Mainland Drivers Take Two Big Wins At Tullyroan
There were mainland UK victories in two of the feature races at a baking hot Tullyroan Oval on Saturday night (September 9th). Perthshire driver James Mooney came out victorious in the third round of National Hot Rods World Series NI, whilst Berkshire ace Chris Bradbury won both the Superstox meeting final and the NIOvalTV/Spedeworth TV Shootout.
Glenavy’s Jonny Cardwell took the win in the Stock Rods Tullyroan Challenge Cup, with Garvagh’s William McFaul claiming the Tullyroan Challenge Cup for the Rookie Bangers. Portadown star Nigel Jackson took yet another Lightning Rods feature race win.

A sensational start to the night for the National Hot Rods saw a blanket finish to heat one amongst 10 or more cars, with Simon Kennedy getting the nod for a great win ahead of Podge McQuaid, James Mooney and John Christie. Heat two saw a tricky surface after a shower of rain, with former World Champion Keith Martin mastering the conditions to steer his Tigra to the win over Derek McMillan and Jeff Riordan.
The final of World Series NI Round 3 saw Scotsman Mooney relegate early leader Kenny McCann to take the lead, and as the rest squabbled over the places James made good his escape. That lead was eroded though due to a mid race caution period for a turn two incident, but James got the head down on the restart and once again edged clear of the pack to take an impressive win. Martin, Christie and Dean McCrory filled out the top four places.

The Superstox entry once again broke the 20-car barrier, with newly crowned World Champion Craig McConnell christening his gold roof with a win in the opening heat from the back of the grid. Conor Murphy just couldn’t withstand the last lap challenge but took second, ahead of Andrew Murphy and Jamie McCann. Heat two saw a huge battle between the superstar drivers which thwarted their progress, with Alan Haugh celebrating his return to racing with a great win ahead of Dean Catherwood and Graham Meek.
The final was run in damp conditions, which suited welcome visitor Chris Bradbury to a tee. He worked his way through the pack effortlessly, the former World Champion taking a clear win over Steven Haugh and Meek.
To round off the meeting we had a six car Shootout Final for the NIOvalTV/SpedeworthTV Series. Bradbury crept onto the back of the grid thanks to his final win, and after Jamie McCann skittled the pack on the first corner Chris accepted the gift of the lead and the win. David Beattie and David McMenemy followed Bradbury home, with all three receiving Trackshop vouchers from the sponsors.

The Tullyroan Challenge Cup was the first meeting for the Stock Rods on their new control Hooiser tyre, and it was quite fitting that the newly crowned World Champion Dan Shannon took the win over Stevie McNiece and Mark Foster. The reverse grid second heat saw Jonny Cardwell take the victory, with Sam Wilson and Sam McNeice chasing him across the line.
Sam McNeice was on pole for the final on aggregate points, and he grabbed the lead right from the off to control the race ahead of Cardwell. Just when Sam looked all set to record the victory, he was taken out of contention by an errant backmarker at half distance, and heartbreakingly was out of the race. Cardwell took up the running and took the Challenge Cup win over Stevie McNiece and Shannon.

The Rookie Bangers entertained all evening with some top class action. William McFaul won the opener ahead of Stephen Boyd and Josh Goligher, with a very lively second heat falling to Boyd ahead of Aaron McGraw and Marc Morrell.
McFaul led the opening laps of the Tullyroan Challenge Cup, but he got mixed up with backmarkers which allowed Morrell to hit the front. McFaul fought back with gusto though, retaking the top spot to claim the win over Morrell and Boyd.

There was a flag to flag victory in the opening Lightning Rods heat for Ian Hobson, as he just held off Mark McCambridge at the flag. McCambridge went one better in heat two, taking a deserved win ahead of James McKinney.
The final saw a damp track, and that’s where World, European and National Champion Nigel Jackson comes into his own. With ease he worked his way through the field to take the lead and the win, with McKinney and welcome Tipperary visitor Keith Kirwan in the podium places.
