Antrim’s Leyton Hughes and England’s Boden Murfin were the big winners at Aghadowey Oval on Saturday night, when the young drivers took centre stage. Hughes was victorious in the Junior Productions Irish Open Championship, whilst a sensational National Ministox Irish Championship fell the way of Mufin after a titanic struggle.
Other feature race wins on the evening fell to Bleary’s Drew McKeown (2.0 Hot Rods), Larne’s Samuel Wilson (Stock Rods) and Portglenone’s Clifford Gordon (Thunder Rods).

A very healthy field of almost 30 Junior Productions, including a number of Scottish visitors, arrived for their Irish Open Championship. Callum Doak was first across the line in an incident-strewn opening heat, but in the final analysis he was excluded from the result for his part in a race stoppage. That handed victory to defending champion Leyton Hughes over Harry Minish.
Jake Devlin overcame early leader Andrew Hawe to win the second heat, with Minish again showing his consistency in second. Heat three went to Matthew Weir after he slipped past early pacesetter Dylan Fegan who had to be content with second.
The tension was at fever pitch before the Irish Open Final, with Hughes getting the jump on Minish at the start to move ahead. Hughes again settled into the lead after a mid-race caution period, and despite the best efforts of Minish it was Hughes who raced home to successfully defend his Irish Open Championship title. Minish, Daniel Stewart and Devlin completed the top four.

The stunning National Ministox arrived from England for their annual visit, and they once again thrilled the local fans with some outstanding racing. There was a great battle out front in the opening heat, before Luke Syrett-Barsby broke clear to take the victory over Kasey Jones.
That same lead pairing again fought out the win in the second heat, with this time Jones coming back hard to take the chequered flag ahead of Syrett-Barsby. Heat three saw Syrett-Barsby again in victory lane, after he demoted early pacesetter Ollie Armstrong.

The Irish Championship final saw the superb cars look very impressive under the floodlights. What followed was a simply sensational event, with a three way dice for much of the distance between Syrett-Barsby, Jones and Boden Murfin. They swapped the lead lap after lap, and sometime twice and three times a lap as they entertained the crowds. The sparks were flying as they thundered off the wall bend after bend, but it was Murfin who snatched the win in tremendous fashion, just ahead of Syrett-Barsby and Jones.

The 2.0 Hot Rods saw a debut for the new Allen Cherry Vauxhall, alongside a return for veteran campaigner Davy Potter. Dean McFarland took a clear win in the opening heat ahead of Scotland’s Frankie Cunningham, before Adam Best came home to the flag in a superb heat two ahead of Adam Heatrick and Denver Grattan. The NI Points Championship title was also up for decision, but unfortunately a retirement in this one for Drew McKeown meant the title went the way of defending champ Jordan Rochford.
McKeown was out to make amends in the final though, surging through the field to take the win in emphatic style ahead of McFarland and Rochford.

An incident packed opening Stock Rod race went to Stevie McNiece, after on-the-road winner Declan O’Connor was excluded for an incident early in the race that led to the demise of Joe Largey. Victor McAfee and Jonny Cardwell filled the top three. Heat two saw a fine win for Mark Overend, the Portadown driver staving off a hardy challenge from stalwart McAfee, with Victor having to settle for his second runner up spot of the evening.
Samuel Wilson quickly worked his way ahead in the final, holding off the pack before they were brought up short by an engine failure in the pack which coated the track in oil. At the resumption Wilson managed to hold them all off right to the flag, taking a very welcome and deserved win over Sam McNeice and Stevie McNiece.

Completing the programme were the competitive Thunder Rods division, with Adam Graham taking the opener over Clifford Gordon and Sam Preston. Heat two then saw a great outside line drive from long-time campaigner Graham Young to net the win, over Graham and Curtis Greer.
The final saw Gordon relegate Chris McNeill early on to hit the front, and Clifford even survived a mid race stoppage to hold on out front all the way to the chequered flag. It was just reward for all his hard work to repair his car after a big crash at the previous meeting. Graham, David Wilson and McNeill completed the top places.

The conditions turned very wet during the second half of Saturday evening’s race meeting at Tullyroan Oval, with Crumlin’s Adam Maxwell turning on the style to win the feature race for the elite National Hot Rod. Aughnacloy’s World Champion Kyle Beattie won the Superstox Tullyroan Challenge Cup after another storming drive, with the other feature race winners being Armagh’s Mark Foster in the Stock Rods, Magheralin’s Stuart Agnew in the Lightning Rods and Monaghan’s Phillip Farrell in the Micro Bangers.

The opening heat for the National Hot Rods saw a deserved win for veteran Keith Martin, the former World Champion holding off Thomas Dilly and Mark Heatrick at the flag. In the damp in heat two, Philip McCloy celebrated a welcome win, just a week before his wedding. Martin and Derek McMillan filled the places.
The track was awash come final time, Round 13 of Simpson Race Exhausts World Series NI. Heat winners Martin and McCloy squabbled over the lead early on, but neither had any resistance to offer to the flying Adam Maxwell. Adam’s pace in the wet was on another level to the rest, and he raced home to a very well deserved final win after a dominant drive. John Christie, Derek McMillan and Glenn Bell were next home, but all some way behind the winner.

The Superstox produced fantastic entertainment all evening, with novice grader Gerard Hartley hanging on for the opening heat win over Conor Murphy and Craig McConnell. Heat two fell to an impressive David McMenemy ahead of Steven Haugh, with Curtis Greer snatching third after a fantastic four way scrap.
The Tullyroan Challenge Cup final was the race of the night by some distance, with Haugh, Jordan Robinson, Kyle Beattie and McConnell trading blows and places throughout. In the wet conditions this was good, old-fashioned Stock Car racing with no quarter given, and certainly none expected! When the others tripped over a backmarker and lost time, Beattie was able to break clear to take the win and the trophy in emphatic style - all after starting the final at the back of the grid after not finishing either heat. Second went to McConnell ahead of Robinson and Haugh.

Mark Foster stamped his authority all over the opening Stock Rods heat, winning by a distance over Dan Shannon and Declan O’Connor after Mark Crawford was demoted from second for contact. Mark Overend then took a rare but very welcome win in heat two, as he drove an excellent race to hold off a whole posse of chasers. Foster and Stevie McNiece filled the places at the chequers.
Foster hit the front on lap four of the final, and he would never be headed as he stormed home to complete his double for the evening and earn a grading rise for the next meeting. Sam McNeice, Samuel Wilson and Crawford filled the premier positions at the flag.

The Lightning Rods opening heat saw another welcome win for Gerry Rogers, who had only tasted victory for the first ever time at the last meeting! James McKinney chased him home in that one, before James went on to record the victory in heat two over Rogers and World Champion Ricky Shaw. Nigel Jackson had edged ahead in this one, only to be sidelined with a gearbox fault.
Recent newcomer Ian Hobson impressed out front early in the final before Mark McCambridge powered clear. But British and Irish Champion Stuart Agnew was on a mission, Stuart sliding ahead with just three laps to go to claim the win. McCambridge, McKinney and Shaw rounded out the places.

A smaller than expected entry of Micro Bangers still put on a show, with Monaghan’s Phillip Farrell surging clear to win a tame ‘Micro Madness’ final ahead of Jay Gurney and Aaron Clarke. Gurney then went on to win the first Allcomers over Jonny Murdock, before that same duo claimed similar places in Allcomers 2.
The Destruction Derby completed the night, with Murdock getting the win after a great battle with Gurney and Josh Anderson. Murdock also claimed the Entertainer of the Day award whilst Gurney claimed Best Wreck.

The annual pre-NW200 oval racing meeting at Aghadowey Oval took place on Friday night May 12th, with some great racing across all four formulas on show. Dungannon’s Derek Martin scooped the National Hot Rods final, with Enniskillen’s Stevie McNiece successfully defending his King of Aghadowey title in the Stock Rods. Kilrea’s Zack McCombe was the winner in the exciting Thunder Rods, whilst there was a first ever final win in the Junior Productions for Portadown’s Brandon Litter.

Local Aghadowey racer Richard Stewart was the star man in the National Hot Rod heats, taking the opener in style ahead of Philip McCloy and Gary Woolsey. Heat two saw Richard again take the chequered flag, this time ahead of Andrew Stewart with Nigel McCauley getting the best of a great scrap for third.
Richard Stewart again led the final early on, the twelfth round of Simpson Race Exhausts World Series NI. He wasn’t getting everything his own way this time though, as McCloy, Thomas Dilly, Derek Martin and Shane Murray joined in for a great 5-car dice for the lead. Stewart thwarted the efforts of McCloy and Dilly, but it was Martin who swooped around the outside to take the win ahead of Murray, Dilly, Stewart and McCloy.

Defending King of Aghadowey Stevie McNiece got his night off to the best possible start by taking the heat one win over Dan Shannon and Victor McAfee, before controversy and drama clouded heat two. Samuel Wilson was spun out early on with Mark Crawford collecting his stricken car. Mark Foster raced home to the win, but after video evidence was viewed he was deemed the cause of Wilson’s spin and was disqualified. That handed the win to Kells driver Adam Sloan over Sam McNeice and Stevie McNiece.
Stevie McNiece led Irish Champion Shannon and Sam McNeice early in the final, before a huge engine blow up and fire on Sloan’s car brought proceedings to a halt. At the resumption there was no stopping Stevie on his march to the title, as he duly took the win over Sam McNeice who managed to slip past Shannon late on for second.

Another excellent entry of teenage Junior Productions stars saw a first ever win in the opening heat for Lacy Bevan, who raced home ahead of Ryan Berry and Daniel Stewart after a great race. Heat two saw Stewart take the win this time with a commanding drive. Harry Minish and Berry finished second and third on the road, but were demoted for incidents during the race. That elevated Matthew Weir and Joshua Murray to the podium places.
Brandon Litter was first to show in the final, but he had Robbie Dallas chasing him down. Just as Robbie was about to mount a challenge for the lead he was unfortunately baulked by a backmarker, with the breathing space allowing Litter to calmly bring it home for his first ever feature race win after a great drive. Dallas, Minish and Berry filled the top places at the end of a fine night of action from the stars of the future.

Once again the Thunder Rods entry topped 20 cars, with Clifford Gordon taking a flag to flag win in the first heat over Zack McCombe and Tom Archibald. Heat two saw Graham Young ahead until the half way mark, before McCombe took over to win despite the close attentions of Andrew McLean.
The final was marred by a huge early crash which eliminated a number of the front runners and left Gordon, McLean and Josh Goligher amongst others with heavy damage. On the restart McCombe quickly hit the front, and he was never headed as he completed his double for the night to earn and upgrade for the next meeting. Curtis Greer, Daniel Rodgers, Adam Graham and Young were the next drivers home.

Antrim driver Conor Hughes and Hampshire youngster Jack Jones were both Tullyroan Challenge Cup winners at Sunday’s Tullyroan Oval race meeting, in the 2,0 Hot Rods and Ninja Karts respectively. Other feature race wins at the Coronation weekend meeting were Aghalee’s Chris Hamill (1300 Stock Cars), Birches driver Steven Haugh (Superstox) and Portadown star (Lightning Rods).

Denver Grattan was victorious in the opening qualifying heat of the 2.0 Hot Rods, the Banbridge driver showing excellent pace to lead home Conor Hughes and Ryan McCrory. With the grid reversed for heat two, it was World Champion Jordan Rochford who took the win, but only after first over the line Allen Cherry was docked 2 places for an over robust defence of his lead spot.
Consistency across the heats saw Drew McKeown and Hughes share the front row for the Tullyroan Challenge Cup final, and it was Hughes who got the jump when the green flag dropped. As Conor controlled the race to take a clear win, Grattan nipped past McKeown to take the runner up spot ahead of McKeown, Adam Best and Rochford.

A number of visiting Ninja Kart drivers joined the locals for their Tullyoan Challenge Cup, with Jaxon Cairns and Kori Curran having spells at the head of heat one. England’s Jack Jones surged into the lead late on to take the win over Curran and Keegan Turtle. There was late drama in heat two, with another English driver, Mason Carberry, taking the victory over Curran and Scotland’s Katie-Lee Smart.
The final turned out to be a cracker, with the destination of the trophy boiling down to a frantic last lap between a whole host of the top runners. As they came to the final bend they were confronted with a recovering backmarker. Some went inside, some outside, and there was a superb drag race to the line. Hampshire lad Jones just got the verdict by 0.06 of a second, ahead of Carberry, Riley Dawson-Stirling and Charlie Weston at the end of a superb day of racing from the primary school kids.

Some of the best racing of the day came from the all-action 1300 Stock Cars, with Michael Logan taking his aged Toyota Starlet to the heat one win ahead of Ryan Stewart and Chris Hamill. In heat two Hamill blew an engine late on, coating the track in oil and causing a multiple car shunt which saw Fionn Donnelly rolling onto his roof. At the resumption, Stewart took the win over Irish Champion Jonathan Brown and Josh McKinstry.
The final saw Hamill make the grid after a frantic engine change from his team. An action packed affair saw the bumpers being put to good use, and sensationally it was Hamill who made all the hard work worthwhile by charging through to take the victory and the silverware. Ivan Elliott and Matthew Milliken filled the podium places.

Top Scottish ace Dean Johnston joined the local drivers on the Superstox grid, as Gerard Hartley led the opening heat before being demoted late on by Curtis Greer. Curtis unfortunately was later docked a number of places for starting in the wrong grid position, which handed the win to Craig McConnell over Hartley and World title holder Kyle Beattie. Heat two saw Dungannon’s David McMenemy take the win over Jordan Robinson and McConnell.
The final saw Conor Murphy build a healthy lead early on, but he soon had the leading star men hunting him down. First to show was Irish Champion Steven Haugh, who burst through to take the win in some style over Murphy, McConnell and Johnston.

Strabane’s James McKinney took the opening Lightning Rods heat ahead of Nigel Jackson and Mark McCambridge, before Gerry Rogers held on for the heat two win. A delighted Gerry enjoyed his lap of honour for what was his first ever win, having been a stalwart of the formula for many years.
Rogers again went ahead in the final, being challenged initially by McCambridge. Mark went ahead with Dean Catherwood in tow, before Jackson produced one of his expert outside line runs to surge alongside and past to the lead. Nigel rounded out the distance to take his fourth feature race win (including a European Championship triumph at Tipperary) in as many weeks. McCambridge and Mark Corry filled out the top three.

Completing the programme were a trio of demo runs from Anthony Morgan's Classic Hot Rod and the National Hot Rods of Derek McMillan and Sean Dynes.
