A fantastic night’s entertainment was served up by the drivers at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday evening, with Aughnacloy’s Kyle Beattie taking victory in the feature event, The Moffett Shield for Superstox. Kyle held off a record domestic field of nineteen cars to land the win, whilst fellow Aughnacloy man Adam Best raced to victory in the second round of the 2.0 Hot Rods Hoosier Challenge Series. A controversial Junior Productions final saw Portadown’s James Stewart declared the winner of the second round of the Collision Accident Management Young Guns Series, whilst Glenavy’s Dan Shannon was the ProStocks winner and Limavady’s Josh Goligher took the Back to Basics Bangers honours at the Hollytree Rare Breeds Farm sponsored meeting.

A record nineteen Superstox gathered to contest the annual Moffett Shield, with David Beattie the first to show in the opening heat on a slippery track. Sean Mark was making excellent progress from the rear of the line up, and he swooped to the lead with five laps to go to take the win over Kyle Beattie and Stephen Stewart. World Champion Lee Davison found the wall on the last bend but still grabbed fourth, but the damage he obtained would rule him out for the remainder of the evening which handed victory in the season long World Championship qualifying points race to Mark. Heat two was very lively too with plenty of blows exchanged between the frontrunners. David Beattie led early on once again before losing out to Keith McAreavey, but this time Kyle Beattie pounced with four to go to take the win over Stewart and Jordan Robinson.
David Beattie again was the first to show in the Moffett Shield final until he hit trouble and retired on lap eight. Greg Hyndman took over up front but he soon had a posse of star names on his tail. Jordan Robinson briefly went ahead before he ran into issues, handing the lead to Kyle Beattie who raced home to his second win of the night to land the magnificent Moffett Shield. Stewart and Aaron McNeilly completed the podium whilst Hyndman received the best white/ yellow grade driver award. The night was completed by an entertaining Dash for Cash from a closed grid, and after plenty of swapping of the lead position it was Conor Murphy who took the win.

The 2.0 Hot Rods had an impressive field on track once again for round two of the Hoosier Racing Tyres Challenge Series, including formula debuts for former F2 star Ryan McCrory and former Stock Rod racer Johnny McCloy. Gary Fowler led from the off in the opening heat, but as the laps dwindled down he became embroiled in a huge six car battle for the lead. Gary just managed to hang on for the win ahead of Davy Potter and Denver Grattan in a superb finish. Jonny McMillan was the man on a mission in the second heat, as he led all the way home to record a morale boosting win. Star man Adam Best was making huge strides towards the front, but he had to be content with second ahead of Ryan McClure and Allen Cherry.
The final was lined up on aggregate point from the heats, with Best blasting clear immediately from pole position. McClure and Conor Hughes were running second and third respectively, but many eyes were on former British Champion Stuart Cochrane who was making huge progress. Stuart worked his way through to second and began to reel in leader Best, arriving right on his tail as Adam got caught up with battling backmarkers. Best held his nerve superbly to take the win and the new race tyre courtesy of the series sponsors, with Cochrane unfortunately docked from second to fourth for contact early in the race. That elevated McClure and Hughes to the podium places.

The Junior Productions saw debuts for Shane O’Connor and the superbly presented new car of Rhianna Murray as they contested round two of the Collision Accident Management Young Guns Series. Jack Morrow relieved early pacesetter Daniel Stewart of the lead in the opening heat, Jack racing home to the win over Graham Meek and Jordan Nicholl. Heat two saw a great drive by Irish Open Champion Mark Crawford, as he raced past Nicholl and Morrow to take the win over Matthew Nicholl and Morrow.
Morrow and Meek shared the front row for the final on aggregate points, as the young stars set up for what was an explosive and controversial feature race. There was a lot of contact amongst the front runners early on as the lead changed hands a number of times, which led to a lenghthy Stewards Enquiry after the chequered flag. Ultimately the first four cars over the line - Crawford, Meek, Nicholl and Morrow – were all docked places in the final analysis, handing the victory, and the race shop voucher from the sponsors, to James Stewart ahead of Sam Percy.

Jonny Peoples set the pace in the opening ProStocks heat, but he lost out to a flying Steven Haugh who took the win over Sam Stewart and Dylan Booth. Heat two saw Peoples and Stewart have spells out front before Haugh again stormed through to victory over British Champion Dan Shannon. Haugh and Joe Largey got themselves involved early in the final, and that was all the invitation Shannon needed to stretch clear to take the silverware over Stewart and the recovering Haugh.

The Back to Basics Bangers completed the programme, with the heats shared between Tyler Goligher and former ProStocks ace Stefan McClelland. Come the final though it was all about Josh Goligher, as he raced home to victory over McClelland and Rodney Herron.

Two days of great racing entertained the race fans over the two days of the Aghadowey Oval Speedweekend, with an international entry contesting British Championship titles across three classes. Middlesex driver Dan Smith took the honours in the Maxwell Freight Services 2.0 Hot Rods title race, whilst Portadown’s Jordan Rochford raced to victory in the Corry Body Repairs Lightning Rods British showdown. The young stars in the Ninja Karts were spectacular throughout the weekend, with Scotland’s Bailey Millar grabbing the LJN Motorsport British title honours after a race long scrap.

An excellent field of 2.0 Hot Rods from across the British Isles contested three qualifying heats to determine the grid for the Maxwell Freight Services British Championship. The opener saw a clear win for Hampshire driver Alex Crane ahead of Norfolk’s Robert Gamble and Dungannon veteran Davy Potter. Heat two saw Antrim’s former European Champion Stephen Emerson take the flag ahead of former double World Champion Wayne Woolsey, before another former European Champion in Gary Wilson took a clear win in heat three from Ryan McClure.
Potter and Mervyn Emerson shared the front row for the British final, with Potter getting edged wide into turn one as Stephen Emerson assumed control out front. Englishman Dan Smith was coming on strong as the race progressed, moving into second in the treacherous conditions to chase after the leader. S Emerson went on to take the chequered flag, but after a lengthy Stewards Enquiry he was docked places for the first lap contact on Potter. That handed the British title to a delighted Smith ahead of McClure in second. Stephen Emerson refused to accept his third placed trophy, and then next over the line Mervyn Emerson was excluded for a tyre logging error. That elevated Alex Crane to third place.

The reverse grid British Revenge race saw victory for World and European Champion Dave Leech from Stoke-on-Trent, before Smith made it a double for the day by taking the Irish Open Championship over Leech and Welsh racer Ryan Morgan as the visitors locked out the podium.

A full field of Lightning Rods contested two qualifiers to determine their Corry Body Repairs British Championship final grid. The opener saw a huge battle between Portadown’s Mark Corry and local Aghadowey ace Aaron Stewart, with the former World Champion Stewart trying the tough outside line for lap after lap. They were neck and neck on the run to the flag, with Corry getting the verdict by just seven thousandths of a second! Heat two saw England’s Reid Murray and Dungannon’s Ally Neill contesting the lead before they tangled and went out, which opened the door for former British Champion Jordan Rochford to race through to take the victory over Tim Hazlett and Nigel Jackson.
Rochford immediately hit the front in the British Championship race, as Barry Limer and Anthony Burgess went out whilst disputing second. That allowed another English star, Staffordshire’s Leyland Marson through to chase Rochford, but Jordan had everything under control and took the flag in style to record his second British title triumph. Marson was a creditable second after a sterling drive, with Ricky Shaw pipping Jackson for third nearing the end after a commendable drive from down the grid.
In the rain on day two, Jackson went around the outside of leader Burgess to take the opening heat, with Rochford taking the win in heat two. The final for the Corry Body Repairs Irish Open Championship saw Jackson excel in the slippery conditions to take the win over London driver Ashley Birkin and fellow Englishman Burgess.

The young 6-11 year old aces in the Ninja Karts never fail to disappoint, and they produced some spectacular racing around the tricky Aghadowey circuit. A full field from right across the British Isles contested the LJN Motorsport British Championship, with Cumbria’s Toby Tyson taking the opening heat ahead of fellow English drivers Kyle Wells and Calum Gould. Heat two saw European Champion Bailey Millar from Lanarkshire in Scotland take the win ahead of Oxfordshire’s Finley Kew and Josh Parfitt, before Portadown’s Max Hobson took the first local win of the day in the third heat ahead of Scotland’s Declan Dixon and Kew.
The talented Kew had superbly taken pole position for the British final, and he then led them away before Hobson hit the front willed on by a vocal local support. Millar was menacingly coming into contention though, and Bailey squeezed ahead with five laps to go to take up the running. There was a late caution period to add to the drama, but Millar had enough to hang on to add the British title to his collection. Hobson was great value in second ahead of Gould, Kew and Tyson after a tremendous encounter.
The reverse grid British Revenge race saw a fine win for Josh Parfitt who just pipped Thomas Percox on the run to the flag as the long time leader got baulked by a gaggle of backmarkers. The LJN Motorsport Irish Open Championship rounded off the weekend’s proceedings, with Millar racing home to his second title win of the weekend, this time over Parfitt and Gould.

Amongst the support formulas, Portadown’s Robbie Wright raced to a faultless hat-trick of victories in the 1300 Stock Cars Irish Masters, with Calvin Blake keeping him honest all the way in the final. Steven Elder took a heat and final double in the Thunder Rods whilst Marc Morrell and World Champion Lee Davison scooped the feature race wins in the Stock Rods and Superstox respectively.

Just prior to Saturday’s Speedweekend race meeting at Aghadowey Oval, Joey McConaghie, father of our resident Mr Starter JJ and grandfather of our track marshal Andrew McMaster, became ill at the trackside and despite the commendable efforts of the circuit medical team and the paramedics, sadly passed away. Joey was a popular and regular racegoer, never missing many meetings at both Aghadowey Oval and Tullyroan Oval.

Everyone at DMC Race Promotions would like to offer our sincere condolences to JJ, Andrew and all the McConaghie family at this sad time.

We would like to thank the circuit medical team, NIAS paramedics, DMC staff and everyone who helped out in numerous ways during the afternoon.

At the insistence of the McConaghie family, we ran a shortened programme of racing later on Saturday evening. We would also like to thank all the drivers and race fans for their patience and understanding during a very difficult situation.
