The Vance & Hines Harley-Davidson team announced three-time NHRA Pro Stock Motorcycle champion Angelle Sampey will compete at all 16 national events on a Harley Street Rod. Initially the deal was for four events with the possibility of more.
“In Gainesville we saw how well Angelle interacted with the fans and how well she fit in with her new team and this was an easy decision,” team co-owner Terry Vance told NHRA.com. “We just didn’t want her in a position where she felt a lot of extra pressure during the first four races, so we went ahead and extended the deal.”
Sampey, the 42-time national event winner, was thrilled.
“I think this was the second-best phone call I’ve gotten this year, right after the call in January where I was first hired,” Sampey said. “I can’t thank Harley-Davidson and Vance & Hines enough for believing in me.”
The Pro Stock Motorcycle series resumes April 5-7 in Las Vegas, Nev.
