Perfect conditions led to some high speed race action at Aghadowey Oval on Saturday evening, with some fine action served up by all five formulas on display. The main event was the third round of the Hankook Performance Tyres National Hot Rods World Series NI, which saw a heat and final double fall the way of Portadown's Mark Heatrick. Dungannon's Thomas Dilly took the win in the Classic Hot Rods King of Aghadowey, with Portadown driver Jordan Rochford (Lightning Rods) and Banbridge ace Gary Grattan (Superstox) the other big winners at the Ross Hyndman Motors sponsored event.

Nineteen cars were gathered in the pits for the third round of Hankook Performance Tyres World Series NI, although we lost Sticky Torrens during the heat one installation laps when his throttle stuck sending him headlong into the wall. Mark Heatrick lead home Shane Murray in this one to take first blood for the evening, even surviving a mid race caution period when Andrew Stewart lost a wheel. Murray went one better in the second encounter, racing home clear of Gary Woolsey and Heatrick.
Heatrick broke clear early on in the final, with Woolsey and Murray dicing for second. Murray eventually got past to give chase to the leader, and slowly but surely eroded Heatrick's quarter lap advantage. The heat was now most definitely on, but try as he may Murray just couldn't dislodge Mark from the top spot. Heatrick thus took the double for the evening ahead of Murray and Jaimie McCurdy.

The Lightning Rods were racing in Round 2 of their 2ke Engineering Challenge Series, and there were class debuts for former ProStocks World Cup Champion Tam Agnew and for James Litter too, whilst Jonny McMillan was back in the formula for the first time in many years. Vince Litter has found himself downgraded to yellow top after a horrid run of luck, and he made no mistake to land victory at a canter in both heats. In the opener he led home a very impressive Dermot Tynan and Scott Cochrane, before Cochrane and Jordan Rochford chased him home in heat two.
The final saw Litter on pole but with his challengers much closer in the closed grid formation. Vince led them away, but was soon challenged by Cochrane up the inside. Vince closed the door hard indeed, the resulting melee seeing Cochrane unfortunately spin out of contention. European Champion Rochford came through to challenge for the lead, and after many attempts to get past he finally found a way down the inside into turn one. Jordan pulled ahead to record a clear win and collect the trophy and voucher from the series sponsors. Litter and Ricky Shaw filled the podium places.

Track photographer Brian Lammey swapped his camera for a steering wheel to join the Superstox action for the night, and heat one was led away by David Beattie, before he tangled with Greg Hyndman. The resulting caution period brought the star men into play, with Irish Champion Denver Grattan (at the wheel of the usual Gary Chambers car) taking the win over Lee Davison. Davison went one better in heat two to take a clear win over D Grattan and Aaron McNeilly.
Chris McArdle made the early running in the final, and at a stage had quite a handy lead built up. But this time Gary Grattan and Davison were coming on strong, with Gary going in for a big hit to dislodge the leader into turn three. Gary turned on the style as he took the Ross Hyndman Motors trophy, with Davison and McNeilly the feature race placemen.

Welcome Scottish visitor Kenny Purdie boosted the ranks of the Classic Hot Rods as they contested the King of Aghadowey title. Kenny Wilson led both heats early on, but in the first of the evening it was Purdie who got the best of a great scrap to take the win. Gary O'Neill was the man who came out on top in the second heat, gaining pole position for the final in the process.
O'Neill led them away in the final, but Thomas Dilly found a way under him to power ahead and home to the King of Aghadowey title win. O'Neill took second and with it a new tyre courtesy of Dilly Roofing Supplies as best points scorer of the day, with Purdie in third.

The budget Thunder Rods were also contesting their King of Aghadowey title, but some great racing on track was blighted by controversy in the technical area after the final race of the evening. For the record Samuel Montgomery and Gareth Robinson shared the heat wins, with Robinson leading the pack home on track in the final. All results have been suspended however, pending an enquiry by the DMC Race Promotions technical team.

Portadown's Daniel Stewart produced a stunning drive in the Ninja Karts Golden Helmet at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday night, taking victory after a superbly executed challenge for the lead on the final lap of the feature race. The perfect conditions led to some fast and furious racing, with the other final wins at the Hollytree Rare Breeds Farm sponsored meeting falling to Stephen Emerson (2.0 Hot Rods), Steven Haugh (ProStocks), Curtis Greer (Stock Rods) and Adam McFall (Junior Productions).

Two graded heats decided the grid for the Ninja Karts Golden Helmet final, and the first to show in the opener was recent newcomer Lauren Berry. Amy Morrow was also in action on her debut in the formula, but it was her brother Jack who was the man to watch in this one as he scythed through into the lead. He was tracked all the way by Sam Percy, but Morrow was able to hang on for a great win. Percy and Morrow again contested the lead in heat two after Ryan Berry led them away, and this time it was Sam who held on for a popular win over Jack. Two of the fancied superstar drivers felt the wrath of Race Control in this one, with disqualifications handed out to both Daniel Stewart and Stewart Hanna for spinning other karts out of contention.
J Morrow and Percy shared the front row of the grid for the Golden Helmet final, with Percy quickly stretching into a clear lead. Heavy backmarking traffic was thwarting Sam's progress however, with Stewart sensationally coming into contention having started well down the grid. He edged closer and closer until he was within striking distance as they took the last lap marker, before finding a gap down the inside into the final bend to take a dramatic and well deserved win. Percy signed off from his Ninja Kart career with second as he has now reached the upper age limit, with Hanna rounding out the podium in third.

Amongst a pleasing entry of 2.0 Hot Rods were class debuts for Samuel Murphy and Michael Woods, with Kieran Casey a welcome addition too. Pat Casey and Colin McFarland disputed the lead in the opening heat, before Sean Dynes got a great run around the outside to take a super win ahead of Allen Cherry and European Champion Stephen Emerson. It was frantic up front in heat two as well, with Cherry this time getting the better of Pat Casey on the outside line to take the win in his new Peugeot. Ryan McClure and P Casey filled the places.
The final was for the second round of the Hoosier Racing Tires Challenge Series, and the closed grid paired Cherry and Emerson on row one. Cherry led them away but was under pressure early on, with Emerson getting the slightest of gaps down the inside into turn one to take the lead and the win. He received a new tyre courtesy of Hoosier, with Cherry and Stuart Cochrane filling the places.

There was also mini-series action for the ProStocks, as they contested the second round of the McElmeel Mobility Services Challenge Series. Lee McCloy and Norman Purdy disputed the lead early in the opener, and despite Irish Champion Dan Shannon coming on strong nearing the end, it was McCloy who hung on for the win. The same duo disputed the early exchanges of heat two once again, before Joe Largey bumpered his way by in great style on the final bend to take the victory over Purdy and McCloy.
To say the final was dramatic would be an understatement! There was plenty of contact and places exchanged early on from the closed grid, with British and Irish Open Champion Adam White eventually moving clear. As he stretched away, a huge battle was raging between Stephen Boyd, Steven Haugh and Shannon for second. Purdy then suffered a huge engine detonation heading towards turn three, with the resultant oil taking a few into the wall and out of the race. The resultant caution period completely wiped out White's huge lead, and it was game on at the restart. As White tried to make good his escape again, Haugh came in hard with the bumper to take a great, if unlikely at one stage, victory. White chased him home with Dylan Booth in third.

The Stock Rods were boosted by welcome visitors Paddy O'Dwyer and Colm O'Sullivan, and also debutant Stuart Agnew. The opener proved to be the race of the night, producing close, fantastic dicing which the Stock Rods are renowned for. Curtis Greer wrestled the lead from pacesetter Gareth Bevan, before Irish Open Champion Jonny Cardwell arrived to challenge. Cardwell tried all he could on the outside line, but despite spending lap after lap alongside Greer it was Curtis who got the nod on the line with the race fans applauding them under the flag such was the quality of the race. Greer completely fluffed his start in heat two, and that opened the door for Irish Champion Derek McMillan to power through to the win over Stevie McNiece and Victor McAfee.
Greer once again dominated the final, but the victory he eventually grabbed was far from easy. McNiece broke free from the red grade to chase Curtis hard, running down his lead as they entered the final stages. Former World Champion McNiece looked outside to challenge for the win, but Greer had it covered as he took his second win of the night. McNiece and Shane McMillan completed the podium.

Former Ninja Kart star Aaron Ward was a debutant in the Junior Productions, as another Ninja Kart star of the past Callum Magill led for most of the distance in the opening heat. NI Points Champion Drew McKeown found a gap down the inside on the final lap to take the win. Magill made no mistake in heat two, racing home to his first ever win in the formula over Adam McFall and McKeown.
The final came under caution early on when Graham Meek spun on the home straight, with the resulting caution wiping out Magill's early advantage. Gareth Halliday then moved to the front, before he was demoted by a flying McFall who found the slightest of gaps down the inside. Adam then edged clear to take a fantastic and morale boosting win in his Corsa, with Matthew Nicholl and McKeown chasing him home after another night of excellent racing from the young drivers.
