Waringstown driver Ben McCully was on top form in the Stock Rods at Aghadowey Oval on Holiday Wednesday afternoon, grabbing a heat and final double in the second round of the MR Fabrications Challenge Series. Close racing was the order of the day at the LJN deSigns sponsored meeting, with Vince Litter grabbing the Lightning Rods feature race win and young Stewart Hanna taking home the Ninja Karts 'Young Trophy' after a excellent final. Jonny Gillespie was the Thunder Rods victor with Steven Bolton unbeaten in the Reliant Robins as he took the King of Aghadowey title. A poorer than expected turnout of Big Van Bangers saw Darren Bevan take the final win before he and Lee Booth shared the Destruction Derby spoils.

Prior to the racing our new European Stock Rods Champion Derek McMillan was paraded to the fans after his big win at the Ipswich Spedeweekend, whilst there was also a first glimpse of the gold roof of World Champion Stevie McNiece as he returned to action after his recent injury. Jonny Gillespie set the pace in the opening heat before he was overhauled by Shane McMillan when his engine went sick. It was tight going at the front, only for Shane to be bumped wide into turn one by Ben McCully late on. McCully took the flag but was docked for the contact, handing the win to experienced hand Victor McAfee ahead of Colin McNiece and the demoted McCully. McCully made no mistake in the second heat, hitting the front at mid distance to take the win with not troubles with Race Control in this one. Returnee Rod Fleck impressed in second ahead of Derek McMillan.
Aggregate point saw McCully and Derek McMillan share the front row for the final, with a new race tyre up for grabs courtesy of series sponsors MR Fabrications. These two battled hard for the duration of the feature race, with McCully able to stave off McMillan's many advances. Ben took the win to complete his double for the afternoon, with McMillan second ahead of Irish Champ Jonny Cardwell.

New World Champion Gary Beggs was given a victory salute from the fans after his recent title win, with his car looking superb with the gold roof. Gary was also presented with a watch by promoter Davy McCall to mark his excellent achievement. Gary had worked long into the night to cobble together an engine to get onto the grid, with his World winning power unit not back in operation after the post championship strip down. Mark Overend led the early laps of heat one until mechanical troubles intervened, handing the lead and ultimately the win to Ally Neill ahead of Ricky Shaw and Vince Litter. Shaw went one better in heat two, this time leading Neill home ahead of leading star grader Jordan Rochford.
Litter stamped his authority on the final, hitting the front after just six laps by demoting Christopher McGirr. Mark Corry was setting an excellent pace from the reds, but he couldn't quite get on terms with Litter who took a dominant win and a morale boost ahead of next week's British Championship. Corry and Rochford chased him home.

Curtis McConkey impressively led the opening Ninja Kart heat, before Sam Percy burst through to take the win ahead of Lily Gallagher and Bobby Henderson. Heat two was in the opposite direction to heat one, and it was girl racer Gallagher who powered through to the win ahead of Daniel Stewart and Stewart Hanna.
The final was for 'The Young Trophy', kindly donated each year by the Young and Hosie families. Lacey Bevan and Stewart had turns out front, before Kaitlyn Beggs surged ahead from the yellow grade. A late race stoppage when Stewart got into difficulties brought the others into contention, and it was Hanna who got away best to take a commanding win. There was an almighty scrap for the places over the last couple of laps, with Beggs impressing by holding off the others to take second ahead of Callum Magill and Gallagher. Once again there was some excellent racing from the youngsters throughout the day.

Stephen Scott held sway at the front of the Thunder Rods opening heat, before being bundled wide by Chrissy Dempsey. Dempsey went on to take the win, but was docked two places for contact which elevated Sam Montgomery to the win ahead of John Goligher. Roger Glass was the man on form in heat two, holding off the advances of Jonny Gillespie to the line to take the victory in his Peugeot, with Dempsey in third.
The LJN deSigns sponsored final saw Gillespie this time get the better of Glass early on to pull clear for a great win. It was a well deserved victory for Jonny, who was the busiest man of the day as he doubled up in both the Thunder Rods and Stock Rods. Glass held on for second ahead of Montgomery and Ryan Campbell.

The three wheelers were contesting their King of Aghadowey title, and big favourite Ian Bolton had a huge heat one rollover which ended his day. The resulting caution period eroded Haley Bevan's lead, allowing Steven Bolton to sneak through for the win ahead of JayJay McConaghie and John Stewart. Bolton repeated the dose in heat two to take another win again ahead of McConaghie, with Bevan this time getting third. Bolton and McConaghie completed the opening laps of the final side by side for the lead, before Bolton edged ahead to complete his hat-trick. McConaghie was bouncing off the wall as he gave his pursuit of the leader everything, but he had to be content with the runner up slot ahead of Stewart.

Unfortunately a lower than anticipated entry overshadowed the Van Bangers, but nonetheless Darren Bevan and Lee Booth tried their best to entertain. Bevan won the final, with the Destruction Derby ending in a tie between the two after an huge hit on the Pit Bend.

The NHRPA are pleased to announce a new title sponsor for National Hot Rods World Series NI for the 2016/17 season.

A deal has been reached with leading tyre manufacturer Hankook, in conjunction with their Northern Ireland distributor Tyre Call Ltd, to promote their range of performance road tyres in the 'Hankook Performance Tyres National Hot Rods World Series NI'. Hankook are one of the world’s leading tyre manufacturers, and currently supply some of the most prestigious car marques with their state of the art performance tyres as factory fitted original equipment to provide the optimal driving experience.

Former National Hot Rod racer Corrie Beggs and Derek Hill, General Manager of Tyre Call Ltd, have been instrumental in securing the deal, and on behalf of Hankook Corrie said, "It's a perfect match for Hankook, as we associate our high quality performance road tyre range with the premier oval racing category in Northern Ireland, which attracts many fans on a weekly basis. The National Hot Rod scene is currently on a real high in Ulster at present, and we hope with our backing it can continue to thrive. The entertainment value for the fans at the moment is second to none as the grid sizes continue to increase."

As part of the sponsorship deal all cars will carry the logos of the series sponsor, and there will be a lucrative cash prize on offer for the winner of each final throughout the season.

On behalf of the NHRPA & DMC Race Promotions, Darren Black was thrilled at the new deal. "We would like to thank Corrie and Derek, and also Mervyn Crawford, for their help in securing this deal with such a prestigious brand as Hankook, and it can only go to help enhance the great standing that the National Hot Rods currently have in Northern Ireland. We would also like to thank Rodney Wallace of PC Paints & Components Ltd for his excellent support for World Series NI over the past number of years, and have agreed that our good relationship with Rodney will continue in other forms over the coming months and years."

The opening round of the Hankook Performance Tyres National Hot Rods World Series NI takes place at Ballymena Raceway on Friday July 15th (7.15pm).

Ipswich Spedeweekend 2016 will go down as one of the most successful ever for DMC Race Promotions after some outstanding achievements by our drivers at the biggest oval weekend of the year at Foxhall Stadium.

Crumlin's Adam Maxwell was the biggest winner, landing the flagship National Hot Rods Championship of the World title. After taking pole position with a stunning lap during Saturday qualifying, Adam led the 35 car field away with Derek Martin alongside. Adam quickly settled into the lead, but was never out of Shane Murphy's reach as he was forced to soak up immense pressure. Murphy then crashed out as the duo clashed whilst amongst backmarking traffic. That opened the way for Maxwell to cruise to a universally popular win leading to some jubilant scenes after the flag following a faultless weekend from Adam. Republic of Ireland driver David Casey finished second with England Carl Waller-Barrett in third.

There was another World Championship victory in the Lightning Rods, this time for Ballycarry's Gary Beggs. Two fiercely competitive qualifying heats saw Beggs sitting nicely on row two for the World Final, with regular DMC visitor Ben Furness setting the pace. Aghadowey's Richard Stewart was looking in fine fettle and showing great speed, and when Furness lost out in traffic Stewart powered ahead in a DMC one-two. Beggs closed right up over the closing laps, and when the unfortunate Stewart cruelly clashed with a tail-ender nearing the finish, Gary grasped his opportunity with both hands to steal through and land the gold after the most sensational of races. Gary even broke into a chorus of the 'Ulster Boys Making All The Noise' in his post race interview, which went down a storm with the travelling fans!

The dust had barely settled on Beggs' Lightning Rod victory when Derek McMillan lined up on pole position for the Stock Rods European Championship after two excellent runs during Saturday's qualifying heats. He led the big field away, and held on from flag to flag despite some late pressure from Scottish star Siobhan Martin. Yet another controlled and mature drive from the young Kells ace netted him the red and yellow chequers of European Champion to add to the National Championship title he already holds.

Annaghmore's Clive Richardson started the ball rolling on Saturday with our first big win, racing off the front row to land the Classic Hot Rods National Championship in some style. He qualified his Leslie Dallas replica Mk2 Escort on the front row alongside Dave Owen and quickly established a lead he wouldn't lose all the way to the flag.

There were other notable drives over the weekend too, with a fantastic 2.0 Hot Rods World final seeing Joel Richardson, Wayne Woolsey and Shane Murray all battling for the premier places throughout. Ultimately it was England's Dan smith who took a popular win, with Richardson in second ahead of Scotland's Gordon Alexander and Woolsey, who was docked having crossed the line in second. In the Ninja Karts Stewart Hanna had two great races finishing second and fourth, with Callum Magill also carding a fourth place finish. Curtis Greer impressed in the 1300 Stock Cars whilst Lee Davison also ran well in the Superstox.

There was another notable result over the weekend too, with Ballymoney's Ian Bolton carding a creditable fourth place in the Reliant Robins World Final at Mildenhall.

Everyone at DMC Race Promotions would like to congratulate all our drivers who made the trip and flew the DMC Race Promotions flag in such style.

A fine mid-summers evening saw plenty of top quality racing on show at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday. Antrim's Stephen McCready left the circuit as winner of the ProStocks Tullyroan Challenge Cup, with the night's other big event, the National Bangers King of Krash, falling to Dublin's Stevo McGrath. Other feature race winners at the Vault Bistro of Tandragee-sponsored meeting were Aaron Rainey (1300 Stock Cars), David Wilson (Thunder Rods) and Stewart Hanna (Ninja Karts).

A public draw determined the grid for the opening heat of the ProStocks, which was reversed for heat two with the highest aggregate scorer netting pole position for the final. Evan Monaghan led away the opening heat before being demoted by Robbie Wright, but it was Irish Champion Dan Shannon who burst ahead on half distance to take it up. A caution period after big damage for Del McLaughlin on the home straight closed the grid up, but Shannon was quickly back up to pace and took a clear win over Stephen McCready and Robbie Wright. Heat two saw McLaughlin hell bent on revenge on Jordan McCann after his heat one troubles, and he managed to damage both cars heavily once again, bringing out the caution flags to rescue them from the Annaghmore Bend. McCready led this one from flag to flag, with Shannon a good second ahead of William McFaul in third.
With identical heat results McCready and Shannon tossed a coin for pole position in the Tullyroan Challenge Cup final, with Stephen getting the nod and edging ahead early on. Shannon dropped to third initially, but once he had dealt with McFaul he began to reel in the leader. McCready had all in hand though, and kept Shannon easily at bay all the way home to the chequered flag and the silverware. Shannon and Stephen Boyd completed the top three, the latter after bumpering his way past McFaul late on.

A depleted field of 2L National Bangers still put on a thrilling show, with Steven Reynolds setting the early pace in the King of Krash title race over fellow Dubliner Stevo McGrath. McGrath was tracking the leaders every move but couldn't get quite close enough to land a telling blow. That was until they encountered a backmarking posse in the back straight, with Reynolds getting wrong footed in the melee and allowing McGrath to steal through. Stevo held on to take the win over Reynolds and local driver Jonny Murdock.
The Allcomers saw some more great action, with Rod Herron seeming to be on the receiving end of a lot of abuse from his fellow drivers. Reynolds took the win over Paul Compelli, with third man Murdock being fired into the wall after the chequered flag by McGrath. An excellent if lengthy DD saw it boil down to a fight between Reynolds and welcome Scottish visitor Frank Boardman. Both were in excellent form and taking all manner of hits, but it was Reynolds who outlasted the tartan visitor to take the win. Paul Gaffney won the Entertainer of the Day award, with Best Wreck falling to Herron.

Teenager Jack Kearney led the exciting 1300 Stock Cars away in their opening heat, holding on out front until lap seven when Aaron Rainey went ahead from the blue grade. Rainey had Peter Greer filling his mirrors though, and on the final bend Greer went in with the bumper in a classic stock car manoeuvre to nab the win by a hairs breadth. Kearney and Rainey both had turns out front in the second race of the evening, but this time it was Anthony McIvor who steered himself by to land the win ahead of Rainey and Greer.
Kearney had a very handsome lead early in the final, but Rainey was able to run him down and slip head. Peter Greer and his namesake Curtis chased hard after moving through to second and third, but the laps ran out for them, leaving Rainey to take a well deserved victory. Curtis Greer went for the kill on the final bend, spinning Peter out and only succeeding in allowing Kearney back past to a hard earned second. Curtis Greer took third ahead of Peter G, the latter coming back across the track at the chequers as he recovered from his spin, collecting the rest of the field as he did so.

Another excellent entry of young Ninja Kart racers produced three superb races, with Josh Henderson setting the early pace in the opener before losing out to a fast moving Sam Percy. As Percy took the win, Lily Gallagher and Corey Stirling filled out the top three spots. Brandon Litter had one of his best races to date in the second heat, holding on out front until a stoppage when Lacey Bevan spun. Litter held on at the restart, but had no answer when Gallagher superbly feinted outside and then dived under the leader to take a fantastic victory over Jack Morrow and Percy.
Litter again led the early exchanges of the final before a stoppage for the stranded Jay Clyde. After the restart Morrow soon zipped ahead, but as he went wide around a backmarker Stewart Hanna found a gap down the inside to take it up. Hanna raced home to the win in fine style, with Morrow and Gallagher filling the podium. The 0-60 Personal Fitness sponsored Most Improved Driver award went to Curtis McConkey.

A rare Tullyroan Oval outing for the Thunder Rods saw three closely fought contests, with Ryan Campbell showing the others a clean pair of heels to in their opener ahead of a fast charging Jonny Gillespie and David Wilson. Campbell repeated the dose to take another win in the second heat, with Wilson netting second after a sublime outside line charge past Norman Purdy in the closing stages.
With Campbell automatically promoted to the blue grade for the final it was certain to shuffle things up, with Josh Goligher the early leader. Gillespie caught him as the lap boards approached, and then tried to bundle his way past on the inside. Wilson seized his opportunity with a great outside line move to pass them both and race home to the Vault Bistro sponsored trophy. Gillespie crossed the line second but was docked two places for contact on Goligher, handing second to Sam Montgomery ahead of Campbell in third.
