Carl Storms To Heat and Final Double At Wet Tullyroan
The weather was far from ideal with persistent rain for most of the evening, but it failed to dampen the on track action at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday night. Packed grids were the order of the day, with Kells driver Carl Sloan taking a handsome heat and final double in Round 4 of the Simpson Race Exhausts World Series NI for National Hot Rods.
Donemana’s Leonard Dunn underlined his star man status in the Unlimited National Bangers with victory in the Tullyroan Supercup, whilst the other big winners at the McElmeel Mobility Services and Ray McGrath Transport sponsored event were Portadown’s World Champion Nigel Jackson in the Lightning Rods and Aughnacloy’s Kyle Beattie in the Superstox

Lurgan’s Ian McReynolds was the first to show in the opening National Hot Rods heat as the drivers adapted well to the tricky conditions. Carl Sloan was on a mission though from the blue grade, and he ran down Ian just past half distance to grab the spoils ahead of McReynolds and Shane Murray. McReynolds again set the heat two pace, and this time Ian had enough in hand to hold Sloan at bay to take a well deserved victory. Behind the lead duo, Derek Martin inherited third place after Jaimie McCurdy was docked two places for a jump start.
McReynolds quickly jumped ahead in the final, but Sloan was rapidly on the move to give chase. Carl slipped in front on lap eight, edging out quite an advantage too. Shane Murray was catching the eye as well, leaving the rest of the star grade trailing in his wake as he coolly worked his way up to second. Sloan was well down the road by this stage, but a sterling effort by Murray saw him chipping away at the advantage of the Kells driver. Murray just ran out of laps to mount a challenge, as Sloan completed a morale boosting heat and final double in some style. Derek Martin, McCurdy and Glenn Bell completed the top five.

A fine field of Unlimited National Bangers thrilled the fans as they always do, with Steven Bolton the first to show in the Tullyroan Supercup race. Amidst the carnage, Bolton got removed from the lead as Davey O’Connor raced past to take up the running. Local points champion Leonard Dunn was easily the fastest car on track though, and he soon raced ahead to take the silverware ahead of O’Connor and Kieran McIvor.
The Allcomers event saw Lisburn’s Rodney Herron take some huge hits as his Volvo got destroyed on the Tullyroan Bend, and it was former World Champion Bolton who led them home to take a great win over Dunn and McIvor.

A bruising Destruction Derby completed the night, with McIvor snatching the victory after a head to head with O’Connor. Tony Gillespie was named Entertainer of the Night, with Herron collecting the Best Wreck award.

A fantastic twenty Lightning Rods took to the grid for their Tullyroan Challenge Cup, with recent form man Stuart Agnew from Magheralin just getting the better of a great fight with Richard Stewart to take the win. World Champion Jackson made great progress to third ahead of Ally Neill, the latter back in his old car after a huge shunt at Aghadowey a week ago. The Agnew brothers have been a revelation in 2020 since switching to the Lightning Rods, and after Stuart’s heat one victory it was his brother Tam who grabbed the glory in heat two. In a grandstand finish as the front five raced to the line together, Tam got the verdict over Mark Corry and James McKinney.
On aggregate points Jackson had annexed pole position for the Tullyroan Challenge Cup final, and as a renowned ‘rain-master’ it was no surprise to see him quickly assume the lead. In a masterclass performance, Nigel underlined his World Champion status by racing to an emphatic win, with Neill also excelling in second ahead of McKinney and Tam Agnew.

A strong showing of twenty Superstox saw Ed Davis take a polished victory in heat one, relegating young star Graham Meek in the closing stages. Irish Champion Kyle Beattie laid down a marker in that one by charging through from the rear of the grid to third, and he went on to take the chequered flag in heat two after a blinding drive. Davis and Jamie McCann filled the places ahead of Sean Mark and David Beattie.
In the final McCann showed great pace early on the pull clear at the front, but as they headed for the closing stage he had Kyle Beattie looming large in his mirrors. The Aughnacloy star had given yet another lesson in wet weather driving, and he bumpered his way past McCann as they headed to the one lap to go marker. Kyle completed a great double for the evening, with McCann, David Beattie and Lee Davison rounding out the top four.
The Superstox got a 10 lap Dash For Cash to complete the evening, kindly sponsored by the Moffett family. McCann made up for losing out on the final win with a great victory in this one over Kyle Beattie and Mark.
