Mooresville, NC 4/1/14: After Caleb Holman continued his domination at Southern National two weeks ago the X-1R Pro Cup Series moves to the Hickory Motor Speedway for the second race of the season. Last year Clay Rogers did the clean sweep at the .363 mile track, but now with Rogers out of the picture it’s anyones guess who will take home the $8,000 check at nights end. Newcomer Matt Craig and Hickory Motor Speedway regular Doug Barns Jr. will both be making their series debut but are expected to challenge for top five finishes when the checkered flag flies. Series sophomores Reid Wilson, who sat the pole at this race a year ago, and Brady Boswell, who lead almost 100 laps before settling for second position last fall, should also be ones to watch Saturday night.
