Team Liberty Racing Event Preview: 39th annual Mopar Mile-High NHRA Nationals

CORDELE, GA. (July 17, 2018) – Cory Reed and Angelle Sampey will be taking their Team Liberty Racing Buells to the mountain to compete in the seventh of 16 events at Bandimere Speedway this weekend for the 39th annual Mopar Mile-High NHRA Nationals. Sampey is currently No. 9 in the Pro Stock Motorcycle point standings and Reed is less than one round shy of being in the top ten.


  • Bandimere Speedway is Reed’s home track

  • 35 races in Pro Stock Motorcycle

  • Last year’s performance: qualified No. 10; lost first round to Jerry Savoie

QUOTABLE: “I’m still looking to grab my first Pro Stock Motorcycle win of my career and if I could get it done at Bandimere Speedway, that’d be awesome,” Reed said. “We tested a bunch of stuff at Norwalk after the race and I think we found things that will hurt some feelings. My reaction times haven’t been where I expect them to be lately and we switched up some stuff to change that.” “Bandimere Speedway is special to me because I’ve been coming to this racetrack since my dad bracket raced back in the day and I’ve been here so many times racing Jr. Dragsters and with my parent’s Top Alcohol cars too. My parent’s [Top Alcohol Funny Car driver Annie Whiteley and Pro Mod racer Jim Whiteley] don’t compete at this race so it’s nice to have them come hang out with us. I always seem to do better when they’re out at the races with me.”


  • Bandimere Speedway is where Sampey made her Pro Stock Motorcycle debut in 1996

  • Two wins (2000 over Matt Hines, 2001 over Antron Brown)

  • Three runner-up performances (1998 to Matt Hines, 2002 to Matt Hines, 2007 to Matt Smith)

QUOTABLE: “Denver will always hold a special place in my heart because this is where I made my Pro Stock Motorcycle debut,” Sampey reminisced. “After two DNQ’s this year, we really dug deep and bounced back in Norwalk. The DNQ’s were a hard pill to swallow but I decided to use the experience as a life lesson for my daughter Ava. I hope we showed her that when times get tough, you don’t give up. I hope we showed her that you can work hard and do well; we’re not gonna quit.”
