In Pro Stock Motorcycle, Angelle Sampey made a big move at the most recent event in Bristol, winning her second race in the Countdown to the Championship to pull within 25 points of leader Matt Smith with two races remaining. Sampey has found her rhythm on her Mission Foods/Vance & Hines Suzuki at the perfect time, moving back into championship contention as she seeks a fourth career world title.
She’s impressed throughout the playoffs, qualifying No. 1 in Reading, winning in Charlotte and then grabbing the victory in Thunder Valley as well. She’s won twice in Las Vegas over the years, but it’s been since 2002 when she enjoyed her last triumph at the facility. Changing that this weekend would make things even more interesting in the two-wheeled category, where Smith is after his second straight title and fifth overall. It’s more than a two-bike race, too, with Steve Johnson still in contention at 56 points back of Smith and Eddie Krawiec 111 points out of first. Sampey, though, has been on an impressive late-season run.
“Things are coming around and I’m trying really hard,” Sampey said. “This team has worked so hard and deserves all this success. These guys bring out the best in me, and they’re all wonderful coaches and teammates. It took me a while to trust the motorcycle. It wasn’t the motorcycle, it was all me. I’m just finally coming around on it and things have been going well. I don’t know what’s going to happen at the end of the year, but it sure would be nice to get that No. 1 back on the motorcycle.”
