Stewart Races To Tullyroan Challenge Cup Victory
All five formulas on show at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday evening produced some ultra competitive race action on a warm summer’s evening blighted by one heavy shower. Former Irish Champion Richard Stewart from Aghadowey took a fine win in the Lightning Rods Tullyroan Challenge Cup, while Portadown’s Adam Hylands was victorious in the second round of the 2.0 Hot Rods Hooiser Racing Tire Challenge Series. Young Ryan Berry took his first ever race win as he claimed the Ninja Karts Golden Helmet Award, whilst Chris Hamill celebrated a heat and final double in the Stock Rods and Irish Champion Drew McKeown claimed the Junior Productions honours at the DRS Steelbuildings sponsored event.

Another very healthy field of Lightning Rods assembled to contest the Tullyroan Challenge Cup, with Scott Cochrane taking the first heat win in an event which saw a heavy shower hit the circuit mid race. Long time leader Mark Corry was bundled out of the race which earned Jonny McMillan a disqualification, but Cochrane coped admirably with the tricky conditions to take the win over Stephen Hollywood and Ricky Shaw. The reverse grid second heat saw Irish Champion Nigel Jackson take the win, overcoming some heavy pressure from Richard Stewart and a late race caution too.
Stewart and Cochrane shared the front row for the final, with Stewart assuming the lead with Cochrane and Jackson for close company. Cochrane glanced the home straight wall and lost a wheel to bring about a caution period, but Stewart wasn’t to be denied as he romped home to a fine victory over Jackson and Jordan Rochford.

A depleted field of 2.0 Hot Rods arrived for the second round of the Hoosier Racing Tire Challenge Series. Davy Potter set the pace for much of the opening heat until Adam Hylands found a way past in the closing stages. The robust move caught the eye of the Race Stewards with Hylands fortunate to keep the win over Allen Cherry and Potter. Heat two wasn’t without controversy too, as long time leader Thomas Morrison lost out when the leaders encountered a backmarker at just the wrong time. Adam Best claimed the win over Hylands and Stuart Cochrane.
Hylands had annexed pole spot for the final, and went on to lead from flag to flag despite the close attentions of Best in second. Hylands received a new Hoosier race tyre courtesy of the series sponsors, with Best and Cochrane rounding out the podium.
During the meeting Hylands was also presented with the National Hot Rods Hankook Performance Tyres World Series NI Shield after he won the season long points chase in the elite formula on the Ulster ovals.

The Ninja Karts saw a debut for Lexi Crooks, with Irish Champion Daniel Stewart snatching the win in the closing stages after a great effort from long time leader Lauren Berry, who had to settle for second ahead of Max Hobson. Stewart again took the win in heat two, with Lauren Berry again in second ahead of Andrew Hawe.
The final for the Golden Helmet Award saw Lauren Berry set the early pace as she chased her first ever race victory, leading her brother Ryan initially. Stewart was on a charge but Lauren was driving the race of her life to hang on to her advantage. Disaster struck at the start of the last lap though as she spun out, receiving a glancing blow from Hobson. The reds came out immediately to check on Lauren, who emerged unscathed to a tremendous ovation from the crowd for her efforts. The one lap dash to the flag saw Stewart lead them off, but Ryan Berry made a great start to slip past into the lead. As they entered the final turn there was contact between the two leading karts, with Stewart coming through to take the flag. The Stewards had no option but to impose a penalty on Daniel, handing the win and the Golden Helmet trophy to a delighted Ryan Berry for his first ever race victory. Lacey Bevan inherited second with Stewart demoted to third place.

A great turnout of Stock Rods saw Chris Hamill demote Robert McIlroy just after half distance to take the opening heat victory, with McIlroy holding on for second ahead of Mark Overend. Overend then had a spell out front in heat two before losing out to Samuel Montgomery as a great race developed at the head of the pack. Formula debutant Matthew McKinstry then produced a great drive to nip ahead and take a great win over Gary Butler and Curtis Greer.
It was hard work for the top stars once again in the final from the rear of the line up, with McIlroy going ahead for the first ten laps. By that stage Hamill had relegated his fellow yellow graders to take the challenge to the leader, and he duly slipped by to record a sublime heat and final double and with it earn a grading rise for the next meeting. Butler again impressed in second ahead of a fast charging Shane McMillan and Stevie McNiece from the star grade.

The Junior Productions saw James Stewart have his best meeting to date, and he led the opening heat when they were brought to a halt for a caution period. James led the rest of the way home but was unfortunately docked for jumping the restart, something that had been a topic in the pre-race drivers briefing. That elevated Matthew Nicholl to the win over Adam Weir, with Stewart having to make do with third spot. Former Ninja Karts star Aaron Ward took a handsome flag to flag win in the second heat, leading home Nicholl and Adam McFall.
Stewart again impressed as he led the opening exchanges of the final, even overcoming a mid race caution which brought the field onto his tail. He continued to drive very well until Nicholl found a way past in the closing to take the chequered flag. The Stewards weren’t happy with his pass on Stewart and Matthew was unfortunately docked two places in the final analysis, handing the victory to Irish Champion Drew McKeown ahead of Sam McNeice and Nicholl.

Many thanks to our meeting sponsors, DRS Steelbuildings
