Wall Completes SUPR Sweep at Pike County

MAGNOLIA, Miss. - April 3. Returning to a very familiar Pike County Speedway where he cut his racing teeth, Chris Wall survived a high attrition event to complete a clean sweep of the weekend's shows on the Southern United Professional Racing (SUPR) Series. Also for the second night in a row, the Holden, La. ace outran the same two former series champions Ray Moore and Rob Litton.  Unlike the previous night's racing, however, Wall raced unhampered throughout on the 3/8-mile oval.

While Wall was on cruise control for 40 laps, Moore's task posed a greater challenge, as the young north Louisiana driver was involved in a first-lap tangle with Robbie Stuart and Kyle Cummings, and with the series' rules that send every stopped car to the rear, both Moore and Stuart had to climb back into contention from the rear of the pack.

That job was made somewhat easier by a dwindling field of race cars, while up front, Wall's most serious challenger, David Ashley, was forced to retire just past the mid-point of the race with mechanical trouble. While Wall set sail, slowed only by a couple of late cautions, Moore caught and passed Litton with a quarter of the race to spare, but had nothing for the leader's fleet #71 MasterSbilt. With Litton taking third, Stuart drove back to fourth place to finish ahead of Monroe area ace Bubba Mullins.
