Vyasa Bharat did not mention any names of Karna's wives. Neither Vrishali nor Supriya were mentioned in the Epic. Even Duryothan's wife was not mentioned by name.
Karna's wives were mentioned in two places ..on two important occasions.
In Udyoga Parva

Karna tells Krishna.
It is that Adhiratha, again, who caused the name Vasusena to be bestowed upon me by the Brahmanas. When also I attained to youth, I married wives according to his selections. Through them have been born my sons and grandsons,CXLI
Here Karna did not refer his wives with names.
In Stri Parva
