On a night of excellent racing at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday, Portadown's Glenn Bell was victorious on the National Hot Rods Ulster Championship, whilst Ballymena's Victor McAfee took victory in a closely fought Stock Rods Irish Championship. Another Portadown driver, Jordan Rochford, took victory in the Grand Final of the Lightning Rods 2ke Engineering Challenge series, whilst other winners at the Hankook Performance Tyres sponsored 'Hot Rod Heaven' meeting were Stephen Emerson (2.0 Hot Rods) and Thomas Dilly (Classic Hot Rods).

Glenn Bell beat Shane Murray away at the green flag to take up the running in the opening National Hot Rods qualifier for the first running of the Ulster Championship, the 2012 World Champion storming home to a great win over NI Champion Shane Murray and Gary Wilson. The reversed grid heat two saw a win for Adam Hylands, with Derek Martin keeping him honest all the way home in second ahead of Jaimie McCurdy and British Champion John Christie.
Bell and Hylands shared the front row for the Hankook Ulster Championship final, with McCurdy and Christie on row two ahead of Murray and Martin. Bell led them away, and despite the best efforts of Hylands, Glenn was able to edge clear out front. The pace under the lights was fantastic, as Bell stormed home to take the inaugural Ulster Championship victory over Hylands, Murray, Martin and Christie.

On points scored during the 2017 season, Jonny Cardwell and Victor McAfee occupied the front row for the 2017 Stock Rods Irish Championship. Cardwell settled into the lead with McAfee tracking his every move, until they entered the closing stages of the race. Cardwell ran wide into turn one, handing the lead to McAfee as some fluid on the raceway made the going somewhat tricky. Cardwell came back to challenge, with contact into turn three sending McAfee wide. Cardwell assumed the lead once again and led home McAfee, with Shane McMillan right there challenging too during the final laps. A lengthy Stewards Enquiry followed as the track videos were viewed, and Cardwell was unfortunately demoted two places handing a seventh Irish Championship victory to McAfee ahead of McMillan, with Cardwell in third.
A messy start to the reversed grid Irish Revenge race saw impressive recent newcomer Sam Wilson out front early on, before former World Champion Stevie McNiece found a way past on the inside line to record a clear win. Cardwell fought through from the rear to take a creditable second ahead of McMillan and McAfee.

The climax of the popular 2ke Engineering Challenge Series for Lightning Rods saw two heats before the Grand Final was lined up in aggregate points order from across the series. Tim Hazlett was the star turn in both heats, running down long time leader Dermot Tynan in the opener to take the win over Aaron Brunton and Mark McCambridge, and then cruising home to another victory in the second over Vince Litter and Brunton.
The final saw star men Jordan Rochford and Scott Cochrane on the front row on aggregate points, with Rochford quickly settling into the lead. As Cochrane's challenge faded, Ricky Shaw came through to chase the leader, but Rochford held on for the win despite his car ailing with engine problems over the final laps. Jordan took the 2ke Engineering Challenge Series trophy and two new race tyres ahead of Shaw and Richard Stewart.

Thomas Morrison led the opening heat for the 2.0 Hot Rods, before being challenged by Aaron Beattie. Former European Champion Stephen Emerson quickly moved through to second before a late challenge for the lead saw Morrison spin out and Emerson subsequently disqualified. Adam Best came through the chaos to take the win over Stuart Cochrane and Ryan McClure. Morrison put things to right with a fine win in heat two despite the pack closing near the end, Thomas leading home Sean Dynes and Beattie in this one.
Morrison again led them away in the final, with an early caution period wiping out his advantage. He led again on the restart but was challenged by Beattie, who forcefully made his way past to the front. Emerson was one to watch again in this one, slipping past Sean Dynes to go second and challenge Beattie for the top placing. Beattie held on to take the flag, but was subsequently docked two places for the contact which removed Morrison from the lead. That handed victory to Emerson ahead of Dynes and the relegated Beattie.

The latest round of the Dilly Roofing Supplies NI Series for Classic Hot Rods saw Gerry Rothwell and Adrian Boyle from the Republic of Ireland join the local stars, with Gary O'Neill the winner of the opener over Thomas Dilly, after second on the road Clive Richardson was disqualified for contact on Dilly at the start of the race. O'Neill again triumphed in the second heat in his Anglia over Dilly and Richardson, before it was Dilly who raced home to the feature race final victory over O'Neill and Rothwell. Thomas then kindly presented the new race tyre for winning the final, sponsored by his own company, to novice grader Boyle.

On a night of thrilling championship action at Aghadowey Oval on Saturday night, England's Ian Beaumont was the big winner when he scooped the 2017 National Championship for 1300 Stock Cars. There were also two coveted Irish Championship titles on offer, with Denver Grattan completing a hat-trick with his third Superstox triumph in as many years whilst Daniel Stewart won a nail biting Ninja Karts Irish title. Former World Champion Stevie McNiece took the honours in the William Cooke Memorial Trophy for Stock Rods with David Wilson a worthy winner in the Thunder Rods at the meeting kindly sponsored by S McAfee and Son of Ballymena.

A fantastic field of 1300 Stock Cars, including visitors from England and Scotland, arrived to do battle for the National Championship. Norfolk's British Champion Will Morphey was the first to show in the opening heat, before he lost out to his younger brother Charlie. This was Charlie's first ever meeting in the formula having just graduated from the junior Ministox formula in England, and the 16-year-old sensationally held on to win his first ever race in the senior ranks! Nicky Lowry came through for second after a great drive with Ivan Elliott in third. Like the opening heat, the second qualifier was full of action all around the raceway. This time Lowry was in total control as he took the honours. Will Morphey produced a perfectly timed hit on Michael Logan on the last bend to snatch second place in style.
Lowry had gained pole position for the National final, totally surrounded by the visiting Morphey family with Charlie, Will and George next on the line up. It was always going to be a frantic first turn, with Lowry well and truly despatched to the wall, ending his chances. Through the chaos came the World Champion Ian Beaumont, slipping past to take up the running and edge clear. Even a mid-race caution period couldn't halt his charge to the National title, Ian taking the double chequers to add another championship to his impressive CV. Will Morphey got the better of a great scrap with Lincolnshire's Dan Booth for second, with Charlie Morphey, George Morphey and top local finisher Calvin Blake rounding out the top six.
The last race of the evening was for the prestigious John Griffiths Memorial Trophy, and yet another action packed encounter saw Beaumont again take the victory over George Morphey and Blake, with all three receiving some excellent prizes courtesy of the McCrory and Griffiths families.

Denver Grattan and Lee Davison shared the front row for the Superstox Irish Championship, with Grattan leading the way early on before a yellow caution for Gary Chambers stranded on the Brown Trout Bend. Grattan again took the initiative out front at the restart, with Davison staying with him but just not close enough to land a telling blow. Denver powered home to his third Irish Championship triumph in as many years, with late drama seeing Davison lose second as he tripped over a backmarker. Stephen Stewart and Gary Grattan thus rounded out the podium places.
The reverse grid Irish Revenge race saw recent newcomer Brian Lammey the polesitter, but he got caught up with a number of cars on the opening lap allowing Gregg Hyndman to charge clear. Davison was soon on his case though, Lee slipping past to take victory over Aaron McNeilly and Stewart.

Daniel Stewart and defending champion Stewart Hanna occupied the front row for the coveted Irish Championship for the Ninja Karts, and the duo went on to produce a breathtaking race. There was never anything between them at all as the jostled nose to tail throughout the encounter. It was Stewart who got clear nearing the end to record a fantastic victory over Hanna, with Max Hobson producing the drive of his short career to take third position.
The reverse grid Irish Revenge race saw Stewart spin out early on as Jack Morrow set the initial pace. Hanna was soon on his tail though, with the duo swapping and changing the lead over the closing laps. Hanna just got the verdict on the line for a great win, with Morrow and Hobson next up.

The Stock Rods were utilising the reverse grid qualifying format for the coveted William Cooke Memorial Trophy, with Stevie McNiece taking the honours in the opener ahead of Shane McMillan and Ryan Murphy, after Derek McMillan was dropped two places from second for contact on Jonny Cardwell. Defending trophy holder Ben McCully led the second heat away, but lost out mid race to World Champion Marc Morrell who stormed home to the win over McCully and Victor McAfee.
McNiece and McAfee shared the front row for the Memorial Trophy final, with a very interesting side note that Cardwell and McAfee were now just one point apart going into what was the final points scoring race of the Maxwell Freight Services 2017 NI Points Championship. As McNiece pulled clear to record the win, Cardwell sensationally retired handing the points initiative to McAfee. Disaster struck for Victor though just a few laps later though, as he too hit mechanical gremlins which handed the NI Points title to Cardwell by the narrowest of margins. McNiece was a proud winner of the William Cooke Memorial Trophy, with Morrell and Shane McMillan completing the podium.

The Thunder Rods completed the programme with three thrilling races, each led away by newcomer Adrian Hillis. It was William Donnell who surged through to land the opening heat win over Ashley Hawe and Noel Mark, with Gareth Robinson the man to beat in heat two as he recorded a great win from the star grade over Donnell and Jason Darragh.
Hillis and Hawe disputed the lead in the feature race final, sponsored by S McAfee and Son, before David Wilson arrived on the scene after a great charge. The Cullybackey man took the win in fine style ahead of Hawe, Hillis and Robinson.
