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.

Donemana driver Leonard Dunn was literally on top of the world at Aghadowey Oval on Saturday night when he was crowned ProStocks World Cup Champion after a sensational night's racing. Competing against a full field of the formula's best racers, Leonard powered ahead halfway through the final to land the sport's biggest prize. An action packed evening's racing also saw local Aghadowey man Richard Stewart crowned Lightning Rods Irish Champion, with Banbridge's Denver Grattan also claiming Irish Championship glory in the Superstox. The MR Fabrications Challenge Series for Stock Rods fell to Derek McMillan of Kells, with Ballybogey's Norman Purdy taking a clean sweep of both heats and the final in the Thunder Rods.

A large field of ProStocks arrived to do battle for the RRE Recovery sponsored World Cup, the formula's premier race of the season. The drawn grid for heat one saw Ballymoney's Steven Bolton set the early pace, before Robbie Wright went ahead chased by Scottish star Paul Barron. European Champion Stephen McCready quickly disposed of Barron to go second before nudging past Wright to take a great win. Garvagh's Stephen Boyd came through for second in a dramatic finish ahead of Adam White and Wright.
Scotland's Ricky White led the opening eight laps of the reversed grid second heat, but he soon had defending World Champion Steven Haugh tracking his every move. Haugh went in with the bumper to take up the running, but soon had his mirrors full of Irish Champion Dan Shannon. Dan slipped past on the inside on the Brown Trout Bend to take a popular victory over Haugh and Ricky White, with Leonard Dunn catching the eye in fourth.
McCready and Adam White headed the line up for the World Cup final, ahead of Ricky White and Shannon on row two and Boyd and Robbie Wright on row three. After a great build up the atmosphere in the stadium was at fever pitch as the cars set off on their rolling laps. The opening lap was outstanding, as McCready settled into the lead with Dunn and Raymond Gurney coming through to second and third after the initial shake up. A couple of caution periods raised the tension even more, and at half way Dunn made his move for the lead with a telling blow on McCready. Despite McCready's best efforts to get back on terms, there was no stopping the flying Donemana man Dunn as he swept home to the biggest win of his career and the gold roof for the next twelve months. McCready was a gallant second, with Robbie Wright getting the better of William McFaul on the last lap to grab an impressive third spot. It was an excellent night's entertainment from the ProStocks, with Dunn deservedly crowned World Champions after a sterling drive.

A wet but drying track greeted the competitors in the Lightning Rods Irish Championship, leading to plenty of guessing as to set up on their cars. British Champion Jordan Rochford led them away from pole position, with former Irish Champ Scott Cochrane challenging hard on the outside early on. World Champion Gary Beggs then moved to second, looking for a way past Rochford on what was a very slippery track indeed. From a lowly grid position Richard Stewart soon moved into contention, finding grip where others were struggling to make a serious bid for the lead on the outside. He drew himself alongside Beggs and then Rochford before surging ahead into the top spot. There was no stopping Stewart, who took the chequered flag and the Irish title after a tremendous drive, with European Champion Nigel Jackson and Beggs inheriting second and third after Rochford was unfortunately dropped two places for contact in the final stages.
The reverse grid Irish Revenge race was a walk in the park for Jackson from the front row of the grid, leading home an impressive Ricky Shaw and Mark Corry. Aggregate points lined the up the King of Aghadowey final, with Jackson storming away into an early lead ahead of Beggs and Shaw. Despite things closing considerably nearing the end, Jackson was in control all the way home to take a stylish victory over Beggs and Shaw.

The Superstox Irish Championship took a few attempts to get going, with Jordan Robinson, Stephen Stewart and Aaron McNeilly all finding themselves hard in the turn one wall at the first time of asking. A complete restart was called, only to see another turn one fracas, this time involving Stewart, Lee Davison, Gary Chambers and Adam Lockhart. When we finally got underway Banbridge's defending Irish Champion Denver Grattan surged ahead, with Jack Gilpin and Graham Fegan filling out the top three. As Grattan stayed clear and in charge of proceedings, Fegan went in hard on Gilpin into turn three to take over in second. Grattan romped home to a dominant and deserved second Irish title in a row, with Fegan and Gilpin filling out the podium.
From the front of the grid Fegan made no mistake in the reverse grid Irish Revenge Race leading home Grattan and Lee Davison at the flag. In the graded order meeting final, Cyril Hawe initially led before Davison came roaring past and on to the victory. Grattan and Chambers took second and third respectively after Fegan retired from the runner up slot late on.

The Grand Final of the MR Fabrications Challenge Series was the main event for the Stock Rods, with Kells driver Shane McMillan quickly stamping his authority on the opening heat to take a commanding win over Steve Gooch and British Champion Bobbie Johnston. The second race of the night was a controversial affair, with the top two on the road, Ed Davis and Gooch, both falling foul of the powers that be for contact during the event. Both were demoted two places, handing another win to McMillan ahead of Curtis Greer.
Total points from throughout the series formed the grid for the final, with pole position falling to European and Irish Champion Derek McMillan ahead of Jonny Cardwell, Shane McMillan and World Champion Stevie McNiece. The initial start was aborted after some drivers found themselves in all manner of problems, before Derek McMillan powered ahead at the second time of asking to take control of proceedings. As Derek ticked off the laps to another major win, a huge battle ensued for second, which finally fell to Johnston on the road. He was docked two places for contact though, handing the runner up slot to Davis with Marc Morrell taking a spirited third place after a good drive from down the grid. The top three all received Yokohama race tyres courtesy of generous series sponsors, MR Fabrications.

Norman Purdy turned out to be the star turn in the Thunder Rods, going through the entire meeting unbeaten. Jerome Doherty led the opening heat until Purdy scythed past to the front, Norman reeling of a comfortable win with Davy Wilson in second. John Goligher looked very quick in his new car, but was docked from third to fifth for contact, elevating Andrew McLean to the top three. An untidy start to heat two saw a number of cars receive warnings from Race Control for contact. It was one of those drivers, Chrissy Dempsey, who took the chequered flag on the road, but he was subsequently docked to third which handed the win to Purdy over McLean.
Not even an upgrading to red grade for the final could stop Purdy, as he went ahead of Doherty on lap 13 to press ahead and lead all the way to the flag. A late caution for Ryan Campbell in the wall on the Brown Trout Bend closed the field up, but Purdy made no mistake to lead home Wilson and Josh Goligher.

England's Adam O'Dell was the star at Tullyroan Oval on Sunday afternoon, the Bedfordshire driver taking victory in the 1300 Stock Cars Irish Open Championship after a great afternoon's racing. Limavady's Stewart Hanna took victory in the day's other big event, the Ninja Karts Irish Championship, whilst Annaghmore's Joel Richardson scooped the lucrative Hoosier Racing Tyres Supreme Series for the 2.0 Hot Rods. Joel's Uncle, Jeff Richardson, was victorious in the Classic Hot Rods, with the Junior Productions feature race falling to Drew McKeown.

The local 1300 Stock Car regulars were joined by four visiting racers, two from England and two from Scotland, for the coveted 2ke engineering sponsored Irish Open Championship. The opening qualifier saw Ballymena's Peter Greer surge clear early on, with Newtownabbey's Calvin Blake tracking his every move. Blake made his move and took up the running nearing the end, just as Willie Stewart and British and National Champion Adam O'Dell arrived on the scene. They bumpered past to the lead, with O'Dell making a last gasp bid for the victory. He spun Stewart out of the last bend, but the Nutts Corner driver held on, crossing the line sideways for a sensational win! O'Dell, Blake and Greer filled the other top places. It was all action again in heat two, with plenty of contact to keep the fans happy. Blake hit the front but lost out to Greer, as many eyes were fixed on a pulsating battle between O'Dell and Stephen McCready. As Greer took the win, O'Dell and McCready settled for second and third.
Aggregate points saw O'Dell on pole position for the Irish Open final ahead of Greer, Blake and McCready. Adam quickly made good his escape, with all manner of action going on behind him. It was excellent stuff indeed, and even a couple of caution periods couldn't deter O'Dell who pulled off two excellent restarts to keep the pack at bay. He raced home to a clear win to lift the Irish Open Championship title, with Scotsman Andy Mathieson coming through for second ahead of Blake and Jon McQuillan.

The biggest domestic race of the year for the Ninja Karts, the Irish Championship, was lined up in points scoring order from throughout the 2016 season. Stewart Hanna led them off ahead of Lily Gallagher, before an early stoppage with Jay Clyde and Daniel Stewart in the turn four wall. Hanna again set the pace out front at the restart, before another stoppage when Corey Stirling was spun by Jack Morrow which also involved and eliminated Gallagher. Morrow was excluded from the restart for his part in the incident, with Stirling fortunate to get his place back for the restart as the order was taken from the last completed lap. Hanna rounded off the remaining laps to take a superb Irish title win, with Stirling in second and Sam Percy third, after Bobby Henderson was unfortunately excluded from third for a technical infringement. Lacey Bevan and Curtis McConkey took the awards for best white and yellow grade finisher respectively.
The reverse grid Irish Revenge race saw a tidy victory for Aaron Ward, who held on all the way home ahead of a fast closing Morrow and Stirling. The 0-60 Fitness Most Improved Driver award went the way of Matthew Weir.

It was great to see five novice graders lining up at the front of the 2.0 Hot Rods opening heat, with Gary Thompson and Aaron Beattie disputing the early lead. Thompson was showing very well indeed, but soon had the rapid Wayne Woolsey on his tail. Disaster struck Thompson at just the wrong moment as he had a huge engine problem which handed the lead and the win to Woolsey after a caution period to mop up fluid on the raceway. European Champion Stephen Emerson and Beattie filled out the top three. Beattie held the early advantage in heat two, before another engine blow, this time for Jason Devlin, which saw Christopher Kincaid spin out on the oil. Joel Richardson and Woolsey demoted Beattie to hit the front, with Woolsey finding a way past towards the end to take another victory, with Richardson and Emerson taking second and third.
Aggregate points from across the Hoosier Racing Tyres Challenge Series formed the grid for the Grand Final, with Richardson and Woolsey sharing the front row. They immediately settled into first and second, with Woolsey looking faster and climbing all over the Richardson car. Joel was totally in command though, controlling the pace and leaving no opportunity for Woolsey to get past. Despite Wayne's best efforts, it was Richardson who took a faultless victory over Woolsey and Emerson, with all three receiving tyres from series sponsor Hoosier.

A pleasing ten Classic Hot Rods took to the grid, with Damien Corrigan the early heat one leader in his Mk1 Escort. Jeff Richardson wasted little time getting on terms and then past, taking a fine win over Podge McQuaid and Gary O'Neill. Corrigan was again the first to show in the second race of the day, with McQuaid and O'Neill giving chase. National Champion Clive Richardson was quickly in the midst of the lead battle, scything through to the lead and ultimately the win in great style. Irish Series Champion Thomas Dilly and Trevor Cusack rounded out the top three.
McQuaid demoted early leader Corrigan in the final, before Jeff Richardson powered past into the lead in his Mk2 Escort. His brother Clive was coming on strong once again, but he just ran out of laps as he fought to get on terms out front. Jeff Richardson rounded out the Classic Hot Rods season with a great win, ahead of Clive Richardson and Cusack, after third on the road Dilly was demoted two places for contact.

The young stars in the Junior Productions rounded out the programme, with Adam Weir showing great skill to lead the opening heat all the way from flag to flag ahead of Gareth Halliday and Matthew Nicholl. Halliday went one better in the second heat to record a morale boosting win, with star men Drew McKeown and Shea Duff coming through to second and third respectively after runner up on the road Nicholl was dropped two places for contact.
The final saw Josh Rogers and then Halliday take turns in the lead, before things got a little busy at the sharp end. Weir slipped through to the lead after harrying Halliday for a number of laps, but McKeown then found a gap inside Weir to take up the running and race home to a great victory. Halliday and Weir completed the podium at the end of another good outing for the junior stars.
