This is Smith’s second career national event Wally. Six years ago, she defeated his husband in the Pro Stock Motorcycle final round at the 2014 National event at New England Dragway in Epping, New Hampshire.

It was a good day for the Smith family. Not only did Angie win the Wally at the final event of the season, but her husband Matt clinched the Pro Stock Motorcycle Championship in the second round of the event.
