Randalstown based racer Shane Murray returned to the 2.0 Hot Rod ranks at Aghadowey Oval last Saturday, and showed the regulars a clean pair of heels as he claimed victory in the opening round of the Hoosier Racing Tires Challenge Series. The action packed 15 race programme was polished off in just over three hours, with other feature race wins during the Faulkner Plumbing & Heating of Portstewart sponsored meeting falling to Willie Taggart (Stock Rods), Shea Duff (Junior Productions), Gary Chambers (Superstox) and Chrissy Dempsey (Thunder Rods).

Shane Murray returned to the 2.0 Hot Rods following a win in the National Hot Rods at Ballymena the previous evening. An early caution period in heat one, when a number of runners tripped over each other on the Brown Trout Bend, brought the star drivers into contention early on. It was an action packed race, with at one stage 15 cars circulating side by side in one pack, seemingly just moments from disaster! Wayne Woolsey held his nerve to secure a fine win, smashing the lap record for the circuit in the process. Murray and Joel Richardson followed the Portadown man home. In the second heat Dungannon's Jason Devlin quickly settled into the lead, and he held on all the way home to secure the victory. Murray inherited second position when Richardson was docked to fourth behind Stuart Cochrane for contact.
Aggregate points put Murray and Devlin on row one for the Hoosier Racing Tire Challenge Series Round 1 Final, with Shane the first to show in the lead. Very quickly Richardson and Woolsey were on Murray's case, with both looking outside the #70 car but to no avail. Murray remained resistant to their advances, until a suspension breakage on the Richardson car forced him back down the field. As Murray secured a deserved win after a masterclass in defensive driving, Woolsey claimed the runner up slot ahead of Stephen Emerson. Murray also received a new Hoosier race tyre from the series sponsors for his efforts.

A pleasing field of 18 Stock Rods included travelling Scottish racer Craig Tosh on his Aghadowey debut. Robert McIlroy and Jonny Gillespie shared the early lead, before a caution period when Ben McCully and Shane McMillan got involved in shenanigans on the Pit Bend. Gillespie relinquished the lead as he retired, as Bobbie Johnston put a move on Lee Best to take up the running. The Glenarm driver had all in hand to take an impressive win ahead of Ballymena's former World Champion Chris Gordon and Coleraine's Willie Taggart. Best set the pace for the first dozen laps of the second heat from the yellow grade, before his good friend Gordon squeezed past to go one better than the opener by taking victory. Micky McFall carded a creditable runner up place, ahead of Gary Butler, whilst Shane McMillan continued his interesting evening by copping a disqualification mid-race having received three black cross warnings at that stage for contact.
McIlroy was first to show in the Faulkner Plumbing & Heating sponsored final, but he lost out to a fast moving Taggart on the fifth lap. It was Willie's first appearance on track of the season, and despite the advances of Gordon nearing the end he held on for a morale boosting victory. Gordon and Johnston filled the top three, with McMillan finally getting to the flag in this one in a creditable fourth.

With a number of regulars missing for one reason or another, it was slightly lower than usual turnout of Superstox that contested the meeting, with Sean Mark leading them off in heat one before spinning out of contention. There was plenty of bumperwork in evidence throughout the field, as Conor Murphy raced ahead of the pack. The brand new car of Newry man Gary Chambers was catching the eye as he stole through to second at the flag behind a delighted Murphy, with Irish Champion Denver Grattan in third. Lee Davison took a great win in the second heat, charging through from the red grade to demote Stephen Stewart with just four laps to run.
There was an early caution period in the feature race final when Geoffrey Moffett found himself planted into the wall on turn three. That brought the star drivers right into contention, with Davison, Grattan and Chambers embarking on a very entertaining dice for the lead. They chopped and changed the lead on numerous occasions with the bumpers put to good use, with Chambers getting the nod when it mattered most to land the victory on his new mount's maiden voyage. Grattan finished second, with Stewart grabbing third at the expense of Davison who slowed late on with a puncture.

It was the opening round of the 1ke Engineering Young Guns Series for the Junior Productions, with former Ninja Karts British Champion Sam McNeice the leader of the opening heat for much of the distance. Davy Gurney challenged him on the final lap, with both running wide and gifting the win to Graham Meek. Second on the road Drew McKeown was disqualified for spinning Jack Hazlett late on, which elevated Gurney and Shea Duff to the top three. Hazlett bounced back in heat two by leading from start to finish, keeping his cool despite a mid race caution when Adam McFall and Gareth Halliday clashed on turn one. McKeown and Duff completed the top three.
The closed grid start to the final of the opening 1ke Engineering Young Guns Series round saw Meek impressively pull clear of the pack, but he soon had Duff closing on him. Shea made the pressure tell, finding a gap down the inside into turn one to take up the lead and cruise home to the victory. Meek was able to hold off McKeown over the final laps to claim a great second, with Gurney and Halliday rounding out the top five. Duff collected the silverware from the meeting sponsors and a £50 voucher for the Racemart track shop from the series backers.

The budget Thunder Rods completed the race card, with all three victories going to novice grade drivers. Roger Glass took the opener ahead of Chrissy Dempsey and Lee Booth, with a good run from the star grade netting Curtis Greer fourth. Dempsey broke clear and landed the victory in heat two, whilst a great battle for second was resolved in Greer's favour ahead of impressive runs for Ryan Campbell and John Goligher.
Dempsey made no mistake in the final, charging ahead early on to win handsomely over Goligher and Norman Purdy, the latter having completed some sterling pit work to get back on track after a nasty accident during practice. Photos with thanks to John Wolsey @ Racemart

For the second meeting in succession at Aghadowey Oval there was a Scottish winner in the programme's feature event, as young Charlie Hardie landed the Ninja Karts King of Aghadowey trophy after a fantastic lead battle with Broughshane's Jay Clyde. During the rest of the Hollytree Rare Breeds Farm sponsored meeting, there were also heat and final doubles for Jordan Rochford (Lightning Rods), Stephen McCready (ProStocks), Adam McFall (Junior Productions) and Curtis Greer (Thunder Rods).

The Ninja Karts lined up in graded order for their heats, with the points scored during the two qualifiers forming the grid for the King of Aghadowey final. Bobby Henderson set the initial pace in the opening heat, and the impressive white grader held sway at the front for much of the race distance. He couldn't hold back Charlie Hardie though, as the young Scot swooped by to take the victory ahead of Henderson and Megan Murray. If the opener was good, then the second heat was even better as Daniel Stewart took the early lead ahead of Henderson. Many eyes were on a ferocious battle between Hardie and top local runner Jay Clyde as they blasted through the field from their rear of the grid starts. They swapped places a number of times and arrived amongst the leaders as the finish approached. With backmarkers involved too it was Megan Murray who claimed her first ever win in the formula, just a few weeks before she is forced to retire having reached the upper age limit. Stewart, Hardie and Lily Gallagher rounded out the top four.
Murray, Hardie and Henderson shared the front row for the final, and following an early stoppage for a crash it was all about just two drivers - Hardie and Clyde. In a tremendous battle the duo were barely separated for the whole distance, and a gaggle of backmarkers saw Hardie go outside and Clyde swoop inside to take the lead. It looked as though the local lad would hold on for the win, but Hardie out-fumbled him in more backmarkers within sight of the flag to take a sensational King of Aghadowey victory by the narrowest of margins. Callum Magill took third spot whilst long distance traveller Cole McGann from Cork was awarded the TwoZeroSix Personal Training Most Improved Driver award. The youngsters produced some thrilling racing throughout the evening, with each and every one of them deserving credit.

It was the opening round of the M.O. Auto Repairs Challenge Series for Lightning Rods, and they started with a controversial opening heat. Jordan Rochford came from the front row of the star grade to take the win, but second on the road Aaron Stewart was initially docked for contact during the race which later became a load up from the meeting for venting his anger at the decision with some horrendous antics on track - all whilst the Ninja Karts were lining up for the next race. That elevated World Champion Scott Cochrane to second ahead of Alastair Stewart. Series sponsor Mark Overend again set the pace in heat two, before losing out to stable mate Mark Corry. Despite great pressure from behind and a late race caution period, Corry held on for a deserved win over Alastair Stewart and Mark McCambridge.
The final saw Rochford quickly move clear at the front, with the Portadown ace in command from flag to flag. Alastair Stewart kept him honest all the way for a very creditable second, with Gary Beggs getting the best of a big fight for third place. Rochford received a new Yokohama tyre courtesy of the series sponsors for his win.

With the World Cup at the venue later in the year, it was no surprise to see a big field of almost 25 ProStocks in action in the opening round of the McElmeel Mobility Services Supreme Series. Amongst those were former World Cup Champion Ryan Abernethy, with fellow star man Raymond Harper also making a comeback and Thunder Rods Irish Champion Del McLaughlin making the switch across. There was action galore all around the raceway right from the off, but novice Jordan McCann showed some fine talent to pull clear for a very impressive win ahead of Davy Wright and Stephen McCready. McCann again led heat two for much of the way, before McCready slipped by to take up the running. McCann gallantly fought back but couldn't unseat the star man from the lead, as the Antrim ace took a great win over McCann and Stephen Boyd.
Aggregate points from the heats formed the grid for the final, with McCann the early leader as they were all brought up short when Fionn Donnelly was left stranded on the back straight. McCann had no answer to McCready on the restart, as 'Speedy' went by and on to the victory. Wright and Boyd filled the podium places, with McCann marking himself down as one to watch this season with fourth spot. McCready also received a new race tyre courtesy of the series sponsors, McElmeel Mobility Services.

The Junior Productions for the 10-16 year olds are turning out to be a very competitive formula in 2016, with a number of rapid graduates from the Ninja Karts joining the established regulars. The former Ninja Karters shared the spoils during the evening, with Ballymena's Adam McFall taking the opening heat win over Graham Meek and Irish Champion Drew McKeown. Reigning British Ninja Karts Champion Sam McNeice held off some great pressure from behind to land his first Junior win in heat two, leading home McKeown and Meek this time.
McFall was able to make an early escape from the pack to lead the final, with McNeice initially second ahead of Adam Weir. Weir made the runner up spot his, but was unable to close the gap to McFall who took the flag for his second win of the day and to book a rise to the yellow grade for the next meeting. McKeown, Shea Duff and David Gurney all had an untidy coming together, leaving Weir to take second ahead of Meek.

Roger Glass held the lead for much of the opening heat in the Thunder Rods, but Curtis Greer nipped past in the closing stages to take the win over Lee McCloy and Glass. Roger again set the pace in heat two, this time holding on until just two laps from the end when John Goligher edged ahead to take his first ever race victory. Greer managed to snatch second ahead of McCloy at the line.
The star graders again failed to make an impact in the final, with Greer this time powering past Glass on lap seven to take up the running. There was a caution period when Peter Henderson and Lee Booth had a nasty coming together on the entrance to the back straight, but Greer didn't let that affect him as he powered to the Hollytree Rare Breeds Farm sponsored silverware. McCloy and Samuel Montgomery filled out the top three.
Many thanks to our meeting sponsors, Hollytree Rare Breed Farm
