McKeown & Johnston Take Irish Titles At Tullyroan
On an action packed night of championship race action at Tullyroan Oval, Bleary’s Drew McKeown was crowned 2.0 Hot Rods Irish Champion and young Larne star Charlie Johnston took the Irish Championship victory for Ninja Karts.

There were also a pair of Tullyroan Challenge Cups up for decision, with Glenavy’s Jonny Cardwell taking the Stock Rods title and Donemana driver Christopher Baird taking the Thunder Rods version. A heat and final double for teenager Graham Meek in the Superstox completed the programme.

Lined up on season long points order, Scott Cochrane and World Champion Jordan Rochford shared the front row for the 2.0 Hot Rods Irish Championship. After an unsatisfactory start was called first time around, things were much cleaner at the second time of asking. Cochrane led them off, but recent form man McKeown sniffed the slightest of gaps up the inside on the Annaghmore Bend and he hit the front. From there Drew extended his advantage, controlling the race from the front and speeding home to add the Irish title to the European crown he landed last month. Conor Hughes made good progress to take second ahead of Cochrane, Rochford and Allen Cherry.
The Irish Revenge race saw a clear win for Gary Fowler ahead of Jordan McCann and Adam Heatrick.

Riley Dawson-Stirling and Coalan Fegan shared the front row for what would become a classic race for the Ninja Karts Irish Championship. Jack Morrison got the initial jump from row two to take the lead, which he held until past the halfway mark. A whole bunch of drivers were right in contention in a fantastic dice, with Noah Teggart coming to challenge for the lead. He and Morrison clashed into turn one, and in an amazing move Charlie Johnston swooped right around them both to hit the front. Teggart came back hard to get alongside Charlie on the run to the flag, but the young Larne star held on to land the Irish Championship title after a super drive. Following post race technical checks, the results from second place down remain under appeal.
The Irish Revenge race saw a first ever victory for Jack Murphy after a great drive to hold off the advances of Keegan Turtle.

Another very healthy field of Stock Rods were present to contest the Tullyroan Challenge Cup. NI Points Champion Dan Shannon wasted little time in stamping his authority all over the opening heat, taking the win over Jonny Cardwell and impressive teenager Declan McGrath. Heat two saw a McNiece benefit, with Stevie taking the win over his brother Colin and then Cardwell in third.
The stand out performer from the heats was Cardwell, and he duly took pole position for the final on aggregate points. Jonny continually edged clear out front, controlling things all the way home to the chequered flag. Colin and Stevie McNiece completed the podium places ahead of recent returnee Adam Sloan and Samuel Wilson.

The Superstox saw a first home appearance at Tullyroan Oval for Aughnacloy’s Kyle Beattie sporting the gold roof of World Champion. Troy Crawford set the pace in the first heat, before Graham Meek slipped past to take the win over Curtis Greer and Craig McConnell. Heat two followed a similar path, with Crawford and Meek out front before this time Greer came through with just one lap to go to take the lead and the win over McConnell and Meek.
Meek again worked his way ahead in the final, but in the latter stages he had a whole host of star drivers chasing hard, headed by Irish Champion Jordan Robinson, Beattie, Jamie McCann and McConnell. Former Junior Productions Irish Champion Meek is made of stern stuff though, and he staved off all their advances to take the win and complete his double for the evening. McCann took second after a late race mix up amongst the placemen, with Beattie, McConnell and Robinson next home.

The opening Thunder Rods heat fell to Ballycastle driver Andrew McLean ahead of David Wilson and Jason Darragh, before the reversed grid second race went the way of Donemana’s Christopher Baird from James Goldie and Ryan Nixon.
Baird and Goldie shared the front row for the Tullyroan Challenge Cup Final, which turned out to be a tremendous scrap. Baird, Goldie, Daniel Rodgers, Wilson and McLean never had much between them in a five car lead battle. Baird held his nerve and the lead all the way home, taking a fine win ahead of Goldie and Rodgers after another great outing for the formula at Tullyroan.
