With the main 2017 season behind us, we have updated all the Lap Records for both Aghadowey Oval and Tullyroan Oval. Only a few of the standards were bettered during the year, with Clive Richardson beating the Classic Hot Rods benchmark at both circuits in his rapid Mk2 Escort. Denver Grattan's Zetec powered Superstox lowered the record at Aghadowey by shaving 4/1000th's of a second off the previous best, whilst young hotshot Daniel Stewart took almost a tenth of a second off the Ninja Karts record at Tullyroan.

With the regular season at DMC Race Promotions now complete, we have our final points update now online.

The Cirrus Plastics DMC Race Promotions Points Championship for National Hot Rods once again went right down to the final race of the final round, and it was Broughshane's Jaimie McCurdy who romped home to the win in the end for the second year in succession. Jaimie finished up five points ahead of John Christie with Glenn Bell in third.

The Tullyroan Oval Gala Night also saw the finale of the Bevan's Garage Reliant Robins NI Points Championship. Neil Martin, our regular turn one safety marshal at Tullyroan Oval, scooped the honours in that one showing that he has top ability on both sides of the fence. His heat one win secured the points title, with Mark McCartan in second and another DMC staff member, Haley Bevan, in third.

The National Bangers Points Championship runs from World Final to World Final, and with two meetings under their belts in the quest to qualify for Ipswich 2018 it is defending champ Leonard Dunn who leads the standings over fellow Bad Company member Stephen Boyd.

The 2018 World Championship Qualifying points chart for Stock Rods sees Irish Champion Victor McAfee lead World Champion Marc Morrell, whilst European Champion Jordan Rochford leads Ricky Shaw in the Lightning Rods World Championship qualifying. The Superstox World Qualification table is only one meeting old, but it sensationally sees novice James Turkington at the head of the standings after an excellent debut meeting.

To view the latest points, click on 'Drivers' in the menu bar above, then 'Points & Grades' and then select the desired formula from the drop down menu. All drivers should note that their correct roof colour should be applied as laid down in their formula's Rules & Regulations. Checks will be carried out over the coming meetings and offenders may be forced to start from the rear of the field.

A fantastic fireworks display and some top race action thrilled an excellent crowd at the Tullyroan Oval Gala Night on Saturday. On a crisp Autumn evening, Glenavy's Dan Shannon completed a hat-trick of ProStocks Irish Championship wins, with the 2L National Bangers Irish Championship falling to Donemana's Leonard Dunn. Banbridge star Denver Grattan came out on top in the Superstox NIOvalTV Series Shootout final, with other wins at the Hollytree Rare Breeds Farm backed event falling to Richard Stewart (Lightning Rods) and Billy McClean (Reliant Robins).

A smaller than expected field of ProStocks took to the grid for the 2017 Irish Championship, but the line up still oozed star quality from front to back. An early incident and resulting caution period ended front row starter Joe Largey's title aspirations, with pole man Dan Shannon moving clear with British Champion Adam White stepping forward to challenge him. The duo traded bows and swapped the lead, with White finally getting the edge to take the chequered flag ahead of Shannon and Steven Haugh. Unfortunately White's car then failed the post race technical checks which saw him excluded, handing victory for the third year in succession to Shannon. Haugh and Stephen Boyd completed the podium places.
A destructive Irish Revenge race saw some badly damaged cars, with Lee Booth coming home for the win.

Before racing commenced the newly crowned Unlimited National Bangers World Champion Steven Bolton was paraded to the local fans to a rapturous reception following his recent big win in Ipswich. Steven was out of luck though in the Irish Championship race, with Leonard Dunn powering home to add the Irish title to his points championship success. Stephen Boyd and Ian Crowley completed the top three in the title race, before Boyd drove a superb Allcomers race to remove both Dunn and Stephen Doyle on his way to the victory. Dunn and English visitor John Reeves chased him over the line.
The Destruction Derby saw some excellent hits handed out, with James Goodman finishing off Crowley to take the win. Crowley was awarded the Entertainer of the Day award, with Rodney Herron declared Best Wreck whilst Bolton took the Best Presented Car award.

The Superstox reached the finale of the lucrative and successful NIOvalTV Series, with the first heat brought to a halt following a very hefty shunt at the end of the home straight for Keith McAreavey and Aaron McNeilly. Both thankfully eventually emerged from the wreckage, before Neil Davison roared home to complete the distance and take the win over his brother Lee and impressive newcomer James Turkington. Heat two was dominated by the novices once again, with Turkington being relegated by David Beattie who went on to record a morale boosting win, with Stephen Stewart edging past Turkington for second with a last bend hit.
The final saw Turkington impress again as he led for many laps, only for Londonderry racer Gregg Hyndman to end his recent run of bad luck by slipping through to take a great win. Stewart went for a commendable do or die effort on the last bend which left him firmly planted in the wall, allowing James Logan through to second ahead of Neil Davison, with Logan also grabbing the white and yellow grade award.
The top six in the series standings returned to contest the NIOvalTV Series Shootout final, led off by a three wide salute by the drivers to an excellent reception from the fans. When the green flag went down at the start of the five laps, the bumpers went in hard into the first turn, seeing Stewart again end up in the wall with yet more damage. Denver Grattan pulled clear to take the decisive win over Conor Murphy and Hyndman, with all three receiving tyres from the series sponsors.

An excellent field of Lightning Rods contested three closely fought races, with Gerry Rogers out front in the opener until challenged by Jordan Rochford late on. European Champion Rochford made his experience count and found a way past with the flag in sight to take a great win over Richard Stewart and Rogers. Heat two saw former ProStocks World Cup Champion Tam Agnew race clear to take the win and announce his arrival in the formula in no uncertain terms. Rochford and Ricky Shaw were the placemen.
The final saw Agnew again out front, but this time he was relegated by Aaron Brunton and then Stewart. Richard looked to have plenty in hand but Rochford closed in towards the end to put the leader under pressure. Stewart has raced enough laps in his time though, and he held on to take a great victory over Rochford and Mark McCambridge.

As always the Reliant Robins entertained on Gala Night, with Neil Martin taking the opening heat win over returnee Billy McClean. The win confirmed Neil as 2017 Points Champion, which will earn him pole position for the Irish Championship in December. Martin again led the second heat, until McClean found a way past and Martin went out in a big shunt. As McClean took the victory, Haley Bevan and Ian Bolton filled the places.
The final turned into a terrific lead scrap between Martin, McClean, Bolton, John Stewart and David McKinnon, with no quarter asked and certainly none given between the five of them! From an excellent dice McClean emerged as the winner ahead of Martin and Stewart.

A great combination of short oval racing and fireworks thrilled the fans at the Aghadowey Oval Gala Night on Friday, with an excellent crowd enjoying some terrific action both on and off track. The racing saw a superb heat and final double for Portadown's Glenn Bell in the latest National Hot Rods World Series Round, whilst Cullybackey's Gareth Robinson took the win in a closely contested Thunder Rods Irish Championship. The other big races at the McCurdy Fuels/Wilson McCurdy Haulage sponsored meeting saw Kells ace Shane McMillan win the Stock Rods King of Aghadowey, with Daniel Stewart victorious in the Ninja Karts Stars of Tomorrow Challenge.

A record 21 National Hot Rods came to grid for the seventh round of Hankook Performance Tyres World Series NI, the mid point of the year long contest. The racing was fast and furious all evening, with the first heat the pick of the bunch. Davy McKay went ahead early in this one, before losing out to former British Champion Stewart Doak. Doak was fighting a rear guard action against the star men throughout the closing stages, with Adam Hylands charging around the outside looking for the lead just as Glenn Bell found a gap under Doak. The three abreast moment saw Bell emerge ahead and he took the victory in some style over Hylands and Doak. Heat two saw a rare flag to flag win in the formula, with Andrew Stewart showing the rest a clean pair of heels to rack up a very popular victory over British Champion John Christie, after he relegated long time second man Simon Kennedy on the line.
Bell and Christie shared the front row for the final ahead of Hylands and Adam Heatrick, with Bell getting the best of a frantic opening to go ahead. Glenn raced home to take the feature final win and his second victory of the night, with Hylands and Christie completing the podium finishers. Despite Christie's best efforts, Jaimie McCurdy came out top in the Cirrus Plastics 2017 DMC Race Promotions Points Champion, receiving a superb trophy and four new slick tyres from the sponsors.

The Thunder Rods Irish Championship was lined up in 2017 points scoring order, with David Wilson and Samuel Montgomery sharing the front row ahead of Gareth Robinson and Andrew McLean. At the off Wilson quickly established himself out front, but was soon under pressure from Robinson for the top spot. Gareth seized his chance when Wilson got baulked by a backmarker, Robinson racing home to the Irish Championship crown ahead of Wilson and Montgomery. Wilson's consolation was the N Purdy and Sons NI Points Championship award, and with it the superb William Bradley Perpetual Trophy.
The reversed grid Irish Revenge race saw John Lamont lead the way for most of the distance before losing out to Ashley Hawe. Ashley took the flag but was docked two places for contact during the event, handing the win to Chrissy Dempsey over Lamont.

Welcome English visitor James Morris joined the local Stock Rods aces for the King of Aghadowey, and it was also pleasing to see former British Champion Bobbie Johnston back in action on the Ulster tracks, as well as a return to racing for former World Champ Chris Gordon. Recently crowned Irish Champion Victor McAfee took the honours in the opening heat despite the great efforts of runner up Stevie McNiece, with Ed Davis in third. Heat two saw a faultless run from Morris to take the victory, the Englishman leading home World Champion Marc Morrell and a great return from McAfee in third from the back of the grid.
McAfee set the pace from pole position in the final, and just as he was looking odds on for the victory mechanical gremlins cruelly intervened. As he ground to a halt, Morrell hit the front ahead of McNiece, with the latter losing out after attempting the outside pass for the lead. As they entered the closing stages, Morris cannoned into McMillan and in turn Morrell, unseating the World Champion from the lead. It became rather messy from there on, and at the end of the race a number of penalties were handed down. McMillan was a deserved winner, with Johnston and McNiece second and third respectively after Morrell and Morris were amongst four drivers penalised by the Stewards in the final analysis.

The opening Ninja Kart heat saw a career first win for Lacey Bevan, who soaked up late pressure from Curtis McConkey and Max Hobson to take her first ever chequered flag after a commanding performance. Heat two saw Stewart Hanna take the win over Matthew Weir and Odhran Monaghan, and it was Hanna who set the pace in the Stars of Tomorrow Challenge final. Irish Champion Daniel Stewart was driving like a superstar though, and he pulled himself onto terms with the leader before swooping past to take the victory after a great drive from down the grid. Hanna and McConkey rounded out the top three.
