Team Liberty Racing Race Wrap-Up: Brainerd NHRA Nationals

BRAINERD, Minn. (August 19, 2018) Angelle Sampey carried the Team Liberty Racing banner on raceday at the 37th annual Lucas Oil NHRA Nationals as she defeated Joey Gladstone on the way to her fifth quarterfinal appearance of 2018.

Qualified: No. 10
First Round: Angelle Sampey (6.970 191.73) def. Joey Gladstone (7.006, 188.62)
Second Round: Hector Arana J (6.938, 193.77) def. Angelle Sampey (7.012, 191.27)

I know that round win was really important to stay in the top ten, Sampey said. I dont get nervous often when Im racing but I was definitely nervous in the first round because I knew getting the points was really important for my chances to get into the Countdown to the Championship. I really want to stay in the top ten and I know with how Im riding, the power that Larry Morgan gives us, and the way Ken [Johnson] and Derrell [Mullis] are tuning this bike, we have a winning combination. Weve just gotta get some luck to come our way.
