A pulsating evening's racing at Aghadowey Oval on Saturday night saw Waringstown's Ben McCully take the biggest prize on offer, the coveted William Cooke Memorial Cup for the Stock Rods. Crumlin's Shea Duff was the winner of the Junior Productions King of Aghadowey crown after an action packed series of races, whilst other winners at the S McAfee and Son sponsored meeting were Jordan Rochford (Lightning Rods), Andrew McLean (Thunder Rods) and Steven Bolton (Reliant Robins).

European Champion Derek McMillan drew pole position for the opening Stock Rods heat, with British Champion Bobbie Johnston returning to the scene of his recent triumph and starting alongside. Derek set the pace with Bobbie right on his tail during what was a ding-dong battle. Derek put in a stout defence of his place to take the win in a very close encounter, with Johnston, Shane McMillan, Ben McCully and Marc Morrell all right there in a blanket finish. The reverse grid second heat saw McCully go ahead early on and take the win over the impressive Marc Morrell and Rod Fleck, with Johnston catching the eye on his run to fourth from the back.
McCully and Johnston qualified on the front row of the grid for the William Cooke Memorial Final, with Bobbie putting in a commendable effort on the outside for the opening laps before dropping back down the train. Derek McMillan came forward to challenge the leader, but he couldn't match McCully's pace as brake problems intervened. Ben was on top form, and duly pulled away to take the chequered flag and the trophy by a distance over Derek McMillan and Morrell. The magnificent William Cooke Memorial Cup was presented to a delighted McCully by Rallycross ace Don Shannon.

The Junior Productions stars were also using the reverse grid heat system as they contested the 2016 King of Aghadowey. Adam McFall failed to get away at the green flag at the first time of asking in heat one, causing all sorts of problems and forcing him out of the restart. Sam McNeice set the early pace but lost out to a flying Irish Champion Drew McKeown. As Drew pulled clear to the win, fellow star Shea Duff nipped past McNeice on the line to snatch second place. The second heat also took two attempts to get started, and with the rain making the going very slippery pole man Matthew Nicholl showed them all a clean pair of heels as he took a pleasing victory over McFall and Duff.
From pole position Duff set the pace in the final, with McFall, David Gurney and McKeown chasing hard. A fraught couple of laps put paid to the chances of a number in the chasing pack, bringing out the caution flags too. Duff led them away once again ahead of McFall and Graham Meek, but despite pressure from those behind Shea held on to take a deserved and popular victory. McFall was great value in the runner up slot, with Meek also doing well in third ahead of Gareth Halliday and Jack Hazlett. No doubt there will be a strict drivers briefing before the upcoming Irish Championship to try to stop the enthusiasm of the young stars from boiling over again.

A good field of Lightning Rods produced some excellent racing, with novice grader Mark Overend impressing to lead over half the duration of the opener. Fellow Portadown man Alastair Stewart stormed past to take the win, with Overend well pleased with second ahead of Ricky Shaw and British Champion Jordan Rochford. Overend again set the pace in heat two, before this time Shaw powered past to take a morale boosting win from Rochford and Cochrane.
Chris McGirr led the opening exchanges of the feature race final, before Ally Neill moved ahead challenged by Shaw and Stewart. Cochrane challenged Stewart only for Alistair to shut the door hard but too late, resulting in him taking a spin round the pit turn and triggering a huge crash that left World Champ Gary Beggs with a badly damaged car indeed. In the midst of it all Rochford, who had been on scintillating form all evening, hit the front to record another impressive victory over a hard trying Shaw and Cochrane.

Returnee Jerome Doherty led the Thunder Rods opener away before losing out to eventual winner Peter Henderson. Doherty held on for second with Andrew McLean in third. In heat two it was a flying Norman Purdy who edged past Doherty to the lead, only to lose out to Henderson as he took his second win of the night to earn a promotion to the blue grade for the final. Purdy, McLean and Samuel Montgomery filled the places.
The final was fraught early on, with Purdy nudging his way past Henderson and Chrissy Dempsey doing likewise early on. Both attracted black cross warnings from Race Control, and despite the duo pulling well clear by the chequered flag, both were duly docked two places each for the contact. That elevated McLean to a welcome victory over David Wilson in second.

Portadown's John Stewart took victory in the opening heat for the Reliant Robins over Haley Bevan and Ian Bolton, with John again in charge in the second heat too to rack up his double. Having hit problems in the opening heat, Steven Bolton dashed home for a replacement engine and duly had it fitted in time for the final. He made his efforts more than worthwhile by storming to a dream win ahead of his father Ian and Stewart.

Spedeworth / HRP / DMC Rule Amendments as follows:-

In the current Superstox rules it states that you must have 13mm nuts & bolts holding on the front bumper.

It has come to our attention that you cannot get 13mm nuts and bolts anymore.

Therefore, we are coming up with a minimum of 12mm. We cannot go upto 14mm because a lot of the cars would not be able to get these size nuts and bolts to fit without grinding the head of the nuts or bolts so we feel it is safer to now say that you must have the minimum of 12mm nuts and bolts holding the bumper on.

Wheel studs must be level with the wheel nut or protruding slightly through. It will be the scrutineers’ discretion as to whether the studs are protruding through too far and you may be asked to cut them flush.

Rumours about rule changes:-

None of the rumours about rules which I am thinking about changing are 100% in place. These rumours are ‘feelers’ to get feedback from drivers and car builders for their opinions.

The only rule which will come into effect from 2017 is the ‘inch offset from the centre line’.

All the rest of the rumours are for feedback for information only. I am attempting to get a meeting together with car builders to try and make the formula more even.

Anyone can feel free to ring me or preferably email me with their thoughts and suggestions for the future of Superstox. I can be contacted by calling 01252 322920 or email:- deane@spedeworth.co.uk

Portadown ProStocks World Champion Steven Haugh had a successful trip to Lochgelly Raceway in Scotland at the weekend, when he successfully defended the British Championship title that he won last year at Aghadowey Oval.

The heats fell to Scotland's Ricky White and our own Dan Shannon, with Haugh carding fourth and sixth to leave him in fine fettle for the final. The British title decider was a frenetic race, with Haugh charging through to take the chequered flag in some style ahead of White and another DMC star Leonard Dunn. European Champion Stephen McCready and Shannon finished fourth and fifth respectively.

The following day the Scottish Open Championship was up for grabs, and that saw a welcome return to form for Dungannon's former World Champion Ryan Abernethy as he took the victory. Attention for all the ProStocks stars will now turn to the World Cup which will be defended by Haugh at Aghadowey Oval in October.

The main event at Lochgelly was the Superstox Championship of the World, which was won by regular Ulster visitor Jason Cooper ahead of Bryan Forrest and defending champion Chris Bradbury. Irish Champion Denver Grattan took a creditable fourth position.
