Boyd Wins Rookies Irish as McKeown and Jackson Excel
A fantastic Sunday afternoon’s race action at Tullyroan Oval saw Garvagh’s Stephen Boyd win an exciting Rookie Bangers Irish Championship. There was some top quality racing on show throughout the meeting, with recently crowned European Champion Drew McKeown from Bleary hitting the outside line to win the Grand Final of the Hoosier Tyres Challenge Series for 2.0 Hot Rods.
Local favourite Nigel Jackson was another who pulled off a superb final victory, this time in the Lightning Rods, whilst other feature race winners were Portadown duo Daniel Stewart in the Junior Productions Tullyroan Challenge Cup and Rab Preston in the Thunder Rods.

A full grid well in excess of 30 cars lined up in season points order for the Rookie Bangers Irish Championship. There was a great race out front amongst the top drivers, with polesitter William McFaul and John Goligher both enjoying spells in the lead. There were incidents galore around the circuit for the drivers to avoid, but Stephen Boyd managed to surge ahead in the midway point of the race to land the title after a great drive. McFaul took second ahead of Marc Morrell.
The first support heat saw Gavin Gamble lead most of the way before McFaul nipped past on the final bend to win. Heat two saw another action packed encounter, with Josh Goligher taking the win in this one.

The opening 2.0 Hot Rods heat fell to David Kernohan who took a fine win ahead of a huge places scrap which eventually saw Allen Cherry take second over Colin McFarland. Heat two had Ronan McNally ahead, only for him to be challenged by Ally Neill late on. Neill made a spirited charge on the outside line, with McNally holding on by a hairs breadth at the flag.
The Grand Final of the Hoosier Tyres Challenge Series was lined up in aggregate series order, which saw Scott Cochrane and Mervyn Emerson sharing the front row. Cochrane quickly settled into the lead ahead of Drew McKeown, and after a fantastic first half of the race McKeown was able to haul himself right around the outside to grab the lead. It was a remarkable drive from a teenager who is right on top of his game at present. As Drew took the win, Cochrane and Emerson completed the top three, and they all received new race tyres courtesy of the sponsors Hoosier UK.

Both Lightning Rods heats fell to the BMW of Dean Catherwood, as he led home Nigel Jackson in the opener with World Champ Ricky Shaw second in heat two.
Those wins elevated Catherwood to the star grade for the final, but he was still to be a major player in a superb race. Aaron Brunton led initially before Martin O’Flaherty took over, with Catherwood chasing hard in second ahead of Stuart Agnew and Jackson. With the top four running nose to tail, Jackson wasted little time in hitting the outside line. In a fantastic drive he surged right around the top three to hit the front and take the silverware in emphatic style. Catherwood and Agnew filled the podium spots at the end of a great race.

Daniel Stewart took a clear win in the opening Junior Productions heat ahead of Jack Morrow, before Lauren Berry took a popular heat two win over Aaron Dynes.
The final for the Tullyroan Challenge Cup was all about Stewart and Morrow for much of the distance, with Daniel ahead but Jack trying everything he had to get past on both the inside and outside lines. It was a great race for the fans to enjoy, with Stewart just hanging on to win. Matthew Weir nabbed second near the end as the lead pack tripped over some backmarkers, with Morrow having to make do with third having driven a great race.

Jason Darragh was the winner of the first Thunder Rods heat ahead of Adam Graham, before Rick Purdy took heat two ahead of Rab Preston. That was perhaps a sign of things to come for Preston, and he then ran down long time final leader Tom Archibald to take the honours in the feature race. Graham took another second place finish ahead of Archibald and Purdy at the flag.
