Garvagh’s Johnny McCloy was the toast of Aghadowey Oval on Saturday evening as he scooped victory in the Grand Final of the 2.0 Hot Rods Hoosier Tyres Series. It was a very enjoyable night of oval racing action, with Ballymena driver James Goldie another big winner as he claimed victory in the King of Aghadowey title for the Thunder Rods for the third year in a row.
Young Leyton Hughes was once again victorious in the Ninja Karts, with fellow Antrim man Stephen McCready the winner in the all-action 1300 Stock Cars. Nutts Corner racer Mark Crawford rounded out the victors with a faultless hat-trick in the Stock Rods.

Eighteen 2.0 Hot Rods saw an opening heat win for recent returnee Kris Fitzpatrick, the Lisburn man racing home ahead of Michael Woods and Johnny McCloy in a great finish. Fitzpatrick repeated the feat in heat two for another win, with Davy Kernohan and Woods this time the place men in what was a frantic and action packed encounter.
The Grand Final of the Hoosier Tyres Challenge Series saw McCloy on pole position courtesy of his points tally across the series with Drew McKeown alongside. Johnny controlled the race right from the off, pulling clear to take a fantastic win ahead of Wood and Gary Butler. The top three all received new race tyres courtesy of the series sponsors, Hoosier UK.

A fantastic entry of 25 Thunder Rods arrived to do battle for the King of Aghadowey title, with Portadown’s Sam Preston the heat one winner ahead of Andrew McLean and James Goldie. Heat two saw Mark McLaughlin and Jason Darragh battle out front before they tangled and lost out, opening the way for Ricky Bradley to take the win over Chris Baird and Adam Graham.
Ballymena men Graham and Goldie shared the front row for the final, with Graham losing out early on as he ran into mechanical issues. That left Goldie holding sway out front and he came home to land the King of Aghadowey crown for the third year in succession. Dean Catherwood just held off McLean after a great battle for second, with Preston and Baird rounding out the top places.

As has been the norm of late, the 1300 Stock Cars were spectacular all evening with three superb races. The bumpers were put to full use, with no quarter given and certainly none expected from the drivers! Gareth Halliday led early on in heat one before Jon McQuillan forced his way past to take the win, with Chris Hamill in third. Heat two once again saw the sparks flying, with Halliday this time taking victory over Michael Logan and Hamill.
The final really was something else, with places and the lead exchanged constantly throughout the duration. Halliday, Logan and Thomas McCrory all had a spell out front each, some on multiple occasions, but in the final shuffle it was Stephen McCready who broke free to take the silverware ahead of McQuillan and Hamill after a simply superb meeting from the formula.

A number of visitors joined the locals for the Ninja Karts Stars of Tomorrow Challenge, with Christian Murray taking the heat one win over Eevie Ford and Riley Dawson-Stirling. Murray completed the double with another win in heat two, this time with Ford and Ben Hawe in the places in a race which featured a huge rollover for Charlie Johnston.
Johnston bravely returned to the grid for the final after some great pit work, as Hawe led the way until a mid race yellow flag closed the field together. Hawe tried his best to hang on, but World Champion Leyton Hughes swept past to take the win and the trophy ahead of Scottish visitor Ford and Ryan Berry.

The Stock Rods once again produced some fantastic racing, but the results were all about former Junior Productions star Mark Crawford. Mark claimed both heat wins to earn an upgrade to the blue grade for the final, leading home an impressive Mark Foster and Victor McAfee in both races as the star men failed to make any impact.
The upgrade should have made things more difficult for Crawford in the final, but the talented teenager raced clear of his challengers, then outside McAfee and inside leader Foster to complete his faultless hat-trick for the evening. Foster and McAfee again completed the top three.

After a Scottish and Ulster win, the English joined the fun in heat three as Oxfordshire’s Jason Kew took the honours over Gavin Murray and Dave Casey.

Bell and Martin shared the front row for the final with a blockbuster of a start seeing them all vying for the lead. Bell was in control though, with Martin slotting into second ahead of Hylands who had made a great run around the outside off the line. Bell kept control for the duration of the 45 lap event, holding off any surge from Martin to take the flag and retain his British title. Derek was a gallant runner up, with Hylands just holding off the attacking McDonald on the line.

Day two of the weekend saw the Leslie Dallas Memorial Trophy up for grabs, and it was Bell who was again claimed the honours, the magnificent trophy and a cool £1000 prize money. Hylands and Martin filled the places, the latter with an eye catching run around the outside over the closing laps.

A full field of 35 Superstox took to the track for the European Championship, and the action didn’t take long to start as World Champion Michael Green and local favourite Lee Davison both found themselves upside down before they had even taken the green flag in heat one! Both emerged unscathed as the heat wins fell to former World Champion John Mickel (twice) and Bangor’s Craig McConnell.

The European Championship final was then dominated by Nick Roots, as he powered ahead off the start to successfully defend his title, with Green staging a great comeback from his earlier rollover to land second ahead of Mickel for an all-English top three.

Limavady’s Josh Goligher came out on top in the Rookie Bangers Ulster Championship on Saturday night at Aghadowey Oval, the feature event of an excellent evening of Stock Car and Banger Racing.
Bangor’s Craig McConnell overcame a quality field of Superstox to claim the King of Aghadowey title, whilst young Jack Morrow from Rathfriland took the same crown in the Junior Productions after a great outside line drive. Thomas McCrory produced a superb last bend hit to take the final win in the 1300 Stock Cars final to complete a hat-trick for the night, whilst there was a dream debut for Rab Preston in the Thunder Rods as he took a heat and final double.

An excellent grid for a rare Aghadpwey Oval outing for the Rookie Bangers saw Josh Goligher take the win in the opening heat amidst a whole host of action on track. Lucas Goligher and William McFaul claimed the places. McFaul then came through in heat two to take the win over Ryan Nixon and Leonard Dunn, in a race which saw a stoppage for a big crash for Michael Smith on the pit bend.

The final saw the placemen from the heats start up front, and Josh Goligher edged clear in another race full of action all around the track. As he took the flag, Lucas Goligher made it a family affair by taking the runner up spot ahead of McFaul, the latter having lost out in a skirmish early in the race.

Just a week ahead of their European Championship being staged in the province, a fine field of twenty Superstox gathered to contest their King of Aghadowey title. Brian Lammey and Conor Murphy had turns out front in the opening heat, before Ed Davis raced through to take the win over Murphy and rapid debutant Curtis Greer. Heat two again saw Murphy spend quite a spell out front before this time Craig McConnell worked his way past to take the win over Greer and Jordan Robinson.

The final was lined up in points order, with Davis on pole position and Greer alongside. Davis made the perfect start to pull well clear of McConnell in second, with Craig then gradually reeling in the leader over the duration of the race. He made his move with just three laps to go, edging Davis wide into the Brown Trout Bend to take the win. Davis took a creditable second ahead of Greer, Steven Haugh and Robinson.

Lacey Bevan enjoyed a spell out front in the opening Juniors Production heat, before Abbie McKinstry pulled ahead to take the win over Stewart Hanna and Declan O’Connor. Heat two saw Aaron Dynes take the win after on the road winner Jack Morrow was docked two places for contact. Bevan took a creditable runner up spot, which was enough to earn herself pole position for the final alongside Hanna.

An early skirmish in the final saw McKinstry crash out, leaving O’Connor in the lead ahead of Sam Percy. Morrow really had the bit between his teeth in this one, pulling right around the difficult outside line to take an absolutely fantastic victory. Percy, O’Connor and Matthew Weir were next home.

The 1300 Stock Cars were simply spectacular all evening, with the bumpers put to good use in each and every race. Thomas McCrory had his new car on fine form as he took the opener ahead of Gareth Halliday and Jon McQuillan, the places decided after a huge last bend sort out. There was a big hit for Jack Kennedy in heat two as he was unceremoniously dumped in the wall on the Brown Trout Bend, as McCrory again took the flag over Matthew Milliken and Stephen McCready.

The final saw some great racing early on, with both blows and places exchanged. McCready worked his way ahead, but he soon has McCrory tracking his every move, even with the double heat winner’s rise to the red grade for the feature race. McCrory waited to the very last bend, launching an attack on McCready that took both out to the wall. They raced to the line side-by-side, with McCrory just getting the verdict, and the hat-trick, by the smallest of margins. McCready was a gallant runner up ahead of Robbie Wright in third.

The Thunder Rods again saw a very healthy field take to the track, which made things very difficult for the star men starting at the back of the grid. Debutant Rab Preston raced clear for a dream start to his career by taking the win in the opening heat, ahead of Samuel Murphy and Ricky Bradley. Bradley, in only his second outing on the ovals, then took the win in the second heat ahead of Murphy and Preston.

Preston made a lightning start to the final, quickly demoting his fellow novice graders to quickly build up a healthy lead. It was a lead he wouldn’t lose, and he raced home to take the silverware in style over Murphy and the rapid Dean Catherwood.
