A frantic Friday night of race action at Aghadowey Oval saw four non-contact formulas produce some excellent racing. Broughshane’s Jaimie McCurdy was on top form in the National Hot Rods as he steered his Ginetta to a polished heat and final double, whilst Portadown’s Adam Hylands did likewise in the 2.0 Hot Rods to claim the 2018 King of Aghadowey title. The other feature race winners at the meeting, sponsored by McKnight Motors of Coagh, were Philip Wilson in the Stock Rods and Brian Edgar in the Thunder Rods.

It was the thirteenth and penultimate round of the Hankook Performance Tyres World Series NI for the National Hot Rods, and the opening heat saw Kenny McCann set the pace until Jaimie McCurdy burst through from the blue grade to take up the running on lap nine. Derek Martin was giving chase but then McCurdy’s advantage disappeared when the yellow flags came out for a stranded Keith Martin on the pits bend. Despite having D Martin on his tail at the restart, McCurdy held on for the win over D Martin and Ulster Champion Glenn Bell. Heat two was all about Carl Sloan, as the Kells ace stormed home to a fine win over D Martin and McCurdy.
McCurdy and D Martin shared the front row for the final, with Jaimie hitting the front early on ahead of Bell and Martin. McCurdy was under the cosh for most of the distance, but showed great maturity to hold off the onslaught from behind all the way home to the flag and the silverware. Bell, Martin, Shane Murray and Adam Hylands filled out the places.

There was some phenomenal action amongst the pack in the opening heat for the 2.0 Hot Rods, whilst out front Aaron Beattie held off Adam Hylands for the lead. Hylands took up the running as Beattie faltered, Adam racing home to the win over Mark Madill and Sean Dynes. Heat two saw local driver Thomas Morrison out front early on before Allen Cherry found a way past to take the lead, and ultimately the win, over Adam Best and Hylands.
The King of Aghadowey final saw Hylands on pole position and he quickly settled into the lead. There was a great battle developing for second between Best, Stephen Emerson and Cherry. The trio swapped places time and again, but all the time Hylands was edging clear to the win with Cherry and Emerson taking second and third over the line. Unfortunately Emerson failed post race checks due to a tyre infringement, which saw him excluded and Best elevated onto the podium.

Returnee Samuel Murphy set the pace in the opening Stock Rods heat from another very healthy entry, with Philip Wilson and Chris Hamill chasing hard. Hamill burst through to take the win on the road, but was demoted for contact on Wilson on his way past. That handed the win to Ed Davis ahead of Gary Butler and the demoted Hamill. Hamill made no mistake in heat two, quickly demoting early pacesetter Johnny McCloy to race clear to the victory over Samuel Montgomery and Wilson.
Montgomery led the early stages of the final before Wilson and Hamill found a way past to the front. The leader was under huge pressure, as further behind there was a fantastic places scrap amongst the pack. Wilson kept all under control up front, taking a deserved final win after losing out so cruelly at the last meeting. Hamill, World Champion Marc Morrell and Irish Open Champion Stevie McNiece filled out the top places. Winner Wilson also received a new Yokohama tyre courtesy of Pets2go2.co.uk.

DMC Race Promotions debutant Brian Edgar led the opening Thunder Rods heat for much of the distance ahead of John Lamont, before both lost out to a fast charging Ryan Campbell. Campbell has had a great start to 2018 and took yet another race win over Davy Gurney and Edgar. Lamont stamped his authority all over heat two, leading from flag to flag for a tremendous win despite pressure late on from behind. David Baird and Campbell filled the places.
The final saw Edgar hit the front from the off ahead of Lamont. The star men closed in and got amongst the leaders in the closing stages, but Edgar held his nerve in fine style for a great debut feature race win. Campbell and Andrew McLean completed the podium finishers.

Another outstanding night of short oval racing at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday evening saw some fantastic battles on track, with Ahoghill's Shane Murray the big winner as he scooped the spoils in the National Hot Rods final with a superb outside pass in the closing stages. All five formulas at the A McKeown & Son Fruit and Veg sponsored meeting entertained during the evening with big numbers on track, with the other feature races falling to Bleary's Drew McKeown in the Junior Productions Golden Helmet, Portadown's Ryan McClure (2.0 Hot Rods), Draperstown's Aaron Brunton (Lightning Rods) and Cavan's Christy Bradley in the Rookie Bangers.

The National Hot Rods were contesting Round 12 of the Hankook Performance Tyres World Series NI with Andrew Stewart showing great pace in the opening heat. He quickly demoted early leader Kenny McCann and raced home to a clear victory. Keith Martin got the better of a great scrap to take second on the line ahead of Simon Kennedy and Derek Martin. McCann again set the early pace in heat two, before he lost out to Kennedy and then a fast charging Adam Maxwell. Maxwell hit the front and just held off the advances of D Martin to take the win, with Adam Heatrick in third.

The final paired D Martin and Maxwell on the front row, with Adam getting the jump at the green flag to take the lead. D Martin quickly fought back, getting under the leader down the home straight. Maxwell fought hard to close the door, but Martin was through and into the lead. Derek continued to pull clear out front, before disaster cruelly struck on lap 19 when he slowed with what looked like broken suspension. That handed the lead to A Heatrick who was now being tracked by Maxwell and Shane Murray's Ginetta. Maxwell looked outside but fell back, before Murray hit the outside with just five laps to go. Shane really had the bit between his teeth and hauled himself right around the long way to take a sensational victory over A Heatrick and Jaimie McCurdy.

For the 2018 Golden Helmet the local Junior Production aces were joined by welcome Scottish visitor Kris Watson for his track debut. Matthew Nicholl demoted early leader Aaron Ward to take the lead and the flag in heat one, but he was unfortunately disqualified for a technical infringement in post race scrutineering. That handed the win to Adam Weir over defending champion Drew McKeown and Sam McNeice. There was very little to choose between a number of drivers, and in heat two Nicholl made amends for his earlier exclusion by taking the win which he kept this time. Ward excelled in second ahead of Graham Meek and Adam McFall.

The points were very close to determine the grid for the Golden Helmet final, with McKeown and Meek sharing the front row ahead of McFall and Weir as just four points covered the top three. McKeown led them off with Meek making an outstanding effort over the opening laps to hang in there on the difficult outside line. It was a superb race, and McKeown was able to break free and edge into a lead that he kept all the way home to defend his title, whilst a huge battle between Meek, McFall and Nicholl went all the way down to the wire. Nicholl came home second but was docked two places for contact on McFall during the race, which elevated Meek and McNeice to the podium at the end of a great evening's sport from the young drivers.


Amongst the seventeen 2.0 Hot Rods on track was a welcome visit from Tipperary's Ken Moloney, with a recent regrading shuffling the pack somewhat. Thomas Morrison and Davy Potter set the pace early in heat one, before they were all brought up short when Noel Tierney found the back straight wall. At the resumption Allen Cherry quickly worked his way through to the front to take the win over Mark Madill and Ryan McClure. The yellow graders weren't troubled in heat two, as Potter rolled back the years to take the win over Morrison, as Aaron Beattie held off allcomers to take third ahead of McClure and Cherry.

Morrison set the pace early doors in the final, but McClure was the one to watch this time. Ryan quickly scythed through to the front and pulled clear to land a morale boosting victory over Madill, Cherry and Morrison as the star graders again failed to make an impact.

Once again the great year for Lightning Rods continued with numbers well into the twenties. This was another formula that had been given a shake up by the recent regrading and it made it hard work for the star graders all evening. Former Irish Champion Richard Stewart made the most of his drop to the blue grade with a clear heat one victory over Dylan McCann and former World Champ Scott Cochrane. The action was frenetic all evening on a packed raceway with Dermot Tynan setting the heat two pace, before another former Irish Champion Gordy McKee took his first victory since returning to the formula this term. Cochrane impressed again in second with Jonny McMillan in third.

Tynan was the pacesetter again in the feature final, sponsored by A McKeown & Son. Following two non-finishes in the heats it soon became apparent that Aaron Brunton would be a major player in this one as he rocketed out of the yellow grade. Aaron hit the front on lap 14 and was never headed all the way home to a very creditable win indeed. McMillan, Cochrane and Mark Corry were next up with Ricky Shaw the best of the star graders in fifth.

Twenty three Rookie Bangers completed the programme in style, with some excellent action on track for the fans to enjoy. Paul O'Connor was a long time leader in heat one, but he was sensationally spun by a backmarker on the exit of the final bend! That handed the win to Sammy Fisher ahead of a recovered O'Connor and Micheal Smith. Heat two saw the action continue as National Bangers star Stevo McGrath pulled clear before spinning out of contention. That opened the door for former Shamwreck winner Mike Flaherty to power through to take the win over Fisher and Stephen Murray.

Murray led the final after passing Smith as cars went in all directions on the busy raceway. A mid race stoppage when Eugene Cadden got into trouble on the back straight also put paid to Murray's chances as his Honda boiled up ruling him out of the restart. As the greens went down Christy Bradley hit the front and took the win over Flaherty and Dylan Connolly after another successful night for the Rookie Bangers.

A big Bank Holiday crowd were treated to some excellent racing at Aghadowey Oval on Monday afternoon, culminating in a fantastic Caravan Destruction Derby which fell the way of William McFaul. Enniskillen’s Stevie McNiece took a tense Stock Rods final win at the Getty Precision Engineering sponsored meeting, whilst Lee Davison took a heat and final double in the Superstox. Glenavy’s Dan Shannon was another double winner in the ProStocks, whilst James Goldie also took a heat and feature race brace of wins in the Thunder Rods.
Stock Rods
Philip Wilson celebrated his recent return to racing with a fantastic drive in the opening Stock Rods heat, leading from flag to flag for a great win having just held off Jonny Gillespie and Curtis Greer. The star men were struggling to make an impact, as Gillespie powered through to land the victory in heat two over Wilson and Mick Rodgers after a number of penalties were handed down from Race Control.
The final for the opening round of the PC Paints & Components Challenge Series saw Wilson and Gillespie share the front row with Rodgers and Greer tight behind, and the fans were treated to a tense and drama-filled affair that had the whole stadium enthralled for its duration. Wilson took up the running with Gillespie right on his bumper as the majority of the top runners ran together as one. Greer got under Gillespie to go second but just couldn’t unseat a stubborn Wilson despite all his efforts. There was heartbreak for Wilson ahead though, as contact from down the pack came right through the field and saw him dumped into the wall on the exit of turn four. The yellow caution came out and a number of the top runners were gone, and unbelievably former World Champion Stevie McNiece found himself in the top spot for the restart. Stevie reeled off the final laps to take the win and a very generous prize of a socket set from the series sponsor Rodney Wallace. There were also prizes for second and third placed Shane McMillan and Marc Morrell at the end of a super race that you just couldn’t take your eye off for a second.
Superstox
Fresh from a fourth place finish in the British Championship at Ipswich just 48 hours previous, Portadown’s Lee Davison took the honours in the opening Superstox heat at the opposite end of the British Isles. Gareth Robinson and David Beattie had contested the lead before a caution period wiped out their early advantage. As Davison took the flag Chris McArdle and Kyle Beattie came through for second and third. Robinson again led heat two before losing out to a fast moving Sean Mark who had missed the opening heat with mechanical gremlins. Sean was able to hold off a fast charging Davison over the final laps to record a great win, with Aaron McNeilly taking third spot.
David Beattie held the lead for the opening laps of the final, initially ahead of Robinson before McArdle took over in second. Davison was on a huge charge once again, and he stormed through to take a fine win over Kyle Beattie and McArdle. The afternoon finished with a Dash For Cash which saw all sorts of drama early on. Star grader Stephen Stewart blasted through the chaos to take the win ahead of Davison.

Welcome Scottish star Paul Barron joined the ProStocks for the afternoon, as novice graders David Browne and Sam Stewart contested the lead in the opening heat. Returnee Dylan Booth quickly moved onto terms with them, slicing past to the lead to hold off Joe Largey and Dan Shannon at the flag. Shannon made no mistake in heat two, taking the win over Steven Haugh and William McFaul at the end of an action packed race indeed.
Stewart, Matthew McKinstry and Booth had a great battle up front in the final, but Shannon was on a mission and swooped past to the win over McKinstry and Largey.
Thunder Rods
The opening Thunder Rods heat of the day provided a great win for Ballymena racer James Goldie, as he led home Ryan Campbell and Lee McCloy at the flag. The second heat saw a well deserved victory for David Baird in his superbly turned out Vauxhall, as he just held off Campbell and Goldie at the flag.
David King led the early laps of the feature final before losing out to Goldie who scythed through from the back of the blue grade. James was on top form as he took the flag and the silverware, with Campbell and Baird inheriting second and third after McCloy and Karl Smyth were docked for contact.
Caravan Destruction Derby
A fantastic fourteen caravans came to grid for the Bank Holiday Destruction Derby, including defending champion Dessie Dallas, National Bangers World Champion Steven Bolton and former National Hot Rod World Champion Adam Maxwell. There was carnage right from the off, with Matthew McKinstry catching the eye as he got well and truly stuck in, including going right through a caravan on the home straight! William McFaul was the last man standing to take the honours after a terrific event.
