A fine Saturday evening at Tullyroan Oval produced some excellent race action, with five formulae entertaining the local race fans. A bruising 1300 Stock Cars Tullyroan Challenge Cup fell to Antrim's Nicky Lowry, with the Junior Productions Tullyroan Challenge Cup going the way of Bleary teenager Drew McKeown. Banbridge ace Denver Grattan was the winner of a pulsating Superstox final, with other wins at the LMC Trade Sales of Dungannon sponsored meeting falling to local Tullyroan ace Allen Cherry in the 2.0 Hot Rods and European Champion Stephen McCready in the ProStocks.

The hard-hitting 1300 Stock Cars entertained right throughout the meeting as only they can do, with the opening exchanges in the first heat setting the standard for the rest of the night. As the bumpers went piling in, form man Curtis Greer emerged with the lead before losing out to a flying Ivan Elliott. As Elliott took the win, NIcky Lowry slipped into second ahead of Greer. The second heat picked up where the first had left off, with more drama right from the green flag as Anthony McIvor muscled his way through the field. Out of the excitement Elliott again found himself ahead, and took his second win of the night over Jon McQuillan and Lowry.
The first attempt to get the final started saw a huge home straight rollover for McIvor in his Toyota Starlet before they had even passed the green flag! The Coleraine man is made of stern stuff, and quickly dusted himself down and took his place for the complete restart! There was more mayhem at the second time of asking, with polesitter Elliott unceremoniously dumped into the turn four concrete and out of contention. That opened the door for Lowry to nip ahead, and despite the best attentions of McQuillan, Greer and McIvor that was how they crossed the line. Lowry was great value for his Challenge Cup win after a great night's action from the 1300's.

The other Tullyroan Challenge Cup on offer was for the Junior Productions, also decided using the reverse grid system with aggregate points determining the grid for the all important final. Matthew Nicholl led the opening heat away, before Drew McKeown nipped ahead just before half distance. Drew pulled clear to lead Matthew over the line with Shea Duff in third. Ben Bruce led the opening laps of heat two, holding off a determined pack behind. He then got muscled out of things on the Tullyroan Bend as the whole field bunched up. Graham Meek impressively went ahead before losing out to Duff and McKeown nearing the end. Duff was initially dropped two places for his part in Bruce's demise, but after video evidence was viewed he was reinstated to the win.
Star men McKeown and Duff led the Tullyroan Challenge Cup final away from the front row, with Duff soon losing out to Nicholl. Shea wasted little time getting back to second before a caution period when Sam McNeice hit trouble. McKeown led them back into battle before an audacious move by Duff to take the lead ended in disaster for the Crumlin lad as he sustained a puncture which finished his race. That left McKeown to cruise home to a deserved victory over Nicholl and Jack Hazlett.

Recent newcomer Aaron McNeilly underlined his ability by dominating the Superstox heats as the single-seaters contested the second round of the NIOvalTV Series. Aaron has improved greatly in his few months in the formula, and took a clear win in the opener over Conor Murphy and Sean Mark. The star men again failed to make an impact in the second heat, as McNeilly again raced home to the flag, again ahead of Murphy in second with Jordan Robinson this time in third.
With McNeilly upgraded to the yellows courtesy of his double heat win, it was Murphy who seized his chance to pull clear at the start of the final, with a new race tyre up for grabs courtesy of NIOvalTV. Robinson was doing his best to run him down, whilst once again the star names were making slow progress from the rear. That all changed however when Andrew Morrow's engine let go into turn three, covering the track in oil and bringing out the caution with Andrew, Mark and the luckless Lee Davison all hard in the wall. With the field now closed up, Robinson quickly went ahead on the restart, dusting Murphy out to the wall in the process. Jordan now had Irish Champion Denver Grattan chasing him down, and he went for the hit into turn one on the last lap. Jordan did his best to come back into the final turn, but failed to unseat Grattan who took the honours after what had been a fairly subdued night from him up until the second half of the feature race. Robinson was great value in second ahead of Jack Gilpin.

Dean McFarland led the opening heat of the 2.0 Hot Rods until half distance, when Jack Boal surged ahead to take a morale boosting victory. Allen Cherry was second over the line whilst Jason Devlin inherited third after Wayne Woolsey was disqualified for an earlier clash with Joel Richardson. Colin McFarland was the early leader in the second outing, before Cherry put a great outside pass on him to race clear for the win. Devlin again impressed in second with Richardson third in this one.
Cherry once again got himself clear of his fellow blue graders early in the final to chase after C McFarland who was setting the pace once again. As Cherry hit the front, Woolsey was making great strides towards the front, relegating Boal and Devlin to get a clear sight of the leader. Wayne turned up the wick over the closing segment of the race, arriving on Cherry's back bumper just as the laps ran out. Allen therefore completed his double to earn a rise to the star grade and more importantly a big morale boost ahead of next week's European Championship at Aghadowey. Behind Woolsey in second, Devlin, Boal and Stephen Emerson completed the top five.

The ProStocks put on a bruising display when most expected the opposite, given that their Irish Open Championship was just a week away! Lady racer Crystal Murray led the opener away from the white grade, but Jordan McCann chased her down and went ahead to take the win, but only after a quick Stewards Enquiry into his start to the event. Adam White took second, with Davy Wright inheriting third after his brother Robbie was disqualified from the meeting for an incident during the final later in the evening. Early yellows for James Goldie and then Adam McCready in the second heat eroded Murray's lead, with the impressive new car of McCann again surging ahead. Jordan lost out to a flying Stephen McCready in the final few laps, with the European Champion taking the win over McCann and Stephen Boyd.
Murray again led the final away before an ugly incident between Robbie Wright and Goldie saw Goldie nursing a very bent car and Wright facing a spell on the sidelines. Murray again led initially until White charged ahead. McCready was in contention once again, although it almost ended in disaster as he and White became hooked together into turn one. McCready escaped as Adam ended his race in the wall, with Stephen then reeling off the final laps to complete his double for the evening. Dan Shannon kept McCready honest in second, with Boyd and McCann next up.

An entertaining Ramp Rollover Challenge fell to event specialist Mark Cairns ahead of Rab Wharry.

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.
