Bank Holiday Aghadowey Success For Cardwell
An entertaining Bank Holiday meeting at Aghadowey Oval on Thursday saw Ballinderry's Jonny Cardwell take the big win of the day as he was victorious in the second round of the MR Fabrications Challenge Series for Stock Rods. An entertaining, if somewhat controversial, Reliant Robins King of Aghadowey fell to Ballymoney stalwart Ian Bolton, whilst other feature race wins at the LJN Designs of Ballykelly sponsored meeting went the way of Garvagh's William McFaul (ProStocks), Portadown's Daniel Stewart (Ninja Karts) and Ballymoney's Steven Elder (Thunder Rods).

Gareth Bevan led the opening Stock Rod heat away, but he quickly lost out to Curtis Greer who stamped his authority all over the proceedings to take a clear win. Jonny Cardwell got the better of an intriguing fight with Victor McAfee for second. It was wet for heat two, and Cardwell went one better this time by taking a very impressive win over Greer, after Shane McMillan had been docked two places for late contact on Curtis. The final was the second round of the lucrative MR Fabrications Challenge Series, with a Yokohama race tyre up for grabs courtesy of series sponsor Michael Rodgers. Greer led them away and it developed into a high speed train lapping the circuit. Cardwell showed his intent a few times but it was going to be a very difficult pass, but then heartbreak struck for Greer as his car suddenly lost power and he retired. That left Cardwell clear out front, and he swept home ahead of McAfee and World Champion Marc Morrell, the latter sporting the gold roof on home turf for the first time.

The Reliant Robins rarely disappoint on Bank Holiday Aghadowey outings, and they produced the goods once again racing for their King of Aghadowey crown. Neil Martin took the opening heat win in some style, holding off a closing Ian Bolton on his return to action and Irish Champion John Stewart. Heat two saw a stoppage for a dramatic double rollover for JayJay McConaghie and Mark McCartan. At the restart Bolton and Stewart diced for the lead all the way home, with Ian taking the flag after John's late challenge saw him finish up on his side on the infield! As if in sympathy, Ian then rolled on the slowing down lap!
The King of Aghadowey final saw Bolton and Stewart dice for the lead early on, before John slipped ahead. He had some trouble with the backmarking McConaghie a few laps from home, before it all flared up again on the final lap. McConaghie unnecessarily got involved with Stewart, baulking John and ultimately taking him from the lead and a certain win. Bolton thus inherited the win and the King of Aghadowey title ahead of Martin, with Haley Bevan coming through for third.

The ProStocks produced three entertaining encounters, all after recently crowned British Champion Adam White was paraded to the crowd before racing started. Joe Largey, who is enjoying a great debut season in the formula, swept home to the win in the opener ahead of William McFaul and Karl Smyth, with White next up after the bumpers went flying in on the last bend. Heat two in the wet fell to Coleraine's Del McLaughlin, who led home McFaul and Largey.
Two runner up slots in the heats should have served notice of McFaul's intentions in the final, and after a very untidy start, especially from the star graders, he worked his way ahead of the pack. Mark McLaughlin went second but couldn't quite challenge McFaul who took a very deserved win, with Stephen Boyd in third.

The Ninja Karts field was boosted by two new drivers, as both Lauren Berry and Rhea McConkey passed their Junior Competence tests before racing and took their place on the grid for the first time. Rhea impressed as she went ahead in the opening heat, but the flying Sam Percy soon took over out front for a very good victory indeed. Daniel Stewart, fresh from his victory lap to celebrate his recent big Ipswich win, came home second ahead of Aaron Ward. The second heat was all about Stewart, who made a flying start from the red grade to quickly slot through into the lead. He took the victory in some style over Ward and Percy.
Lauren Berry made the early moves in the final, impressively leading the pack in her first ever meeting. Stewart once again however had the bit between his teeth in this one, racing home to his second win of the day over Ward and Irish Champion Stewart Hanna. Daniel thus earned a rise to the Superstar grade for his next meeting.

A competitive field of Thunder Rods once again produced some excellent racing, with Chrissy Dempsey taking the opening heat at a canter ahead of a huge battle for second which ultimately fell to Jason Darragh ahead of Gareth Robinson, the latter of whom made great strides on the outside line late on. After some post race technical checks, the second heat went the way of Andrew McLean in the wet ahead of Irish Champion Samuel Montgomery, whilst the feature race final fell to the returning Steven Elder after a great drive, with Robinson and McLean filling out the top three.

The Bank Holiday Caravan Destruction Derby started with David McKinnon entertaining by demolishing everything in his path until his Volvo expired. The rapid Hyundai of Brian Johnston looked good until he too went out, leaving Joe and Hailey McFaul to battle through the carnage. Hailey came out on top to take a popular and deserving victory.
