Angelle Sampey has left Team Liberty Racing. She is now a free agent in Pro Stock Motorcycle.
She would like to race again in 2019. At the moment, she is evaluating all options to continue to race.
“After the season ended in Pomona, Cory [Reed] and I sat down to discuss our future together and the direction of the team and as a result of those discussions, I decided that it was best to take a step back and look at other options,” she said. “I am extremely grateful to Cory Reed, the Whiteley family, and everyone at Liberty Racing for allowing me to be a part of the team and continue my career these last two seasons. We had our share of growing pains, but I’m proud that we were able to make it into the top ten this year.
“Joey Gladstone joined the team late in the season and he is going to run a full-season next year and Cory will also be returning on a full-time basis. The opportunity was there for us to race a third motorcycle, but that would require additional funding, and at this point, I just don’t have it.”
Sampey competed in 16 races this past season. She had a 12-14 round record. She did; however, go to two semi-finals.
She went to the semi-finals in May in Atlanta before losing to Scotty Pollacheck. He went 6.960 to her 6.976.
Then, at Charlotte 2 towards the end of the season, she lost to Matt Smith in the semi-final at zMAX Dragway. Smith went 6.869 to her 6.922.
“I believe I still have what it takes to be competitive; in fact, I think I’m in the best shape of my life,” she said. “Anyone who knows me understands that I wouldn’t do this if I didn’t think I still had the ability to win races and compete for championships. I still have the desire to compete at a high level, and I just need the opportunity to join the right organization.”
