A superb evening of racing was served up by all five formulas on show at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday night, with close, competitive action the order of the day. National Hot Rods World Champion Adam Maxwell was victorious in the penultimate round of World Series NI, whilst the other feature race wins at the meeting, sponsored by Bell Building of Portadown, fell to Banbridge driver Denver Grattan (Superstox), Ballymena's Aaron Ward (Ninja Karts), Glenavy racer Mark McCambridge (Lightning Rods) and Portadown's Jeff Richardson (Classic Hot Rods).

The opening National Hot Rods heat took place on a damp and tricky surface, with Ben McKee slotting ahead early on before losing out to Ian McReynolds. The Lurgan driver had no answer to a flying World Champion Adam Maxwell though, the Crumlin ace slipping ahead and on to take the chequered flag. Adam unfortunately was docked two places in the final result for jumping the start, handing victory to Broughshane's Jaimie McCurdy ahead of Keith Martin. The track was back in tip top condition for heat two, with early pacesetter Phillip McCloy losing out to McReynolds on lap eight. Ian held on all the way to the flag as the pack battled hard behind him, with Gary Wilson and Maxwell rounding out the top three
Aggregate heat points saw McReynolds and McCurdy on the front row for the final, and McReynolds duly set off in the lead with Maxwell slotting into second, Maxwell found an opening right on half distance to move ahead, with McCurdy trailing through to second in his wake. Behind there was a huge places scrap going on between Stewart Doak, John Christie, Shane Murray, Mark Heatrick and more, but up front the World Champion had all under control as Adam took the honours over McCurdy, Adam Heatrick and Glenn Bell.

The Superstox were contesting the opening round of the lucrative NIOvalTV Series and it was pleasing to see a fantastic entry on hand, the largest of the season so far. The damp conditions in heat one saw early drama for Lee Johnston and Andrew Morrow bringing out the yellow flags, and on the resumption Gary Chambers worked his way to the front. He was being tracked by Stephen Stewart, and Stewart duly went in with the bumper three laps from home to secure a telling victory for his RCE engineered machine. Chambers and Lee Davison filled out the places. Heat two will go down as one of the races of the year, with Greg Hyndman the early leader before he was deposed by Johnston. The front runners all came together over the final laps, and into the last bend a whole gaggle were chasing the win. The bumpers went flying in and it was Irish Champion Denver Grattan who came through to take a sensational victory by a hair's breadth having started the final lap in fourth spot. Conor Murphy was good value in second ahead of Aaron McNeilly and Johnston.
Ian McAllister and then Hyndman led early on in the final, which would turn out to be a bruising affair. Johnston hit the front after he and Hyndman exchanged blows and the top spot on a couple of occasions. Johnston had no answer however when Grattan came knocking on his rear bumper, Denver going ahead on lap thirteen. Even a late race caution period when David McMenemy found himself perched on top of Chris McArdle couldn't thwart Grattan's victory charge, and he took the honours ahead of Murphy and Johnston, the latter taking a well earned trophy for top white or yellow grade finisher from generous sponsors NIOvalTV.

The Ninja Karts Tullyroan Challenge Cup final was also a fantastic encounter, with a huge lead battle from start to finish between six or more drivers. Pole starter Jack Morrow led most of the way, swapping the lead with Aaron Ward at one stage in an enthralling race. Morrow was in front at the chequered flag, but was unfortunately demoted two places by the Race Stewards for contact on Ward during the race. That elevated Ward to the Challenge Cup win over Stewart Hanna, with Daniel Stewart inheriting third after the Morrow team refused to accept the third place trophy.
Earlier both heats had been won in some style by Morrow, but his load up from the meeting after the incidents after the final saw them wiped from the record books, handing the victories to Stewart and Sam Percy.

The Lightning Rods were contesting the opening round of the 2ke Engineering Challenge Series, with returnee Steven McNeill a welcome addition to the field. Ricky Shaw was the man on a mission in the opening heat, scything past early leader Dermot Tynan to take the win over Mark McCambridge and British Champion Jordan Rochford. McCambridge went one better in heat two, taking a decisive victory over Shaw and Ally Neill to gain himself pole position for the final.
Shaw shared the front row for the final with McCambridge, with Mark moving ahead of Ally Neill early on as Shaw got crossed up into turn three. The incident bought McCambridge some breathing space up front, and he duly romped home to take the silverware and a generous voucher from the series sponsors 2ke Engineering. Mark also earned himself a rise back to the star grade courtesy of his two wins, with Scott Cochrane, Rochford and Neill following him home in the final.

Once again the sight of the Classic Hot Rods thrilled the race fans as they contested the latest round of the Dilly Roofing Supplies NI Series. Kenny Wilson and Jeff Richardson shared the lead early on in the opener, before National Champion Clive Richardson roared through to take the win over Irish Points Champion Thomas Dilly and Irish Grand Prix winner Gary O'Neill, after initial third placed finisher Anthony Morgan was removed from the results for a tyre irregularity. Clive Richardson ruled the roost again in heat two, this time relegating his brother Jeff with just four laps remaining to take the win.
Jeff Richardson once again led the final, and despite a very serious challenge late on by Clive it was Jeff who took a deserved win over Clive, with O'Neill in third.

A competitive afternoon across five formulas produced title win for Glenavy's Dan Shannon and Bleary's Drew McKeown on Sunday afternoon at Tullyroan Oval. Shannon was victorious in the ProStocks Tullyroan Challenge Cup whilst McKeown took the Junior Productions Golden Helmet, both completing hat-tricks in the process. Other feature race winners at the meeting, sponsored by A McKeown & Son Fruit & Veg, fell to Stephen Emerson (2.0 Hot Rods), Adrian McKinstry (1300 Stock Cars) and Sammy Fisher (Rookie Bangers).

The opening heat for the ProStocks was led for much of the distance by William McFaul, but in the closing stages he had his mirrors full of Irish Champion Dan Shannon. Shannon went in with the bumper to perfection on the last lap to grab the win, with McFaul second ahead of a battling Steven Haugh and Ryan Abernethy. Greg McMullan led the second heat in similar fashion to McFaul, only for Shannon to pounce once again on the last bend to take another great win as McMullan and Abernethy filled the places.
Shannon's 100% record obviously netted him pole position for the final, and when the early contact failed to materialise he was gone and off into a huge lead in the Tullyroan Challenge Cup decider. As he swept home to the title win in fine style, a great battle for the places fell the way of McFaul over Davy Wright and Abernethy.

NI Points Champion Drew McKeown was in emphatic form as he took a hat-trick of all three race wins in the Junior Productions to land the Golden Helmet Trophy. From pole he was never challenged in the opener as he took the win over Ben Bruce and Adam Weir, after Graham Meek lost two places at the hands of the Steward for contact. Weir, Joel McPeake and Meek were amongst those to hit trouble early in heat two, whilst up front McKeown found a way past Sam McNeice to take his second victory of the day over McNeice and Matthew Nicholl.
McKeown stamped his authority all over the final, racing clear to land the A McKeown and Son Golden Helmet title, sponsored by his family's business, in outstanding style. A great charge from Meek saw him net second after a great drive, with McNeice good value in third.

A great drive from Allen Cherry saw him take the win in the opening 2.0 Hot Rods heat, pulling off a superb outside line pass on Aaron Beattie to take the honours. A late run by Stuart Cochrane netted him second, ahead of Beattie in third. Beattie continued his fine start to the season with a win in heat two, holding off European Champion Stephen Emerson and Pat Casey to the flag.
Aggregate points formed the grid for the final of the opening round of the Hoosier Racing Tyres Challenge Series, with Beattie and Emerson sharing the front row. Beattie impressively held off the initial challenge of his much more experienced rival, before a mechanical problem forced Aaron out. That left Emerson clear in the lead, and although Cochrane kept him honest all the way home it was Emerson who took the honours and the new Hoosier race tyre courtesy of the sponsors. Cochrane, an impressive Brian Cherry and Feargal McNally filled the places.

The 1300 Stock Cars were racing in the opening round of the Ryan Wright Signs Iron Man Series, and it was early season form man Adrian McKinstry who took the opening heat win over Aaron Rainey and Michael Logan. Logan was the man to beat in heat two, taking the win this time over Rainey and McKinstry. For the final it was highest points scorer to the front of each grade, and once again Logan went ahead but had no answer when the flying McKinstry arrived on the scene. Adrian powered ahead to take the win over Rainey and Logan.

The Rookie Bangers had their first Ulster outing of the year, and after a quiet opener things became very lively and interesting for heat two and the final. The opener fell to usual National Bangers star Stevo McGrath over long time leader Paul O'Connor. An excellent second heat saw Peter McKenna-Murray lead the way for much of the distance, but he sensationally lost out to O'Connor on the final lap.
A hugely entertaining final saw all sorts of action right around the track, with Sammy Fisher establishing himself out front after McKenna-Murray had led the initial laps. Fisher was equal to all the attempts to stop him on his tracks, and was awarded the win after a late stoppage for a hefty knock on the back straight. Behind the victorious Fisher, Christy Bradley and Rodney Herron filled out the podium.

In this week's points update there are the latest standings for Lightning Rods, Thunder Rods and National Hot Rods.

In the Lightning Rods, former World Champion Scott Cochrane tops the Maxwell Freight Services NI Points Championship, with a slender lead over British Champion Jordan Rochford and World Champion Gary Beggs. Rochford continues to lead the World Championship qualifying campaign which will see the top eight in the standings at the end of May heading off to the World Final at Ipswich in July.

The Thunder Rods have had an excellent start to the season, and Robert McIlroy leads the way in their Norman Purdy & Son NI Points Championship and seals a return to the red grade. Chasing hard are John Goligher and defending points champion Samule Montgomery.

In the National Hot Rods Cirrus Plastics DMC Race Promotions points championship, Portadown's Mark Heatrick has moved ahead in the standings after three solid finishes at Aghadowey Oval last Friday night. Mark leads John Christie and Jaimie McCurdy in the championship which takes in all the National Hot Rod meetings at Tullyroan and Aghadowey during the calendar year.

A four formula feast of oval racing was enjoyed by the race fans at Aghadowey Oval on Friday evening, with close, competitive racing the order of the day across all the formulas on show. Broughshane's Jaimie McCurdy was the victor in an enthralling twelfth round of the Hankook Performance Tyres World Series NI for National Hot Rods, whilst the other feature race wins at the McKnight Motors of Coagh sponsored event fell to Feargal McNally (2.0 Hot Rods), Jordan Rochford (Lightning Rods) and Daniel Rodgers (Thunder Rods).
National Hot Rods
Before the opening National Hot Rods event of the evening, Dungannon driver Keith Martin was presented with a fine souvenir by the governing body, the NHRPA, to celebrate the 30th anniversary of his first major title win, the British Championship back in 1987. It was a fitting reward for his long service to the sport, one in which he still competes at the very top level.
Kenny McCann led them away in the opening heat, but soon lost out to a fast moving Simon Kennedy. Martin was in great form in this one, closing rapidly on the leader and a fairy tale win looked on the cards for a time. He looked outside Kennedy for the victory, but just couldn't make it stick. Kennedy thus claimed first blood of the night after a solid drive, ahead of Mark Heatrick who slipped past Martin late on. Shane Murray just snatched fourth on the line from Jaimie McCurdy in a photo finish. Ian McReynolds led the opening laps of heat two, before losing out to Heatrick at half distance. The damp conditions were making the going tricky, but although Heatrick took the chequered flag he was docked two places for the manner of his pass on McReynolds, handing the win back to Ian over Stewart Doak.
Heatrick had earned himself pole position for the wet final ahead of Martin, with Doak and McCurdy next up. After the initial shake up McCurdy hit the front with Doak in tow, the duo running wet tyres quickly pulling well clear of the rest of the field. They had quite a substantial advantage by the time John Christie established himself in third, and the former World Champion was soon reeling them in in some style. John got past Doak to go second, and closed on McCurdy as a huge gaggle of backmarkers loomed ahead. Jaimie held stern though, taking a deserved victory with Christie superb value in second after a storming drive. Doak, Heatrick, Murray and Glenn Bell filled out the top six.

The 2.0 Hot Rods were on superb form as they contested their King of Aghadowey title, with Stuart Cochrane powering home to win the opening heat from pole position ahead of Adam Best and Feargal McNally. The reversed grid second heat saw Ryan McClure establish himself out front, but he was challenged hard late on by European Champion Stephen Emerson. As Emerson went for the outside pass, the duo drifted wide into the final turn, opening the door for Best to challenge up the inside. The trio raced to the line side by side in a sensational finish, with McClure getting the verdict over Emerson and Best.
Best had annexed pole for the King of Aghadowey final, and duly led them away with Cochrane slipping into second. Cochrane's attempts to grab the lead only succeeded in letting Emerson through to second, and he quickly looked to the outside in his usual style. As he drew alongside Best around the Pit Bend, the duo ran slightly wide and in a flash McNally was up the inside and through to the lead. Feargal reeled off the laps to take the title, with Cochrane grabbing second ahead of Emerson after a pulsating race.

Welcome English visitor Craig Boyd joined the Lightning Rods for the evening, with Portadown's Mark Overend continuing his recent good form by leading the opening heat for the first 15 laps. He lost out to Ally Neill, but the man on a mission was Aaron Stewart as the local ace slipped through for a great win ahead of British Champion Jordan Rochford and Scott Cochrane. Heat two saw Boyd lead the way until two thirds distance, before Mark Corry stormed past to record a morale boosting victory over World Champion Gary Beggs and Rochford.
The conditions had deteriorated by final time, with Neill the early leader before Irish Champion Richard Stewart moved ahead. A fast moving Rochford was soon on his case, Jordan seeing his bid for the lead robustly thwarted by Stewart. Another opportunity arose a number of laps later and this time Rochford made no mistake as he slipped past Richard to take up the running and cruise home to the silverware. Stewart crossed the line second but was docked two places for his over eager initial defence against Rochford, elevating Cochrane and Corry to the podium places.

Although a little untidy at times, the budget Thunder Rods produced three excellent encounters. The opening heat saw impressive recent newcomer Oisin McLaughlin lead the way, before the field came together in the closing stages as the grading system worked perfectly. Daniel Rodgers slipped through to take the win in style ahead of Robert McIlroy and Jason Darragh. McLaughlin again led the way in heat two, with an eager Johnny Pollock charging hard but incurring the wrath of race Control as he did so. Ashley Hawe came through to challenge late on, nipping by within sight of the flag to take the win over McLaughlin and John Goligher.
The final turned out to be another cracker, with a huge battle for the lead for much of the distance. Pollock led initially before Noel Watt took over out front, and then Hawe made his move at half distance to hit the front. He had Rodgers sizing him up though, and the Ballymena driver nipped ahead nearing the end to take a well deserved win and earn himself a rise to the red grade for the next meeting. If you're only going to lead one lap, make sure it's the last one!
