Coleraine driver Adam White took the biggest win of his career to date on Saturday night at Cowdenbeath, when he was crowned 2017 ProStocks British Champion.

A nine strong Ulster army made the trip across the Irish Sea, and they dominated the meeting from start to finish. White came home for victory in heat one ahead of Stephen Boyd and Del McLaughlin, before Greg McMullan headed home White and Boyd in the second heat.

A frantic final saw defending champion Steven Haugh go out early on, as his chances of a hat-trick of British titles disappeared. Boyd and Irish Champion Dan Shannon were casualties too, but White kept his head to race home to the British Championship crown in superb style, ahead of Karl Smyth and McMullan for an all-DMC Race Promotions top three.

Many congratulations to Adam from everyone at DMC Race Promotions, and to Karl and Greg as well, on their great results.

An entertaining evening of stock car racing at Aghadowey Oval on Saturday saw three new Kings of Aghadowey crowned after fifteen hard fought races. Donemana's Leonard Dunn took victory in the Micro National Bangers, Banbridge ace Denver Grattan was victorious in the Superstox and Nutts Corner's Adrian McKinstry took an excellent 1300 Stock Car crown. In the Junior Productions Portadown's Drew McKeown landed yet another title with victory in The Young Trophy, whilst Ballycastle's Andrew McLean was the winner in the Thunder Rods.

The Nissan Micra was the main weapon of choice on the grid for the Micro Bangers King of Aghadowey. The action came thick and fast right from the off, with stoppages when Craig Nichol and then William Bingham got themselves into trouble after some monster hits. There was also a rollover for David Wilson, whilst Leonard Dunn managed to relieve Steven Bolton of the lead to take the King of Aghadowey victory. Behind Bolton, Stevo McGrath took third ahead of Willy Ogilby, the latter of whom had spent most of the race destroying anything in his path.
The Allcomers race started in even more spectacular fashion, with a tremendous double rollover for both Deano McGrath and Ogilby on the home straight. Once again there was a great fight for the lead between Dunn and Bolton, as the reds came out again when newcomer Leslie Millar got obliterated by Stevo McGrath by the pit gate. Up front Dunn held on for his second win of the day over Bolton and S. McGrath. A fantastic DD saw yet another rollover, this time for Bolton which ruled him out of contention. It boiled down to a three way fight between S. McGrath, Dunn and Matthew McKinstry. Dunn and McGrath had a cracking head on, before McKinstry piled in to finish McGrath off. But it killed Matthew's car too, and Dunn drove away to take his third win of the day to complete a clean sweep. S McGrath's consolation was the Best Wreck Trophy, whilst Ogilby quite rightly earned the Entertainer of the Day Award.

The Superstox saw a welcome return to action for Gary Grattan, and it was his brother Denver who took the opening heat win. Lee Johnston saw his big early lead wiped out by a yellow caution period for Aaron McNeilly in the wall. A the restart there was plenty of bumperwork between the Grattan brothers, Lee Davison and Conor Murphy, with Denver Grattan breaking clear to challenge Johnston. Denver went in with a timely last bend hit to take the win in some style, breaking the lap record as he went. Johnston made amends in heat two, taking the win ahead of Adam Lockhart and impressive recent newcomer James Logan.
Johnston had pole position for the King of Aghadowey final, and they lined up with the track still damp after a brief shower. 'Jonto' through it all away though by spinning off at the green flag, with Denver Grattan going ahead from Gary Chambers, Gary Grattan and Davison. Try as he may Chambers just couldn't quite get close enough to launch an attack for the lead, but he did keep Denver honest all the way home as the Irish Champion added yet another title to his collection. Chambers was a gallant runner up with Stephen Stewart inheriting third after Davison and Gary Grattan collided towards the end.

There was controversy in the opening heat for the rough and tumble 1300 Stock Cars, when on the road winner Aaron Rainey was docked two places for jumping the start. Michael Logan had deposed Jonny Patterson to go second, but Patterson came back hard on the last bend to nudge past and take a very pleasing win after Rainey's penalty kicked in. Jack Kearney and Patterson battled out front early in heat two, before Calvin Blake powered past to take a deserved victory ahead of Thomas McCrory and Rainey.
Rainey had annexed pole spot for the King of Aghadowey final, but many were caught on the wrong set-up as the rain started just as they came to grid. The opening lap was dramatic to say the least, with the bumpers exchanged in no uncertain terms. Adrian McKinstry tangled with Rainey and found himself headlong into the wall on the home straight as Michael Logan led ahead of McCrory. McCrory challenged and hit the front, but all the time McKinstry was putting in a stunning recovery drive through the field. He landed on the leaders bumper on the final lap, and duly went ahead to take an outstanding, if somewhat unlikely at one stage, victory. McCrory and Logan filled out the podium.

Up for grabs for the Junior Productions was The Young Trophy, kindly presented each year by the Young and Hosie families. A great battle between the star graders was a feature of the opening heat, but Gareth Halliday was oblivious to that as he powered away to a great win over Adam Weir and Adam McFall. Matthew Nicholl led most of the way in heat two until a badly judged move by Halliday ruined both their chances late on and gifted the win to Weir.
Weir led the final away, but lost out to Halliday who quickly went ahead. Gareth soon had his mirrors full of Drew McKeown though, and he found a way past to take up the running with Graham Meek in tow. Despite some gallant efforts by Meek on the outside line, McKeown had all under control and took the superb Young Trophy over Meek and Nicholl. Halliday and Callum Magill were proud recipients of the grade awards for top white and yellow grade finishers.

The Thunder Rods rounded out the programme, with Davy Wilson the man to beat during the heats. He stormed past leader Chrissy Dempsey on the last lap to take the opener, before scything past Andrew McLean to make it a double with the heat two win as well. That elevated him to the star grade for the final, which saw Dempsey the early leader before McLean went ahead. Wilson was on a charge once again though, but despite making it through to second, the victory and the win went to McLean who had driven a very solid race out front. Wilson was a gallant runner up but just couldn't close the gap to the winner, with Jason Darragh in third.

A fine mid-summer's evening at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday saw some great racing on track, and the big winner was Dungannon's Ally Neill who romped home to lift the annual Tullyroan Challenge Cup for the Lightning Rods. The other feature race victories at the Hollytree Rare Breeds Farm sponsored meeting fell to Aaron Rainey (1300 Stock Cars), Christy Bradley (Rookie Bangers), Stephen Emerson (2.0 Hot Rods) and Corey Stirling (Ninja Karts).

The biggest field of the season so far arrived in the pits to do battle for the Lightning Rods Tullyroan Challenge Cup, raced over two reverse grid qualifiers before the final itself would see the top points scorer gain pole position. Ricky Shaw set the pace in the opener from pole position, but Aaron Stewart moved ahead early on to take the win over Mark McCambridge and Mark Corry. The second heat saw Ally Neill the first to show, before a yellow caution period for the stricken Martin O'Donovan. The restart saw a number of penalties handed out as some were much too eager to get back into action, whilst up front Irish Champion Richard Stewart found a way past Neill to take the victory. Ally held on for second ahead of Jordan Rochford.
Stewart and Rochford shared the front row for the Tullyroan Challenge Cup final, only for Stewart to overcook things into turn one and allow his cousin Aaron Stewart through to the lead. Things were very slippery underfoot as the drivers were quickly finding out, and a three abreast moment at the end of a breathtaking opening lap saw Neill through to the lead ahead of Corry, with both Stewart's and Rochford now gathering themselves together but way down the order. As Corry put pressure on the leader, Rochford's fightback saw him right there once again in third. Corry then departed the lead pack after a mistake on turn two, but up front Neill held Rochford off all the way home to land the biggest win of his career so far, and in some style too. Rochford, Aaron Stewart, Vince Litter and McCambridge filled the places.

The 1300 Stock Cars also gridded their best turnout of the season so far in the second round of the Ryan Wright Signs Iron Man Series, and they produced some great heavy metal contact. An all action final exploded into life in the closing stages, when Aaron Rainey challenged long time leader Jack Kearney. Adrian McKinstry came in hard with the bumper too, and down the back straight for the final time they were in the wall and on the grass - in fact they were heading every direction but the right one! Kearney pulled all together to just get over the line first, but unfortunately he was later removed from the win due to a technical issue in post race scrutineering. That handed the trophy and race tyre from the series sponsors to Rainey ahead of McKinstry and Ivan Elliott. Earlier Thomas McCrory inherited the heat one win after Kearney's load up, with McKinstry the victor in heat two.

The Rookie Bangers returned for another excellent outing, with plenty of action on track to entertain the spectators. Ben McKenna went ahead early in heat one before Paul O'Connor took up the running. Just when Paul looked home and dry, he collected a spinning Killian Eager and his race was run. That handed the advantage to Sammy Fisher who took the win over Ger O'Beirne and Rodney Herron's VW Beetle. Heat two had an early stoppage when Fisher lost a wheel, before Peter McKenna-Murray blasted ahead to take the win. O'Beirne held on well to take the runner up slot again despite the best efforts of others to stop him.
There was plenty of action during the feature race final too, and that despite a lot of fluid going down on the track which slowed the pace considerably. Christy Bradley coped admirably with the conditions as he took an excellent win, with Fisher good value in second ahead of Trevor Farrell and Thomas Megarry.

Thomas Morrison set the early pace in the opening 2.0 Hot Rods heat as they chased points in their final World Championship qualifier. At mid distance he succumbed to pressure from Ryan McClure, and McClure sped home to record the win over Adam Best and European Champion Stephen Emerson. Morrison was again the first to show in heat two, and this time he was challenged by a rapid Stuart Cochrane who was making a quick return to the cockpit having broken his wrist last weekend. Morrison called on all his years of racing experience to withstand the pressure and take a very welcome win, his first in the formula. Cochrane and Emerson followed him home.
The final was all about Emerson though, the European Champion blasting past Morrison on lap nine to motor ahead and take the silverware ahead of Cochrane and Feargal McNally.

The young stars of the Ninja Karts rounded out the programme, with recent newcomer Max Hobson impressing in the opening heat as he led for much of the distance. He was pipped at the post however by Aaron Ward, who went past on the run to the flag to take a great win over Hobson and Samuel Percy. Hobson made no mistake in heat two, racing clear of the field to take his first ever win after a great drive. Daniel Stewart and Corey Stirling filled out the places.
The feature race final over the extra distance was always going to be interesting once Hobson again grabbed an impressive lead early on. The star men were bearing down on him fast, and only for a slight hesitation amongst backmarkers Max could well have taken his first ever final win. The beneficiary was Stirling, as he swooped past on the final lap to take the chequered flag and the silverware, with Stewart grabbing second ahead of Hobson who was undoubtedly the star of the night.
Many thanks to our meeting sponsors, Hollytree Rare Breed Farm
