Hall has one career Cup Series Start. Driving the #40 Kendall Oil Pontiac for Dick Brooks at the fall Rockingham race in 1995, he started last. With a crash about two-thirds through the race, Hall backed the #40 into the wall, and finished 36th.
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 finished 26th, nine laps down. He made another start that year in Rockingham, finishing 22nd.
The Stegall team decided to run part-time in 1996, competing in 14 of the 26 races. His best run 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-ten start when he qualified 9th at Bristol, matching it two races later Nazareth.
Hall and Stegall ran full-time 1997. Despite not making two races, Hall earned his first career top-ten with a tenth-place finish at Watkins Glen International, while also winning his first career pole at South Boston.
In 1998, Hall scored three top-tens and a pole at Gateway.
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-five at Myrtle Beach with a fourth-place effort. Yet once again, Hall struggled with 9 DNFs. He was released at the end of the year.
Hall only made two starts in 2000, running for the newly formed #0 Alumni Motorsports Chevy, with Ohio State University as the sponsor. With no owners' points, he struggled to qualify for many races, and was released.
Hall rebounded in 2001, signing with the #63 Hensley Racing Ford, sponsored by Lance Snacks. Hall continued to struggle and managed only 3 top 20 finishes, the best of which was 12th at Daytona International Speedway.
After Ken Alexander bought the #63 Team in 2002, Hall continued to drive the car, competing in 24 races. He managed a tenth-lace finish at Kentucky and had 5 other top-20s. Hall was released from the ride at the end of the year.
Hall made five Races in 2003, four of which were for Jay Robinson Racing, though with three different numbers. He drove the #39 at Nashville, with a 39th-place finish, and the #89 at Nazareth, finishing last. Next, driving the #49, Hall finished 39th at the June Nashville Race and 28th at Kentucky. In addition, he drove the #15 PPC Racing Ford at Memphis, finishing 31st.
Hall made nine more Starts in 2004. He ran at Gateway with Moy Racing in the #77 BG Products Ford, finishing 31st. He ran two more races for JRR in the #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.
He ran seven races with JRR in the #28 car in 2005, with a best finish of 33rd at Dover. However, he failed to finish any races, and was released. In 2006, he ran part-time with JRR's #28, contesting nine races, while failing to qualify for seven. After taking a year off in 2007, Hall returned to the then-renamed Nationwide Series in 2008 for 1 race at Nashville, driving the #49 for JRR.
