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.

A dramatic Bank Holiday Monday at Aghadowey Oval served up a great mix of fantastic racing and spectacular spills! Portadown star Glenn Bell won the feature event in the National Hot Rods, with Limavady's Stephen Goligher lifting the Rookie Bangers King of Aghadowey after an exciting final. Young Kilmore lad Ryan Berry took the honours in a fantastic Young Trophy for Junior Productions, with the other feature race wins falling to Glenavy's Joe Largey (Stock Rods) and Strabane's Adam McKinney (Thunder Rods).

Richard Stewart and Philip McCloy both had spells out front in the opening National Hot Rod heat, before Derek McMillan worked his way past both to take the win over Thomas Dilly and Shane Murray. The second heat saw a fantastic win for Richard Stewart, as he just held off McMillan, Dilly and Glenn Bell in a very close finish.
Stewart again led the final, Round 11 of Simpson Race Exhausts World Series NI, staving off the initial advances of McMillan on the outside line. As Derek dropped back, Murray took up the challenge and circulated side by side with Stewart for many laps. When the duo ran wide, and opportunistic Bell quickly filled the gap to nip past both and race home to the victory, with Derek Martin and Murray filling out the places.

The Rookie Bangers put on some excellent entertainment for the holiday crowd, with Garvagh's William McFaul the winner of the opening heat despite a last bend lunge from Josh Goligher. Stephen Boyd led heat two amongst numerous spins and skirmishes, only for Stephen Goligher to nip past on the last lap to take the win.
The King of Aghadowey final was another great race with action galore, with Stephen Goligher again taking the win over his nephew Lucas Goligher, with Marc Morrell taking third.

A record domestic entry of Junior Productions was bolstered by visiting Scots Baillie Glencross and Koddi Wright as they contested The Young Trophy, presented for many years now by the Young and Hosie families. Lexi Crooks took the opening heat win, holding off Ryan Berry at the finish ahead of Brandon Litter. Andrew Hawe led the opening laps of the second heat before Berry continued his good day at the office by slipping past to take the win over Callum Doak and Joshua Murray.
Berry led the way in The Young Trophy final, holding off the advances of the impressive Doak right from the off. There was then a lengthy stoppage after a horrendous crash between Crooks and Lauren Berry. Thankfully both were eventually able to walk from their cars, with Ryan Berry competing the distance to take the win in style over Doak. After a number of penalties were imposed Andrew Russell got third, with Lacey Bevan taking the best white/yellow grade finisher award.

The opening Stock Rod heat fell to Mark Foster, who took a clear win over a huge second place battle that went the way of Ethan Dilly over Victor McAfee. Liam Irwin and Dilly both had spells out front in heat two before Adam Sloan surged ahead for a clear win over Dilly and Declan O'Connor.
The final will long be remembered for a huge accident on the Brown Trout Bend, as Dilly clashed wheels with O'Connor and was sent vaulting headlong into the retaining wall. After a long delay while Ethan was carefully extricated from his car, Joe Largey went on to take the win over Sloan and Stevie McNiece.

The Thunder Rods started in spectacular style with Sam Watt rolling over early on in heat one. At the resumption of racing Gary Freeburn battled with Christopher McNeill and Simon McLaughlin, with McNeill taking the win. Heat two saw McLaughlin get his hands on the chequered flag after relegating Freeburn from the lead.
Freeburn again led the final, before Adam McKinney swept ahead to take the win and the silverware ahead of Jordan Nicholl and McLaughlin.

Former World Champion John Christie from Ballinderry bounced right back to form at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday April 29th, winning the National Hot Rods final just two weeks after a huge crash left his car badly damaged. On a night of changing conditions, European and Irish Champion Drew McKeown from Bleary won the opening round of the 2.0 Hot Rods Hoosier Challenge Series, and Gordy McKee from Templepatrick scooped the Unlimited National Bangers Spring Classic.
Newly crowned European Champion Nigel Jackson from Portaodwn raced to a heat and final double in the Lightning Rods, with young Jack Morrison, also from Portadown, the winner in the Ninja Karts.

Round 10 of Simpson Race Exhausts World Series NI saw an opening heat win for Mark Heatrick after he demoted early leader Johnny McCloy. John Christie and Adam Hylands made the most of their generous blue grading to take second and third respectively. Heatrick repeated the feat in heat two, taking his second chequered flag of the evening ahead of Hylands and Philip McCloy.
The final was run in the wettest conditions of the night, with Johnny McCloy looking good out front for almost half the race distance. He could offer no resistance to Christie when he arrived though, John taking the win to go some way towards banishing the memory of his big crash a fortnight previously. Glenn Bell produced a great drive to take second ahead of Adam Maxwell, Derek Martin and Heatrick.

A scrappy opening heat for the 2.0 Hot Rods saw Allen Cherry take the win over World Champion Jordan Rochford and Conor Hughes, before Adam Best took the chequers in heat two ahead of Drew McKeown and Adam Heatrick.
Cherry beat Best away at the beginning of the Hoosier Tyres sponsored final to take the lead, but his start had grabbed the attention of Race Control and he was given a black cross warning board. An early caution period eliminated some fancied runners, but Cherry was totally in control to take the flag. He was unfortunately docked two places for a jump start, handing to victory to McKeown over Best.

Deano McGrath was the early leader in the Spring Classic for Unlimited National Bangers, but Gordy McKee quickly slipped past to take up the running and take the win over Deano McGrath and World Champion Stevo McGrath.
Kieran McIvor led the opening Allcomers until he went out, handing the win to Stevo McGrath over his cousin Deano. Leonard Dunn took the win in the second Allcomers after McIvor had again been ahead, with Stevo McGrath then taking the Destruction Derby win after a tough battle against David Gurney and Jonathan Compelli.
Deano McGrath took Entertainer of the Day with Best Wreck going to Tony Gillespie.

In the Lightning Rods opener, Dean Catherwood took the win over Stuart Agnew, after Kielian Toland had led for some distance. Dermot Tynan was the low grader to set the pace in heat two, before Nigel Jackson came past to win over Agnew and Mark Corry.
The final saw the worst of the conditions, and that played into the hands of wet weather expert Jackson. He relegated early leaders Mark McCambridge and James McKinney to take the win in some style over McKinney, Agnew and McCambridge.

An excellent field of Ninja Karts entertained as always, with Rowdy Grattan the man to watch in the heats. He took his first ever win in the opening race ahead of Jake Barnett and Keegan Turtle. Rowdy then won again in heat two, taking the flag clear of Jack Murphy and Barnett.
The final saw Grattan go out early on, his hat-trick hopes dashed. Barnett hit the front until a late race caution brought the whole field together for the restart. It was a very messy restart which resulted in a very lengthy Stewards Enquiry after the race. In the final analysis it was Jack Morrison who took a deserved win over Barnett and Irish Champion Charlie Johnston, after a number of penalties were handed down.
