An enjoyable midsummer’s evening of stock car racing at Aghadowey Oval On Saturday saw Garvagh’s Stephen Boyd victorious in the major event, the Rookie Bangers Ulster Championship. Ballymena’s James Goldie was crowned King of Aghadowey in the Thunder Rods for an astonishing fourth time in succession, whilst sixteen year old Glenavy lad Callum Magill celebrated his graduation to the senior ranks with a heat and final double in the competitive Stock Rods.
Other feature race winners were Loughgall’s Jamie McCann in the Superstox and Dungannon’s Ally Neill in the 2.0 Hot Rods.

A fine entry of Rookie Bangers thrilled the fans with some spectacular racing all evening. The opener was an all action affair, with John Goligher leading home his son Josh ahead of Matthew Nicholl in third. Heat two saw local points champ William McFaul come through for the win over Stephen Boyd.
The top finishers in the heats started from the front of the final, with McFaul making good his escape from the squabbling pack early on. A race stoppage in the latter stages saw him unfortunately eliminated from the race with damage, and that opened the door for Boyd to power through to take the Ulster Championship title. Josh Goligher led his father John home for second and third to complete the podium.

The Thunder Rods fielded an excellent 25 cars with the reverse grid system in operation for the heats. Cullybackey driver David Wilson found a way past early leader Darryl McAleese to take the win in heat one, with Adam Graham taking second. Heat two saw James Goldie get a tremendous start to hit the front and lead the rest home ahead of Ryan Nixon and Jordan Nicholl.
Goldie had claimed pole position for the all important King of Aghadowey final on aggregate points from the heats, and he wasted no time edging clear out front. There was a monster battle for second between Wilson, Daniel Rodgers and Chris Baird which you just couldn’t take your eyes off, and which ended with Wilson claiming the runner up slot ahead of Baird. There was no stopping Goldie though, as he sped home to claim the King of Aghadowey crown for the fourth time in a row in some style.

Just a week after his sixteenth birthday, Callum Magill celebrated his graduation from the Junior Productions to the Stock Rod ranks by winning his first ever race! He led home Thomas Morrison for the heat one win, with Jonny Gillespie in third. Gillespie then improved to take the second heat win over Victor McAfee and Magill.
In the feature race it was all about Magill once again, the young star powering clear early on into a big lead. Experienced campaigner McAfee was using all his skill to close the gap, but Callum held on to complete on very impressive heat and final double on his debut. McAfee, newly crowned European Champion Mark Crawford and Sam McNeice completed the top four.

Two more debutants in Andrew Murphy and Martin Crilly once again helped the Superstox over the twenty car barrier despite a number of absentees in the midst of the holiday period. Superstar Craig McConnell scythed through the field to take the heat one win after relegating long time leader Neil Hyndman with just two laps to go. Steven Haugh and Jamie McCann filled out the top three. Heat two was all about returnee Cyril Hawe, as he took a great win over David McMenemy and McCann.
McCann looked very sharp right from the off in the final, moving through the field at great speed to hit the front with four laps to go. He went on to claim a fine win over McConnell and Alan Haugh.

The 2.0 Hot Rods produced some close, competitive racing all meeting, with Broughshane’s David Kernohan taking the opening heat over Allen Cherry, before Kris Fitzpatrick just held off Cherry to take the chequered flag in heat two.

Despite an evening blighted by heavy showers, there was some fantastic stock car racing served up at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday night. Birches driver Steven Haugh won the main race of the evening, the Neil Davison Memorial Cup for Superstox, after some tremendous action. There was a superb finish to the 1300 Stock Cars Tullyroan Challenge Cup as Matthew Milliken took the trophy, whilst other feature race wins fell to young Lexi Crooks in the Junior Productions, Mark Corry in the Lightning Rods and Phillip Farrell in the Micro Bangers.

An impressive 28 Superstox arrived to do battle for the coveted Neil Davison Memorial Cup, including World Champion Nick Roots from Surrey and Scottish star Dean Johnston. A slippery heat one on a greasy track saw Kyle Beattie the man to watch as he took an impressive victory over Irish Champion Jordan Robinson and Johnston. Heat two saw Ed Davis the man to beat, as he held off Steven Haugh and Jamie McCann despite a late yellow flag.
The final was lined up in aggregate points order, with Beattie and Davis sharing the front row. The bumpers went flying in right from the off, with Beattie the early leader before he was punted wide by Haugh. Steven was showing great pace to edge clear, and despite closing towards the end Beattie just couldn’t get close enough to mount a challenge. Haugh thus took a deserving win to take the Neil Davison Memorial Cup, with Beattie, Craig McConnell and Roots filling out the top four. Haugh and first white/yellow grade driver home David McMenemy also received new race tyres courtesy of the Davison family.

Josh McKinstry took a clear win in the opening heat for the 1300 Stock Cars, utilising his drop to the yellow grade to take the flag over Matthew Milliken. Marcus Crossett led heat two right until the final bend, when Jonathan Brown timed his assault to perfection to move Crossett wide and steal through for a great win.
The closed grid final saw McKinstry stretch clear before he hit problems, which handed the lead to Milliken. Matthew had Ivan Elliott right on his tail though, obviously waiting to make his challenge for the lead late on. Ivan went in hard with the bumper on the final bend, but Matthew was able to ride the wall and just hang on by a whisker at the flag in a sensational finish.

The Lightning Rods field was bolstered by four visitors from Tipperary Raceway, with Mark McCambridge taking the opening heat win ahead of World Champion Nigel Jackson. Mark Corry then led the second heat before he ran wide, opening the door for McCambridge to nip through and take his second win of the night over Stuart Agnew.
The final saw Corry quickly demote early leaders Kielian Toland and Dermot Tynan to establish quite a lead out front, but as the laps dwindled down he had Jackson and Agnew filling his mirrors. They closed rapidly towards the end, but Mark had all under control and brought his immaculate BMW home for a great final win, with Jackson and Agnew next home.

An excellent 19-car entry of Junior Productions included a debut for Alfie Litter. Lexi Crooks quickly got to grips with her new car, as she coped admirably with the tricky conditions to take the first heat win over Aaron Ward and Leyton Hughes. Heat two was another contested on a very greasy track, and this time it was young Dylan Fegan who drove a fantastic race to take a very impressive first ever win over Matthew Weir.
The final was once again all about Crooks, as she went ahead early on and was able to withstand some big pressure late on with a number of yellow flags bringing the star drivers closer to the front. Lexi showed great skill to hang on for her second win of the night, with Lauren Berry also doing it for the girls with a fine second spot. Callum Doak and Sam Percy inherited third and fourth after a number of penalties were applied amongst the leading pack.

The Micro Bangers produced some exciting racing all evening, with Phillip Farrell taking the ‘Micro Madness’ title in their opener over Mike Flaherty and Tony Gillespie, with the antics of Stevo McGrath and Dan Dooner entertaining the crowds.
McGrath then inherited the Allcomers win after Farrell was penalised for a jump start, and then it was Stevo again who won an entertaining Destruction Derby as he and Flaherty went at it hard. Dooner took both the Entertainer of the Day and Best Wreck Awards.

After completing points calculations Jordan Rochford was declared 2.0 Hot Rods NI Points Champion for 2021/22.

Also contesting their King of Aghadowey title were the Superstox, and in heat one Neil Hyndman and Ross O’Shea had spells out front. Craig McConnell made his march from red grade to just miss out on a last lap lunge on Hyndman. Hyndman held a steady head throughout taking the win over McConnell and David McMenemy. Hyndman also led the majority of the race in heat two, before two yellow flag caution periods allowed Kyle Beattie time to slice through and take the chequered flag, with David Beattie and McConnell filling out the places.
The closed grid final was always going to produce fireworks, and that it certainly did. Right from the off McConnell and Kyle Beattie managed to break away from the rest of the pack with Lee Davison charging down fast, all eyes were on the lead scrap, as the laps kept ticking down, and it came down to a last lap showdown. David Beattie was playing a watching brief in fourth as Davison came in with a massive blow on Kyle Beattie and McConnell as their cars scattered around the pit bend, David Beattie carved his way through the carnage to romp home to a decisive and pleasing win, with Kyle Beattie and Jordan Robinson filling the places on the podium.

A huge field of 25 Thunder Rods took to the Aghadowey circuit for their opening heat, with Jason Darragh grabbing the win over Andrew McClean and David Reynolds on a very busy raceway. Heat Two was dramatic to say the least, as two caution periods were enforced as a result of Rick Purdy colliding with the wall on turn two and Gareth McCrory coming to a halt on the home straight. Christopher Baird took the honours in Heat Two ahead of David Wilson and Chris McNeill.
The final was another hard-fought race, which seen the red grade scrambling to make their way through the grid. McNeill managed to get ahead from the pack in front of Adam McKinney and Sam Watt.

McNeill therefore took the silverware over McKinney, Watt and Goligher.

The first Stock Rods heat saw a huge battle for the lead at the early stages, as Colin McNiece managed to make the long way round the outside of Samuel Wilson to take off into the distance. McNiece landed the victory with Thomas Morrison and Stevie McNiece in behind.

Teenager Adam Weir impressed greatly in the 2.0 Hot Rods, taking both heats from the novice grade with a great turn of speed. He led home Ryan McCrory in the opener before David Kernohan chased him under the chequers in heat two.

With a new kart at his disposal, Dungannon’s Ryan Abernethy Jnr took the opening heat win ahead of England’s Jack Jones and another Dungannon youngster, Ben Hawe. Abernethy then repeated the feat with another win in heat two, a race which will long be remembered for a huge triple rollover for Rowdy Grattan. England’s Murray Hall was runner up in this one with Hawe in third once again.
The final was a super race, with Abernethy again out front until he got outfoxed in the traffic late on by Jones. Jack came through to take a fine Tullyroan Challenge Cup win ahead of Abernethy, Noah Teggart, Hall and Charlie Weston.

Ryan Nixon got into the lead in the closing stages and it was that win that sealed the Irish Teams Championship for his ‘Bad Company B’ outfit which also included Reece Pollock and Gavin Gamble.
