Donemana’s Leonard Dunn took a splendid final win to lead his Bad Company team to victory in the Micro Bangers Teams Championship at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday evening. Alongside Karl Smyth and Jonny Rutherford, Dunn came out on top of a dramatic night of drama and destruction. Other feature race winners at the meeting, kindly sponsored by The Vault Bistro of Tandragee, were Cullybackey’s Curtis Greer (Stock Rods), Birches ace Robbie Wright (1300 Stock Cars), Randalstown’s Sam Percy (Junior Productions) and another Birches man, Steven Haugh, in the ProStocks.

There was drama right from the off in heat one for the Micro Bangers, as Jonny Rutherford was taken headlong into the fence by Deano McGrath. Rutherford rolled over in a huge shunt, but he thankfully escaped unhurt. On the restart Willie McFaul took the win for Bad Company B ahead of Leonard Dunn of Bad Company A. Heat two saw a huge wrecking train on the Tullyroan Bend with some monster hits going in, but out front William McFaul Jnr and Dunn were contesting the lead. McFaul sent Dunn sliding into the turn four chaos on the last lap to take the win for Bad Company B.
The final saw Dunn out front chased by McFaul Jnr. William made his move into the last bend but sensationally missed and landed into the parked car of Adam Maxwell! Dunn took the flag over Team Sour’s Jack Kennedy and Steven Bolton of Team TBG. That left just the Destruction Derby to go with a number of teams still in contention. It was dominated by the Team Sour drivers with welcome English visitor Marc Key coming out on top after finishing off Paul Stafford. Overall Bad Company A took the honours ahead of a tie for second between Team Sour B and Bad Company B.

Rutherford took the Best Wreck trophy for his early heat one smash, whilst Tony Gillespie captured the Entertainer of the Day award.

The Stock Rods were contesting the second round of the Butler Motorsport Challenge Series, with Adam White racing to a clear win in heat one over Stuart Agnew and Jordan McCann. White then repeated the feat in heat two, edging past Agnew late on to grab the win over Agnew and Jonny Cardwell, after Dan Shannon was docked from third for contact.
The opening exchanges to the final were frantic to say the least, with a number of penalties handed out for some very untidy driving. Shannon earned himself a disqualification for his troubles as McCann went ahead until challenged by White. As they tripped over each other, National and Irish Champion Curtis Greer accepted the gift of the lead and raced home to the chequered flag for a fine win. Cardwell, Shane McMillan and Derek McMillan chased him across the line.

Gareth Halliday set the pace in the opening 1300 Stock Cars heat, before Jamie McCann bumpered his way past to win in the closing stages. Robbie Wright’s last bend lunge on Halliday saw him grab second ahead of Josh McKinstry. It was Ryan Stewart who took the second heat honours ahead of McKinstry.
McCann was on pole for the Tullyroan Challenge Cup final, and the opening couple of laps were truly fantastic with the bumpers exchanged in no uncertain terms. Wright worked his way ahead, with Stewart coming through to second, whilst the rest battled hard over third. It was Wright who easily took the win over Stewart, with Calvin Blake the best of the battling rest in third.

Novice Alex Milligan impressed all evening in the Junior Productions, racing ahead in the opener only to lose out late on to a flying Sam Percy. Milligan did well to fend off Graham Meek for second on the line. Heat two again saw Milligan out front, this time losing out the lead with just four laps to go as Percy swooped past in style to complete his double and earn a rise to the red grade for the final.
The upgrade for the final didn’t deter young Percy at all, and he quickly got the bit between his teeth early on to chase down the frontrunners. Sam has been improving greatly in recent times, and he was able to slice past Milligan to take it up just past the half way mark to record the perfect hat-trick of wins. Sam McNeice came through to second ahead of Irish Open Champion Mark Crawford.

European Champion Steven Haugh reeled off a faultless hat-trick in the ProStocks, which featured debuts for Jonny Peoples and Gary Gamble. Steven led Joe Largey and Sam Stewart home in heat one, before heat two saw the same podium finishers. That one ended up in controversy as a heavy fencing of Rab Wharry led to Dylan Booth being loaded up from the remainder of the evening. Haugh then took an easy final win too ahead of Largey and Stewart.

Young Antrim star Leyton Hughes was on top form at Aghadowey Oval’s holiday meeting on Sunday afternoon, as he landed the Ninja Karts Golden Helmet Trophy after a fantastic drive against an international entry. Leyton held off Scottish driver Rachel Kidd in a tense finish to land the spoils, with other big victories at the LJN Designs of Ballykelly sponsored meeting falling to Randalstown’s Sam McNeice in the Junior Productions, Portadown’s Mark Corry (Lightning Rods) and Dublin’s Gary Butler (Stock Rods), whilst recent Portadown newcomer Gary Fowler took a faultless hat-trick of wins in the 2.0 Hot Rods. The entertaining Caravan Destruction Derby fell to Coagh’s Dessie Dallas after an entertaining event.

Scottish trio Rachel and Dougie Kidd and Declan Dixon joined the locals for the Ninja Karts Golden Helmet, with Dougie Kidd the man to watch during the heats. He took the opener with a fine drive over his sister Rachel with Andrew Hawe in third, before Dougie then made it two from two by taking the second heat win too, this time over Hawe and Leyton Hughes.
Dougie Kidd and Hawe qualified up front for the Golden Helmet final, with Dougie setting the initial pace ahead of his sister Rachel. Antrim ace Hughes then pulled off a tremendous outside pass to take up the running, and despite the close attentions of Rachel Kidd he held on for a deserved win. Rachel came home in second in her very last Ninja Kart race having now reached the upper age limit, with Portadown’s Max Hobson taking the third placed trophy.

The coveted Young Trophy, presented annually by the Young and Hosie families, was up for grabs in the Junior Productions, with Randalstown’s Sam Percy showing the rest a clean pair of heels in the opener to take a great win over Graham Meek and Sam McNeice. Alex Milligan and then Jordan Nicholl had spells out front in the second heat, before Percy lost out as he bravely tried the outside line to grab the lead. That opened the door for Mark Crawford to take the win over Adam McFall and McNeice.
The Young Trophy final saw the impressive Percy set the initial pace before McNeice found the slightest of gaps down his inside to take up the running. Sam duly completed the rest of the distance to land the victory in some style, with Crawford and Matthew Nicholl completing the podium finishers.

For the Lightning Rods it was the second round of the A Percy Body Repairs Challenge Series, with Ronan McNally fighting a rearguard battle in the opening heat to hold off a whole posse of challengers. Ronan just got the verdict over Nigel Jackson and Jordan Rochford on the line. Heat two saw Ally Neill stretch clear out front early on, before mechanical problems forced him into retirement. He left oil on the track which made the going very tricky for a time, with Mark Corry coming out on top to take the win over Dermot Tynan and McNally.
The closed grid final saw Corry get the best getaway to open out a good lead, as the rest squabbled behind. Rochford was closing fast at the end, but Mark held it all together to take the victory and a nice voucher courtesy of the series sponsors. Rochford was a gallant runner up, with McNally coming home third after getting the best of a huge battle amongst the pack that went on for much of the race.

An excellent turnout of 2.0 Hot Rods produced three excellent races, with novice grader Gary Fowler on top form all afternoon. He calmly took the opener over Stephen Emerson and Drew McKeown, before it became a Fowler double as he raced home to the second heat win too. This time Lester McCloy took second in his best run in the formula to date, with Thomas Dilly and Denver Grattan next home.
An upgrading to yellow made little difference to Fowler in the LJN Designs final, as he quickly swooped past McCloy and Noel Tierney to take up the running. Gary raced home to take the win and complete a faultless hat-trick for the afternoon, with Dilly in second and Adam Best the top star grader in third place. The 2.0 Hot Rods were on top form all afternoon, which bodes well for the upcoming British Championship at Aghadowey at the end of the month.

Prior to the opening Stock Rods heat, the new British Champion Derek McMillan was paraded to the crowd following his big win at Ipswich last weekend. Derek also received the Racewear Design DMC Race Promotions Driver of the Month trophy for June. Recent graduate from the Junior Productions, Adam Weir from Broughshane, showed great maturity to take the opening heat win from the novice grade after a fine drive. Stuart Agnew and Gary Butler chased him home, before Adam again set the pace in heat two. The race was suspended when Samuel Murphy lost a wheel, which brought the field onto the tail of the leader for the restart. Philip Wilson found a gap down the inside of Weir to go ahead, the Larne man just holding off Butler for the win with Johny Gillespie in third.
Butler and Weir shared the front row for the final, with Dublin man Butler immediately setting the pace out front. Weir ran a creditable second for some time, before multi-champion Derek McMillan got past him to chase after the leader. Butler was totally in command though, taking the win over McMillan with 16-year-old Weir again excelling in third spot.

The holiday afternoon came to a climax with the crazy Caravan Destruction Derby. Tam Agnew and Matthew McKinstry got well and truly stuck in early on, before both went out on the Brown Trout Bend. It came down to a battle between caravan race specialist Dessie Dallas and Thomas Kilpatrick, with Kilpatrick doing his best to avoid the carnage and Dallas intent on causing some! Both went in to the stranded Agnew hard, and when they both couldn’t continue the win was awarded to Dallas for his entertaining antics.

In our latest points update, Ahoghill's Marc Morrell leads the way in the Maxwell Freight Services NI Points Championship with a 15 point advantage over Derek McMillan and Micky McFall a further point adrift. Morell also leads the 2019 World Championship qualifying points chart, this time by just one point from McMillan with Victor McAfee in third.
