Angie Smith becomes first woman in 200-mph PSM club

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

Denso Auto Parts sponsored Pro Stock Motorcycle rider Angie Smith is the first female PSM rider to get into the 200-mph club. She accomplished this feat during the first qualifying session on Saturday at the AAA Fall Nationals at the Texas Motorplex in Ennis, Texas.

Smith went 6.809 at 200.89 mph to claim the honor. Her run was only beat by her husband, who was the provisional No. 1 qualifier following the first session with a 6.808 at 200.71 mph.

“When your sponsor runs the Denso 200-mph Club, all you want to do is go 200 mph,” she said. “It’s been such a burden on me and I’ve been on [Matt’s] butt the whole time, telling ‘I want to go 200,’ and he just told me that I needed to put it all together. I’m so happy for my team; they have stood behind me and encouraged me.”

Besides Smith, she is joined in the 200-mph club by her husband Matt Smith and her teammate Scotty Pollacheck. Lucas Oil sponsored rider Hector Arana Jr. and Harley-Davidson rider Eddie Krawiec are also in the club.

“We have really good air and a little tail/side wind, our bikes have a lot of power, and now we have three bikes on the club,” said Matt. “It’s such an honor to ride for Denso, the sponsor of the club. Their Iridium spark plugs are the key, and Lucas Oil.”
