In the 2.0 Hot Rods Racemart NI Points Championship Stuart Cochrane heads the standings in the quest to retain his title. Glenn Bell and Stephen Emerson are next up, whilst Cochrane also leads the World Championship qualifying points ahead of Emerson. Emerson sits proudly on top of the Hoosier Racing Tire Challenge Series after the opening round, with Round 1 Final winner Bell in second.

Heading the way in the Lightning Rods Maxwell Freight Services NI Points Championship is Tim Hazlett, who holds an advantage over European Champion Jordan Rochford and Mark McCambridge. In the 2018 World Championship qualifying points Rochford tops the standings with a clear lead over Ricky Shaw and McCambridge.

The Stock Rods Maxwell Freight Services NI Points Championship sees Curtis Greer set the pace at the head of the field after a fine start to the season, with Irish Open and Irish Masters winner Stevie McNiece in second ahead of defending points champion Jonny Cardwell. In the World Championship qualifying chart Shane McMillan leads the way over World Champion Marc Morrell and Irish Champion Victor McAfee. After the opening round of the PC Paints & Components Challenge Series on Bank Holiday Monday Jonny Gillespie’s great early season form sees him on top of the chart ahead of Mick Rodgers and Shane McMillan.

The Mk2 Escort Shells and Spares sponsored Superstox NI Points Championship sees early season pacesetter Lee Davison head the field by some way over Sean Mark and Kyle Beattie, whilst Davison also leads the World Championship qualifying points ahead of Stephen Stewart over Greg Hyndman. This chart will of course decide the DMC grid positions for the Tullyroan Oval staged World Final later in the year.

Finally, after last weekend's meeting at Tullyroan Oval the Cirrus Plastics National Hot Rods DMC Race Promotions Championship sees Adam Hylands continue out front ahead of Glenn Bell and recent final winner Keith Martin.

A big Bank Holiday crowd were treated to some excellent racing at Aghadowey Oval on Monday afternoon, culminating in a fantastic Caravan Destruction Derby which fell the way of William McFaul. Enniskillen’s Stevie McNiece took a tense Stock Rods final win at the Getty Precision Engineering sponsored meeting, whilst Lee Davison took a heat and final double in the Superstox. Glenavy’s Dan Shannon was another double winner in the ProStocks, whilst James Goldie also took a heat and feature race brace of wins in the Thunder Rods.
Stock Rods
Philip Wilson celebrated his recent return to racing with a fantastic drive in the opening Stock Rods heat, leading from flag to flag for a great win having just held off Jonny Gillespie and Curtis Greer. The star men were struggling to make an impact, as Gillespie powered through to land the victory in heat two over Wilson and Mick Rodgers after a number of penalties were handed down from Race Control.
The final for the opening round of the PC Paints & Components Challenge Series saw Wilson and Gillespie share the front row with Rodgers and Greer tight behind, and the fans were treated to a tense and drama-filled affair that had the whole stadium enthralled for its duration. Wilson took up the running with Gillespie right on his bumper as the majority of the top runners ran together as one. Greer got under Gillespie to go second but just couldn’t unseat a stubborn Wilson despite all his efforts. There was heartbreak for Wilson ahead though, as contact from down the pack came right through the field and saw him dumped into the wall on the exit of turn four. The yellow caution came out and a number of the top runners were gone, and unbelievably former World Champion Stevie McNiece found himself in the top spot for the restart. Stevie reeled off the final laps to take the win and a very generous prize of a socket set from the series sponsor Rodney Wallace. There were also prizes for second and third placed Shane McMillan and Marc Morrell at the end of a super race that you just couldn’t take your eye off for a second.
Superstox
Fresh from a fourth place finish in the British Championship at Ipswich just 48 hours previous, Portadown’s Lee Davison took the honours in the opening Superstox heat at the opposite end of the British Isles. Gareth Robinson and David Beattie had contested the lead before a caution period wiped out their early advantage. As Davison took the flag Chris McArdle and Kyle Beattie came through for second and third. Robinson again led heat two before losing out to a fast moving Sean Mark who had missed the opening heat with mechanical gremlins. Sean was able to hold off a fast charging Davison over the final laps to record a great win, with Aaron McNeilly taking third spot.
David Beattie held the lead for the opening laps of the final, initially ahead of Robinson before McArdle took over in second. Davison was on a huge charge once again, and he stormed through to take a fine win over Kyle Beattie and McArdle. The afternoon finished with a Dash For Cash which saw all sorts of drama early on. Star grader Stephen Stewart blasted through the chaos to take the win ahead of Davison.

Welcome Scottish star Paul Barron joined the ProStocks for the afternoon, as novice graders David Browne and Sam Stewart contested the lead in the opening heat. Returnee Dylan Booth quickly moved onto terms with them, slicing past to the lead to hold off Joe Largey and Dan Shannon at the flag. Shannon made no mistake in heat two, taking the win over Steven Haugh and William McFaul at the end of an action packed race indeed.
Stewart, Matthew McKinstry and Booth had a great battle up front in the final, but Shannon was on a mission and swooped past to the win over McKinstry and Largey.
Thunder Rods
The opening Thunder Rods heat of the day provided a great win for Ballymena racer James Goldie, as he led home Ryan Campbell and Lee McCloy at the flag. The second heat saw a well deserved victory for David Baird in his superbly turned out Vauxhall, as he just held off Campbell and Goldie at the flag.
David King led the early laps of the feature final before losing out to Goldie who scythed through from the back of the blue grade. James was on top form as he took the flag and the silverware, with Campbell and Baird inheriting second and third after McCloy and Karl Smyth were docked for contact.
Caravan Destruction Derby
A fantastic fourteen caravans came to grid for the Bank Holiday Destruction Derby, including defending champion Dessie Dallas, National Bangers World Champion Steven Bolton and former National Hot Rod World Champion Adam Maxwell. There was carnage right from the off, with Matthew McKinstry catching the eye as he got well and truly stuck in, including going right through a caravan on the home straight! William McFaul was the last man standing to take the honours after a terrific event.

Veteran Dungannon driver Keith Martin took a morale boosting victory in the eleventh round of Hankook Performance Tyres World Series NI for the National Hot Rods at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday night. Keith held off a late charge from Glenn Bell and Adam Hylands to scoop the spoils of victory, whilst other feature race winners at the meeting, sponsored by Bell Building, were Glenn Bell (2.0 Hot Rods), Robbie Wright (1300 Stock Cars), Tim Hazlett (Lightning Rods) and ace Daniel Stewart (Ninja Karts).

Seventeen National Hot Rods took to the grid for Round 11 of Hankook World Series NI, with Kenny McCann the first to show in heat one before being relegated by Portadown’s Andrew Stewart. As Stewart cruised home to the flag, Gary Woolsey was on a charge to second, which later became the win when Stewart was docked for contact on McCann during the passing manoeuvre earlier in the race. Keith Martin and the docked Stewart filled out the top three. Stewart built up a clear lead in heat two, but reigning NI Champion Shane Murray quickly whittled down his advantage to slip past and take the victory over Martin and Stewart, with Woolsey fourth after an excellent outside pass on Adam Heatrick.
Martin and Woolsey shared the front row of the final, with Keith quickly assuming top spot as Adam Hylands and Glenn Bell hovered all over his rear end. A short caution period for a fire in Philip McCloy’s car gave Martin some time to catch his breath, but the rapid Portadown duo were right back on his case once hostilities resumed. Keith used every ounce of his experience to hold them off all the way home to the victory, with Hylands netting second by the slenderest of margins over Bell.

Scotland’s World Champion Gordon Alexander was a welcome addition to the 2.0 Hot Rod ranks as they contested the opening round of the Hoosier Racing Tire Challenge Series. Sean Dynes took up the running in the opening heat before two caution periods for incidents on the Tullyroan Bend closed the field right up. Dynes used all his skill to just hold off Stephen Emerson at the flag, with Allen Cherry in third. Davy Potter was the pacesetter in heat two, and as the laps dwindles down Dynes and Irish Champion Glenn Bell were right with him. A great battle ensued over the final laps with Potter taking a deserved win despite Bell’s attempts on the outside line which saw him just lose out by a fraction with Emerson snatching third.
Dynes and defending Hoosier Series Champion Emerson shared the front row of the grid for the final on aggregate points, and right from the off they battled side by side for the lead. Dynes ran slightly wide out onto the back straight, and in a flash Bell was through past the top duo and into a lead he wouldn’t lose all the way home to the win. Glenn received the trophy sponsored by his family firm, and also a new race tyre courtesy of series sponsors Hoosier. Emerson, Adam Hylands and Cherry filled out the top four.

The heavy metal 1300 Stock Cars were contesting their Tullyroan Challenge Cup, with Robbie Wright storming through from his new star grading to take the heat win one over Jon McQuillan and Nicky Lowry. Heat two saw Wright again continue his recent rich vein of form with another polished win, with Josh McKinstry and McQuillan this time the place men.
As seems to be the norm these days, the final was the race of the night for the formula as Wright hit the front from pole position. The bumpers were flying in on an action packed opening lap, leading to a caution period to see to a stranded Adam McMullan on turn four. Wright controlled the restart and kept the others at bay, powering home to the Tullyroan Challenge Cup ahead of Peter Greer and Willie Stewart.

Another huge field of Lightning Rods entertained the large crowd who were enjoying the warm, sunny weather, with Jonny McMillan continuing his great start to the season with victory in the opening heat of the evening. Jonny just held off a spirited challenge from Tim Hazlett, with Mark McCambridge in third. McMillan again led heat two until a caution period was called for an on track incident. Unfortunately for Jonny he didn’t catch sight of the yellow flags and continued on at full speed to pass a number of backmarkers, leaving the stewards no option but to disqualify him for overtaking during the caution period. That handed the lead to James Litter which he turned into the win by holding off Stephen Hollywood and European Champion Jordan Rochford.
McMillan soon hit the front in the final hoping to make amends for his heat two mistake, but he had no answer to the flying Hazlett who quickly assumed the premier position. Rochford worked his way through to second as he chased his third final win in a row, but it was Hazlett who comfortably held on for a decisive victory over Rochford, McMillan and Hollywood.

The young stars in the Ninja Karts completed the race programme, with six-year-old Leyton Hughes making a very accomplished debut. Irish Champion Andrew Stewart was in a class of his own all evening, taking the heat one win over an impressive Lauren Berry and Max Hobson. Daniel repeated the feat in heat two, taking the chequers ahead of Berry and Lacey Bevan after a mid race stoppage when Brandon Litter rolled out of contention after clipping the spun Kart of Andrew Hawe. Brandon thankfully escaped uninjured from what was a huge crash.
Ryan Berry was first to show in the final, before losing out to his sister Lauren who again was showing a great turn of speed. Stewart arrived on the scene just after half distance though, swooping past to complete a faultless hat-trick and take the Bell Building sponsored silverware. Berry and Hobson completed the podium places.

Packed grids across the five classes on show at Aghadowey Oval on Saturday night produced some fantastic racing that entertained the race fans on a fine late spring evening. European Lightning Rod Champion Jordan Rochford from Portadown continued his great run of form with victory in the opening round of the 2ke Engineering Challenge Series, whilst fellow Portadown racer Robbie Wright took the first round spoils in the 1300 Stock cars Ryan Wright Signs Iron Man Series to continue his fantastic run in his new formula. Other feature race winners at the Hollytree Rare Breeds Farm sponsored event were Magheralin's Stuart Agnew in the Stock Rods, Portadown star Adam Hylands in the 2.0 Hot Rods and Coleraine's Ryan Campbell in the Thunder Rods.

The Lightning Rods continued their great start to 2018 with an entry that once again reached the 20 car barrier. Novice graded Ronan McNally led the opening heat away but Jonny McMillan quickly surged ahead from the yellow grade. Jonny led all the way home to take the first win of the night over Mark McCambridge and James Litter. McNally again led heat two on a packed raceway, before a late caution allowed Tim Hazlett through to land the win over Ricky Shaw and Mark Corry.
Aggregate points from the heats formed the grid for the final with Hazlett assuming the early lead from pole position ahead of Rochford. An intriguing battle developed between the duo as the race progressed, with Jonny McMillan getting himself involved for a time too. Rochford time and again drew alongside Hazlett but just couldn't make it stick, but disaster then struck for Tim as he got outfumbled amongst the heavy backmarking traffic. That allowed Rochford to race clear for another win and with it a generous voucher courtesy of the series sponsors. Shaw and former World Champion Scott Cochrane filled the places at the end of another breathtaking night for the Lightning Rods.

Also in mini series action were the 1300 Stock Cars, making their first DMC appearance of the season for the opening round of the Ryan Wright Signs Iron Man Series. Gary Elliott and Jamie McCann contested the lead in the opener before new season sensation Robbie Wright powered through to take the win over Elliott and Josh McKinstry. Heat two saw a very ragged rolling start, and unfortunately for Wright it meant a two place demotion in the final analysis after he had again taken the chequered flag. That handed the win to Elliott ahead of McCann.
If the heats had been entertaining, the final was nothing short of explosive! McCann led early on before losing out to Wright, with Ulster Champion Nicky Lowry charging into second from the red grade. Newcomer Daryl McAleese got into all sorts of bother on the Brown Trout Bend bringing out a yellow flag, and with the field all closed up things really did kick off! There was another yellow for Elliott a lap later, before Lowry pounced to nudge the leader wide. Wright underlined how he is going to be a major player in the formula in 2018 as he came right back at his more experienced counterpart, landing a telling blow that took him back ahead and home to the chequers where he received a new race tyre courtesy of Ryan Wright Signs. Wright also smashed the lap record for the formula as Lowry took the runner up slot, with a huge battle for third falling to Peter Greer ahead of Willie Stewart after some huge hits late on.


23 Stock Rods took to the grid over the evening with two more unfortunately sidelined after practice, with amongst those on track there were class debuts for Dan Shannon, Paul Hosie and Philip Wilson alongside returns from Chris Hamill and Ben McCully. Sam Wilson was the leader for the opening half of heat one on a very busy raceway, before Curtis Greer rounded out a great drive from the blue grade by taking the win over Jonny Gillespie and McCully. Gillespie stamped his authority all over the second heat as he took the win ahead of McCully and Greer, after another race which saw battles right down the field.
The final turned out to be a cracker, with impressive novice Wilson again leading early on before Stuart Agnew found a way past. Stuart was under severe pressure as the laps ticked down, with Gillespie, Sam Wilson, Greer and McCully tight on his back panel. Even a late race caution period didn't unnerve Agnew and he took a morale boosting win ahead of Greer, Gillespie and Jonny Cardwell after another superb night of racing from the Stock Rods.

Amongst a pleasing field of 2.0 Hot Rods was Stuart Cochrane at the wheel of the former Wayne Woolsey championship winning Saxo, and he quickly showed some electric pace in his new mount. He had to make do with second in the opener as he just couldn't find a way past long time leader Aaron Beattie. Beattie again took the honours in heat two, this time holding off Adam Hylands and Stephen Emerson at the flag.
With Beattie upgraded after his two wins, it was local ace Thomas Morrison who set the pace in the feature race, but Hylands was soon on the chase with Cochrane in tow. An early skirmish had eliminated a number of cars, but Hylands powered past Morrison on the restart to take a fine win indeed, with Cochrane keeping him honest all the way home in second ahead of Adam Best and Emerson.

The Thunder Rods completed the line up with three very competitive races, with a debut for former National Hot Rod star Davy Gurney and an outing for Superstox favourite Sean Mark. Ryan Campbell hit the front in heat one before losing out to James Goldie, but the man to watch was Lee McCloy who swept past for the win ahead of Campbell and Andrew McLean. There was another close battle for the places in heat two, which fell the way of Goldie ahead of a great scrap which saw Jason Darragh get second over McCloy.
Aaron Darragh was the first to show in the final but Campbell quickly surged through to the lead. As Goldie and McCloy squabbled over second, Ryan pulled clear to land his second final win in succession with Goldie and McCloy filling the podium positions.
