Chris McArdle was the toast of Aghadowey Oval on Saturday evening when he was crowned King of Aghadowey in the Superstox formula after an excellent drive. Chris also made the most of the tricky track conditions to land a heat win too. A fine summer’s evening was blighted by a monumental downpour mid-meeting, with the other winners at the TrophiesNI sponsored meeting being Portadown’s Nigel Jackson (Lightning Rods), Antrim’s Leyton Hughes (Ninja Karts), Glenavy ace Joe Largey (ProStocks) and Limavady’s John Goligher (Back to Basics Bangers).

David Beattie was the man to watch in the opening Superstox heat, the novice grader leading all the way to take a fine win ahead of Paddy Murphy and Conor Murphy. Heat two was contested in the midst of a cloud burst, with the horrendous conditions seeing Coalisland’s Chris McArdle cope best to land a great win ahead of World Champion Lee Davison.
Aggregate points saw Davison and Aaron McNeilly share the front row for the King of Aghadowey final, on what was a drying but difficult track. The initial start was aborted with pole sitter Davison much too slow on the rolling lap, and at the second attempt he was bundled wide by McArdle’s bumper as Chris raced through to take up the running. Davison tried hard to fight back, but lost ground before spinning out of contention in a melee with the other placemen. There was action all around the circuit, but McArdle had his head down and raced clear to record a great victory. Sean Mark chased him home in second, with a fine drive from novice grader Darren Bevan netting him his best ever feature race result in third.

The Lightning Rods, as has become the norm of late, excelled all evening. Portadown’s Ronan McNally led much of the distance in heat one, but late on had Martin O’Flaherty and Mark Corry for company. O’Flaherty tried and failed on the outside line, before Corry had a go and this time made it stick with a fantastic move. Mark took the flag ahead of McNally and Irish Champion Nigel Jackson. McNally again led the way in heat two, before O’Flaherty this time got his nose ahead late on. A late red flag was called with Jordan Rochford in the home straight wall, with O’Flaherty taking the win on countback to the last completed lap. McNally, Tim Hazlett and Corry filled the places.
The conditions were very greasy for the final, and it was very ominous for the rest when slippery surface specialist Jackson drew pole in the star grade. Rochford and his team also deserve recognition for the sterling pit work which returned their heavily damaged car to the track. McNally departed the fray early on when his bonnet came adrift, handing the lead to O’Flaherty. But Jackson was on a charge, and in his trademark style he hit the wide outside line and raced clear for a tremendous win. O’Flaherty, Adam McCann and James McKinney filled the places.

Young Thomas Naismith was the latest debutant in the Ninja Karts, with the opening heat seeing the red flags out early on when Ryan Abernethy Jnr rolled onto his side on the home straight having clipped a stranded kart. Thankfully Ryan emerged unscathed, with Leyton Hughes racing home to the win ahead of Andrew Hawe and Ryan Berry. Berry and then Hughes had spells out front, but there was no stopping Max Hobson who charged through to win over Hughes and Irish Champ Lacey Bevan.
The final again saw Berry charging clear at the off, with Hughes slipping through to the lead at the half way mark. Hobson was soon up to second and bearing down on the leader, but Leyton had all under control and sliced through the backmarkers on the last lap to take a creditable victory. Hobson, Berry and Bevan completed the top finishers.

Impressive novice grader Rab Wharry led much of the opening ProStocks heat, losing out to William McFaul in the closing stages. McFaul took the flag but lost the win on a minor technical issue, handing victory to Joe Largey over European Champion Steven Haugh and British Champ Dan Shannon. Wharry again led heat two, with Largey edging clear but then he dropped out with a burst radiator. That allowed McFaul to take the flag and this time there were no scrutineering issues and he kept the win ahead of Haugh and Shannon.
The final was the second round of the McElmeel Mobility Services Supreme Series, and again Wharry led from the off on the very wet track. Largey was reeling him in all the time, slipping ahead with four to go to grab the win and the new race tyre courtesy of the series sponsors. Haugh tried his level best but just couldn’t get on terms and had to settle for second, with Shannon and Wharry next home.

As always the Back to Basics Bangers entertained the race fans, with Steven Bolton intent on creating havoc in all their races. John Goligher, Phil Davey, Nel Capper and Tyler Goligher all had spells out front in the opener, with Tyler falling foul of Bolton late on which allowed Josh Goligher through to the win. Heat two again had its fair share of action, with Tony Gillespie looking a surefire winner until he got caught up in all sorts of problems. That allowed John Goligher to grab the win at the death over Capper.
The King of Aghadowey final saw Bolton get disqualified as he stepped outside the spirit of the formula, with John Goligher taking his second win of the day over Josh Goligher and Capper.

Dublin based ‘Team Sour A’ were victorious in an entertaining Rookie Bangers Irish Teams Championship at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday evening. Paul O’Connor took the final win to help his outfit to the teams title, whilst the other victories at the George Fegan Tyres of Belfast sponsored meeting fell to Kilrea’s Joshua McMullan in the Thunder Rods, Newtownabbey’s Aaron McNeilly in the Superstox, Glenavy’s Dan Shannon in the ProStocks and Birches driver Robbie Wright in the 1300 Stock Cars.

The Rookie Bangers racing was action packed all evening, with the rapid Peter McConnell from Team Chancers taking the opening heat ahead of The Hooligans’ Josh Goligher and Paul O’Connor from Team Sour A. Phillip Farrell steered his way to heat two victory for The Hooligans over Deano McGrath and McConnell, leaving the points delicately poised heading into the final.
O’Connor made a quick getaway in the feature race, leaving the rest trailing in his wake as he negotiated the carnage amongst the pack. Paul raced home to the win with his Team Sour A team mate Ger O’Beirne riding shotgun in second. That was enough to allow the Dublin based team to successfully defend their title, with The Hooligans in second ahead of Team Chancers.

The Thunder Rods made their first visit of the season to Tullyroan with an excellent twenty car grid. William Donnell took the opening heat victory in only the second outing for his new car, fending off a spirited outside line challenge from David Wilson with Jason Darragh in close company in third. The reversed grid heat two saw Gavin Gamble lead for much of the distance, before he lost out to a hard charging Christopher Baird. Baird took the win over Joshua McMullan and Gamble.
The Tullyroan Challenge Cup final paired Wilson and Donnell on the front row, on what was a very difficult track after the Bangers had laid down copious amounts of fluid. Donnell got the better of Wilson early on, using the cleaner outside line to get ahead. Wilson fought back in determined fashion, with McMullan getting in on the act too. Joshua worked his way to second and then hit the front after a great run around the outside of Donnell. As Joshua edged clear to take the win, Wilson’s determined drive came to nothing as he lost ground late on. That left Donnell to collect the runner up trophy ahead of James Goldie in third.

The Superstox saw World Champion Lee Davison debut his superb new RCE car, only to be unfortunately sidelined during heat one with a blown engine. Novice grader David Beattie was the man to watch in the opener, spinning fellow front starters Paddy Murphy and Darren Bevan to race clear to the win. Aaron McNeilly and Conor Murphy chased him home. Beattie was again well clear in heat two only for mechanical issues to force him into retirement. That left Conor Murphy out front, but the fast moving Jordan Robinson moved ahead with three laps to go to take the victory over McNeilly and C Murphy.
The final saw Darren Bevan impressively lead early on, before McNeilly swooped to take up the running. Robinson found a way past C Murphy to go second at the mid point, but despite closing on the leader it was McNeilly who took a well deserved victory after a fine drive. Robinson was great value in second ahead of C Murphy, with Stephen Stewart the first star man home in fourth.

Teenage novice grader Gareth Halliday was the star turn in the 1300 Stock Car heats, taking both victories with ease to earn himself a rise to the yellow grade for the final. In the opener Ryan Stewart and Calvin Blake chased him home, whilst Jack Kearney and Robbie Wright filled the places in the second heat.
The final was the second round of the Ryan Wright Signs Iron Man Series, and it saw a great battle early on between Halliday, Kearney and Stewart. Blake then arrived on the scene with a big hit to unsettle all three and take up the running. Recently crowned Open Scottish Champion Robbie Wright was soon on his tail, the pair swapping blows and the lead before Wright made good his escape to take the flag and a new race tyre courtesy of the series sponsors. Blake and Nicky Lowry rounded out the podium finishers.

As always the ProStocks entertained as they contested the Tullyroan Challenge Cup. David McKinnon and Iain Browne contested the lead in the first heat before losing out to Sam Stewart, but star man Dan Shannon soon arrived on the scene to bumper them all wide and take the win over Stewart and McKinnon. Shannon again grabbed the spoils in heat two, this time forcing a way past the lead battle between McKinnon, Stewart and Dylan Booth. Stewart snatched second on the last lap ahead of former World Champion Alan Haugh on his return to racing.
A Tullyroan Bend melee saw the first attempt to get the Tullyroan Challenge Cup final underway aborted. At the restart Shannon and Haugh contested the lead, before the yellow caution flags came up for a huge turn two crash which eliminated Booth, David Browne and Joe Largey, the latter having gallantly changed an engine after a blow up in practice. Shannon cruised home to take the win and complete his hat-trick, with the minor places all declared null and void due to technical issues at post race scrutineering.
