National Hot Rods World Champion Adam Maxwell from Crumlin impressed the huge crowd at the Aghadowey Oval Gala Night by landing an impressive final victory in Hankook Performance Tyres World Series NI Round 7. Adam relegated leader Carl Sloan at two thirds distance to pull clear for a dominant win, whilst the other big winner of the evening was Limavady's Samuel Montgomery who claimed victory in the Thunder Rods Irish Championship. Kells ace Derek McMillan added the King of Aghadowey crown to his huge 2016 collection in the Stock Rods, whilst John Stewart won the DMC Supercup for the Reliant Robins.

A record 21 National Hot Rods arrived to do battle as Hankook Performance Tyres World Series NI reached its halfway point. Amongst the entry was a return to racing for Londonderry ace Davy Gurney in a pristine new Vauxhall Tigra. Philip McCloy led the way in the opening heat, with the pace frantic under the floodlights. He lost out to Andy Stewart, before a quick starting Carl Sloan arrived on the scene. A clumsy moment into turn one saw Stewart spin off, with Sloan getting the nod after a Stewards Enquiry rubberstamped his victory ahead of Jaimie McCurdy and Adam Maxwell. Heat Two was superb stuff, as Sloan ran down early pacesetter Simon Kennedy. Over the last few laps there was nothing between them, before Carl went for an outstanding last gasp bid round the outside on the final lap. They came to the line almost together, with Kennedy getting the nod by just 0.023 seconds!
The impressive Sloan had pole for the final, and as expected surged ahead early on. World Champion Maxwell soon had him in his sights as he came into his own as the race progressed. Adam made his move on lap 20, charging ahead into a lead he wouldn't lose. Sloan was a creditable runner up to bag a whole host of crucial points, whilst Gary Wilson fought a great rearguard action against John Christie to claim third. McCurdy did enough in this one to claim a great win in the season long Cirrus Plastics DMC Race Promotions Points Championship, receiving four new tyres and a fine trophy from the sponsors. It was a top night of National Hot Rod racing which had the huge Gala Night crowd on their toes.

Limavady's Samuel Montgomery mopped up some serious pressure from behind to land the spoils in the Thunder Rods Irish Championship. Having settled into the early lead from pole position, Samuel then had to do it all again when a caution period was called early on for debris on the circuit. At the restart he held off a fast charging Norman Purdy and David Wilson, before another late race caution kept the drivers on their toes. Montgomery produced a text book restart to pull a gap that would see him home to the flag and McCurdy Fuels-sponsored Irish Championship glory. Purdy got the better of an excellent scrap for second ahead of Wilson, with Andrew McLean next up.
The reversed grid Irish Revenge race saw Purdy take the win over McLean and Wilson.

The Stock Rods race action was as tight and competitive as ever, with Jonny Cardwell holding off a spirited challenge from European and Irish Champion Derek McMillan to land the honours in the opening heat, with World Champion Stevie McNiece in third. British Champion Bobbie Johnston had a flag to flag win in the second heat, with William Taggart and an impressive Jonny Gillespie chasing him home.
Curtis Greer's consistency during the heats netted him pole position for the King of Aghadowey final, with McMillan sharing the front row. Greer settled into the early lead, only to get crossed up on the exit of turn four. That gave McMillan an opportunity down the outside and he slipped ahead of Greer into turn one with an excellent move. Cardwell followed him through to second, but he couldn't quite get on terms as McMillan romped to yet another title victory. Cardwell and Greer completed the podium, with Gillespie in fourth.

The opening Reliant Robins heat saw an impressive debut win for Ballymena's David McKinnon, who raced home ahead of John Stewart and Ian Bolton. McKinnon looked on course to repeat the feat in heat two only to spin off in the closing stages, handing the win to Stewart ahead of Bolton.
The final for the DMC Supercup saw a great scrap between McKinnon and Stewart who swapped the lead on numerous occasions. Stewart just got the nod on the final lap, heading home Bolton and McKinnon, only for the latter to earn a technical disqualification for a broken exhaust. That elevated JayJay McConaghie to third.

After the weekend's racing three more NI Points Champions have been crowned in Lightning Rods, Superstox and ProStocks. The final points charts and regradings for these formulas are now available to view.

In the Maxwell Freight Services Lightning Rods NI Points Championship Jordan Rochford has seen his excellent season help him capture the championship victory to add to his British Championship title. Jordan finished with a very healthy advantage over Scott Cochrane and Gary Beggs, and he also leads the charge for 2017 World Final qualification over Ricky Shaw.

In the Superstox it went right down to the final day of the season, but Denver Grattan held his nerve to retain his Gary Jackson Signs NI Points Championship. Gary Chambers finished a creditable second ahead of Jordan Robinson. Grattan also heads the 2017 World Championship qualifying chart after just one meeting.

In the ProStocks European Champion Stephen McCready's great season saw him capture the Raymond Harper Automotive NI Points Championship, ending up with a 60 points advantage over Stephen Boyd with Dan Shannon in third. This chart will form the grid for this Saturday's mouth-watering Irish Championship showdown at Tullyroan Oval.

All our NI Points Champions will receive their prizes this weekend at our two Gala Night fireworks meetings.

Portadown's Wayne Woolsey claimed his fourth 2.0 Hot Rods Irish Championship title with a faultless display at Tullyroan Oval on Sunday afternoon. During an action packed day's racing there was also Irish Championship success for Rathfriland's Ivan Elliott in an entertaining 1300 Stock Cars showdown, whilst Jordan Rochford claimed victory in the Lightning Rods M.O. Auto Repairs Challenge Series. Other final wins at the NW Developments sponsored meeting fell to Aaron McNeilly (Superstox) and Jordan McCann (ProStocks).

The 2.0 Hot Rods Irish Championship saw Wayne Woolsey and Mervyn Emerson share the front row courtesy of points scored during the season. Woolsey quickly stamped his authority on proceedings to edge clear, as Mervyn slumped down the line up as he got stuck on the outside line. Allen Cherry moved to second ahead of defending champion Stephen Emerson and Adam Best as Woolsey edged clear. S Emerson and Best found a way past Cherry to go second and third, but both struggled to make any impact on Woolsey's advantage. Wayne rounded out the remaining laps to take his fourth Irish Championship crown in some style to the delight of his father, legendary racer Norman Woolsey, who was also the meeting sponsor. S Emerson and Best filled out the podium at the end of a thrilling championship race.
The reversed grid Irish Revenge race saw a clear win for BriSCA F2 star man Christopher Kincaid, who powered to a healthy early advantage he would hold all the way home. Best and Feargal McNally came through to second and third after S Emerson was docked from second on the road for contact.

Jon McQuillan and Ivan Elliott shared the front row for the eagerly anticipated 1300 Stock Cars Irish Championship, and it was not to disappoint! McQuillan went ahead as the bumpers were exchanged in no uncertain terms early on, before a caution period was called with Anthony McIvor stranded on the back straight. McQuillan again made good his escape, with Peter Greer and Ivan Elliott settled into second and third, the latter after a great recovery as he had been skittled down the order early on. Willie Stewart and Calvin Blake were getting involved in something of a feud down the pack, and debris from Blake's car saw another caution period with just five laps remaining. With the tension at fever pitch, Greer made his move on the restart to hit the front, but McQuillan was still there and eyeing up a move to regain the lead. He did so with just a lap to go, but heading to the final turn Greer came back in with the bumper to send them both wide to the wall. The raceway opened up for Elliott, and he powered through on the inside to snatch a last gasp victory by the narrowest of margins after a sensational finish! Greer and McQuillan recovered to finish second and third.
The reverse grid Irish Revenge race saw a straightforward win for Stewart, who raced home well clear of McQuillan and Nicky Lowry.

A very encouraging field of Lightning Rods produced some excellent racing, with Jordan Rochford hunting down early heat one leader Alastair Stewart to take the win late on. Mark Overend led the opening ten laps of heat two, but he was helpless to stop an onslaught from Aaron Stewart, who marked his return to action with a solid victory having slipped past Overend at half distance.
Points scored across the three meetings of the M.O Auto Repairs Challenge Series formed the grid for the Grand Final, with Rochford and Mark Corry on the front row. Rochford quickly settled into the lead, with World Champion Gary Beggs in second. The battle for second was a great scrap, with Rochford all the time extending his advantage. A momentary brush with a backmarker had Rochford's fans with their hearts in their mouths, but he held on to race home to a commendable victory, with Beggs and Scott Cochrane filling the podium and receiving race tyres courtesy of the series sponsors.

The Superstox also fielded an excellent grid of cars, including a class debut for Geoff Milligan and a return to action for Gary Grattan. Novice grader Adam Lockhart was the early heat one leader, but Sean Mark soon moved ahead to race home for his first ever victory in the formula ahead of Denver Grattan and Jordan Robinson. Lockhart impressed as he led for over half the heat two duration, but he was unable to hold off a flying Lee Davison who took a polished victory over Denver and Gary Grattan. Denver's second successive runner up spot was enough for him to clinch the 2016 NI Points Championship title.
Lockhart was again the first to show in the final, before losing out to the RCE machine of Aaron McNeilly. Davison was soon through to second, but despite closing the gap to the leader he was unable to get close enough to make contact. McNeilly had driven a terrific race, and he powered home to land his first ever feature race victory over Davison, Denver Grattan and Gary Chambers.

As always the ProStocks were action packed, with Jay White leading much of the way in the opening heat before the star men arrived on the scene with just five laps to go. European Champion Stephen McCready sliced through to the lead, but had Stephen Boyd tracking his every move. Heading into the final turn McCready was all prepared for the big push from behind, but Boyd somehow found a gap on the inside to snatch a last gasp victory. McCready and Robbie Wright filled the top three. White again led the way early in heat two before Del McLaughlin took over out front. McCready was intent in grabbing the win in this one, and he roared ahead to take the flag over McLaughlin and Boyd.
Having not figured at the sharp end during the heats, Jordan McCann immediately caught the eye in the final as he hit the front having demoted White on lap nine. McLaughlin initially held second, but lost out to McCready entering the final stages. Despite McCready's best efforts he had to give best to McCann, who took the flag for a popular win after a very controlled drive. McCready and McLaughlin filled out the podium finishers.

In our latest points update, several more NI Points Championships have now been finalised after our recent meetings.

In the Maxwell Freight Services Stock Rods NI Points Championship, European and Irish Champion Derek McMillan has added another title to his collection with victory over Marc Morrell and Shane McMillan. Derek also leads the way in the quest to qualify for the 2017 World Championship, ahead of his brother Shane and Ed Davis.

In the 1300 Stock Cars, Belfast driver Jon McQuillan has been crowned Rainey Racing NI Points Champion after a marathon season across all three circuits. Jon finished with an almost 100 point advantage over Ivan Elliott, with Curtis Greer in third spot. This chart also forms the grid for the upcoming Irish Championship at Tullyroan, whilst Jon also leads the way in the 2017 World Championship qualifying chart ahead of Elliott & Nicky Lowry.


In the competitive Thunder Rods division, Limavady's Samuel Montgomery has won a hard earned N Purdy & Sons NI Points Championship, edging home ahead of Andrew McLean by just five points with Ryan Campbell in third. This chart will also form the grid for the Irish Championship at Aghadowey Oval on Gala Night.

After a tense season long tussle in the Wash 'n' Dash NI Points Championship for Junior Productions, Drew McKeown has been crowned champion just ahead of Irish Champion Shea Duff. It was a tremendous season long scrap between the duo, with Matthew Nicholl coming home in third spot.

Finally, the ASC Cars of Ballymena NI Points Championship for the Ninja Karts saw a clear victory for Irish Champion Stewart Hanna, as he ended up with a 50 point advantage over runner up Lily Gallagher whilst Sam Percy and Corey Stirling tied in third position.

All our NI Points Champions will receive their prizes over the Hallowe'en weekend at our two Gala Night fireworks meetings.

Birches based Irish National Banger Champion Dave Haugh scored another big success at Tullyroan Oval on Sunday when he was victorious in the annual Nutshaker event. Amidst the carnage on the raceway he roared home to a tremendous win in his Lexus. The day's other main event, the ProStocks Golden Helmet, fell to Glenavy's Dan Shannon whilst Graham Meek was a deserved winner of the Junior Productions 1ke Engineering Young Guns Series. Other feature race wins fell to Nicky Lowry (1300 Stock Cars) and Stewart Hanna (Ninja Karts).

The Unlimited National Bangers Ray McGrath Transport sponsored Nutshaker event has become almost the property of Coleraine's Kieran McIvor in recent years, as he was chasing his sixth consecutive win in the event. The writing looked to be on the wall for the rest when Kieran drew pole position, only for mechanical trouble to sideline him before the race even started. That opened the door for Dave Haugh to surge ahead, tracked initially by Dublin's Stevo McGrath. McGrath was eliminated, before a race stoppage for a huge wreck on turn one for Brian Smyth who was followed into the wall at full speed by Steven Bolton. It was a huge crash, and luckily Smyth emerged unscathed. At the restart Haugh again built an advantage, racing home to victory ahead of Bolton and Jonny Murdock.
McIvor had made good his problems in time for the Allcomers event, and he easily took the win over Bolton and Murdock. An entertaining Destruction Derby for the Stephen Bannon Memorial Trophy ended in a dead heat after a huge head on impact between Willy Ogilby and Liam Johnston, with both declared joint winners.

The ProStocks were back in action just hours after Leonard Dunn had claimed the World Cup title at Aghadowey on Saturday evening. Curtis Gillis headed heat one off before Ashley Hawe took over out front, and despite a late charge from Irish Champion Dan Shannon, Hawe held on for the win with returnee Adrian McKinstry in third. Hawe went ahead in heat two to chase a repeat victory, but he had no answer to the flying William McFaul, who went ahead with just five laps remaining. McKinstry and Jordan McCann completed the placemen.
There was drama before the final got underway as front row qualifiers Hawe and McKinstry both hit trouble and didn't make the start. That left McCann and Shannon sharing the front row, but they both got shuffled out of contention in the early laps as the bumpers were put to good use. McFaul went ahead but Shannon soon appeared back in second to take the challenge for the lead to him. They swapped places a number of times before Shannon made good his escape to successfully defend his Golden Helmet crown. McCann challenged McFaul late on for second, but McFaul held on for the runner up trophy with Stephen Boyd snatching third ahead of McCann.

The opening Junior Productions heat saw a number of incidents which eliminated Sam McNeice, Adam McFall and Josh Rogers. Through the melee Adam Weir hit the front and raced to a great win over Drew McKeown and Irish Champion Shea Duff on the road. The second heat was all about Gareth Halliday, as he romped to a great victory over Weir and McFall. That race was marred by a clash between star drivers McKeown and Duff, which left Drew with a damaged car and Shea disqualified for his part in the incident.
The Grand Final of the 1ke Engineering Young Guns Series was lined up in points order from throughout the series, with David Gurney the man who had the most points and claimed pole position. Graham Meek made a storming start from the outside of the front row to surge into the lead, with Halliday coming through for second ahead of a huge battle for third between Gurney, Weir, McFall and Matthew Nicholl. Gurney got tossed aside which earned Weir a disqualification, but that was of little interest to Meek who reeled off the remaining laps to take the Young Guns title and the biggest win of his career to date in some style. Halliday and Nicholl completed the top three who each received race tyres courtesy of sponsors 1ke Engineering.

The rough and tumble 1300 Stock Cars were slightly down in numbers following their Irish Open Championship exploits the previous weekend, but they still managed to produce three thrilling races. Calvin Blake held off a spirited charge from Jon McQuillan and Aaron Rainey to land the opening heat victory, before repeating the dose in heat two with another controlled drive to victory lane. He disposed of early leader Nicky Lowry to hit the front, and when demoted by star man McQuillan, Calvin hooked him round onto the infield to take an excellent win and earn a rise to the red grade for the final. Rainey and Lowry filled the top three.
With Blake starting further back for the final, Lowry took his opportunity to build a clear early advantage ahead of Michael Logan. There were plenty of blows being exchanged in the pack, with McQuillan riding the wall on more than one occasion. Lowry had all under control and took a tidy victory and the 1ke Engineering trophy ahead of Rainey and Blake.

The opening Ninja Karts heat saw a spirited drive from Lacy Bevan who led right until the lap boards came out. She was then swallowed up by a fast charging pack of star drivers, with Jack Morrow nipping past Jay Clyde to take a superb win, with Clyde second and Corey Stirling in third. Bevan again led the second heat, before losing out to a fast moving Daniel Stewart. Stewart took the victory in great style ahead of Clyde and Lily Gallagher.
Matthew Weir showed well at the start of the final, leading for a number of laps until Stewart took over out front. There was a tremendous battle amongst the star graded drivers, in particular Gallagher, Morrow and Irish Champion Stewart Hanna. Gallagher broke clear to chase down Stewart, but Hanna was soon involved in the lead scrap too and found a gap on the inside to take a tremendous win in his first meeting sporting the green roof of Irish Champion. Gallagher and Stewart completed the podium finishers.
Many thanks to our meeting sponsors, Ray McGrath Transport & 1ke Engineering
