Latest News
On a damp and dreary night at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday, the on track action lifted the spirits of the hardy race fans who were served up some fantastic racing. Crumlin’s Adam Maxwell took a decisive win in the tenth round of National Hot Rods World Series NI, whilst Portadown’s World Champion Nigel Jackson took his new BMW to victory in the Lightning Rods Tullyroan Challenge Cup. Kilrea’s Zack McCombe was a deserving winner in the Thunder Rods category, with other feature race wins falling to Antrim’s Stephen McCcready in the 1300 Stock Cars and young Dungannon lad Ben Hawe in the Ninja Karts.

The National Hot Rods headlined the programme as they competed in Round 10 of Simpson Race Exhausts World Series NI. Derek McMillan was the star turn in the heats, the Kells driver making great use of his yellow grading to take a clear heat one win over Ian McReynolds and Ben McKee. The second race of the evening again saw McMillan triumphant, this time ahead of a chasing Adam Maxwell and Barry Stephen.
McMillan again hit the front early on in the feature race final, pulling out quite an advantage in the first half of the 35 lap event. McReynolds, Carl Sloan and then Barry Stephen all had turns at chasing the leader down, but late on Maxwell emerged as the main contender. The 2016 World Champion came into his own in the closing stages, and when he finally got onto the tail of the leader McMillan could offer little resistance. Maxwell charged through to take a great win, with Stephen and McMillan completing the podium.

The Lightning Rods excelled all evening in the difficult conditions, with the new for 2022 tyres providing excellent racing on the tricky track surface. Mark McCambridge initially led in the opening heat before World Champion Nigel Jackson stormed through for the victory in his new BMW , just pipping McCambridge for the win ahead of Jordan Rochford in third. James McKinney took a clear win in the reversed grid second heat, with Jackson returning to second in this one ahead of Mark Corry and Stuart Agnew.
The early sort out in the final made excellent viewing, with McCambridge getting ahead initially as Jackson struggled from pole position. Agnew soon went ahead with Jackson in pursuit, and there then followed a fantastic cat and mouse game as the duo raced together whilst utilising different lines in the wet conditions. Just as it looked all over, Agnew tripped over the backmarking Corry on the back straight on the final lap and then ended up spinning him into turn three. He just got across the line still ahead of Jackson and McCambridge, but after a very lengthy Stewards Enquiry Agnew was docked two places for the last bend contact which elevated Jackson to the win. McCambridge was elevated to second, with Agnew having to make do with third after a fine drive that deserved more.

An outstanding 26 cars took to the track in the Thunder Rods, with the action was as frantic and exciting as everyone expected from a grid of that size! The racing was dominated by the lower graders all evening, with Clifford Gordon and Matthew Nicholl battling hard for the opening heat win. They swapped the lead and then raced to the line neck and neck, with Gordon getting the verdict by the very slenderest of margins after a near dead heat. Heat two saw Nicholl this time take a deserved win, with Gordon in second ahead of Rab Preston.
The final saw another novice grader, Zack McCombe, get his nose ahead early on, and despite the best efforts of the rest to get on terms he ran out a deserving winner for the second meeting in a row. Gordon had to settle for second once again ahead of an impressive run from Darryl McAleese to third.

Once again the 1300 Stock Cars thrilled all evening, with bumperwork galore thrilling the fans. A recent regrading certainly seemed to help the racing, with action aplenty in heat one as Josh McKinstry took the win over Matthew Milliken and Chris Hamill. Heat Two saw a sensational finish, as Simon Lamont got the better of a last bend sort out that also included Milliken and McKinstry.
The meeting final started off with a huge four car shunt out onto the back straight, with everyone thankfully coming off unhurt after they all got turned hard left into the wall. After a caution for debris from the incident, Milliken took up the lead but in the closing stages had Stephen McCready and Irish Champion Hamill breathing down his neck. As expected the bumpers went flying in on the final turn, and it was McCready who took a superb win ahead of Hamill and Milliken after a stunning finish!

The young drivers in the Ninja Karts coped superbly with the wet conditions all night, with Ben Hawe slipping past long time leader Jack Morrison to take the opening heat over Keegan Turtle. Turtle went one better in heat two as this time he led Hawe home in another great race.
Morrison again impressed as he led the final early on, but Hawe was on a mission once again and he finally grabbed the lead after a great tussle. Ben then went on to wrap up his double for the day with a fine victory. Morrison, Turtle, Noah Teggart and Riley Dawson-Stirling completed the top finishers.

An action packed night of Stock Car Racing was enjoyed by a very healthy crowd at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday evening, with excellent car numbers in every formula on show.
Portadown driver Scott Cochrane was victorious in the opening round if the Hoosier Challenge Series for 2.0 Hot Rods, whilst Loughgall’s Jamie McCann came through for the final win from a record breaking field of Superstox. Garvagh’s Stephen Boyd enjoyed a heat and final double in the entertaining Rookie Bangers, whilst Rathfriland’s Jack Morrow won the first ever Moffett Shield for Junior Productions. An action packed 1300 Stock Cars final rounded off the programme, with the win falling to Antrim’s Stephen McCready.

A twenty car field of 2.0 Hot Rods lined up for their opening heat, with Scott Cochrane coming through a somewhat untidy race to take victory over Conor Hughes and Denver Grattan. Heat two saw the McFarland father and son duo, Colin and Dean, make great strides away from the front of the field, with Dean taking an impressive win over his father in a family one-two.
The final was the opening round of the Hoosier Challenge Series, and it was Cochrane who impressed as he romped home to take the win and a new race tyre courtesy of the series sponsors. Drew McKeown held onto second after a long Stewards Enquiry into the race, with Michael Woods, Gary Fowler and a demoted Hughes next home.

A stunning grid of 26 Superstox took to the track for their opening heat, but they didn’t get very far until a huge cartwheel down the home straight for former World Champion Lee Davison. Thankfully Lee was able to walk away without injury. On the resumption, David Beattie came through to take the win having punted Steven Haugh wide on the final turn in perfect stock car fashion. Heat two saw Alan Haugh this time the man to beat, the former ProStocks star pulling clear to take the win over Curtis Greer and Beattie.
A full grid of cars under the floodlights really was an awesome sight, as the Superstox really have underlined their tag of one of the best formulas on the local ovals. Alan Haugh set the early final pace, but he lost out to a fast charging Jamie McCann. McCann was carrying some great pace, and he took an impressive victory over Craig McConnell and Beattie.

The Rookie Bangers arrived in big numbers once again, with some excellent racing all evening. It was action galore in the opening heat with crashes and spinners galore. Garvagh’s Stephen Boyd took the win ahead of Marc Morrell, before former Stock Rods World Champion Morrell took his first Bangers win in the second heat after an impressive drive. Josh Goligher and Ian Crowley filled the places.

The final was another thrilling race, with reigning Points Champion William McFaul getting out front early on. He then got himself involved with a backmarker and lost his chance, allowing the chasing bunch to take over. Lucas Goligher, Josh Goligher and Boyd contested the lead over the final laps, with Boyd taking the win in a thrilling finish ahead of Lucas Goligher and Sean Ryan.

The inaugural staging of the Moffett Shield for Junior Productions was a great success, with another fine field of cars taking to the grid. Daniel Stewart won the opening heat over Callum Doak, before the Portadown lad repeated the feat in the second heat with Doak again second ahead of Ryan Berry.
The final was lined up on aggregate points, which brought the star drivers closer to the head of the grid. Rathfriland’s Jack Morrow wasted little time in getting his nose ahead, and he romped home a clear winner to receive the magnificent shield from the Moffett family. Stewart was second and received the best white/yellow grade award, with Berry and Doak next in the result after a total of three disqualifications as driving standards slipped.

Once again the 1300 Stock Cars entertained all evening, with hits and places exchanged constantly throughout all of the races. Young Ty Richardson was the star of the heats, the novice grabbing both heat wins without being challenged. It was a different story in the pack with some frantic racing, with Robbie Wright and Simon Lamont getting second and third in the opener before Stephen McCready and Wright followed Ty home in the second heat.
An automatic elevation to yellow grade for the final saw Richardson’s initial advantage reduced, but he still looked odds on for the win before mechanical trouble intervened. That opened the race right up to the squabbling pack, with McCready getting the deserved win after a great drive ahead of Lamont and Jonathan Brown.
