An attractive six formula meeting takes place at Tullyroan Oval this Saturday evening, June 22nd, the last before the summer break at DMC Race Promotions.

The Superstox will compete for the coveted Neil Davison Memorial Cup, held annually now in memory of the popular former racer. His brother Lee Davison will defend the trophy, but will face stiff opposition from many angles, including the recent King of Aghadowey winner Jamie McCann. It is also the final round of the 2023/24 Mk2 Escort Shells & Spares NI Points Championship, which goes right down to the wire. After a great season Steven Haugh is just 7 points ahead of Davison in the standings, so it will all boil down to tonight’s action. Sadly Craig McConnell has retired from racing and he would have made it a three way fight for the title, and with it the prize of a draw for pole position in the World Final at Hednesford in August.

The 2L National Bangers have mustered a good grid for their Tullyroan Challenge Cup, which should see some great bashing and crashing as the drivers chase the win. Usual National Banger stars Dave Haugh, Stevo McGrath, Leonard Dunn and David Gurney will be amongst those in the midst of the action.

After a superb meeting last Saturday where the entry topped the 20 mark, the Junior Productions return for the Tullyroan Challenge Cup. Scottish Open Champion Callum Doak defends the trophy but there will be many hoping to take the win. Leyton Hughes was in storming form last weekend, taking the Golden Helmet win, and he will go close again alongside Andrew Russell, Irish and Irish Open Champion Matthew Weir and British Champion Casey Cherry to name a few.

It is also the final round of the 2.0 Hot Rods NI Points Championship, which is already sewn up by recently crowned British Champion Drew McKeown. The action is still set to be fast and furious with last week’s winner Adam Heatrick, Irish Champion Conor Hughes, World Champ Jordan Rochford, Wayne Woolsey and Ryan McCrory all set to do battle.

Also in action are the Lightning Rods where Ross Houston will be keen to continue his great form but will face stiff opposition from the likes of Mark Corry, James McKinney and Ian Hobson. Last but not least are the Classic Hot Rods, with Davy McCall, John Murray and Lester McCloy amongst those set to turn in some laps in their superb machinery.
The first green flag drops at 6.30pm at Tullyroan Oval.

An exciting evening of non-contact oval racing was served up to the fans at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday evening, June 15th. Portadown’s Adam Heatrick raced to a heat and final success to land the Tullyroan Challenge Cup for 2.0 Hot Rods, whilst the Stock Rods Tullyroan Challenge Cup fell the way of Glenavy’s Jonny Cardwell after a commanding drive. The prestigious Golden Helmet trophy for the Junior Productions was won by Antrim’s Leyton Hughes, whilst the other feature race wins fell to Ross Houston (Waringstown) in the Lightning Rods and Zack McCombe (Kilrea) in the Thunder Rods.

The opening 2.0 Hot Rods heat saw Dean McFarland set the opening pace before Adam Heatrick slipped past to take the win. Behind McFarland in second, returnee Stephen Emerson took third. Another recent returnee to the tracks, Michael Woods, took a great win in the second heat on his first appearance of the season. Scott Cochrane came through for second ahead of Conor Hughes and newly crowned British Champion Drew McKeown.
On aggregate points Heatrick had annexed pole position for the Tullyroan Challenge Cup Final, with McKeown alongside. Heatrick quickly assumed the lead, with McKeown slipping back on the outside line. That allowed Wayne Woolsey up to second ahead of Jordasn Rochford in third. There was no threat to Heatrick’s electric pace during the race, and that was how they finished as he took a morale boosting win.

The Tullyroan Challenge Cup was also up for grabs in the Stock Rods, with the field bolstered by some very welcome visitors from Tipperary Raceway. Reuben Kernohan led the majority of the way in the opening heat, but was outfoxed in heavy backmarking traffic late on which allowed British and National Champion Mark Crawford to take the victory over Jonny Cardwell. Heat two saw a straightforward win for Adam Sloan, as the Kells racer pulled effortlessly clear to win by some distance over Tipperary pair Eoghan Burke and Jack Maher.
Cardwell quickly assumed the lead in the Tullyroan Challenge Cup final, as a puncture in the midst of the leading cars for Sam McNeice saw him go out and hamper the progress of several others. That allowed Stevie McNiece up to second ahead of Crawford. Cardwell meanwhile was clear out front and he raced home to take his third Challenge Cup win in succession, and his fifth in total, after a great night for the Glenavy driver. McNiece, Crawford, Sloan and World Champion Dan Shannon were next home.

A grid of over twenty cars took the green flag for the opening Junior Production heat, with Lacey Bevan working her way to the front late on to take the win over a flying Leyton Hughes and Charlie Johnston. Heat two saw Dylan Fegan take the win on the road, but he was docked two places to third for jumping the start which gave the win to Jack Morrison ahead of Johnston.
Johnston and Bevan shared the front row for the A McKeown and Son Ltd sponsored Golden Helmet Final, which took a second attempt to get going after drama at the first time of asking. Hughes found a way past Johnston early on the edge clear out front once they did get underway, and he went on to take a superb victory over the impressive Fegan in second. Callum Doak inherited third spot after third across the line, Scotsman Charlie Hardie, was docked two places for contact. The top three and the heat winners all received nice bonus prizes courtesy of the sponsors.

The Lightning Rods were on great form all evening, with Tam Agnew claiming the heat one win after Ross Hosuton had been docked for contact on his way to the flag. Houston was in determined mood in heat two, racing side by side with Padraig Palmer for the last number of laps before snatching the win by a nose on the finish line. Palmer and Agnew filled the top three.
The final saw more of the same, with Palmer ahead and Houston chasing him down. Once again it came to a grandstand finish, with Houston again snatching the win by a hair’s breadth on the line from Palmer. Agnew, James McKinney and Conor Doherty completed the top five.

The Thunder Rods made another of their regular visits to Tullyroan Oval, and it was Zack McCombe who claimed the first heat win ahead of Jason Darragh and Andrew McLean. McCombe repeated the feat in the second heat, winning over Irish Champion James Goldie and Darragh.
An upgrade for the final was always going to make things much more difficult for McCombe from further back in the starting line up, but as Tom Archibald set the pace Zack got the head down and reeled him in. At half distance McCombe went ahead, racing clear to complete his hat-trick for the night in fine fashion. Archibald, Adam McKinney and Darragh completed the places.

Randalstown driver Sam McNeice won the coveted William Cooke Memorial Trophy for Stock Rods at Aghadowey Oval on Saturday night, June 8th. On an evening of top quality race action across all the formulas on show, Loughgall’s Jamie McCann won the other big race of the night, the Superstox King of Aghadowey.
Ahoghill’s Lewis Hazlett was the winner in the Campbell Commercials sponsored Ninja Karts, whilst other final winners were Strabane’s Adam McKinney in the Thunder Rods and Crumlin’s Matthew Milliken in the 1300 Stock Cars.

The random draw for the opening qualifying heat for the Stock Rods William Cooke Memorial Trophy placed World Champion Dan Shannon on pole position, and he raced home to win ahead of Sam McNeice and Joe Largey. The second heat saw top runners Sam Wilson and Mark Crawford clash, with Mark Foster making the most of it to slip through the chaos to win over Crawford and defending champion Jonny Cardwell.
Foster qualified on pole for the final, and he quickly settled into top spot. McNeice was tracking his every move, and found the smallest of gaps into the Brown Trout Bend to take up the running, with Cardwell chasing him through. Cardwell then grabbed the lead in a similar move, but he attracted a warning from Race Control for contact. Jonny went on to take the flag, but was demoted two places in the final result by the Steward which elevated a deserving McNeice to the winners enclosure. Foster was classified in second ahead of Cardwell.

The Superstox formula were contesting the King of Aghadowey title, with Lee Davison setting a blistering pace to win heat one, smashing the lap record which had stood since 2017 in the process. David McMenemy and Troy Crawford chased him home. Jordan Robinson was the one to make the break in the second heat, and he took the win with the placemen the same as in heat one.
The closed grid format saw an explosive start to the King of Aghadowey final. McMenemy and Crawford as front row starters lost out, with defending champ Robinson hitting the front and stretching clear. Disaster then struck for Jordan as his engine went sick, which saw the flying Jamie McCann burst through to the lead and a well deserved victory. The three NI Points Championship protagonists, Davison, Craig McConnell and Steven Haugh had a great scrap for the places, which fell the way of Haugh as he took second ahead of Davison and McConnell.

Another big grid of Ninja Karts came to the line for three races sponsored by Campbell Commercials. Jaxon Cairns impressed out front in the first heat, surviving two restarts only to pipped at the end by Jake Barnett who won over Cairns and Lewis Hazlett. Heat two saw Cairns again set the pace, but this time he made no mistake as he led all the way home to take his first ever win in some style too! Barnett and Hazlett filled out the top three with storming drives from the rear of the line up.
The final saw William Brown impress as he raced into the lead, as heat two winner Cairns unfortunately spun out of contention. The star drivers were again racing through from the rear, and this time who was Hazlett who took a decisive win ahead of Barnett and Ollie Williamson. All the young drivers received goodie bags and awards from sponsors Campbell Commercial, whilst the LJN Motorsport lower grade awards went to Williamson and Luke Grattan.

The all action 1300 Stock Car entertained as always, with returnee Davy Morrison taking the opening heat win ahead of Curtis Greer, after Curtis had got the best of a big scrap with Jonathan Brown and Matthew Milliken. Former ProStocks British Champion Morrison repeated the feat in heat two, again taking the win to earn himself an upgrade for the final. Davy Wilson took runner up spot in that one after a blistering last lap that saw the bumpers flying in.
The final was arguably the race of the night, with the destiny of the trophy never clear until the very end. Gary Freeburn, Greer, Jon McQuillan, Gareth Halliday and Milliken all had their noses ahead within the closing stages, as the bumpers were exchanged for fun! Milliken broke clear on the last lap and survived a last bend assault from McQuillan to land a well deserved win with Greer in third.


Newcomer Johua McCahon led the opening Thunder Rods heat before Adam McKinney raced through to win over a rapid looking James Goldie. McCahon again impressed in heat two, this time leading all the way to take his maiden win on the ovals. Liam Wilson and Josh Goligher got the better of a monster scrap in the pack to take second and third.
The final saw McCahon and McKinney have a fight for the top spot, before Strabane man McKinney broke clear and extended his lead out front. As Adam took the win, Daniel Rodgers came on very strong late on to take second after a great drive, with Zack McCombe and Jason Darragh next home.

Banger racing took centre stage at Tullyroan Oval on Sunday afternoon, June 2nd, with the much anticipated Shamwreck meeting. English ace Kieran Bowman took victory in the main Shamwreck 2024 title race for the Unlimited National Bangers, whilst Limavady’s John Goligher was victorious in the 1600 Rookie Bangers Irish Open Championship. Other feature race wins went to Waringstown’s Ross Houston in the Lightning Rods and Richhill’s Jake Barnett in the Ninja Karts.

A pleasing grid came under starter’s orders for the Shamwreck 2024 race for the Unlimited National Bangers, with Gordy McKee the first to show out front. He was spun out of contention, handing the lead to local man Dave Haugh before he too encountered trouble amongst the backmarkers. That opened the door for Norfolk’s Kieran Bowman to power through for the win over Haugh and the recovered McKee.
The chaos on track continued in the opening Allcomers race, with McKee this time taking the chequered flag ahead of Leonard Dunn. The second Allcomers race saw a late stoppage as the action continued all around the track, and it was Haugh who this time held on to win ahead of McKee.
The James ‘The Cat’ Smith Memorial Destruction Derby was a bruising affair as Stevo McGrath, Bowman and Deano McGrath set about destroying Seanie Bell’s Limousine. In the end it was Deano McGrath who took the honours to end an enjoyable day of crashing.

Gavin Gamble and Ryan Nixon enjoyed a great battle out front in the opening 1600 Rookie Bangers heat, before they lost out to a flying John Goligher. The former World Champion went on to win ahead of Stephen Boyd and Nixon. The second heat saw more great action to keep the big crowd entertained, with Josh Goligher taking the win ahead of his Dad John and Boyd.
The Irish Open Championship final saw an early stoppage as Hampshire ace Harry Botfield found himself upside down on the home straight. At the resumption Josh Goligher and Boyd disputed the lead, before tripping over each other amidst their battle. That put London’s George Baker ahead but he lost out to Josh Goligher as the excitement continued. Even a late restart and a huge effort from Baker couldn’t stop John, and he took the Irish Open win over Baker and Lucas Goligher.
The Allcomers race saw Lucas Goligher continue the Limavady family’s domination with victory over his Dad John and Botfield, whilst Marc Morrell was gifted the Destruction Derby win as the only car to come to the line.

Jake Morgan’s superb looking BMW headed the opening Lightning Rods heat, only to lose out late on to a great effort from Conor Doherty who took the win over a hard charging Mark Corry and Ross Houston. Morgan again led heat two, but this time the race developed into a scrap between Houston and Tam Agnew. Agnew took the flag only for the pair of them to be docked two places each by the Steward for contact on each other, which handed victory to Doherty once again.
Morgan was again the pacesetter in the final, but this time the big challenge came from Houston, who swooped past into the lead. Ross cruised to the chequered flag and the trophy despite Agnew closing near the end, with Corry in third.

The young aces in the Ninja Karts completed the programme, with a great finish to the opener as the top four raced to the line in a pack. Jake Barnett got the nod over long time leader Jaxon Cairns, with Lewis Hazlett in third. Heat two saw an even closer finish, with Jack Murphy just nipping past leader Ollie Williamson on the run to the flag to win by a hair’s breadth over Williamson and Hazlett.
The final saw Cairns out front once again as the race settled down, but despite his great showing all afternoon Jaxon had no answer to the star drivers who raced through from the rear of the field. Barnett came through in style to take his second win of the day ahead of Hazlett and the impressive Cairns, with Williamson and Murphy next home.

Killyman teenager Matthew Weir drove the race of his life to take victory in a dramatic Irish Open Championship for Junior Productions at Tullyroan Oval on Sunday afternoon. An action packed programme also saw Manchester’s Joelan Maynard take victory in the National Ministox Irish Masters, whilst the Moffett Family Trophy for Ninja Karts fell to Ahoghill’s Lewis Hazlett. Other final winners were Dungannon’s Ally Neill in the 2.0 Hot Rods and Portadown ace Lee Davison in the Superstox.
Junior Productions
The first qualifying heat for the Junior Productions Irish Open Championship saw the new British Champion Casey Cherry take the win over Harry Minish, before the reversed grid second heat went to defending champion Leyton Hughes ahead of Callum Doak and Scotland’s Lewis Dickson.
The final turned out to be one of the best races witnessed at Tullyroan Oval for some time, as pole man Matthew Weir and second placed starter Hughes raced the whole of the 20 lap distance side by side. Time and again Hughes was a fraction ahead on the line, but on the last lap when it mattered most it was Weir who took the title by the smallest of margins over Hughes. It really was a treat to watch and both drivers deserved great credit, as did third placed Callum Doak who raced on their tail for the whole duration of the race.
National Ministox
Three qualifying heats for the National Ministox Irish Masters saw the opener fall to Freddie Hunter-Johnson ahead of Caitlin Morrison, before Savannah Montgomery-Brown led most of heat two before the star drivers bundled past late on. Hunter-Johnson again got the nod, this time over Joelan Maynard for the win. Heat three was another excellent race as Finley Kew from Oxfordshire took a fine win over Hunter-Johnson.
The final showcased the formula at its very best, with Maynard losing out to Mason Whittle but tracking his every move for the remainder of the race. On the last bend Maynard went back in with a big hit, nudging Whittle wide to power through to the title win. Jamie Hanson and Whittle completed the top three, ahead of Hunter-Johnson and Morrison.

Scottish youngster Rory Wilson drove a great race to win heat one of the Ninja Karts from the star grade, ahead of Lewis Hazlett and Austin Grattan. Heat two saw Jake Barnett grab a last gasp win over Rowdy Grattan and Hazlett.
The Moffett Family Trophy Final saw another great race, with Hazlett sneaking inside Rowdy Grattan late on the take an amazing win, with Rowdy in second ahead of Barnett and Keegan Turtle.
Superstox
The biggest field of Superstox so far this year provided some great racing. Prior to heat one there was an emotional tribute to young Jack Morrow, the Superstox ace who was tragically killed in a road accident just a few days earlier. Conor Murphy went ahead in heat one before losing out to Dean Catherwood who went on to win ahead of Curtis Greer and Lee Davison. Heat two again saw Murphy ahead, and this time Conor held on to win ahead of a great places scrap between Davison, Catherwood and Jamie McCann.
The final had Jonathan Crawford out front for the first half of the race, before National and Irish Champion Lee Davison showed his flair to race through to take the win and the silverware in style over McCann, Craig McConnell and Steven Haugh.
2.0 Hot Rods
A great finish to the opening 2.0 Hot Rods heat saw Andy Best squeeze around the outside of Chris McCloy to take the win over Ally Neill, before in heat two Adam Heatrick relieved McCloy of the top spot to take the chequered flag over Neill and Best.
McCloy again set the pace in the final, but this time had no answer to the pace of Neill, as Ally powered past to take a very welcome feature race win ahead of Scott Cochrane, Best and Heatrick.
