Sampey, Bryce ready for reunion tour

Posted: Updated:

March 7, 2008

Cecil -  NHRA Pro Stock Motorcycle champion Angelle Sampey planned to race one more season with George Bryce before she retired.

Sampey is not thinking retirement but she is reunited with her crew chief  George Bryce for the 2008 NHRA season.

The duo won 30 races and three consecutive NHRA Pro Stock Motorcycle championships before sponsorship issues forced them to part ways six years ago.

Sampey needs just five wins to become the winningest Pro Stock Motorcycle driver in NHRA history.

A lot has changed in the six years Bryce and Sampey raced together but both believe they can win a lot of rounds, races and maybe even another championship.

Angelle Sampey said "With having more races, your season is longer. It is a litte more difficult. The competition has stepped up. Anybody out of 11 or 12 racers out here this year can win the championship. It is going to be tough."  

Angelle Sampey and the Klement racing team are in action at the ESTN nationals this weekend at the South Georgia Motorsports Park in Cecil.

They are preapring for their first NHRA race of the season next weekend at the Gatornationals in Gainesville.
