An action packed race meeting at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday evening somehow managed to stay dry throughout, with Cullybackey’s Marc Morrell being crowned Rookie Bangers Ulster Champion. There was a perfect hat-trick of victories in the Superstox for Bangor’s Craig McConnell, with Ballymena racer Adam Graham winning the Thunder Rods Tullyroan Challenge Cup.
The other final wins went to Crumlin’s Matthew Milliken in the 1300 Stock Cars and Glenavy’s Callum Magill in the Stock Rods.

Two action-packed qualifying heats kicked off proceedings for the Rookie Bangers, with lively action and spills all around the raceway. Limavady’s Josh Goligher triumphed in both with two great drives, the first ahead of Marc Morrell and Stephen Boyd. The second heat saw Josh ahead but suffering from a puncture late on, and as he tried to nurse the car home he, along with Gavin Gamble and William McFaul all came spinning to the line whilst pointing in all sorts of directions! Goligher got the nod by a hair’s breadth over Gamble and Boyd.
The Ulster Championship final saw Goligher edge clear early on, until he was baulked and taken to the infield by a backmarker. Josh sped across the infield to rejoin still ahead, but that attracted a warning from Race Control. He held on to take the chequered flag, but as he was deemed to have rejoined the race illegally he was demoted out of the podium places by the Stewards. That elevated a delighted Morrell to the championship win ahead of David Gurney and Boyd.

The second round of the Spedeworth TV/NIOvalTV Series for Superstox saw Troy Crawford lead for much of the distance in heat one, before NI Points Champion Craig McConnell muscled his way past on the final lap to grab the win. Heat two saw Crawford again out front before he was relegated by Paddy Murphy. Curtis Greer then hit the front before McConnell again nudged his way through to the victory over Steven Haugh.
The final saw Gerard Hartley build up quite an advantage out front, before that man McConnell came calling once again. Craig burst ahead to complete his faultless treble for the evening over Jamie McCann, Greer and Haugh.

The budget Thunder Rods division served up some great racing throughout the meeting, with Matthew Nicholl pulling off a superb outside line pass on James Goldie to win the opening heat in some style. Heat two saw yet another outside line surge from Davey Wilson as he took the flag over Adam McKinney.
The Tullyroan Challenge Cup saw Nicholl set the early pace before Adam Graham found a gap down the inside on the back straight. He quickly made the lead his own, and held on for the win despite the close efforts of runner up Goldie, with Nicholl taking third place.

A trio of very welcome Tipperary Raceway visitors boosted the Stock Rods grid, and it was one of them, Eogan Burke, who took the opening heat win over a fast charging Mark Foster and Irish Champion Dan Shannon. Heat two saw a fantastic drive from European, British and National Champion Mark Crawford, as he powered around the outside of Joe Largey on the final lap to take a sensational last gasp win on the line by inches.
Burke lead for much of the final but had Declan O’Connor chasing hard throughout. With five laps to go O’Connor launched his bid for the lead, but only succeeded in bundling Burke wide. Declan took the lead but the move would cost him dear after the race. He was unfortunately demoted two places to third for the contact by the Stewards, handing the win to Callum Magill ahead of Crawford.

Plenty of hard racing and contact was the order of the day in the 1300 Stock Cars, with veteran campaigner Tommy McCrory rolling back the years to win the opener ahead of Fionn Donnelly and Ty Richardson. Heat two was all about Alan Milliken, the novice grader taking a great win over his son Matthew with Donnelly in third.
It was a family affair in the feature race final too, with Alan Milliken leading and Matthew moving through into second place with just a couple of laps remaining. Would he let his Dad take the glory? Not a chance said Matthew, as he went in with the bumper to move his Dad wide and race past to take the trophy in a family one-two finish. Ivan Elliott and Jonathan Brown were next home in another great race from the 1300’s.

After a short mid-summer break, short oval racing on the DMC Race Promotions circuits resumes this Saturday night (July 15th) at Tullyroan Oval.

Heading the line up is the Ulster Championship for the Rookie Bangers, where the action is sure to come thick and fast from an expected 25+ car field. Garvagh's Stephen Boyd is the defending champion and he will be hoping for another top display. World Champion John Goligher from Limavady is another to watch out for amongst what will be chaos on track, whilst John's son Josh is another contender and is indeed a former Ulster Champion.

The open-wheeled Superstox will be contesting the second round of their NIOvalTV/Spedeworth TV Series. Irish Champion Steven Haugh from the Birches, Bangor's NI Points Champ Craig McConnell and recent form man Lee Davison will be the ones to watch, alongside Jamie McCann, Curtis Greer and Jordan Robinson to name a few. The racing from the Superstox is always entertaining and exciting.

The Stock Rods will see Mark Crawford back in action on home ground having just successfully defended his British Championship title at Ipswich Spedeweekend at the start of the month, and he will be keen to grab more silverware. Jonny Cardwell has also been on top form so far in 2023 and is sure to go close, as will World champion Colin McNiece, his brother Stevie and Irish Champion Dan Shannon. Making a visit north from Tipperary Raceway will be John Gray, Paddy O'Dwyer and Eogan Burke.

The 1300 Stock Cars will also provide some fantastic entertainment as the bumpers are put to good use, with the higher grids this season really bringing the formula to the forefront. Irish Open Champion Ivan Elliott and Irish Champion Jonathan Brown will be amongst the pacesetters as always, but stand well back as the sparks and concrete are sure to fly!

Completing the line up are the budget racers in the Thunder Rods as they contest the Tullyroan Challenge Cup. Sam Preston from Portadown was the winner last time out at Tullyroan and he will be keen for more glory. He will face stiff opposition from flying Ballymena duo of James Goldie and Daniel Rodgers, who are often the class of the field. Zach McCombe, Andrew McLean and Irish Champion Jason Darragh will be other challengers.

The first race leaves the grid at 6.30pm
