WALLY STROUPE REACHES EMOTIONAL FINAL ROUND AT PRESIDENT'S CUP NATIONALS

BUDDS CREEK, MD-- Wally Stroupe felt that he needed to prove a little something to himself. The veteran, Trim Parts sponsored Pro Modified driver had encountered some bad fortunes since returning from an untimely crash two races ago. He reversed his fortunes and rose to the final round at the final round of the President's Cup Nationals and finished runner-up to Scotty Cannon.

The win was a welcomed one for Stroupe and his King's Mountain, N.C., based team.

"This win was a real confidence builder," explained Stroupe. "We had some bad luck at Norwalk and Epping and to do well at Budd's Creek was a true blessing. I wanted this bad for my sponsor Trim Parts. They have stood by me through the tough times."

Stroupe was an underdog throughout eliminations. He did not let that deter his determination as he stopped Dale Brinsfield, the defending World Champion Shannon Jenkins and Ed Hoover en route to facing Cannon in the finals. Stroupe reacted quicker in the final, but tireshake hampered his effort and that allowed Cannon to roll to victory.
