Major Title Wins for Stewart, Haugh, Jackson and Meek at Aghadowey
A feast of championship action was served up at Aghadowey Oval on Saturday evening, with a number of titles up for grabs. Some fantastic racing saw Nutts Corner’s Ryan Stewart take the 1300 Stock Cars National Championship, whilst the ProStocks World Cup fell the way of Portadown’s Steven Haugh for the second time. There was a record seventh Irish Championship victory for Nigel Jackson as the Portadown man stormed to Lightning Rods glory, whilst Lurgan’s Graham Meek was crowned Irish Champion in the Junior Productions. The final class on show were the Thunder Rods, with Chris Baird from Donemana taking the honours.
Before racing commenced there was a minute's applause in memory of circuit founder Tommy Shaw who passed away recently.

Some high quality visitors joined the local 1300 Stock Car aces for the National Championship, with two graded heats used to determine the grid for the title race. Gareth Halliday was the one to watch in the opener, the young Banbridge ace racing to victory over England’s Ben White and recently crowned Irish Champion Ryan Stewart. Heat two saw White go one better and take the flag for the visitors, leading home Halliday and Calvin Blake.
Halliday and White shared the front row for the National Championship final, and as expected there was drama right from the off. The bumpers were well and truly put to good use over the opening lap, and as things settled down Stewart had blasted through to the lead. Ryan reeled off the remaining laps to land the National title, with Blake just getting the better of a great scrap with English star Jacob Bromley to snatch second on the final turn.

The grid for the ProStocks World Cup was disappointing to say the least, but those on track did their best to put on some fantastic racing. There was action all the way as Joe Largey took the first heat over Dan Shannon, before Shannon took the honours in heat two over William McFaul. The start to the World Cup race was simply phenomenal, as the bumpers well and truly went in throughout the field. The shake up saw Dylan Booth sensationally out front, before Steven Haugh punted him wide to move ahead. Haugh led them all the way home for his second World Cup triumph, whilst Sam Stewart cruelly retired within sight of the flag whilst second. That saw Shannon take the runner up slot ahead of Scottish visitor Ian Christie.
Largey completed the evening by taking the Irish Open title with a well timed hit on Shannon on the final bend.

Defending champion Nigel Jackson and British Champion Jordan Rochford shared the front row for the Lightning Rods Irish Championship, and a great battle developed between the duo right from the off. Martin O’Flaherty clawed himself into contention too, and when he attacked Rochford for second it handed Jackson the opportunity he needed to pull clear. As Jackson checked out up front to take a record seventh Irish title victory, Rochford worked his way back to second ahead of a spirited drive from Mark Corry which netted him third spot.
The reverse grid Irish Revenge race saw a win for Ally Neill over James McKinney, Corry and Jackson.

The Irish Championship title was also up for grabs for the Junior Productions, with Graham Meek and Mark Crawford sharing the front row on points scored across the season. Meek was the first to show up front ahead of Crawford, with Sam McNeice working his way to third as the lead battle involved eight cars at one stage. Crawford made his move for the lead but just couldn’t make it stick, Meek holding on the record a deserved victory. McNeice took a great second spot with Crawford driving superbly to work his way back to a creditable third spot over the closing stages.
The reverse grid Irish Revenge race saw Jack Morrow show the rest a clean pair of heels as he took the win over McNeice and Crawford.

The Thunder Rods completed the race programme, with close competitive action as always. David Baird accounted for both heat wins from the yellow grade, and even with an upgrade for the final he soon was ahead. His brother Chris was right on his tail though, and the Donemana man pulled off a great pass to take the lead and the win. David held on for second ahead of James Goldie in third.
