It is with regret that DMC Race Promotions announce that the ProStocks formula will not be continuing with us in 2020. For ten years the formula was one of the success stories on our circuits with some huge turnouts, but recently numbers have dwindled to a level that we can no longer sustain going forward. A number of the drivers currently racing have also indicated that they will be competing in other formulas next season, so we have unfortunately decided not to offer dates to the class in 2020.

The ProStocks have produced some fantastic racing, and a number of major champions, since being introduced back in 2009, and we hope that the current drivers can use their machinery in the Rookie Bangers formula with a little modification, or indeed sell them to Scotland where the formula will continue.

The ProStocks have now been removed from our Tullyroan Oval fixture on December 29th, and will be replaced by the 2.0 Hot Rods.

DMC Race Promotions would like to thank all the drivers who have competed in the formula over the last decade, contributing to some very memorable racing.

At the end of another successful season on the DMC Race Promotions circuits, we have rounded up a number of points charts.

In the Cirrus Plastics DMC Race Promotions Championship for National Hot Rods which runs over the calendar year, Glenn Bell ran out victorious ahead of Shane Murray and Adam Hylands. Glenn received his magnificent rrophy from Alvin Doak of Cirrus Plastics at Aghadowey Oval on Friday night, and also receives 4 new Hoosier slick tyres.

The National Bangers NI Accident Services Entertainers League continues on until the Big Vans at Christmas time, and Leaonard Dunn currently tops the standings ahead of Tony Gillespie and Stevo McGrath. Saturday night past was the first round of the 2019/20 DMC Race Promotions Championship which runs until the 2020 Unlimited World Final. Newly crowned 2L Irish Champion William McFaul leads the way early on ahead of Rodney Herron and Karl Smyth.

For a number of our other classes, the so called 'off season' becomes very important as that is when valuable World Championship qualifying points can be banked. At this stage the various leaders are: Derek McMillan (Stock Rods), Lee Davison (Superstox), Adam Best (2.0 Hot Rods), Nigel Jackson (Lightning Rods) and Robbie wright (1300 Stock Cars).

The Tullyroan Oval Gala Night produced fireworks on and off track in front of a large crowd of race fans on Saturday evening. The 2L National Bangers Irish Championship fell the way of Kilrea’s William McFaul after a cracking race whilst Antrim’s Leyton Hughes won the Ninja Karts Irish Championship and Portadown’s Sam Stewart took the honours in a thrilling ProStocks Irish Championship showdown. The NIOvalTV Superstox Series came to a thrilling climax as Portadown racer Jordan Robinson took the honours in the ShootOut final, whilst the other winner at the Hollytree Rare Breed Farms sponsored meeting was Aghadowey’s Richard Stewart in the Lightning Rods.

An excellent field of 2L National Bangers lined up to contest their Irish Championship, with defending champion Leonard Dunn the first to show before Adam Maxwell took over out front. Maxwell pulled clear only for Karl Smyth to take him out in spectacular fashion on opposite in the turning zone on the Annaghmore Bend. That handed the lead to William McFaul, and he survived a late attack to hang on for the victory. Dunn and Paul Compelli completed the top three.
The Allcomers was a very lively affair indeed, with big hits and all sorts of action all around the track. Dunn was on the warpath stopping anything he came across, and it was Dublin’s Stevo McGrath who took the victory over Rodney Herron and Smyth.

The Stephen Bannon Memorial Destruction Derby rounded off the evening, and once again it was an entertaining affair. It boiled down to McFaul, Phillip Farrell and Rodney Herron, with McFaul getting the win after stopping the other duo.

The Irish Championship is the biggest event on the domestic calendar for the young aces in the Ninja Karts, with Leyton Hughes getting the jump at the green flag to head Ryan Berry and fellow front row starter Max Hobson early on. Hobson then had a huge crash out onto the back straight, bringing out the caution flags. At the restart Hughes again pulled clear, with Odhran Monaghan now in second and trying with all his might to reduce the gap. Hughes had all in control though, and Leyton came home to land the biggest win of his short career in some style. Monaghan and Andrew Hawe completed the podium.

For good measure Hughes then took the opening support heat from the rear of the grid over Hawe and Berry, before the second heat fell to Monaghan after a great drive to lead home Berry and Hughes.

The ProStocks may be down in numbers in 2019, but they never fail to produce the goods when titles are up for grabs. The Irish Championship race was an absolute thriller, with plenty of contact and lead changes throughout. Steven Haugh led early on before Dan Shannon attacked for the lead, with blows exchanged between all the front runners which also included Joe Largey, William McFaul and Sam Stewart. Lap after lap the advantage swung from one to the other, with some telling blows leaving a number of cars carrying damage. It was Stewart who emerged from the entertainment to take a fantastic victory, with David McKinnon and McFaul picking up the podium places.
The Reversed grid Irish Revenge race fell to Largey after Stewart had led most of the distance.

It was Round 3 of the popular Superstox NIOvalTV Series, which was then to be followed by the ShootOut final with a number of race tyres up for grabs courtesy of the resident DVD team at DMC Race Promotions. David Beattie revelled in the greasy condition to take the heat one win over Ed Davis and Keith McAreavey, before David repeated the feat in heat two to take the flag ahead of British Champion Lee Davison and Darren Bevan.
An upgrade for the final didn’t deter Beattie at all, as he again rushed to the front and took the honours. Bevan kept his honest all the way home, with Darren also picking up the top white/yellow grade driver award. Star men Beattie and Davison were next home.
The top six on aggregate points from across the series then gridded for the six car, six lap, Series ShootOut final, although Bevan was out before it started with mechanical issues. It was an action packed and entertaining event indeed, with leader Davison unable to shake off Jordan Robinson and Ed Davis. Twice Lee was unceremoniously dumped in the wall, as Robinson powered through to take a great victory. Davison came across the line second but suffered a technical disqualification courtesy of a trailing wheel guard, handing the runner up spot to Davis ahead of Keith McAreavey.

In his favoured slippery conditions, World & Irish Champion Nigel Jackson accounted for the wins in both Lightning Rods heats. In the opener he led home James McKinney and Ally Neill, before Aaron Brunton and Neill filled the places in heat two.
The final saw Richard Stewart get a great break early on, and he soon demoted Brunton from the lead. Jackson worked his way through to second, but it was Stewart who rounded off the season with a fine win. Jackson and Neill completed the podium places.

Fantastic racing on track superbly complimented the terrific fireworks display at the Aghadowey Oval Gala Night on Friday evening, with Templepatrick’s Ben McKee scoring a faultless hat-trick of victories in Round 6 of the Simpson Race Exhausts World Series NI for National Hot Rods. The final win also netted Ben the coveted Richard Turtle Memorial Trophy. The other big winner of the meeting, kindly sponsored by McCurdy Fuels, was Ballymena’s James Goldie who collected the Thunder Rods Irish Championship title. Ballymena’s Mark Crawford was crowned King of Aghadowey in the Junior Productions, whilst Glenarm’s Bobbie Johnston took victory in the Stock Rods.

Another pleasing entry of National Hot Rods contested Round 6 of Simpson Race Exhausts World Series NI, with Ben McKee putting his Mercedes SLK to good use in the opener to take a clear win over Ian McReynolds and Simon Kennedy. Ben then repeated the feat in heat two, racing home from the yellow grade to take his second victory of the evening, this time over Ian McReynolds and Kennedy.
The increased distance in the final would have given the star men more hope of getting on terms with McKee, with Ben immediately setting the pace out front once again. Derek Martin was the one to watch, breaking free of the star graders and making significant progress towards the front. He found McReynolds in second place a tough nut to crack though, and once he had got past Ian, McKee was just too far down the road. Ben reeled off the remaining laps to complete his hat-trick and collect the superb Richard Turtle Memorial Trophy. Martin was great value in second ahead of McReynolds, Adam Hylands and John Christie. During the eveing Glenn bell was also presented with the 2019 Cirrus Plastics DMC Race Promotions Points Championship trophy.

James Goldie and Jason Darragh shared the front row for the Thunder Rods Irish Championship, leading off a packed 20-car grid for the big showdown. David Wilson from row two attacked the leader Goldie early on, but James soaked up the pressure and thwarted Wilson’s attack. Goldie then edged clear to collect the Irish Championship title, with defending champion Andrew McLean coming through for second at the end ahead of Darragh in third.
The reverse grid Irish Revenge race saw a polished victory for long distance traveller Paul Whelan from Tipperary, as he took the flag ahead of Norman Purdy and David Gurney.

The young local stars in the Junior Productions were joined by Scottish visitor Koddi Wright for the evening, with the first heat falling to Mark Crawford over Sam McNeice and Matthew Nicholl. The reversed grid second heat saw Irish Champion Graham Meek take the win over Nicholl and Sam Percy.
The King of Aghadowey final saw Crawford on pole position and he quickly assumed the lead over Nicholl and McNeice. A late race caution when Rhianna Murray spun on the Brown Trout Corner closed the field together, but Crawford once again pulled clear to win in style from McNeice and Nicholl.

Robert McIlroy took a clear win in the opening Stock Rods heat, racing clear from the yellow grade to lead home Rick Purdy and Mark Kilpatrick. Novice Kilpatrick was having his best run to date, and he took the win in the second heat, his first ever victory, having withstood the pressure of a late restart. Ryan Murphy and Purdy filled the places.
The final saw Kilpatrick and Purdy on the front row, but it was Bobbie Johnston who stormed ahead early on. The former British Champion edged clear only to see his lead wiped out with a caution period when Jonny Cardwell found himself in bother on the back straight. Johnston again pulled ahead on the restart, completing the distance to take the win. A number of penalties were handed out in the pack, with Micky McFall and Gary Butler filling the podium places after a Stewards Enquiry, Butler having successfully appealed a disqualification for the event stopping incident mid-race.
Many thanks to our meeting sponsors, Wilson McCurdy Haulage and McCurdy Fuels
