghadowey final win in the ProStocks. In the opener it took a last bend hit on long time leader Dylan Booth for Adam to hit the front, whilst heat two was a much less complicated affair for White as he led home British and Irish Champion Dan Shannon.
The closed grid final brought the others right onto White’s tail from the first green flag, but the former British Champion was on fine form as he edged clear once again to land the King of Aghadowey title ahead of Steven Haugh and Shannon.
