All five formulas on show at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday evening produced some ultra competitive race action on a warm summer’s evening blighted by one heavy shower. Former Irish Champion Richard Stewart from Aghadowey took a fine win in the Lightning Rods Tullyroan Challenge Cup, while Portadown’s Adam Hylands was victorious in the second round of the 2.0 Hot Rods Hooiser Racing Tire Challenge Series. Young Ryan Berry took his first ever race win as he claimed the Ninja Karts Golden Helmet Award, whilst Chris Hamill celebrated a heat and final double in the Stock Rods and Irish Champion Drew McKeown claimed the Junior Productions honours at the DRS Steelbuildings sponsored event.

Another very healthy field of Lightning Rods assembled to contest the Tullyroan Challenge Cup, with Scott Cochrane taking the first heat win in an event which saw a heavy shower hit the circuit mid race. Long time leader Mark Corry was bundled out of the race which earned Jonny McMillan a disqualification, but Cochrane coped admirably with the tricky conditions to take the win over Stephen Hollywood and Ricky Shaw. The reverse grid second heat saw Irish Champion Nigel Jackson take the win, overcoming some heavy pressure from Richard Stewart and a late race caution too.
Stewart and Cochrane shared the front row for the final, with Stewart assuming the lead with Cochrane and Jackson for close company. Cochrane glanced the home straight wall and lost a wheel to bring about a caution period, but Stewart wasn’t to be denied as he romped home to a fine victory over Jackson and Jordan Rochford.

A depleted field of 2.0 Hot Rods arrived for the second round of the Hoosier Racing Tire Challenge Series. Davy Potter set the pace for much of the opening heat until Adam Hylands found a way past in the closing stages. The robust move caught the eye of the Race Stewards with Hylands fortunate to keep the win over Allen Cherry and Potter. Heat two wasn’t without controversy too, as long time leader Thomas Morrison lost out when the leaders encountered a backmarker at just the wrong time. Adam Best claimed the win over Hylands and Stuart Cochrane.
Hylands had annexed pole spot for the final, and went on to lead from flag to flag despite the close attentions of Best in second. Hylands received a new Hoosier race tyre courtesy of the series sponsors, with Best and Cochrane rounding out the podium.
During the meeting Hylands was also presented with the National Hot Rods Hankook Performance Tyres World Series NI Shield after he won the season long points chase in the elite formula on the Ulster ovals.

The Ninja Karts saw a debut for Lexi Crooks, with Irish Champion Daniel Stewart snatching the win in the closing stages after a great effort from long time leader Lauren Berry, who had to settle for second ahead of Max Hobson. Stewart again took the win in heat two, with Lauren Berry again in second ahead of Andrew Hawe.
The final for the Golden Helmet Award saw Lauren Berry set the early pace as she chased her first ever race victory, leading her brother Ryan initially. Stewart was on a charge but Lauren was driving the race of her life to hang on to her advantage. Disaster struck at the start of the last lap though as she spun out, receiving a glancing blow from Hobson. The reds came out immediately to check on Lauren, who emerged unscathed to a tremendous ovation from the crowd for her efforts. The one lap dash to the flag saw Stewart lead them off, but Ryan Berry made a great start to slip past into the lead. As they entered the final turn there was contact between the two leading karts, with Stewart coming through to take the flag. The Stewards had no option but to impose a penalty on Daniel, handing the win and the Golden Helmet trophy to a delighted Ryan Berry for his first ever race victory. Lacey Bevan inherited second with Stewart demoted to third place.

A great turnout of Stock Rods saw Chris Hamill demote Robert McIlroy just after half distance to take the opening heat victory, with McIlroy holding on for second ahead of Mark Overend. Overend then had a spell out front in heat two before losing out to Samuel Montgomery as a great race developed at the head of the pack. Formula debutant Matthew McKinstry then produced a great drive to nip ahead and take a great win over Gary Butler and Curtis Greer.
It was hard work for the top stars once again in the final from the rear of the line up, with McIlroy going ahead for the first ten laps. By that stage Hamill had relegated his fellow yellow graders to take the challenge to the leader, and he duly slipped by to record a sublime heat and final double and with it earn a grading rise for the next meeting. Butler again impressed in second ahead of a fast charging Shane McMillan and Stevie McNiece from the star grade.

The Junior Productions saw James Stewart have his best meeting to date, and he led the opening heat when they were brought to a halt for a caution period. James led the rest of the way home but was unfortunately docked for jumping the restart, something that had been a topic in the pre-race drivers briefing. That elevated Matthew Nicholl to the win over Adam Weir, with Stewart having to make do with third spot. Former Ninja Karts star Aaron Ward took a handsome flag to flag win in the second heat, leading home Nicholl and Adam McFall.
Stewart again impressed as he led the opening exchanges of the final, even overcoming a mid race caution which brought the field onto his tail. He continued to drive very well until Nicholl found a way past in the closing to take the chequered flag. The Stewards weren’t happy with his pass on Stewart and Matthew was unfortunately docked two places in the final analysis, handing the victory to Irish Champion Drew McKeown ahead of Sam McNeice and Nicholl.

Mike Flaherty won his second National Bangers Shamwreck title at a sun drenched Aghadowey Oval on Sunday, taking the flag after a dramatic title race. There was some excellent racing on show all afternoon, with Allan Leonard the other big National Banger winner as he took the James ‘The Cat’ Smith Memorial Destruction Derby. Other feature race winners at the Cherry Pipes sponsored meeting were Lee Davison (Superstox), Norman Purdy (Thunder Rods), Joe Largey (ProStocks) and John Stewart (Reliant Robins).

Mark Dalgarno from Scotland set the early pace in the heat race for the Unlimited National Bangers, leading Stevo McGrath and Leonard Dunn in the opening stages. It was an excellent race, as McGrath and Dunn went ahead until they encountered Dan Dooner’s Hearse on the back straight. In an instant McGrath was out and Dunn was turned around too, opening the door for Jonny Murdock to power through to take first blood for Team Buckle ahead of Mike Flaherty and Jason Burke. World Champion Steven Bolton was handily placed until a blown engine ended his day.
The Shamwreck final was next up, which put the top heat finishers at the front of the grid. As Murdock went ahead, there was some huge action on turn one which brought out the reds with Scotland’s Scott Patterson in trouble. Murdock resumed the lead again ahead of Flaherty, and as we reached five laps to go Jonny came upon the backmarking Danny Flaherty. As he went to dive inside him, Murdock clipped the rear of Danny’s car and was sent into a huge rollover on the pit bend. The race was stopped, with Jonny emerging unhurt from the wreckage to a tremendous ovation from the crowd for his efforts. Mike Flaherty reeled off the remaining laps to take his second Shamwreck title in some style, with Scotland’s Colin Riddell a close second ahead of Dwayne Lynch.
The Allcomers race saw a easy win for Stevo McGrath, and he also had time for a huge hit on Danny Flaherty’s machine too. The meeting ended with the James ‘The Cat’ Smith Memorial Destruction Derby which saw some enormous hits handed out. There was a huge jacking train on turn two, and through the carnage Allan Leonard emerged to take another win for the Last Rites team.
Steven Bolton took the Best Presented Car Award for his Ford Scorpio, Rodney Herron’s Volvo was judged Best Wreck and Murdock took a well deserved Entertainer of the Day award.

The Superstox played a great supporting role, with a very dominant Lee Davison going through the card unbeaten. David Beattie set the early heat one pace before Portadown flier Davison powered through to the win over Sean Mark and Stephen Stewart. Heat two saw a number of caution periods, the first for Aaron McNeilly stranded on turn four and then when James Turkington took a heavy knock on the Brown Trout Bend. Sean Mark hit the front but had no answer to the flying RCE engineered machine of Davison. Lee took his second win of the day over Mark and Stewart once again.
D Beattie again led the way for a number of laps in the final, with Stewart chasing before he was forced to give way to Davison. Lee surged ahead to the lead and the win on lap thirteen, coming home ahead of Stewart and Mark as fourth placed finisher Kyle Beattie was unfortunately removed from the results after a minor technical infringement. Davison received his trophy from PDC Darts superstar Daryl Gurney who was enjoying the racing action for the day.

It was excellent to see a number of new drivers amongst a good entry in the Thunder Rods, as David King led the opening laps of the first heat. Jason Darragh went ahead on half distance and just held off Davy Gurney for the win, with James Goldie in third. King again led heat two before losing out to newcomer Graham Loughlin, with Norman Purdy then moving ahead to take the flag. He was adjudged to have made illegal contact during the race though and was penalised two places in the final analysis, handing the win to Goldie over Loughlin.
After his heat two penalty Purdy hit back in style in the Cherry Pipers sponsored final, catching the squabbling lead duo of King and Gavin Gamble. Gamble assumed the top position before Purdy executed a superb outside line pass to take a fantastic win. Gurney and Samuel Montgomery rounded out the top three ahead of Andrew McLean and Darragh.

A huge battle raged between the star graded ProStocks all afternoon, with no quarter given and certainly none expected! Sam Stewart set the pace in heat one, but it was Irish Champion Dan Shannon who charged through to the win over Steven Haugh and British Champion Adam White. Heat two exploded into life when Shannon got fenced hard on the Brown Trout Bend, losing a wheel in the process. Haugh assumed the lead as hostilities resumed, but White came from miles back on the last bend to land a telling blow which knocked Haugh wide and gave him a truly fantastic win. Haugh and Stephen Boyd filled the places after Stewart was removed from the results for a differential irregularity by the scrutineers.
David Browne’s early final lead was wiped out by a yellow flag for a loose spring on turn four. There had been plenty of swapping of paint and places between the top runners, but Joe Largey stamped his authority on proceedings to take the win over Haugh and a repaired Shannon.

The three wheeler Reliant Robins were contesting their King of Aghadowey title, with Ian Bolton taking the opening heat over John Stewart and Neil Martin. Martin went for a half roll in heat two as he wrestled for the lead with Gareth Bevan, opening the door for Stewart to take the victory over Bolton. The final saw Haley Bevan set the pace for half the distance, when despite a spirited defence she had to give best to Martin. Stewart then surged past both to take the win over Martin and H Bevan.

A frantic Friday night of race action at Aghadowey Oval saw four non-contact formulas produce some excellent racing. Broughshane’s Jaimie McCurdy was on top form in the National Hot Rods as he steered his Ginetta to a polished heat and final double, whilst Portadown’s Adam Hylands did likewise in the 2.0 Hot Rods to claim the 2018 King of Aghadowey title. The other feature race winners at the meeting, sponsored by McKnight Motors of Coagh, were Philip Wilson in the Stock Rods and Brian Edgar in the Thunder Rods.

It was the thirteenth and penultimate round of the Hankook Performance Tyres World Series NI for the National Hot Rods, and the opening heat saw Kenny McCann set the pace until Jaimie McCurdy burst through from the blue grade to take up the running on lap nine. Derek Martin was giving chase but then McCurdy’s advantage disappeared when the yellow flags came out for a stranded Keith Martin on the pits bend. Despite having D Martin on his tail at the restart, McCurdy held on for the win over D Martin and Ulster Champion Glenn Bell. Heat two was all about Carl Sloan, as the Kells ace stormed home to a fine win over D Martin and McCurdy.
McCurdy and D Martin shared the front row for the final, with Jaimie hitting the front early on ahead of Bell and Martin. McCurdy was under the cosh for most of the distance, but showed great maturity to hold off the onslaught from behind all the way home to the flag and the silverware. Bell, Martin, Shane Murray and Adam Hylands filled out the places.

There was some phenomenal action amongst the pack in the opening heat for the 2.0 Hot Rods, whilst out front Aaron Beattie held off Adam Hylands for the lead. Hylands took up the running as Beattie faltered, Adam racing home to the win over Mark Madill and Sean Dynes. Heat two saw local driver Thomas Morrison out front early on before Allen Cherry found a way past to take the lead, and ultimately the win, over Adam Best and Hylands.
The King of Aghadowey final saw Hylands on pole position and he quickly settled into the lead. There was a great battle developing for second between Best, Stephen Emerson and Cherry. The trio swapped places time and again, but all the time Hylands was edging clear to the win with Cherry and Emerson taking second and third over the line. Unfortunately Emerson failed post race checks due to a tyre infringement, which saw him excluded and Best elevated onto the podium.

Returnee Samuel Murphy set the pace in the opening Stock Rods heat from another very healthy entry, with Philip Wilson and Chris Hamill chasing hard. Hamill burst through to take the win on the road, but was demoted for contact on Wilson on his way past. That handed the win to Ed Davis ahead of Gary Butler and the demoted Hamill. Hamill made no mistake in heat two, quickly demoting early pacesetter Johnny McCloy to race clear to the victory over Samuel Montgomery and Wilson.
Montgomery led the early stages of the final before Wilson and Hamill found a way past to the front. The leader was under huge pressure, as further behind there was a fantastic places scrap amongst the pack. Wilson kept all under control up front, taking a deserved final win after losing out so cruelly at the last meeting. Hamill, World Champion Marc Morrell and Irish Open Champion Stevie McNiece filled out the top places. Winner Wilson also received a new Yokohama tyre courtesy of Pets2go2.co.uk.

DMC Race Promotions debutant Brian Edgar led the opening Thunder Rods heat for much of the distance ahead of John Lamont, before both lost out to a fast charging Ryan Campbell. Campbell has had a great start to 2018 and took yet another race win over Davy Gurney and Edgar. Lamont stamped his authority all over heat two, leading from flag to flag for a tremendous win despite pressure late on from behind. David Baird and Campbell filled the places.
The final saw Edgar hit the front from the off ahead of Lamont. The star men closed in and got amongst the leaders in the closing stages, but Edgar held his nerve in fine style for a great debut feature race win. Campbell and Andrew McLean completed the podium finishers.
