Sampey to race for Klement, Rush Racing Products in 2008


Filed under Articles, NHRA

Ending weeks of speculation, Pro Stock Motorcycle team owners Karl and Kim Klement announced that
three-time NHRA POWERade champ Angelle Sampey will pilot their Rush Racing Products Buell in 2008.

Rush signed on as Klement's primary marketing partner just in time for the 2007 Countdown to the Championship. A short time later, the U.S. Army dropped their sponsorship of Sampey's team for 2008 and, eventually, one of the most popular figures in drag racing was available. Did Rush president Lou Pringle see this coming when he joined forces with Klement in September? "I never thought the Army would give us such a golden opportunity!" Pringle said with a laugh. "Given Angelle's popularity, she's a perfect marketing tool for our products. We're very excited."

"It's outrageously cool," said Rush CEO Terry Daniel. "It's very exciting for all parties concerned. It's been one heck of a ride for us, and we're really looking forward to 2008. Angelle's very professional and brings a lot to the table. And we have a great deal of respect for Karl Klement. He's a phenomenal fellow and runs a very professional team. He's very straightforward and he pursues winning, and I like that." ...

ANTRON BROWN AND MATCO TOOLS TEAM TO TEST AT GAINESVILLE


Filed under Articles, Links, NHRA

Antron Brown will again familiarize himself with the Matco Tools Top Fuel dragster when the David Powers-owned Top Fuel team begins its off season testing program at Gainesville (Fla.) Raceway on Dec. 17.

Brown and the Lee Beard-led team will test at the historic Florida drag strip Dec. 17-19 as Brown continues to acclimate himself to the Top Fuel dragster. The 16-time NHRA Pro Stock Motorcycle winner competed in the popular two-wheel category the past 10 years before being named to drive the Matco-backed rail in November. Brown twice was a championship runner-up in the bike class.

"I'm real anxious and can't wait to get started with our test session in Florida," Brown said. I'm excited to work with our new crew at the race track. I feel we have an all star cast of crew members led by Lee Beard. We're having a great time at the shop, but we really want to fire-up this Matco Tools dragster. Our goal is to get my Top Fuel license and make some really consistent laps in the dragster.”
