Boyd and Wright Crowned Kings At Aghadowey
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 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.

Many thanks to our meeting sponsors,
