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.

There have been points updates for both National Hot Rods & ProStocks.

In the Cirrus Plastics DMC Race Promotions Points Championship for National Hot Rods, leader Jaimie McCurdy has seen his advantage at the top of the table reduced after mechanical problems at Tullyroan Oval last Saturday night.

Glenn Bell & Keith Martin are also in with a mathematical chance of taking victory, so a real final round shootout lies in store!

Stephen McCready is the top dog in the ProStocks Raymond Harper Automotive NI Points Championship, holding a substantial 56 point advantage over second man Stephen Boyd, with Dan Shannon in third. The next outing for the ProStocks is of course the World Cup at Aghadowey Oval on October 15th, and there is already a strong Scottish contingent booked in to appear.

Two Irish Championship titles were on offer during Saturday night's race action at Tullyroan Oval, with Kells driver Derek McMillan landing the Stock Rods crown and Crumlin's Shea Duff the Junior Productions version. Local Tullyroan driver Allen Cherry took an emotional victory in the Lee Cherry Memorial Trophy for 2.0 Hot Rods, whilst Portadown's Adam Heatrick (National Hot Rods) and David Wright (ProStocks) were also feature race winners.

A sensational start to the Stock Rods Irish Championship final saw front row starters Derek McMillan and Marc Morrell set a blistering pace side by side for the opening number of laps. It was fantastic stuff, with Morrell edging ahead into the lead. As track conditions dried, McMillan came to the fore and reeled in Morrell before slipping back to the lead. Derek held sway out front right to the end to add the coveted Irish title to the European title he won earlier in the season, and in emphatic style too. Morrell held on for second ahead of Dublin's Gary Butler, with British Champion Bobbie Johnston in fourth.
Later in the evening the Irish Revenge reverse grid race fell to Willie Taggart, with Morrell and Butler again impressing on their way to second and third respectively.

The stars of the future in the Junior Productions also staged a fantastic Irish Championship encounter. Rivals Shea Duff and Drew McKeown shared the front row, with Duff the first to show in the lead. McKeown was embroiled in a great scrap also involving Adam McFall and Matthew Nicholl, with some three abreast moments that had the crowd holding their breath! McFall departed as he clouted the turn one wall, and at the restart Nicholl caught Duff napping to hit the front, only for Shea to come right back at him before another caution for a stranded Joel McPeake. At the resumption Duff edged clear to race home for the biggest title victory of his career, with Nicholl and McKeown completing the podium. Adam Weir received an award as best White or Yellow Grade driver.
The Irish Revenge race later in the evening fell to McPeake after a fine drive, the young Ballymena ace holding off McKeown and Ben Bruce all the way to the chequers.

The magnificent Lee Cherry Memorial Trophy was the prize on offer to the 2.0 Hot Rods on Saturday evening, with Wayne Woolsey racing clear in the tricky conditions to take the first qualifier of the event held in memory of the former racer. Allen Cherry, cousin of Lee, drove an excellent race to second ahead of Sean Dynes. Jason Devlin drove one of his best races for some time to stamp his authority on the second heat, holdimg on for a great win over Adam Best and Woolsey.
Woolsey quickly hit the front in the Lee Cherry Memorial Final, only to lose out when contact from the pack behind shifted him wide. That opened the door for Allen Cherry to power ahead, and despite the close attentions from behind he held on all the way home for a very emotional victory indeed. The Cherry family then presented Allen with the fantastic prize, as 'one of their own' took victory in the inaugural running of the event. Woolsey and Devlin took second and third respectively, with Best demoted to fourth for contact.

Round five of the National Hot Rods Hankook Performance Tyres World Series NI saw a first ever win in heat one for Armagh's Conor McElmeel after a fine drive, ahead of World Champion Adam Maxwell and young Jaimie McCurdy. Maxwell went one better in heat two, taking the win over Dungannon's Derek Martin and Portadown ace Glenn Bell.
A drying track with only one optimum line was always going to make for a dramatic final, with Maxwell the first to show before getting shuffled down the pack. That allowed Bell to surge ahead, but he had a flying Adam Heatrick on his case .Eight laps from home Heatrick made his move for victory and challenged for the lead, racing home to the win over Bell and Lurgan's Ian McReynolds.

The Grand Final of the McElmeel Mobility Services Supreme Series was the main event for the ProStocks, with Lee Booth the early pacesetter in the first heat before Jordan McCann slipped through to take the win over Irish Champion Dan Shannon and Stephen Boyd. Heat two saw a clear win for European Champion Stephen McCready over Irish Open Champion Leonard Dunn, which guaranteed McCready pole position for the Grand Final on aggregate points gained over the series.
McCready made no mistake at the start of the feature race, taking the lead with Boyd in second. Boyd whittled down McCready's advantage, and as they headed to the final corner he went in with a do or die lunge to unseat the leader. Both went wide, opening the door for Davy Wright to come through to snatch a sensational win by a matter of inches at the line. Boyd and McCready took second and third at the end of a truly entertaining encounter.
