As the heat wave continued, the action on track was as hot as the temperature off it at Aghadowey Oval on Saturday evening! Local ace Stephen Boyd scooped the Micro Bangers King of Aghadowey title after an action packed event, whilst Portadown’s Robbie Wright continued his good form in the 1300 Stock Cars as he too was crowned King of Aghadowey. Other winners during the TrophiesNI.com sponsored event were Steven Haugh (ProStocks), Gavin Gamble (Thunder Rods) and James Stewart (Junior Productions).

The Micro Bangers King of Aghadowey race quite literally started with a bang, with Dan Dooner taking a very heavy fencing on the exit of the Brown Trout Bend to bring about a stoppage. Thankfully he escaped unhurt from a huge wreck, with Stephen Boyd hitting the front on the restart. His Bad Company team mate Leonard Dunn tried his best to get on terms as they avoided the carnage around them, but it was Boyd who romped home to the win over Dunn and Adam Maxwell, the latter even recovering from a spin along the way.
Next up was a chained pairs event which was a fun spectacle, with two cars chained together side by side. Jonny Murdock and Marty McKiernan entertained in no uncertain terms, but it was Boyd and William McFaul who took the victory. In the individual Allcomers event Boyd took a hefty home straight hit early on as Stevo McGrath took the lead, but he had no answer when the flying McFaul went past. There was a late race stoppage when Karl Smyth overturned, but on the restart McFaul surged ahead once again to take the win over Dunn and Murdock.
An excellent DD saw another rollover, this time for Dunn, and it boiled down to a three way fight between Murdock, Smyth and Steven Bolton. Bolton had hit trouble earlier in the evening and changed an engine to get back on track, and his superb pit work was rewarded with the victory after some very big hits between the trio. Dooner’s huge crash earned him the Best Wreck trophy, with Smyth deservedly crowned Entertainer of the Day.

The opening 1300 Stock Car heat saw Adam McMullan and Gary Elliott contest the lead from a very healthy entry, before Elliott stretched ahead. Peter Greer and Robbie Wright were closing towards the end, but it was Elliott who took the flag only to be demoted two places for jumping the start. That handed the victory to Greer ahead of Wright. Heat two was action packed too, with no shortage of use of the bumpers. Elliott this time had no penalties to worry about as he took the win over a closing Michael Logan and Wright.
Elliott and Wright shared the front row for an explosive final, which took two attempts to get started. Wright quickly edged clear out front as again the bumpers went flying in throughout the pack. Adrian McKinstry took a heavy knock to bring out the caution flags, but Wright made the perfect restart to pull clear and take the win and the King of Aghadowey title. Young Josh McKinstry pulled off a dramatic last bend hit to take second spot, just edging past Elliott on the run to the flag.

Once again a small field of ProStocks produced some excellent racing, with returnee Jonny Teggart the first to show in the opener before losing out to Dylan Booth. Irish Champion Dan Shannon then scythed through to take the win over Steven Haugh and Joe Largey. Heat two was a cracking race, with Teggart again leading before being demoted by Booth, Largey and Haugh. These three then swapped the lead on numerous occasions with the bumpers being put to good use, with Haugh ahead when it mattered most over Largey and Booth.
The final was the second round of the McElmeel Mobility Service Supreme Series, with Haugh, Largey and Shannon at it hammer and tongs right from the off. Largey got spun aside as Shannon made good his escape out front, only for his lead to be wiped out by a caution period for a loose spring on the raceway. On the restart it was obvious Shannon was struggling with an ailing car, and Haugh just held a watching brief in second until the last bend. He went for the kill, thumping Shannon wide to come through to snatch the win in emphatic style. Shannon had to make do with second ahead of a recovering Largey. Haugh received a new race tyre from the series sponsors for his efforts.

An excellent line up of sixteen Thunder Rods lined up for their opening heat, with David King unfortunately failing to get away at the green flag. Most of the field avoided him, but the unsighted Norman Purdy and Andrew McLean unfortunately collected him at full chat. Thankfully all emerged fine from the wreckage, with Gavin Gamble leading initially before losing out to Chris Baird. Baird took the win in style with James Goldie’s late outside line charge netting him second on the line ahead of Gamble. Recent newcomer Graham Loughlin took a morale boosting flag to flag win in the second heat, heading home Baird and Jason Darragh with a huge scrap behind for the places.
The final saw Gamble quickly take up the lead and get his head down to build an advantage, with Loughlin and then Baird giving chase behind. Purdy had worked miracles to repair his car after the heat one crash, and he eventually appeared in second to give chase to the leader. He whittled down Gamble’s advantage, but Gavin had all under control to take a deserved feature race win after a fine drive. Purdy, Baird and Darragh rounded out the top places.

The young Junior Productions stars completed the race programme, with Aaron Ward and James Stewart disputing the early lead in heat one. All the while though Graham Meek was chasing hard, and he slipped past to take the victory over Stewart and Ward, while a huge scrap for the places went right to wire amongst the star graders. Stewart got past Ward much earlier in heat two, and he raced clear to take a very impressive win over Adam Weir and Meek.
Once again in the final the star men were involved in a huge battle, with Weir, Drew McKeown and Adam McFall hardly apart during the whole duration of the event. Up front though Stewart was stamping his authority all over the race, racing clear to take his first ever final victory in the formula after a polished performance. Callum Magill chased hard and almost got on terms nearing the end, but he had to settle for second ahead of Weir, McKeown and McFall.

A fantastic evening of racing was served up at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday night, with all five formulas on show producing healthy grids and excellent on track action. Enniskillen's Stevie McNiece was victorious in a closely fought second round of the Stock Rods PC Paints & Components Challenge Series, whilst Birches star Robbie Wright claimed the spoils in the second round of the 1300 Stock Cars Ryan Wright Signs Iron Man Series. Portadown's European Champion Jordan Rochford took a fine win in the Lightning Rods, with the other feature races at the Dungannon Hot Tub Hire sponsored meeting falling to Cavan's Stephen Clarke in the Rookie Bangers and young Portadown star Max Hobson in the Ninja Karts.

The Stock Rods again broke the 20-car barrier, with some tight racing on a packed raceway. Robert McIlroy set the pace in the opening heat before losing out to a fast charging Mark Overend. The Portadown driver sped home to his first ever win in the formula, holding off McIlroy and Gary Butler at the flag. McIlroy bounced back to take a flag to flag win in the second heat, with Overend again impressing in second ahead of Ryan Murphy, with former World Champion Stevie McNiece catching the eye as he made progress to sixth from the rear of the grid.

The final paired heat winners McIlroy and Overend on the front row, and after an electric start McNiece moved ahead to the lead in front of the novice graded drivers. Stevie pulled off a great save early on as he got well out of shape on the exit of turn four, before a caution period for a turn one incident. McNiece pulled clear on the restart, with a great battle ensuing behind between Shane McMillan, Jonny Cardwell and Curtis Greer. McNiece romped home to the win ahead of Cardwell and Greer, with all three receiving great prizes from series sponsor Rodney Wallace of Ballymoney based PC Paints & Components.

For the Lightning Rods it was their final meeting before the World Championship is staged at Aghadowey Oval next month, and as always there were plenty of talking points amongst the healthy line up. Dylan McCann led the majority of the opening heat from the front of the grid, but he lost out to eventual winner Mark Corry late on, with Richard Stewart slipping through to second. Stewart pressurised the leader late on, but it was Corry who took a morale boosting win. Stewart then went one better in heat two, relegating early leader Adam McCann to take a clear victory over Nigel Jackson and the excellent new car of Tam Agnew.

Adam McCann led the opening laps of the feature race final, before Agnew slipped ahead. The track was becoming very slippery indeed as oil went down, with European Champion Jordan Rochford hitting the front at the half way mark. Heavy backmarking traffic saw Irish Champion Jackson whittle down Rochford's lead, but Jordan held on to take a fine victory over Jackson and Aaron Brunton. It was just reward for Rochford and his team who had changed an engine after problems in practice.

For the 1300 Stock Cars it was Round 2 of the Ryan Wright Signs Iron Man Series, with a new race tyre up for grabs for the winner. Recent newcomer Darryl McAleese led them away in heat one, before Josh McKinstry soared past to take the chequered flag. He had been away much too quick at the green flag though, and was docked two places in the final analysis which handed the win to Jamie McCann ahead of McAleese. Heat two saw McAleese relieved of the lead by Gary Elliott, and it was he who raced home to the win over Robbie Wright and
McAleese.

The final saw the drivers line up with the highest points scorer to the front of their grade, and again the start would prove crucial. Elliott was past McAleese and into the lead during the first lap, but attracted a warning from Race Control for jumping the start. Gary held on all the way despite the rapid Wright closing in. Robbie went for a do or die last bender but wasn't just close enough, but the Stewards then handed him victory as Elliott simply had to be penalised for his early getaway at the race start. Wright inherited the win ahead of Michael Logan, with Elliott having to make do with third.

A fantastic field of 24 Rookie Bangers came under starters orders for their first heat, with Peter McConnell going ahead early on before a stoppage when Dwayne Lynch went for a rollover on the home straight. At the restart Rab Wharry was spun from second place as McConnell went on to take the flag. Afterwards though he failed the post race checks on a technical issue and was disqualified from the meeting, which elevated Stephen Clarke to the race win ahead of Conor Finegan and Stephen Murray. The action came thick and fast once again in heat two, with Stephen Murray this time a clear winner amongst the carnage around him. Clarke and Finegan filled out the top three.

Reigning points champion Sammy Fisher worked his way through to the lead in the early stages of the final before he found trouble on the back straight, which eliminated him from proceedings. Again it was an action packed thriller, with Murray and then Clarke hitting the front. Bailieborough driver Clarke was in control though, racing home to victory over Murray and Eugene Cadden at the end of another great night for the formula.

Completing the programme were the Ninja Karts, and the young stars served up three excellent races. Lexi Crooks led the opening heat before losing out to a flying Lauren Berry. Lauren went on to take the win which made amends for her disappointment at the last meeting which she spun from the lead of the final. There was a nasty accident on the run to the flag for Odhran Monaghan, but after being carefully extracted from his kart by the track staff and St John's Ambulance crew he was absolutely fine. Behind winner Berry, Lacey Bevan and Max Hobson completed the top three. Leyton Hughes showed a great turn of speed to lead the second heat before losing out to Crooks who powered home to take the second win of the evening for the girls. Bevan was once again second ahead of Hobson.

Hughes and then Crooks were at the head of the field in the final, before a caution period when Ryan Berry and Hughes collided on the Annaghmore Bend. The drivers all took their first ever rolling start excellently, with Hobson then tearing around the outside to take a fantastic victory over Crooks and Rhea McConkey. Lexi also received a special award for the top white or yellow grade finisher courtesy of sponsors Dungannon Hot Tub Hire.
