The young 6-11 year old stars in the Ninja Karts stole the show at Tullyroan Oval on Sunday afternoon, providing some exciting championship racing during the meeting. Antrim’s Leyton Hughes took the Champion of Champions title against a quality international field, whilst Kilmore’s Ryan Berry raced home to land the Individual Achievement Award. Ellis Snow from England then took the honours in the feature final at the end of the afternoon.
Amongst the other race action Portadown’s World Champion Nigel Jackson claimed the Lightning Rods Tullyroan Challenge Cup, Fionn Donnelly from Meath took the 1300 Stock Cars Ryan Wright Signs Iron Man Series Grand Final and Matthew McKinstry won a destructive Back to Basics Bangers final. The other winners at the meeting, sponsored by Midway Autopoint, Stirling Trophies and Hollytree Rare Breeds Farm, were Randalstown’s Sam McNeice in the Junior Productions and Birches driver Steven Haugh in the Superstox.

First up for the Ninja Karts was the Individual Achievement Award for those drivers yet to win a race in 2019. It was Ryan Berry who scorched away early on and was never caught as he took the win and the coveted shield ahead of Andrew Hawe and Riley Dawson-Stirling. That victory earned Ryan his entry in to the Champion of Champion event, which also boasted some very rapid English and Scottish visitors. Irish Champion Leyton Hughes was the one to watch as he raced clear for another impressive title win, with Berry excelling to hold onto second over the battling Toby Tyson and Finley Kew.

For the rest of the afternoon English driver Ellis Snow showed the others a clean pair of heels as he took victory in both the support heat and final, leading home Ryan Abernethy Jnr and Hawe in the feature race.

Strabane’s James McKinney took the opening heat for the Lightning Rods over World Champion Nigel Jackson, before Jackson starred in the slippery conditions he enjoys so well to take the second heat win over Ally Neill and Ronan McNally. The Tullyroan Challenge Cup final saw Jackson on pole and he was never headed as he took the title over McKinney and Vince Litter.
1300 Stock Cars
The heats for the 1300 Stock Cars were shared between Jack Kearney and Fionn Donnelly, the latter after on the road winner Josh McKinstry was docked two places for a jump start. They then lined up on aggregate series points order for the Grand Final of the Ryan Wright Signs Iron Man Series, with Nicky Lowry and Donnelly occupying the front row. A false start was called when Donnelly was much too quickly away at the first time of asking, and at the second attempt pole man Lowry got a puncture and was in big trouble straight away. Gareth Halliday then burst ahead early on, before Donnelly and then McKinstry had turns out front. Just as McKinstry looked the odds-on winner, Donnelly fought back and took the series win over McKinstry and Willie Stewart. The top three all received vouchers for race tyres courtesy of the series sponsors.

Another healthy field of Back to Basics Bangers produced three entertaining events, with the opener falling to John Goligher after he slipped past early pacesetter Stefan McClelland. Heat two saw all sorts of action around the track, with Goligher again slipping ahead to take the win over Tyler Goligher and McClelland.
The final was a bruising affair to say the least, with McClelland, Stephen Boyd, David Gurney and Tyler Goligher all having spells in the lead. Matthew McKinstry then hit the front and took the victory with there being no other classified finishers!

A trio of welcome newcomers in Abbie McKinstry, Hannah Monaghan and Matthew Weir bolstered a very healthy field of Junior Productions. Shane O’Connor and Sam McNeice clashed whilst disputing the lead in the opening heat, allowing James Stewart through to win over Mark Crawford. Heat two ended in controversial fashion, with star trio McNiece, Crawford and Sam Percy all docked by the stewards for jumping a restart, which handed a first ever Junior Production win to a delighted Lexi Crooks.
O’Connor led the way in the final, but this time McNeice made no mistake as he raced past to take a deserved win. Impressive novice graders O’Connor and Chelsy Rainey took second and third respectively, ahead of a relegated Crawford who again fell foul of a restart penalty.

Ed Davis took a clear win in the opening Superstox heat over Jordan Robinson, before Robinson went one better in heat two by taking the win over British Champ Lee Davison and Irish Champ Kyle Beattie.
The final though was all about Steven Haugh, as the former ProStocks multi-champion finally put his Superstox troubles behind him to land the victory at a canter. He finished well clear of runner up Davis, and Steven could well be one to watch in 2020.

It is with regret that DMC Race Promotions announce that the ProStocks formula will not be continuing with us in 2020. For ten years the formula was one of the success stories on our circuits with some huge turnouts, but recently numbers have dwindled to a level that we can no longer sustain going forward. A number of the drivers currently racing have also indicated that they will be competing in other formulas next season, so we have unfortunately decided not to offer dates to the class in 2020.

The ProStocks have produced some fantastic racing, and a number of major champions, since being introduced back in 2009, and we hope that the current drivers can use their machinery in the Rookie Bangers formula with a little modification, or indeed sell them to Scotland where the formula will continue.

The ProStocks have now been removed from our Tullyroan Oval fixture on December 29th, and will be replaced by the 2.0 Hot Rods.

DMC Race Promotions would like to thank all the drivers who have competed in the formula over the last decade, contributing to some very memorable racing.

At the end of another successful season on the DMC Race Promotions circuits, we have rounded up a number of points charts.

In the Cirrus Plastics DMC Race Promotions Championship for National Hot Rods which runs over the calendar year, Glenn Bell ran out victorious ahead of Shane Murray and Adam Hylands. Glenn received his magnificent rrophy from Alvin Doak of Cirrus Plastics at Aghadowey Oval on Friday night, and also receives 4 new Hoosier slick tyres.

The National Bangers NI Accident Services Entertainers League continues on until the Big Vans at Christmas time, and Leaonard Dunn currently tops the standings ahead of Tony Gillespie and Stevo McGrath. Saturday night past was the first round of the 2019/20 DMC Race Promotions Championship which runs until the 2020 Unlimited World Final. Newly crowned 2L Irish Champion William McFaul leads the way early on ahead of Rodney Herron and Karl Smyth.

For a number of our other classes, the so called 'off season' becomes very important as that is when valuable World Championship qualifying points can be banked. At this stage the various leaders are: Derek McMillan (Stock Rods), Lee Davison (Superstox), Adam Best (2.0 Hot Rods), Nigel Jackson (Lightning Rods) and Robbie wright (1300 Stock Cars).

The Tullyroan Oval Gala Night produced fireworks on and off track in front of a large crowd of race fans on Saturday evening. The 2L National Bangers Irish Championship fell the way of Kilrea’s William McFaul after a cracking race whilst Antrim’s Leyton Hughes won the Ninja Karts Irish Championship and Portadown’s Sam Stewart took the honours in a thrilling ProStocks Irish Championship showdown. The NIOvalTV Superstox Series came to a thrilling climax as Portadown racer Jordan Robinson took the honours in the ShootOut final, whilst the other winner at the Hollytree Rare Breed Farms sponsored meeting was Aghadowey’s Richard Stewart in the Lightning Rods.

An excellent field of 2L National Bangers lined up to contest their Irish Championship, with defending champion Leonard Dunn the first to show before Adam Maxwell took over out front. Maxwell pulled clear only for Karl Smyth to take him out in spectacular fashion on opposite in the turning zone on the Annaghmore Bend. That handed the lead to William McFaul, and he survived a late attack to hang on for the victory. Dunn and Paul Compelli completed the top three.
The Allcomers was a very lively affair indeed, with big hits and all sorts of action all around the track. Dunn was on the warpath stopping anything he came across, and it was Dublin’s Stevo McGrath who took the victory over Rodney Herron and Smyth.

The Stephen Bannon Memorial Destruction Derby rounded off the evening, and once again it was an entertaining affair. It boiled down to McFaul, Phillip Farrell and Rodney Herron, with McFaul getting the win after stopping the other duo.

The Irish Championship is the biggest event on the domestic calendar for the young aces in the Ninja Karts, with Leyton Hughes getting the jump at the green flag to head Ryan Berry and fellow front row starter Max Hobson early on. Hobson then had a huge crash out onto the back straight, bringing out the caution flags. At the restart Hughes again pulled clear, with Odhran Monaghan now in second and trying with all his might to reduce the gap. Hughes had all in control though, and Leyton came home to land the biggest win of his short career in some style. Monaghan and Andrew Hawe completed the podium.

For good measure Hughes then took the opening support heat from the rear of the grid over Hawe and Berry, before the second heat fell to Monaghan after a great drive to lead home Berry and Hughes.

The ProStocks may be down in numbers in 2019, but they never fail to produce the goods when titles are up for grabs. The Irish Championship race was an absolute thriller, with plenty of contact and lead changes throughout. Steven Haugh led early on before Dan Shannon attacked for the lead, with blows exchanged between all the front runners which also included Joe Largey, William McFaul and Sam Stewart. Lap after lap the advantage swung from one to the other, with some telling blows leaving a number of cars carrying damage. It was Stewart who emerged from the entertainment to take a fantastic victory, with David McKinnon and McFaul picking up the podium places.
The Reversed grid Irish Revenge race fell to Largey after Stewart had led most of the distance.

It was Round 3 of the popular Superstox NIOvalTV Series, which was then to be followed by the ShootOut final with a number of race tyres up for grabs courtesy of the resident DVD team at DMC Race Promotions. David Beattie revelled in the greasy condition to take the heat one win over Ed Davis and Keith McAreavey, before David repeated the feat in heat two to take the flag ahead of British Champion Lee Davison and Darren Bevan.
An upgrade for the final didn’t deter Beattie at all, as he again rushed to the front and took the honours. Bevan kept his honest all the way home, with Darren also picking up the top white/yellow grade driver award. Star men Beattie and Davison were next home.
The top six on aggregate points from across the series then gridded for the six car, six lap, Series ShootOut final, although Bevan was out before it started with mechanical issues. It was an action packed and entertaining event indeed, with leader Davison unable to shake off Jordan Robinson and Ed Davis. Twice Lee was unceremoniously dumped in the wall, as Robinson powered through to take a great victory. Davison came across the line second but suffered a technical disqualification courtesy of a trailing wheel guard, handing the runner up spot to Davis ahead of Keith McAreavey.

In his favoured slippery conditions, World & Irish Champion Nigel Jackson accounted for the wins in both Lightning Rods heats. In the opener he led home James McKinney and Ally Neill, before Aaron Brunton and Neill filled the places in heat two.
The final saw Richard Stewart get a great break early on, and he soon demoted Brunton from the lead. Jackson worked his way through to second, but it was Stewart who rounded off the season with a fine win. Jackson and Neill completed the podium places.
Many thanks to our meeting sponsors, Hollytree Rare Breeds Farm
