Sprint Cup Series Edit

Hall has one career Cup series start. Driving the #40 Kendall Oil Pontiac for Dick Brooks at the fall Rockingham race, he started last on the field in 40th position. With a crash about two-thirds of the way through the race, Hall backed the #40 into the wall, and finished 36th.

Busch Series Edit

Hall made his Busch debut in 1995 driving for Stegell Motorsports. Driving the #85 Lube America Chevy, Hall qualified 38th at Nashville Speedway USA and completed all but nine laps in route to a 26th place finish. He made one other start that year at Rockingham, starting 36th and finishing 22nd.

The Stegall team decided to do a part-time schedule in 1996, competing in 14 of the 26 races. His best run of the year was once again at Rockingham, where he had a 12th place finish and garnered his first career lead-lap finish. Hall gained his first career top-10 start of 9th at Bristol and then matched it two races later at Nazareth.

Hall and Stegall raced full time in 1997. Despite not making two races Hall earned his first career top-10 with a tenth-place finish at Watkins Glen International. Hall also won his first career pole at South Boston. He finished 23rd in points that season.

In 1998, Hall scored three top-10s. He won the pole at Gateway, and posted three top-ten finishes. He finished 19th in points that season.

For 1999, Hall switched over to the #43 team owned by Mike Curb, but struggled severely, as he did not qualify for 6 of the 31 races. Despite that, Hall scored his first career top-5 at Myrtle Beach with a fourth place effort. Yet once again, Hall struggled with 9 DNFs. At the end of the season, Hall was released from his ride.

Hall only made two starts in 2000. He raced for the newly formed #0 Alumni Motorsports Chevy, with Ohio State University sponsoring. With no owners points, Hall only made one of his few handful of starts, leading to his release early in the season.

Hall rebounded for 2001, singing with the #63 Hensley Racing Ford sponsored by Lance Snacks. Hall continued to struggle and managed only three top-20 finishes, the best of which was 12th at Daytona, resulting in a 23rd place in points.

After Ken Alexander bought the #63 team in 2002, Hall continued to drive the car, competing in 24 races. He managed a 10th place at Kentucky and had five other top-20 finishes. Hall was released from the ride at the end of the season. He has not had a regular ride since.

Hall made five races in 2003. Four of the starts were for Jay Robinson Racing, though he raced for three of JRR's teams. He drove the #39 Jay Robinson Ford at Nashville, with a 39th place, and the #89 Jay Robinson Ford at Nazareth (43rd). Driving the primary #49 for Jay Robinson, Shane finished 39th at the June Nashville race and 28th at Kentucky. In addition, Shane drove the #15 ppc Racing Ford at Memphis. He was 31st with handling problems.

Shane made nine more starts in 2004. He ran one race with Moy Racing at Gateway. He finished 31st in the #77 BG Products Ford. He ran two more races for JRR's #28 team, finishing 41st at IRP and 38th at Dover. The other races were for ORTEC Racing, finishing 19th at Daytona and 20th at Pikes Peak.

Jay Robinson Racing ran the #28 Ford for Shane in seven more races in 2005. His best finish was 33rd at Dover. However, Shane did not finish any races, and lost his ride in the #28 when Jay Robinson went to one team.

Shane has no current plans.
