A fantastic evening of racing was served up at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday night, with all five formulas on show producing healthy grids and excellent on track action. Enniskillen's Stevie McNiece was victorious in a closely fought second round of the Stock Rods PC Paints & Components Challenge Series, whilst Birches star Robbie Wright claimed the spoils in the second round of the 1300 Stock Cars Ryan Wright Signs Iron Man Series. Portadown's European Champion Jordan Rochford took a fine win in the Lightning Rods, with the other feature races at the Dungannon Hot Tub Hire sponsored meeting falling to Cavan's Stephen Clarke in the Rookie Bangers and young Portadown star Max Hobson in the Ninja Karts.

The Stock Rods again broke the 20-car barrier, with some tight racing on a packed raceway. Robert McIlroy set the pace in the opening heat before losing out to a fast charging Mark Overend. The Portadown driver sped home to his first ever win in the formula, holding off McIlroy and Gary Butler at the flag. McIlroy bounced back to take a flag to flag win in the second heat, with Overend again impressing in second ahead of Ryan Murphy, with former World Champion Stevie McNiece catching the eye as he made progress to sixth from the rear of the grid.

The final paired heat winners McIlroy and Overend on the front row, and after an electric start McNiece moved ahead to the lead in front of the novice graded drivers. Stevie pulled off a great save early on as he got well out of shape on the exit of turn four, before a caution period for a turn one incident. McNiece pulled clear on the restart, with a great battle ensuing behind between Shane McMillan, Jonny Cardwell and Curtis Greer. McNiece romped home to the win ahead of Cardwell and Greer, with all three receiving great prizes from series sponsor Rodney Wallace of Ballymoney based PC Paints & Components.

For the Lightning Rods it was their final meeting before the World Championship is staged at Aghadowey Oval next month, and as always there were plenty of talking points amongst the healthy line up. Dylan McCann led the majority of the opening heat from the front of the grid, but he lost out to eventual winner Mark Corry late on, with Richard Stewart slipping through to second. Stewart pressurised the leader late on, but it was Corry who took a morale boosting win. Stewart then went one better in heat two, relegating early leader Adam McCann to take a clear victory over Nigel Jackson and the excellent new car of Tam Agnew.

Adam McCann led the opening laps of the feature race final, before Agnew slipped ahead. The track was becoming very slippery indeed as oil went down, with European Champion Jordan Rochford hitting the front at the half way mark. Heavy backmarking traffic saw Irish Champion Jackson whittle down Rochford's lead, but Jordan held on to take a fine victory over Jackson and Aaron Brunton. It was just reward for Rochford and his team who had changed an engine after problems in practice.

For the 1300 Stock Cars it was Round 2 of the Ryan Wright Signs Iron Man Series, with a new race tyre up for grabs for the winner. Recent newcomer Darryl McAleese led them away in heat one, before Josh McKinstry soared past to take the chequered flag. He had been away much too quick at the green flag though, and was docked two places in the final analysis which handed the win to Jamie McCann ahead of McAleese. Heat two saw McAleese relieved of the lead by Gary Elliott, and it was he who raced home to the win over Robbie Wright and
McAleese.

The final saw the drivers line up with the highest points scorer to the front of their grade, and again the start would prove crucial. Elliott was past McAleese and into the lead during the first lap, but attracted a warning from Race Control for jumping the start. Gary held on all the way despite the rapid Wright closing in. Robbie went for a do or die last bender but wasn't just close enough, but the Stewards then handed him victory as Elliott simply had to be penalised for his early getaway at the race start. Wright inherited the win ahead of Michael Logan, with Elliott having to make do with third.

A fantastic field of 24 Rookie Bangers came under starters orders for their first heat, with Peter McConnell going ahead early on before a stoppage when Dwayne Lynch went for a rollover on the home straight. At the restart Rab Wharry was spun from second place as McConnell went on to take the flag. Afterwards though he failed the post race checks on a technical issue and was disqualified from the meeting, which elevated Stephen Clarke to the race win ahead of Conor Finegan and Stephen Murray. The action came thick and fast once again in heat two, with Stephen Murray this time a clear winner amongst the carnage around him. Clarke and Finegan filled out the top three.

Reigning points champion Sammy Fisher worked his way through to the lead in the early stages of the final before he found trouble on the back straight, which eliminated him from proceedings. Again it was an action packed thriller, with Murray and then Clarke hitting the front. Bailieborough driver Clarke was in control though, racing home to victory over Murray and Eugene Cadden at the end of another great night for the formula.

Completing the programme were the Ninja Karts, and the young stars served up three excellent races. Lexi Crooks led the opening heat before losing out to a flying Lauren Berry. Lauren went on to take the win which made amends for her disappointment at the last meeting which she spun from the lead of the final. There was a nasty accident on the run to the flag for Odhran Monaghan, but after being carefully extracted from his kart by the track staff and St John's Ambulance crew he was absolutely fine. Behind winner Berry, Lacey Bevan and Max Hobson completed the top three. Leyton Hughes showed a great turn of speed to lead the second heat before losing out to Crooks who powered home to take the second win of the evening for the girls. Bevan was once again second ahead of Hobson.

Hughes and then Crooks were at the head of the field in the final, before a caution period when Ryan Berry and Hughes collided on the Annaghmore Bend. The drivers all took their first ever rolling start excellently, with Hobson then tearing around the outside to take a fantastic victory over Crooks and Rhea McConkey. Lexi also received a special award for the top white or yellow grade finisher courtesy of sponsors Dungannon Hot Tub Hire.

Young Sam McNeice was victorious in the Junior Productions Tullyroan Challenge Cup during the midsummer race meeting at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday night, the young Toomebridge star taking the flag in style for his first major title victory in the formula. Cloughmills racer Sean Mark took his first ever feature race win in the Superstox, whilst other final winners at the George Fegan Tyres of Belfast sponsored event were Joe Largey (ProStocks), Stuart Cochrane (2.0 Hot Rods) and Clive Richardson (Classic Hot Rods).

The reversed grid qualifying procedure was in place for the Junior Productions Tullyroan Challenge Cup, with Ballymena’s Adam McFall making good his escape to take a clear victory in heat one after a great drive. Behind Adam, Sam McNeice outfoxed the battling Adam Weir and Drew McKeown to snatch second on the line. Heat two saw Matthew Nicholl drive an excellent race to hold off McNeice for the win, with Graham Meek and McKeown next across the line.
The final paired McNeice and Nicholl on the front row, with Sam soon settling into the prime position out front. McKeown came through to second but had Nichol all over his back bumper for most of the race. At the head of the field though McNiece was edging clear, and he stormed home to lift the Challenge Cup after a dominant performance. He was followed home by McKeown and Nicholl, with all three presented with their trophies by BTCC superstar Colin Turkington.

An excellent showing of seventeen Superstox included very welcome English visitors Chris and Dan Roots, and they were to play a huge part in the night’s proceedings. David Beattie led the opening heat for much of the duration from the white grade, before losing out to a fast charging Chris Roots. Local form man Lee Davison was quickly onto the leader’s tail as the laps dwindled down, with Lee trying a last bend lunge for the win but Chris held on to take the first chequered flag of the night. Beattie again led much of the way in the second heat, but this time it was Dan Roots who arrived to challenge in the closing stages. Dan moved ahead to take a morale boosting win ahead of his father Chris, with Davison in third.
The final again saw Beattie set the pace, until the charging duo of Sean Mark and James Turkington bumpered their way past to the lead. Davison was showing some great pace once again, and he slipped past into the lead before disaster struck with the flag in sight. A puncture ended his hopes, and Mark accepted the gift of the lead and raced home to his first ever final win. Turkington and Dan Roots completed the podium finishers. A Dash 4 Cash concluded the night, with Beattie hanging on out front to take the win despite Mark’s late charge on an oil covered surface.

Irish Champion Dan Shannon and Joe Largey swapped the lead back and forth in the opening ProStocks heat, with Shannon ahead when it mattered to take the win. Stephen Boyd was the winner in heat two, fending off Steven Haugh at the line.
The Tullyroan Challenge Cup Final saw Boyd on pole from Shannon, and it proved to be an absolutely terrific race. Haugh found himself out front and he and Shannon traded blows and the lead on a number of occasions before Largey joined the fun too. There was a different leader every lap for some time, and they even went down the back straight three abreast at one stage! Largey eventually was able to edge clear to take a truly great win, with Shannon snatching second on the line thanks to a late lunge at Haugh.

Ryan McClure was the star turn during the 2.0 Hot Rods heats, the local driver powering past leader Michael Woods on the outside to take the opening heat win over Irish Champion Glenn Bell who had a great battle with Stuart Cochrane. Woods again led in heat two, before being bundled out of the lead by contact from the pack. McClure assumed the top spot, and took the flag over Allen Cherry and Cochrane. Cochrane was elevated to second ahead of Bell when Cherry was docked for the contact earlier in the race.
Woods again impressed from the novice grade in the final, leading the way before losing out to Colin McFarland. Cochrane had got the break from the star grade, and he quickly swooped past to take the lead and the win in some style ahead of Bell and Mervyn Emerson.

The small field of Classic Hot Rods were joined by a number of cars from other formulae for three invitation races, including the National Hot Rods of John Christie and Ian McReynolds. Clive Richardson took the opening heat in his Mk2 Escort, before his son Joel took the honours in heat two. Damien Corrigan led the final, but had no answer to the pace of Clive Richardson as he raced past to take his second win of the evening.

The latest formulas to have points updated are the Junior Productions, Ninja Karts and 2.0 Hot Rods.

In the Junior Productions A McKeown & Son NI Points Championship, defending champion Drew McKeown heads the chart just a slender three points ahead of Adam McFall, with Sam McNeice just behind in third.

The ASC Cars NI Points Championship for Ninja Karts sees Irish Champion Daniel Stewart well clear at the top of the standings, with Max Hobson giving chase in second ahead of Lacey Bevan and Lauren Berry.

Finally, the 2.0 Hot Rods Hoosier Racing Tire Challenge Series sees round two winner Adam Hylands now clear at the head of the field with Stuart Cochrane and Adam Best second and third.

All five formulas on show at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday evening produced some ultra competitive race action on a warm summer’s evening blighted by one heavy shower. Former Irish Champion Richard Stewart from Aghadowey took a fine win in the Lightning Rods Tullyroan Challenge Cup, while Portadown’s Adam Hylands was victorious in the second round of the 2.0 Hot Rods Hooiser Racing Tire Challenge Series. Young Ryan Berry took his first ever race win as he claimed the Ninja Karts Golden Helmet Award, whilst Chris Hamill celebrated a heat and final double in the Stock Rods and Irish Champion Drew McKeown claimed the Junior Productions honours at the DRS Steelbuildings sponsored event.

Another very healthy field of Lightning Rods assembled to contest the Tullyroan Challenge Cup, with Scott Cochrane taking the first heat win in an event which saw a heavy shower hit the circuit mid race. Long time leader Mark Corry was bundled out of the race which earned Jonny McMillan a disqualification, but Cochrane coped admirably with the tricky conditions to take the win over Stephen Hollywood and Ricky Shaw. The reverse grid second heat saw Irish Champion Nigel Jackson take the win, overcoming some heavy pressure from Richard Stewart and a late race caution too.
Stewart and Cochrane shared the front row for the final, with Stewart assuming the lead with Cochrane and Jackson for close company. Cochrane glanced the home straight wall and lost a wheel to bring about a caution period, but Stewart wasn’t to be denied as he romped home to a fine victory over Jackson and Jordan Rochford.

A depleted field of 2.0 Hot Rods arrived for the second round of the Hoosier Racing Tire Challenge Series. Davy Potter set the pace for much of the opening heat until Adam Hylands found a way past in the closing stages. The robust move caught the eye of the Race Stewards with Hylands fortunate to keep the win over Allen Cherry and Potter. Heat two wasn’t without controversy too, as long time leader Thomas Morrison lost out when the leaders encountered a backmarker at just the wrong time. Adam Best claimed the win over Hylands and Stuart Cochrane.
Hylands had annexed pole spot for the final, and went on to lead from flag to flag despite the close attentions of Best in second. Hylands received a new Hoosier race tyre courtesy of the series sponsors, with Best and Cochrane rounding out the podium.
During the meeting Hylands was also presented with the National Hot Rods Hankook Performance Tyres World Series NI Shield after he won the season long points chase in the elite formula on the Ulster ovals.

The Ninja Karts saw a debut for Lexi Crooks, with Irish Champion Daniel Stewart snatching the win in the closing stages after a great effort from long time leader Lauren Berry, who had to settle for second ahead of Max Hobson. Stewart again took the win in heat two, with Lauren Berry again in second ahead of Andrew Hawe.
The final for the Golden Helmet Award saw Lauren Berry set the early pace as she chased her first ever race victory, leading her brother Ryan initially. Stewart was on a charge but Lauren was driving the race of her life to hang on to her advantage. Disaster struck at the start of the last lap though as she spun out, receiving a glancing blow from Hobson. The reds came out immediately to check on Lauren, who emerged unscathed to a tremendous ovation from the crowd for her efforts. The one lap dash to the flag saw Stewart lead them off, but Ryan Berry made a great start to slip past into the lead. As they entered the final turn there was contact between the two leading karts, with Stewart coming through to take the flag. The Stewards had no option but to impose a penalty on Daniel, handing the win and the Golden Helmet trophy to a delighted Ryan Berry for his first ever race victory. Lacey Bevan inherited second with Stewart demoted to third place.

A great turnout of Stock Rods saw Chris Hamill demote Robert McIlroy just after half distance to take the opening heat victory, with McIlroy holding on for second ahead of Mark Overend. Overend then had a spell out front in heat two before losing out to Samuel Montgomery as a great race developed at the head of the pack. Formula debutant Matthew McKinstry then produced a great drive to nip ahead and take a great win over Gary Butler and Curtis Greer.
It was hard work for the top stars once again in the final from the rear of the line up, with McIlroy going ahead for the first ten laps. By that stage Hamill had relegated his fellow yellow graders to take the challenge to the leader, and he duly slipped by to record a sublime heat and final double and with it earn a grading rise for the next meeting. Butler again impressed in second ahead of a fast charging Shane McMillan and Stevie McNiece from the star grade.

The Junior Productions saw James Stewart have his best meeting to date, and he led the opening heat when they were brought to a halt for a caution period. James led the rest of the way home but was unfortunately docked for jumping the restart, something that had been a topic in the pre-race drivers briefing. That elevated Matthew Nicholl to the win over Adam Weir, with Stewart having to make do with third spot. Former Ninja Karts star Aaron Ward took a handsome flag to flag win in the second heat, leading home Nicholl and Adam McFall.
Stewart again impressed as he led the opening exchanges of the final, even overcoming a mid race caution which brought the field onto his tail. He continued to drive very well until Nicholl found a way past in the closing to take the chequered flag. The Stewards weren’t happy with his pass on Stewart and Matthew was unfortunately docked two places in the final analysis, handing the victory to Irish Champion Drew McKeown ahead of Sam McNeice and Nicholl.
