Wall Completes SUPR Sweep at Pike
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.

the race with mechanical trouble. While Wall set sail, slowed only by a couple of late cautions, Moore caught

Litton taking third, Stuart drove back to fourth place to finish ahead of Monroe area ace Bubba
