HIGHLANDS, Texas (July 28) — Ray Moore of Shreveport, La., charged from his sixth starting spot in Saturday’s Southern United Professional Racing tour event at Battleground Speedway and earned a $2,500 victory that gave the former series champion a sweep of all three of the SUPR tour's 2012 events at the Houston-area dirt track. | Slideshow

Moore, who won series events at Battleground's 3/8-mile oval on Friday night and June 2, moved to the lead just a few laps into Saturday night's 40-lap feature and led polesitter Kevin Sitton of Baytown, Texas, to the checkers while Allen Tippen of Minden, La., took third placed. Ronny Adams of Diana, Texas, finished fourth from the 13th starting spot with Rob Litton of Alexandria, La., rounding out the top five.

Notes: Moore's MB2 Customs Chassis is powered by a Jay Dickens Racing Engine and sponsored by Diamond Completion Equipment, Moore Wireline Inc, tic Tools International, X-Treme Graphics, Mars Race Cars, J&J Motorsports and Smith's Towing. … Tippen’s third-place run unofficially tied him with Litton for the series points lead. … John Whittington of Vidor, Texas, moved to second late in the race and was closing the gap before tangling with a lapped car. … Defending series champion Morgan Bagley of Longview, Texas, battled up to fifth before a flat tire sent him to the pit area with a handful of laps remaining. …. The SUPR tour returns to action Aug. 11 with a $2,500-to-win event at Greenville (Miss.) Speedway.
