There's a five formula bill of top class oval racing at Tullyroan Oval this Saturday evening, May 25th, from 6.30pm. In action will be the 2.0 Hot Rods, Stock Rods, Lightning Rod, Ninja Karts and 1300 Stock Cars.

The 2.0 Hot Rods contest their Tullyroan Challenge Cup, and with the reverse grid system in operation it should see the star men to the fore. Adam Best, Stephen Emerson, Mervyn Emerson, Allen Cherry and Wayne Woolsey will be ones to watch, and the meeting is also the final round for qualification for the upcoming World Championship at Ipswich. Brian Cherry scored a heat and final double last week at Aghadowey and will be another to keep an eye on, as well as Gary Wilson who won the Tipperary Challenge Cup last weekend.

The opening round of the Stock Rods Butler Motorsport Challenge Series see a new tyre up for grabs for what should be another well subscribed entry of well into the high twenties. National & Irish Champion Curtis Greer, British Champion Shane McMillan, newly crowned Southern Irish Open Champion Derek McMillan. Stevie McNiece and Stephen McCready will be ones to watch, as well as Jonny Cardwell who won the Irish Open Championship at Tullyroan over Easter.

The all action 1300 Stock Cars have their first Tullyroan outing of the year, so expect the sparks to fly in the opening round of the Ryan Wright Signs Iron Man Series. Irish Champion Willie Stewart, his brother Ryan Stewart, Nicky Lowry, Josh McKinstry and Calvin Blake will be those to watch as the big bumpers are put to good use. The young stars in the Ninja Karts will be contesting their Tullyroan Challenge Cup, with king of the local scene Max Hobson and Irish Champion Lacey Bevan ones to watch. Leyton Hughes had a heat and final double last time out and will be looking to go well, as will Lauren Berry, Matthew Weir and Rhea McConkey.

Completing the line up in the Dungannon Hot Tub Hire sponsored event are the Lightning Rods, which will feature European Champion Jordan Rochford who last weekend won the Southern Irish Open at Tipperary. Irish Champion Nigel Jackson plus recent final winner Tim Hazlett will be others to watch.

Dungannon’s Derek Martin was on top form at Aghadowey Oval on Friday evening, taking a polished heat and final double in Round 13 of the Simpson Race Exhausts World Series NI. It was a night of doubles, with the McKnight Motors of Coagh sponsored meetings also seeing braces of wins for Cookstown’s Brian Cherry in the 2.0 Hot Rods, Loughgall’s Jordan McCann in the Stock Rods and Bushmills’ Dylan Booth in the Thunder Rods. The race fans also enjoyed a breathtaking display during the meeting from the Wild Geese Skydive Team.

The stakes were high as Simpson Race Exhausts World Series NI for the National Hot Rods reached the penultimate round, with the drama commencing during practice as series favourite Adam Hylands suffered terminal engine issues which ended his night. Kenny McCann and Adam Heatrick had spells out front in the opening heat, before Broughshane’s Jaimie McCurdy powered through to take the win over Keith Martin and Derek Martin. McCurdy and Gary Woolsey had a tough scrap for the premier spot in heat two, before Derek Martin arrived on the scene to swoop past to a thrilling win over Woolsey and Keith Martin.
McCurdy had a great launch off the line in the final from the outside of the front row, but polesitter Derek Martin held firm to hold him off into turn one. Derek then got his head down and pulled clear out front, reeling off the laps to take a well deserved victory. He even survived a mid race caution period but pulled clear once again, taking the flag over his uncle Keith. Glenn Bell had a thrilling finish on the outside line to snatch third on the road, but he lost out to a penalty for jumping the restart. That handed John Christie third spot which vaults him to the lead of the World Series points chart.

Another healthy showing of 2.0 Hot Rods produced some exciting action, with 16 year old Drew McKeown withstanding some huge pressure from behind to take the opening heat victory. Ryan McClure, Stephen Emerson and Adam Best chased him over the line in a blanket finish. Dean McFarland led heat two before losing out to Brian Cherry, with Dean then rashly turned aside by McClure which earned him a disqualification. Cherry raced home for a great win ahead of Thomas Dilly and McKeown.
The final was another Cherry benefit, as Brian really got his 2019 season up and running by taking a commanding win which elevates him up the gradings for the next meeting. McKeown once again impressed in second ahead of Conor Hughes and Emerson.

The huge entries in the Stock Rods continued, with 26 cars producing wheel to wheel racing all evening. Del McLaughlin led the opener away and stayed out front until challenged by Philip Wilson. Wilson eventually managed to get past and make the move stick, taking the flag ahead of Jordan McCann and Johnny Gillespie. Heat two was another toughly fought encounter at the head of the field, with Johnny McCloy this time taking a very impressive win over McCann and Gary Butler.
Former ProStocks star McCann quickly went ahead in the final from pole position, with Butler soon moving through to track his every move. There was drama late on as they encountered some awkward backmarking traffic, with McCann getting himself involved with Stuart Agnew. Jordan reeled off the remaining laps to take the win over Butler and former World Champion Marc Morrell, even surviving a post race investigation into his altercation with the backmarkers.

Completing the programme were the Thunder Rods, which saw Dylan Booth race to a fine heat one win over Andy McLeister and Jerome Doherty, with David Gurney posing a late threat on the outside line. Heat two saw probably the easiest win of the evening, this time for Steven Elder who coasted home ahead of Booth and Josh Goligher.
The final opened in controversial fashion, with Gareth McCrory getting spun off which earned Gurney a disqualification. Booth was the man in the box seat once again in this one, and he used all his experience to hold off a determined challenge from McLeister to take the win. Behind the leading duo, Doherty and Elder filled the next places over the line.

Portadown National Hot Rods star Adam Hylands was on top form once again at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday evening, taking his third feature race win in as many meetings at the circuit in Round 12 of the Simpson Race Exhausts World Series NI. There were six formulas in action at the DRS Steelbuildings sponsored meeting, with World Champion Lee Davison from Portadown landing the win in the Tullyroan Challenge Cup for Superstox ahead of Scottish visitor Bryan Forrest. Graham Meek took the Junior Productions Tullyroan Challenge Cup win, whilst Randalstown’s Tim Hazlett was victorious in the opening round of the A Percy Auto Body Repairs Challenge Series for Lightning Rods. The other feature race wins went the way of young Antrim star Leyton Hughes in the Ninja Karts and Dublin’s Paul O’Connor in the Rookie Bangers.

Round 12 of 14 of the Simpson Race Exhausts World Series NI for National Hot Rods saw an excellent entry of 18 cars, with Kenny McCann the first to show in heat one. He lost out to the battling duo of Podge McQuaid and Keith Martin, with star man Adam Hylands chasing them hard. McQuaid hung on to take a morale boosting victory over the impressive Hylands who was showing great pace on the outside line. Heat two saw Ian McReynolds spend many laps out front, before losing out to a sublime outside pass from John Christie. Glenn Bell and Hylands filled the major places.
Having qualified on pole position it was hard to see past Hylands in the final, and he duly pressed ahead right from the off. Bell and Christie kept him honest all the way home, but Adam reeled off yet another final win at his home circuit, his third in as many meetings at Tullyroan this term. Bell, Christie, Keith Martin and Derek Martin filled the places.

The local Superstox drivers were joined by welcome Scottish visitor Bryan Forrest for the Tullyroan Challenge Cup. Ballymena driver Colin Hamill was first to show in heat one in his beautifully turned out machine, Colin leading until challenged by Aaron McNeilly in the closing stages. Aaron went ahead on the final lap only for Hamill to get back inside him exiting the final turn. Colin spun the McNeilly car, but only succeeded in pushing him sideways across the line in a stunning finish! McNeilly took the honours ahead of Hamill and recent form man Jordan Robinson. Paddy Murphy went ahead early on in heat two, before losing out to David Beattie before a caution period when Stephen Stewart found himself stranded and facing the oncoming traffic on the back straight. Beattie led on the restart but hit mechanical woes late on, handing the lead back to Murphy. Paddy withstood a last bend hit from Robinson to take the victory in another great finish, with Forrest sneaking second on the line.
The closed grid start to the Tullyroan Challenge Cup was explosive, with Conor Murphy and Keith McAreavey finding the wall on the Tullyroan Bend. Robinson settled into the lead, with World Champion Lee Davison bearing down on him, tracked by Forrest. Davison made his move with four laps to go, nudging past the leader with Forrest quickly following suit. Bryan just couldn’t get close enough for a last bend lunge, leaving Davison to take a deserved win over Forrest and Sean Mark.

Tim Hazlett quickly established himself out front in the opening Lightning Rods heat, utilising his drop to the blue grade to take a comfortable win over Mark Corry and Nigel Jackson, the latter having had a great run on the outside line. Heat two saw a polished flag to flag win for Ronan McNally, with Martin O’Flaherty and Ricky Shaw next up after Hazlett was docked from third by the race stewards.
Despite his penalty, Hazlett had still qualified on pole position for the Round 1 Final of the A Percy Auto Body Repairs Challenge Series. Jackson made light work of O’Flaherty to go second, and he then chased hard after leader Hazlett. It was Hazlett’s race though, and he powered home to collect the silverware and a nice voucher courtesy of the series sponsors. Jackson was good value in second, with Shaw third after a great drive on the outside of O’Flaherty.

There was a welcome debut for Chelsy Rainey in the Junior Productions as they raced for their Tullyroan Challenge Cup. Irish Champion Adam McFall and Mark Crawford disputed the early lead, which ended in tears when McFall was spun out which later earned Crawford a disqualification. That opened the door for Matthew Nicholl to take the win over James Stewart and Points Champion Sam McNeice. Heat two was another fraught encounter with Stewart this time on the end of a disqualification, as Graham Meek took a clear win over McNeice and Jack Morrow.
Nicholl led the Tullyroan Challenge Cup final away, with Meek immediately on his case at the head of the field. Meek tested Nicholl’s nerve as he swarmed all over his rear end, finally finding a way past with five to go. As Meek pulled clear to the victory, Nicholl was unfortunately railroaded out of contention. McFall came through for a commendable second after qualifying down the grid, with Morrow and Stewart next home.

Leyton Hughes and Rhea McConkey disputed the lead in the opening Ninja Karts heat, which saw the great sight of no less than nine novice graders on the grid. A huge gaggle of backmarkers lay ahead of the leaders on the final lap, and as Hughes and McConkey went to the outside star grader Max Hobson found a way through on the inside line to snatch a very commendable win over Hughes and Odhran Monaghan. Heat two saw Monaghan lead before losing out to the flying Hughes, Leyton then powering home to the victory over McConkey and Monaghan.

Hughes and Monaghan again disputed the lead in the feature race final, with the pair having a right old scrap which allowed Hobson to join their battle in the closing stages. Hughes just held on for a fantastic win, which earns him a rise up the gradings for the next meeting. Hobson came home second ahead of Monaghan, McConkey and Lacey Bevan.

The Rookie Bangers completed the packed race schedule, again producing some excellent action all around the circuit. A great battle developed in the opener between Josh McKinstry, Josh Goligher and Deano McGrath, which fell the way of Goligher when the flag dropped. McGrath took the honours in a bruising heat two, before fellow Dubliner Paul O’Connor raced clear to take the honours in the final. Thomas Megarry and Philip Farrell completed the podium places.
