DMC Race Promotions in association with Spedeworth Motorsports would like to congratulate Shane Murray on a fantastic victory in the National Hot Rods Thunder 500 at Ipswich last weekend.

Shane performed well during the heats, carding a win and a seventh, to qualify on the outside of the second row for the final. Having been edged to the wall at the start and dropping back down the order, Shane produced a superb comeback to get himself right back into contention. A sublime outside line pass on leader Billy Wood helped on his way to his first ever international victory in the Nationals class.

Shane's attentions now switch to the 2.0 Hot Rods World Championship, again at Ipswich, at the start of July, before he focuses once again on the National Hot Rod for the remainder of the season.

Tullyroan based driver Jack Gilpin was the toast of Aghadowey Oval last Saturday evening when he was victorious in the Superstox 2016 King of Aghadowey title race. Jack got the better of a nail biting finish to the event after a late race caution period closed the main contenders together, and there were also feature race wins at the Ross Hyndman Motors of Lisahally-sponsored meeting for Willie Taggart (Stock Rods), Drew McKeown (Junior Productions), Ricky Shaw (Lightning Rods) and Colin McFarland (2.0 Hot Rods), whilst the entertaining Ramp Rollover contest went to Darren Bevan.

An excellent field of Superstox arrived to contest the King of Aghadowey title, and it was impressive recent debutant Warren Martin who set the early pace in heat one. He led until just past half distance, when a flying Ryan McClure stormed past to grab the victory. Conor Murphy came through for second ahead of leading star grader Lee Davison, with Martin settling for fourth. Martin again led the way in heat two, this time holding on until the lap boards were out towards the end of the race. It was Jack Gilpin who nudged him wide in true stock car fashion to grab the win, with Warren hanging on for a very impressive second ahead of McClure and Murphy.
Aggregate points saw McClure on pole for the King of Aghadowey final with the impressive Martin alongside, whilst Murphy and Gilpin filled out row two. Murphy spun but quickly recovered on the opening lap, and as the others got delayed McClure made off into a useful lead. Gilpin made it through to second ahead of Chambers, and the race looked to have settled down before a late race caution for cars stranded at the entrance of turn three. McClure's lead was now gone, with Gilpin, Chambers and Irish Champion Denver Grattan right on his tail, the latter after starting from the rear after two non finishes in the heats. McClure made a great restart, but Gilpin soon nudged past to take up the running. McClure wasn't finished there and came back once again to retake the lead, but Gilpin wasn't done just yet either, hitting back hard to grab back the advantage and take a pleasing win in some style. Chambers also got the better of McClure to grab second on the line, with Ryan left to rue what might have been in third. The drivers then got a extra race to round out the programme, with Lee Davison taking the Dash for Cash win ahead of Chambers and Jordan Robinson.

Seventeen Stock Rods produced some of the most competitive racing of the night, with welcome Scottish visitor Chris Lattka amongst the entry as well as the new Corsa C of young star Ed Davis. Jonny Gillespie set the pace in the opener, leading for much of the way before losing out late on to Shane McMillan. As Shane took the win, Lee Best and Ben McCully filled out the places. Ahoghill's Marc Morrell went ahead early on in heat two, racing all the way to the victory ahead of Best and Willie Taggart.
Gillespie once again had a good shot at setting the pace in the final, leading for over a third of the distance before the chasing pack reeled him in. He had no answer to Taggart's pace though, and Willie swept by before half distance to land yet another trophy of what is becoming a very fruitful campaign for the local driver. Gillespie more than impressed in hanging onto second, with Morrell and Gary Butler coming through for third and fourth at the line.
Before racing commenced the recently crowned World Champion Stevie McNiece was paraded to the fans with his championship trophy, and he received a presentation from Davy McCall of DMC Race Promotions to mark his outstanding achievement. Unfortunately Stevie was kept off track by an ankle injury, but he hopes to be back in action at the next meeting sporting his gold roof.

The Junior Productions were racing in round two of the 1ke Engineering Young Guns Series, and the opening heat saw a superb flag to flag debut win for Josh Rodgers. The Portadown lad held off the advancing Adam McFall to take the win, which is sure to be the first of many to come. Recent form man Adam Weir from Broughshane came through to take victory in the second heat of the night, leading home Davy Gurney and Irish Champion Drew McKeown to the flag in a race that saw Matthew Nicholl and Shea Duff eliminated in an early accident.
Weir and McFall shared the front row in the final, with Weir grabbing the early initiative before row two starter McKeown powered past to the lead. It was then a demonstration of top pace from McKeown, as he drew well clear to take the win by a considerable margin. Duff worked his way through from well down the grid to take a strong second place, with McFall and Gurney next across the line.

Ricky Shaw relegated early leader Christopher McGirr in the opening Lightning Rods encounter, with the Antrim man taking a clear win over Vince Litter and Scott Cochrane, the latter gaining third after Mark McCambridge was dropped a couple of places for contact. Shaw again set the pace in the second heat, but was absolutely powerless to halt the charge of star man Jordan Rochford. The Portadown ace took a great win over Shaw and Litter in this one.
A slight drizzle for the final saw Shaw again the pacesetter, with Rochford like before the man to watch as he charged through from the star grade. Into the closing laps and Jordan was right on the leader, before slight contact between the pair saw Shaw snap out of shape and lose momentum, allowing Rochford past on the outside. There had been contact between the pair, but as Rochford took the flag he had to be dropped for the offence by Race Control, which handed the Ross Hyndman Motors trophy to Shaw. World Champion Cochrane took second, ahead of the relegated Rochford.

A hugely depleted entry of 2.0 Hot Rods, with many of the drivers having an eye on the upcoming World Championship, saw those present race alongside the Lightning Rods. Some excellent driving from Sean Dynes saw him grab both heat wins by going the long way around long time leader Colin McFarland in both races. The final saw grip at a premium on the greasy surface, and despite the best efforts of Dynes he was unable to unseat 1994 World Super Rods Champion McFarland from the win. The delighted Londonderry man took the victory ahead of Dynes and Gary Thompson.

An entertaining Ramp Rollover Challenge saw a battle between Mark Cairns and Darren Bevan. Whilst Cairns produced the most impressive roll by launching himself high into the air, it was Bevan who got the nod from the judges for completing two full rolls. Darren is becoming quite a specialist in the novelty events, adding the Ramp Rollover victory to his recent win in the Caravan Destruction Derby.

Calling all daredevil drivers!
We have a couple of excellent opportunities for you to display your skill and bravery coming up at Aghadowey Oval. First up is next Saturday night, June 18th, when the Ramp Rollover is back! Last year's Aghadowey Ramp Rollover was a cracker, and we will be hoping for more of the same this year. The ramp has been modified to get the cars rolling much easier! Cars should be to Rookie Banger type spec, with a roll hoop to protect the driver, all glass etc removed and a full harness fitted. Contact us for more details if you fancy getting involved.

Then on Bank Holiday Wednesday July 13th, again at Aghadowey Oval, we have Big Van Banger racing. The rules will be kept simple for this one to get vans on track, and will again be built to'rookie-type' spec. All vans (approx Transit size and above) must be stripped out before racing, with a single roll bar/scaffold pole behind the drivers seat. A door plate must be fitted on the drivers door, and a full harness is required. This promises to be a spectacular afternoon's racing in front of what is always a big holiday crowd. Please contact us for further details and bookings.

DMC Race Promotions in association with Spedeworth Motorsports would like to congratulate our Stock Rod star Stevie McNiece on his superb Championship of the World victory at Tipperary on Saturday.

Driving his Vauxhall Corsa, Stevie netted a first and seventh in his heats to line up on pole position alongside fellow DMC driver Jonny Cardwell. McNiece made no mistake in the big race, leading from start to finish to take the biggest victory of his career to date and land the gold roof for the next twelve months. Defending champion Dean O'Dell from England came home in second ahead of local driver Alan McCormack. There were some great celebrations after the race, as one of the nicest men on the local racing scene enjoyed his deserved victory in the formula's biggest event.

The new World Champion will be back in action at Aghadowey Oval on Saturday June 18th, when he is assured of a hero's welcome home from the local fans.

There was other Ulster success over the weekend too, with Jordan Rochford leading a DMC lock out of the top positions in the Lightning Rods Southern Irish Open, winning ahead of Richard Stewart, Gary Beggs and Winston Weir. In the 2.0 Hot Rods Southern Irish Open, local stalwart Tom Casey took the win with Antrim brothers Mervyn and Stephen Emerson second and third respectively.
