Emotional Win For Cherry & Last Gasp Elliott Lands Irish Open
The weather may have tried its best to dampen the spirits at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday night, but the drivers put on an excellent show for all the race fans in attendance. Local driver Allen Cherry took an emotional victory in the Lee Cherry Memorial Trophy for 2.0 Hot Rods, whilst Rathfriland’s Ivan Elliott took a fantastic last-gasp win in the 1300 Stock Cars Irish Open Championship, having tracked Scotsman Gary Nicholls for much of the race.
Nigel Jackson produced a wet weather masterclass in the Lightning Rods, young Sam McNeice from Randalstown grabbed Stock Rods glory whilst Loughgall’s Jonny Murdock took a Final and Destruction Derby double in the Micro Bangers.

Welcome Co Cork visitor Ian Riordan joined the local 2.0 Hot Rod stars to defend the Lee Cherry Memorial Trophy, held annually in memory of the popular former racer. Jordan Rochford made short work of the greasy conditions to win the opening heat ahead of Allen Cherry, the latter making a return to racing after a lay off due to injury. Drew McKeown took the spoils in heat two, easily racing home ahead of Scott Cochrane and Denver Grattan.
The final paired Rochford and McKeown on the front row, and a superb battle developed over the opening laps. They both had a spell out front, as had Cherry, as the lead was swapped on numerous occasions. But Cherry was the one to make it stick, edging clear to race home to a very popular and poignant victory in a race that means so much to the Cherry family. On a very emotional podium, Allen was joined by runner up Rochford and third placed Gary Butler.

A whole host of very welcome English and Scottish visitors joined the locals for the 1300 Stock Cars Irish Open Championship. The bumpers were put to good use in the opener as Scotsman Gary Nicholls took the win over England’s Jacob Roff, after Antrim’s Stephen McCready was demoted from second for jumping the start. The action continued in the second heat, with Nicholls again taking the win over Roff once again, with McCready this time taking third.
The final was lined up on aggregate points and with top performers Nicholls and Roff sharing the front row, we also had some of the star men a little closer to the sharp end of proceedings. The sparks flew right from the off as the drivers got well and truly stuck in, with one of the Mathieson brothers from Scotland going for a particularly wild ride down the home straight in the midst of the pack. Nicholls held the lead from the off, but for the whole duration of the race he was tracked by Ivan Elliott. That was until the very last bend, when Elliott came in with a huge hit, sending Nicholls around the wall and allowing Ivan to nip through on the inside to land the title win in some style. Nicholls and fellow Scotsman Kyle Hegg completed the podium after an excellent evening’s entertainment.

A slightly depleted Lightning Rods entry saw two heat wins for Ronan McNally in the slippery conditions. Ronan led home a fast looking Stuart Agnew in the opener and Aaron Brunton in heat two, after newcomer Daniel Rodgers had impressed as he led the opening laps of both races.
Rodgers and Brunton had spells out front in the final, but it was renowned ‘rain master’ Nigel Jackson who produced a masterclass of wet weather driving to leave all the others trailing in his wake. Nigel took a fine feature race win ahead of Agnew and Mark McCambridge.

NI Points Champion Adam McFall was the star turn in the Stock Rod heats, racing from the back of the grid on both occasions to take the victory. Heat one saw him relegate early leader Mark Kilpatrick to take the win ahead of Marc Morrell, before swooping past long time leader Robert McIlroy in heat two to take his second win of the night over Sam McNeice.
McIlroy and Willie Taggart had a great side-by-side scrap for the lead early in heat two, before Mark Crawford moved ahead to take up the running as McFall’s hat-trick bid faltered with mechanical woes.. Mark’s fellow Junior Productions graduate McNeice was the one to watch though, Sam moving ahead to take his first ever senior victory after a very solid drive indeed. Crawford, Shane McMillan and Dan Shannon filled the places.

The Micro National Bangers produced some fine racing and crashing during the night, with Loughgall’s Jonny Murdock coming through the chaos of the main race to land the Micro Madness final over Leonard Dunn and Mike Flaherty. Dunn had led until punted wide late on by Murdock.
The Allcomers race saw Dunn hit the front early on, before Flaherty powered ahead to take the win, having even survived a grassy excursion when a number of cars clashed directly ahead of him. Rodney Herron and Sean Flaherty filled the places, before a bruising Destruction Derby fell to Murdock after Dunn and Sean Flaherty just fell short. Mike Flaherty also had a rollover in this one to keep everyone entertained!
